Thanks...I was searching for the wrong words, so I missed this section.

I returned it, and unfortunately they were out of similar units for exchange. I ended up getting a cheaper Marantz SR5008.
If it wasn't going to end up in a second system, I'd have tried to get it repaired or insisted on a new 4000. I was really impressed with it...when it worked.

I played around with my audessey graphic ex after turning audessey off and copied over the settings. It kicked my high treble up to +6 no idea why as the speakers are very bright to begin with. I turned it way down and now I only start to hear the hiss noise around -0 which is fine as I normally dont listen to anything above it.

I might try running audyssey a few times once I get the subs back in the system. First time I ran it with a sub and no acoustic panels it sounded great. With the addition of the acoustic panels my room is notionally quiet with no echo. Even my wife yesterday noted the room was very quit and the echo when talking or yelling was gone.

X4000 issue

Anyone having an issue when you select the network music options, after showing the screen with Pandora, Spotify, etc. -- the receiver either completely freezes up, or the reciever's arrow and enter buttons stop working (and possibly other buttons) but volume and power buttons work?

Should I try a reset? If yes -- the network reset or the full microprocessor reset?

Thanks!

Hey babe ... at least I am not into motorcycles or boats ... that's real money.

I am trying to decide between the X1100 and X2100. For $200 bucks, other than the inputs/outputs, you also get the video upconversion (I do not have a 4K tv) and more watage to the speakers.

Will I really notice the difference between 80 vs 95 watts?

Is there anything else I may be missing as a reason to go to the X2100?

Re the wattage difference, in theory you shouldn't hear a difference with reasonably sensitive speakers. That said, even with quite sensitive Focal speakers (albeit which drop to a fairly low impedance in some parts of their range, and in a big space), I found the X1000 a bit underpowered, i.e. I was turning the volume pretty close to max and it began to sound congested, and the X2000 seemed to give me the needed headroom and make things sound significantly better. This wasn't a blind test, so take it with a grain of salt, but I was able to do side-by-side comparison and the difference seemed pretty stark to me.

Thank you for the advice. I went with the X2100! Hopefully I dun good.

The first step should ALWAYS be a soft reset by unplugging the AVR for 10 minutes. Then if no joy, you can try either a network reset or microprocessor reset noting that a network reset includes a microprocessor reset.

Just an FYI .. but you're in the wrong thread. You want the 2014 thread linked below ...

Thanks JD -- I did try a soft reset, and in fact the receiver was unplugged overnight -- so I would assume that is a no joy. I will try a full reset.

If I end up returning this unit for another, but I have saved my configuration using the network interface and the save/load feature, when I get the new unit can I just load my saved settings right in? Or are the data files keyed to a particular unit?

BTW -- what is the difference between a network reset and a microprocessor reset?

Thanks!

Not sure. Report back and let us know though if you do exchange it.
