I wouldn't buy a refurb (comes with only 1 year warranty) without also buying a 3 year extended warranty as replacement of an HDMI board (rare but does happen) can set you back $500.

Marantz SR7007 sound fields ?

I recently upgraded from a Yamaha RX-V2500 non hdmi receiver to a Marantz SR7007 hdmi model. The Yamaha had "pre programmed surround programs" for both audio and video listening. In video mode there were options for different genres "sports/adventure/theatre/etc" in audio there were options for different listening experiences such a Vienna Hall, Jazz room, etc. I can't seem to find anything like this on the Marantz other than the Audessy setup, and pure direct type modes.
What am I missing? Doesnt Marantz have anything like this?

Not like Yamaha, no. Available modes can be selected by pressing/holding the MOVIE/MUSIC/GAME buttons.

Is it true I cannot use Bose 901s with the Marantz SR7007 because the 7007 has no pre-amp out or tape ports? The Bose 901 equalizer needs tape or pre-amp out ports on the receiver.

The SR7007 has a full set of 7.1 main zone pre-outs and 7.1 EXT IN inputs; however using them will disable Audyssey which will likely do a much better EQ job then the Bose EQ. Try it both ways and use the config that you prefer.

Why no SUB on Marantz SR7007 Phono ?

I just bought this receiver and it seems I have one question after another.
I got around today to connecting a turntable. Yes, an analog, old fashioned 33 1/3 rpm turntable. (One of 4 I have)

Anyway,
i got the inputs set up, and LP turntable works.
But ..

my Music sound options are:
Stereo L + R
Multi Channel Stereo which is L + R + C + SR + SL (no Sub)
Virtual which is also L + R + C + SR + SL (no Sub)
PLII Music which is L + R
NEO 6 Music which is L + R + C + SR + SL (no Sub)

My question is
WHY NO SUB?

I have it, it's connected, and it works just fine in TV/DVD/BluRay mode.

jdsmoothie:

I haven't bought the Bose 901s yet... not sure I will. So you think Audyssey will work with the 901s? I don't have any other speakers so the 901s will be my only ones. I heard that the Bose EQ is needed to adjust bass and treble and tune those speakers so they are "just right" but if Audyssey can do that then I don't know why I'd need the Bose EQ.

Thank you!

David

Other than a lot of marketing hype, there are better speakers for 1/2 the price. I'd look at Klipsch and Def Tech.

Funny you should say that. I just listened to a pair of Definitive Technology speakers yesterday and am picking up a pair this weekend to try out with my system. They are more money than the 901s but if they sound good I'm going to go for it.

I find the same thing. I am just in the process of hooking up my new SR7007 and if I play a music CD in my blu-ray, there's no sub either, and it plays only in 2 channel. Hope there's a solution to this.

I often get "format error" message when trying to play files via USB. All files are compatible format. Any ideas?

Fwiw, I absolutely love my new sr7007. Paired with polk rti10's and a polk csa6 center and kef sub and rears, it brings to life the video from the Sony qualia 004 projector.
Maybe I don't know what to listen for, or maybe I'm too old, but I think it's a great setup.

Will my Sr7007 be able to drive 6 ohm speakers very well? I am considering these speakers:

Got a problem playing back some SACD on my SR7007. Problem is that some SACD play in multichannel mode and some not. My CD player is a OPPO 103. I got it set up to:
-Play Back Set Up:
SACD Priority-Multi Channel
-Audio format setup:
HDMI Audio- Bitstream
SACD Output- DSD
I got the Oppo connected to the Sr 7007 via HDMI cable. No problem playing multichannel blu-rays dvd’s
Not sure if is a Marantz or Oppo issue.
What you guys think?
Thanks!!!

When the issue is on some sources, but not all, more often then not it's a source issue, so either the SACD's themselves or the Oppo.

I listen to lots and lots of SACD through the SR7007 and mytrusty Marantz DV9500 universal player connecting through 7.1 ch. input. I usethe Audioquest Jaguar interconnects cables and listen through the pure/directsetting on the SR7007.
I only have owned my SR7007 for a little over 8 months and love it. I do have a question to ask about some what off topic. Does any one see any reson for me to up grade to a new SACD/ OPPO or would I gain nothing by doing this ? Thanks.
PS My DV9500 works perfect but just wondering.

Many of the Oppo owners that have posted in the forum generally agree that connecting via HDMI and using Audyssey is better than using the better DACs in the Oppo with multi analog output cables which then disables Audyssey, although there are a few that prefer going the analog route with music listening only. Bottom line, unless you want to upgrade to the better video quality from the Oppo, stand pat.

Do any of you know how to add a "radio station" on Spotify on a marantz SR7007? I don't think it is possible with the current implementation of Spotify on the SR7007. Truly frustrating.
