I've had this receiver for a little over a year now and it's been great. I've been using the 7.1 ch inputs for the sound on my Bluray player. However, within the past couple of weeks, the volume on the outputs has dropped significantly. I used to watch movies on the volume level 60, and now to get the same output, I'm turning it up to 73ish.
I'm wondering if anyone here has had this happen, or knows what the issue is.
Also, now I'm being paranoid and trying every other device and input, and I've noticed the phono input seems a little low, especially compared to the cd input.. However, it's been a while since I listened to vinyl and can't remember if that should be the case or not.
Hi - Wondering if anyone can help me with my SR6007 hook up.
Bought a Rotel 1582 power amp to help power a pair of B&W CM9s and have it hooked up to my SR6007, which will be my pre-amp. I have the Rotel hooked up via the FL/FR preouts, and the CM9s hooked up direct to the Rotel. I can't get the Marantz to push a signal, nor does it detect the Front speakers (manual or audessey modes). Tried Zone 2 preouts w no luck too. Any idea how I get the Marantz to push a signal to the rotel?
Appreciate any help
If it works with a shorter HDMI cable, he'll want to consider upgrading to a Monoprice Redmere cable or adding an HDMI extender, both available from forum sponsor Monoprice.
Just a quick update, Marantz's customer service was great. They accepted the return and will be sending me another unit, they were out of the 6007 so they will be sending a 6008. I would have greatly preferred that my 6007 functioned correctly and I wouldn't have to be dealing with any of this, however getting a 6008 definitely helps make it bearable.
In addition to picking up a new Zone 2 HDMI monitor output on the SR6008, it also features HDMI/optical/digital coax PCM 2.0 to an independent Zone 2 source as well. See you in the 6008 thread.
I just set up my XPA-5 and using my 6007 as a pre/pro. The difference at low volume is nothing. But at high volume, it is significant. "Sympathy for the Devil" by the stones really woke up and I am so happy with the sound. Id' recommend it!
On a long enough time line the survival rate for everyone drops to zero

I'd also like to know where I can find this information. So that I can easily find out whats new in future updates as they become available.
This is a special update to resolve an issue with Netflix DD+ audio. D&M does not publish this information; however, highly unlikely there will be any further updates for this now 2 year old model. I will post the information in this thread when able. In the meantime, you can review the changelog for the Denon sister model 2313CI.
It applies to Zone 2 period ... doesn't matter if using the speaker posts or pre-outs. Also on board sources (eg. network, Pandora, Internet radio, Tuner, etc.) and USB will also pass to Zone 2.
I actually have a SR6004 but I'm assuming that it is the same for either. I figured I would get a quicker response on this thread. I have an OPPO BDP-83 which will send an LPCM signal through the digital coax and optical connection. Would this work? I read in another place that you said it had something to do with the AV not being able to convert to PCM for Zone 2 (zone A in my case) so would this get around that issue?
I already have my OPPO connected using 7.1 analog (HDMI direct to TV) so I might not have any digital connection between the two because most stereo listening would be done in the other room with 2 speakers and a sub.(using high-level speaker outputs).
I would like to utilize a separate amplifier for the front left/ front right from my SR6007. When I attached the amp to the FR/FL preouts on the receiver.... they played just fine through those speakers and the sub, but nothing through the other speakers connected to the receiver Ctn/SR/SL/SRR/SRRL...I tried all other settings but nothing changed.. I found a reference in the manual to "speaker B" but no explanation of what it is or does..... was wondering if anyone else has done this, and how? I was planning on adding an amp for the center channel too....
Thanks for your assistance.
Moving from the speaker posts to the pre-outs should not have caused a problem with the other speaker configuration. Run Audyssey again which is required to account for the different gain structure of the external amp.
