The setting that gives me personally the best volume or room filling sound for listening to music is multi channel stereo selection. but sucks the new def tech 350 wont come on.???

Audio should be passed to either the Front Height or the Front Wide when Multi CH Stereo is selected. The "Speaker Select" setting (p. 114 Owner's manual) must be set to either Front Height or Front Wide if you want audio to come from those speakers.

Why not let your own ears be the judge. Cycle Audyssey ON and OFF and select the one you prefer the best. You can also select "Bypass Front L/R" if you prefer as well.

I re-ran Audyssey a couple of times on my 5.1 system and Audyssey is setting my centre channel to crossover @ 40 hz while my full-size towers are crossing at 60 hz. This happens when I am using the SR7007's internal amps or when I use an external amp for the R, C, and L speakers. After saving the settings, I raise the crossover to 80 for all speakers except for my surrounds which I leave at 90 hz. The towers are Energy RC-70 and the centre is an Energy RC-LCR.

Should I try to rearrange the furniture or speakers to get Audyssey to raiser the crossover from 40 to 60 or 80?

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

If your center speaker is ideally positioned (ie. angled up towards your head and not your knees) there's nothing further to adjust.

The centre is on my tv stand, pulled out so it overhangs the shelf, angled up towards mlp. It sounds fine so I'll just leave it as is. Thanks.

I did exactly that. Sr8002. To sr7007. Downgraded power. Uprgraded features
Unlike you. I was unhappy with the sr8002. It never sounded quite right, most likely due to something i did. But the gui was prctically useless. For 2 grand. Eh.
The sr7007 blows it out of the water. Tho with 4 ohm kefs. I felt i needed an amp for the fronts.
I purchased both the sr7007 and mm7025 for half what the sr8002 cost me
Granted. Its years since either was new

Sub Levels

I did set up FL/FR to small/80Hz when calibrating with Audyssey. Do I need to do this again in manual set up to be applicable to stereo play back?
Thanks!!
Ok find out my bass problem. To get a sub level of -6.5 after Audyssey calibration I have to lower the sub gain to the 8:30pm position, barely above the lowest position. I didn’t try to get the sub level to +/-3 been so low already. The sub comes on during movies. During 2 channel music it also comes on since I have the mains set as small and 80 Hz crossover, but can hardly hear the bass. Is there a way to manage this besides turning the sub gain up during 2 channel playback? That’s what I did so, by changing the sub gain after Audyssey calibration will cancel out the calibration? Even if I turn it back to 8:30pm position? I kind like to hear more bass that what I hear after Audyssey calibration. Anybody had the same experience?

Leave the sub gain at the 8:30 position. After running Audyssey, many owners prefer to raise the Subwoofer Level (on the AVR) up about +5db, so in your case, raise it to -1.5db.

JD, It appears my 7007 is dead within a year. No power indicator. Nothing happens. I took out the power cable and left it for 24 hours. Still nothing..It was plugged in to clean power using battery backup UPS as well. All other components TV, DVD, sub etc..no issues. Wonder what happened..

Any ideas what should be my next course of action?

Perhaps just a loose power cable connection? Otherwise, the AVR has a 3 year warranty, so warranty repair would be the next step.

So I just purchased one of these SR7007's and everything about it is pretty good compared to the NR1504 it replaces, but...

What's the deal with all of this hiss coming from all of the channels?!?! Even when listening in only stereo mode, there's still hiss coming from the center and surrounds. In fact, the hiss even comes from the main channels which are being powered by an outboard amp. I've had in rotation a Marsh MSD A200s, an Audio Research D130, and an Odyssey Audio Khartago Kismet (fully loaded). No matter what amp I use or if I plug the main channels directly into the SR7007, I still get that stupid hiss. Even in Pure Direct mode, the same hiss. And keep in mind, this is at the listening seat about 12 feet away from the speakers which are Monitor Audio BX6's, center and surrounds being AV123 X-Voce and X-Statik, all of which are 90dB @ 1w/1m.

With my little NR1504, that thing is dead silent, even with your ears right up against the tweeters.

So what gives? Does anyone have an honest answer about this? Is there any kind of solution for it?

Also, I want to add that this hiss is constant. It does NOT change with volume. It's the same amount of hiss at -65 or at -0 on the volume. The only time it does not exist is in the middle of switching sources or if you hit the "Mute".


BTW, this is my second SR7007 as the first one started flaking out within the first 24 hours. I sent it back and was sent another one. This one had real bad hum until I traced it to the cable box which I then ran the coax through my APC H15 first, and now the hum is completely gone. That darn hiss certainly isn't though.

Any info/help will be greatly appreciated.

That's the only answer?

The first unit also had this problem, and I've read about others on here with the same problem. Does anyone know of the cause of this hiss?

The majority of owners have had no issues at all, however, there will always be a few defective units that get past quality testing. If the hiss occurs with no sources connected, replace it. As an aside, the AVR needs more air circulation above it. Suggest you remove the component from beneath it.

Not at all. I said if you disconnect ALL source inputs and the issue still occurs, then it's a fault of the AVR. I would also suggest disconnecting the power and cable from the wall to the cable/sat box as well as disconnecting the HDMI cable to the AVR as in some cases, the cable/sat box has been known to cause problems in which case using the product below would resolve the issue.

What is reference volume level on the SR 7007? I am coming for a Yamaha and am use to turning a Blu Ray to -10. But the Maratz is only positive numbers.

Either 80 or 0db depending on which volume scale you are using and also after running Audyssey.

It looked like 80 will be full blast. Is that normal for the reciver? Only got to play with it for a few minutes after lunch.

Most will never raise it much above 60 (ie. -20db); however, as a rule of thumb you should never raise above 80 to ensure there is enough headroom available.
