All of the Atmos discs that I've watched use the standard 48K/s sampling rate. Soundtrack quality normally is the result of the quality of the people doing the audio mixing.

Max Volume Issue

HI,

I have had a Max volume issue for a while. It will not currently turn up past 91.5. I have the Marantz App on my iphone and have made sure the Max volume is set to off. I went in and moved it to a max, allowed it to set the level and then went back turn it to off to make sure that is reset. I have also gone into the Marantz menu and made sure it is turned to off. Any other ideas? Yes 91.5 is loud but there are some songs that would be nice to have the max available. Thanks for input and ideas.

What are your speaker and sub trims set to? If they are set quite high then the max volume is limited in order to preserve headroom. For example, if you have a total trim boost of 15dB then your max volume will be 15dB down. I am not familiar with the absolute volume scale, so not sure how much higher than 91.5 it should go, but if you set it to the relative volume scale it will tie in with the dBs as indicated in your trim settings.

Front L -5, Front R -5.5, Center -3.5, Sub shows -6 in Audyssey but I fluctuate the sub all the time depending on what I am listening to.

Then it isn't that which is causing the problem. I am out of ideas now though, sorry. At least, one possible cause has been eliminated.

Ok fellow AVS friends, i have been messing with this beast for the past few days.. on my adventure I encountered a small ground loop hum... flipped my ground switch on my A52 amp and 2125 amp, back and forth and let the Parasound's warm up a bit .. voilia... Gone! Haven't heard it since.. maybe i got lucky , i don't know .. but i seem to get it when i first hook up the amp's to a new pre/pro.. it did the same thing to me when i used the Yam Z7 at first and then went away...!! YAY! #2 cable/sat went haywire on the audio.. reset the microprocessor once.. and then my cable box.. all gone..... #3 I wasn't getting alot of bass.. turns out i didn't set audessey right the first time and had accidentally skipped the subwoofer calibration test, DOH! LOL... fixed all of that business.. and i am starting to dial this thing in and OMG ... it is sounds amazingly different than my old piece, and in a good way , of course.. rich, yet clear.. there is more "there", there.. if you get my drift.. movies sound more real.. i am listening to a dexter gordon blue note Ron Mcmaster cd on my Oppo 105 as I type this..i feel like i am there with him.. it sounds more like an LP.. this is a true pre-amp IMO.... man ... and i have barely scratched the surface of this thing.. Thor sounded unlike i have heard it in my room... more to come guys.. i may have some more to ask you guys possibly.. thanks to Audiofan1 and the rest of you guys for guiding me on this fun journey..
