So I have a klipsch Sub 10 and the SR5007. Have dialed the sub to gain to 50% and get -12 on the sub level. Turningn it to about 9 o clock i get -8.
I have heard that im supposed to get atleast -3.5.

My initial reaction is to turn the gain even more, but that would leave me without any bass. What should i do?

"A general rule when level matching the subs and the speaker channels is to run the gain hotter at the subs and the AVR sub trim level cooler. That keeps the AVR sub signal clean and allows upward adjustability to run the sub hotter if needed."

So from what i understand from everyone was that i shoukd turn my gain down to get in the sub in the -3 to 0 range.

But reading the quote above it seems i should raise the gain on the sub and use to get a level of about -10/-12 by the Audysey and use the AVR to adjust the sub level to -3 to -2.

Am i understanding this correctly?

Subs are generally very efficient so you may have to dial it back to as much as 7 or 8 o'clock noting the sub will still pass plenty of bass.

Your understanding is correct. Bottom line is that as long as the sub trim is NOT set to -12db then you'r'e good to go; however, getting within that -3db to 0db range generally ensures the AVR will pass a strong enough signal to trigger the sub ON when it's set to Auto.

That means the two practices contradict each other.

A. "A general rule when level matching the subs and the speaker channels is to run the gain hotter at the subs and the AVR sub trim level cooler. That keeps the AVR sub signal clean and allows upward adjustability to run the sub hotter if needed."

B.you adviced to turn the gain down on the sub lower than 50%, to 9 o clock or even lower, so that the Audeyseey can set the sub closer to around -3 to 0.

Statement B implies lowering that gain below 50% on the sub, so that Audeyssey lowers the sub level.

Statement A implies raising keeping the gain at 50% on the sub or above, so that audeyssey can set it to around -12. And this way you can manually adjust it to the level you want on the Avr.

Which is right, cause it seems each one is contradicting?

Okay .. so I see where your confusion lies now. The general guideline provided in Statement B is where you want the "final" sub trim level to be set regardless of whether you make any further "preference" adjustments or not. So for example, if you prefer to boost your sub say 5db hotter than what it is set to after running Audyssey, then you will want to raise the gain on the sub a bit and run Audyssey again which will result in a lower negative sub level setting (eg. -8db); however, after you raise the sub level to suit your preference (say +5db) the final result will be -3db and so still within the range in Statement B. Bottom line is not to get caught up with trying to be exactly in that range, rather simply that when your preference settings are complete, you want the sub trim level closer to 0db than to either +12db or -12db.

I do method a. If you don't you won't have any bass. I used the other method and thought I had a junk sub. Got on the chat with svs and they told me to run hotter at the sub. And they know all about audyssey. It's all use preference.

Thats what I was afraid of. I think most people like with the sub running a bit "hotter". Lowering the sub to the levels of what Audyseyy says is best is indeed more "reference", but not what most people like.

But if you do option B, you could also raise the bass level from the AVR.

You can do the same with option a, only it gets a cleaner signal that way. A is the way to go for hot bass. I like obscenely hot bass in the words of ed mullen from svs.

I haven't heard anything but maybe it hasn't been quiet enough in the room to hear it.

I'm having intermittent issues with the iPod interface on my 5007.

To get consistent handshaking between the ipod and the 5007, I need to plug in and turn on the ipod, then turn turn on the 5007, and then select the ipod/usb input on the remote. Without doing this, the 5007 shows either "no connection" or "no results" when looking at the ipod.

Also, at times, the ipod gets locked up in the middle of playback and just sits there... hard boot required to fix this, but does.

Has anyone else ran into either of these issues?

I am wondering if my 5007 is the culprit, or if its my ipod thats causing the issues. I haven't gotten a chance to test another ipod, but will when I can.

Anybody see this on the Crutchfield.com site about the SR5008 ??
http://www.crutchfield.com/p_642SR5008/Marantz-SR5008.html?tp=179

Looks exactly the same as the 5007 at least through the compare feature.

I don't think the 5007 has HDAM does it?

Marantz's Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module (HDAM) offers improved dynamic range and detail while reducing noise

Nope. HDAM starts with the 7007.

Is anyone experiencing itunes randomly pausing songs when listening through airplay? It happens often to me, don't know if it's itunes or the sr5007 losing contact.
I stream through an airport express and have it connected to the sr5007 through a network cable.

And sometimes when watching movies on a ps3 the screen goes dark and I have to switch to another source and then back again to get it back.

On the PS3, try setting the "Deep Color Output" to OFF. For the Airplay audio dropouts, try shutting down background applications on your iPhone or iPad, otherwise try a "wired" connection from the Airport Express to the router.

I have had this unit for a few months now. I am now trying to get airplay to work. The unit is not showing up on my home network, itunes, or airply. The unit is connected with ethernet and spotify, pandora, etc. are all functioning. Have performed the most recent firmware update as well. Not sure if this is related, but my IP address on the unit keeps changing. Is that normal? Anyways, any help on getting the home networking features to work would be greatly appreciated. BY THE WAY, I did try to set up using the instructions in the manual, but the first step is to select the receiver in the devices area and is never available or there despite it being turned on....darn it

Hey guys.

Im seriously considering an SR5007. I want to hook up 5.2 system with passive tops and active subs, and i want the assignable amped outputs to power a pair of stax Electrostatics. Would the SR5007 allow this or would it automatically implement the crossover between the subs and tops when listening in 2 ch. stereo mode?

Thanks in advance
Grant

The crossover can be set independently for each speaker pair as well as setting the sub to OFF when using the Front B setting.

Sweet thanks! Also do you know if the subs can be set up so that you get stereo bass rather than double mono bass. Don't want to assume, but guessing almost certainly yes?

Actually no ... except for the former Denon flagship AVP ($7500), AFAIK there are no D&M models that can do stereo sub signals, most certainly not at this mid level model range.
