As you are likely using a PC to view AVSForum, you'll find that if you upload the manual from the CD to your PC or download it from Denon's website, it is actually much easier to review without having to print out a hard copy. This is what I have done in order to reference the necessary information I post.

I did make a copy of the manual on the computer when I first setup the receiver. Then I needed to format the hard drive and reinstall everything and I never put the manual back on. I figured I new most of the info (funny). I will be making a copy again since I will be setting up a second zone soon. I think I will go over the rest of my setup as well.

One other problem that I have is when I'm streaming music from my computer or using airplay the music will sometimes dropout for a second. I find it does not do it all the time. Pandora works perfectly. When I had my onkyo system it was so bad I could not listen. I have newer linksys E3200 router but I feel it has something to do with the network. I also think it works better if I reset the network before I use any of those inputs. Any thoughts on why? I have DHCP on. Airplay works great most of the time. Only infrequently it drops out. Streaming from my pc using the media server function in network is pretty bad.

Are you using a wired or wireless network connection?
Wired is much more reliable than wireless.

I have a Monster digital express powernet 200. One is connected to the wireless router in another room and plugged into a outlet, the other is in the living room where the receiver is located. Out from the monster to a 5 way switch witch feeds my PS3, satellite receiver and my Marantz. It uses the AC power lines to send the data. All connections are wired. I have suspected this device may be a issue so I ran a long ethernet cable from the router to the receiver just to test it and it seemed to make no difference. I still wonder about the monster thing.

If they work at all, most power-line networking devices work fine. (They can't work unless the adapters are connected to the same phase of the incoming AC power -- most U.S. homes are supplied with 2 of the 3 power phases coming from the power company.) Of course, if you have something on the power circuit that generates a lot of noise (like a heavy-duty electrical motor turning on and off), that could cause problems.

It could be a problem caused by "valid" traffic your local network. Perhaps something is intermittently generating a lot of traffic and interfering with other network traffic. Audio and video transmissions have to be able to deliver a constant stream of data. Most other types of inter-computer data traffic don't care if there are dropouts. You don't notice them retrying.

You might consider using some free network monitor software like Wireshark to see what your network is doing.

I will try the wireshark program but I really don't know much about networks. Maybe it will tell me something. Interesting thought about a HD motor or something turning on and causing a slight blip. The only things I could think of would be a refrigerator or possibly the heat pumps turning on. I think I will run the super long ethernet cable again and test a direct connection just to see if it might be associated with the AC wiring. 95% of the time it works fine. Thanks for the tips!

You're very welcome. Sorry I can't really help with Wireshark. I just know it's very popular network monitoring software.

I don't have a lot of previous speaker experience but I've listened to the RF-52s and find the Icons to have less bright Klipsch sound than the reference series. I like them more than the previous generation polk monitors which my coworker has. The center suffers from the same thing that all horizontal in-axis centers suffer from but seems fine when in the sweet spot. The cabinets look very nice in our living room. I couldn't find the matching Icon sub but I'm currently the RW-12D and the complete setup is very nice.

I wonder if anyone has done any A/B comparison between the onboard DAC of the 5007 and the onboard Wolfson DAC in Pioneer's BDP51FD? I simply adore CD music produced by that DAC and would hate to take a step down in quality, if the AVRs DAC isn't as good or better.

Hmmm. Just hooked up an Emotiva XPA-200 amplifier to the pre-amp LF/RF outs of the Marantz SR-5007. Up to then I'd had only a subwoofer connected to the SW1 out, to a Canton Sub10 which had worked fine.

Now there is no bass output from the sub, although it is on (set to trigger on when input received). No other settings changed in the Marantz...

Any ideas what might be going on or how to fix?

---
edit: I just powered SR-5007 and XPA-200 off, then started both and now playing an audio source (that has plenty of bass in the recording) there is no bass signal going to the subwoofer. It is off.

Gotcha.., LFE is now coming through as it should on the sub. Thanks.

Re-running Audyssey is definitely needed then?

Yup ... indeed so as the XPA-200 likely has a different gain setting then do the internal amps of the AVR. You should rerun Audyssey anytime there is any "physical" change in your configuration in the way of adding more speakers/subs, external amps, or repositioning the speakers/sub.

question for you or anyone else if they could help.

I am considering/looking at getting the same Emotiva amp to connect to my front towers( Goldenear Triton2) to improve my 2 channel sound from cdp.

before I drop the cash on the amp I want to make sure that I am doing this right.

I would still use the AVR to watch movies with the 2 towers ( have built in subs) center and rear sats

1. what setting on the AVR would I use so that the input from the cdp goes through untouched/unprocessed to the Emotiva?

2. what/how do I watch movies or is there a special avr setting to get the 5 speaker sound processing by the AVR while the fronts are connected to the Emotiva.

sorry a av noob

I'm having an issue that when I boot up my HTPC the receiver will show it as having a signal, but at some point the "no signal," appears and then I can't get the signal back from the HTPC. However, if I unplug it from my receiver and directly into the tv, there is a signal. Not sure if something in the settings is causing the signal to kick off and then the receiver isn't able to restore, or if the receiver is defective.

a. Don't expect much in the way of improvement if the 5007 amps aren't being pushed to max now.

1. DIRECT, however, in most cases this is not recommended as it also disables Audyssey.

2. No special setting, simply rerun Audyssey again with the amp connected.

In my setup using an outboard amp with the 1603 (not yet with sr5007 but still intend to), it does make a difference in my case, I use DIRECT.

I did not know that this mode, DIRECT also disables Audyssey, but then it is not relevant, as I am not listening to 5.1, or 7.1, or 7.2 channels, but only care for 2 stereo channels?

From another perspective, you seems to suggests that Audyssey can also be set up, i.e. calibrated for 2.0 or 2.1 if I wanted to (sorry I have not read the complete FAQ on Audyssey thoroughly, if the answer is obvious)? And that I can save this settings on a PC, then recall it whenever needed, switching from HT to pure stereo listening?

If this is correct, all do-able, then Audyssey is really a good tool: to drive each speaker properly to compensate for the room's defficiency and listening positions!

Audyssey works just as well for two speakers as for a 11.2 system. It sends a series of chirps through each speaker channel and sets filters for each speaker channel to make its audio output as accurate as possible in your listening environment.

You have to rerun Audyssey every time you make a change in the room's acoustics, number of speakers or their placement, or if you add or remove amps.

You can save all of the receiver's internal settings to a PC for later restoration.

These and other important considerations are discussed in the Audyssey FAQ. See http://www.avsforum.com/t/795421/official-audyssey-thread-faq-in-post-1/51750#post_21782993

The Audyssey instructions in the manufacturers' manuals are overly simplified.

Hello All,
Happy owner of a Marantz sr5007. Everything is working well except that I would like to listen to my Direct Tv audio in zone 2. All I need is audio. I believe I can connect an optical cable to the unit from the Direct tv box.

Any advice would be appreciated. All I'm trying to do is listen to the audio.

HDMI and optical/digital coax audio will not pass to Zone 2. Rather you must connect a RCA red/white cable instead.

Ok. I had read another post where they suggested optical. Oh well.
Hopefully last question; will they work simultaneously?

Thanks again.

Yeah, most modern AVRs (your SR5007 included) do not allow digital audio to be played in the second or third zones, only analog stereo.

Hello,

I am new to the AVS forum, although I have been reading through the forums for years. I am about to become an owner of several new pieces of audio equipment and have a couple questions.

Here is what I will be installing or already have:

1. 2 Klipsch WF-35 (espresso)
2. 1 Klipsch WC-24 (espresso)
3. 1 Klipsch SW-308 (w/WA-2 wireless kit)
4. 1 xbox kinnect
5. 1 DirecTV sat box
6. 1 Oppo BD-103 bluray
7. 1 55" Panasonic VT50

My question is about the right receiver to purchase. After several weeks of reviewing every model of receiver, I think I have narrowed it down to either the Denon 2313CI or Marantz 5007. I thought I had settled on the Marantz, but after reviewing the Denon, I wasn't sure.

Based on my set-up, which would be better for my situation? Ideally, i would like to stay under $1000 for the receiver.

Thanks in advance and I look forward to contributing to the forum!
