JD I did do that. It allows me to get the unit back operational but back to the factory settings.

I do a quick set up test the network and try to update again with no luck. It does the exact same thing described above.

Is there another way to administer the update? As in download it to a laptop and install through a usb flash drive. I believe this would be my second update. I did one when I first got the unit early last year.

Thanks for the help

It's a personal call of course, but if the additional cost is in your budget, then the SR7008.

I have a problem wire the Remote to the sr7008. It will not react when i try and change input channel etc. It shows a small line in the top right corner in the display on the remote. I have not had this problem before. Any ideas?

Thanks

Yup. It means you have Zone 2 turned ON and selected on the remote. Turn Zone 2 OFF.

TobyR,

Have a read of Keith Barnes article on the difference between Audyssey XT and XT32 here: "Official" Audyssey thread (FAQ in post #51779). FYI, that write-up was enough to convince me to step up to XT32 and not go with a inferior REQ.

Better audyseey = better sound, plus your resale value will be better with the 7008.that said I settled on the 7008 vs the 7009 because I don't value Dolby Atmos or care about wifi for the xtra money. I mean your already spending over 1k I assume anyways, whats another 150$ for a better product

In addition to Dolby Atmos and Auro 3D and built-in Wifi/Bluetooth, the SR7009 also features Smart Select buttons (aka Quick Select on Denon AVRs) which are custom settings for up to 4 sources in each zone. It also features custom 2CH stereo settings (LARGE/SMALL, volume, crossover, subwoofer (Y/N)) formerly only on the Denon AVRs as well.

Ok 3 routers later no luck.

Here is something I notice. If I cycle the power on the unit now and test the internet connect I get no router access. I unplug and plug in the Ethernet cable only and retest I'm back in business. But yet still as its authenticating the update after a minute or 2 it shuts the unit off and then tries to reinstate the update resulting in no connection 0e.

I'm now plugged directly into my comcast xfinity cable modem.

Hi,

Just setup my new 7008, extremely pleased, obvious improvement over my Onkyo 805.

I'm a bit confused regarding the setup with my HTPC though, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I configured the setup in Windows 8.1 to 5.1 with small speakers all around (got Totem Rainmakers) as well as 24bits 192 kHz playback.

I can get bitstream no problem for DD DTS HD + etc.. However, I just played back some regular mp3 (stereo) and the display constantly shows up as PCM multichannel 5.1 and in fact, my surrounds were working (loud at that!) and so was the center. Pressing the sound mode button didn't do anything, no cycling through

If the display reads MULT CH IN, then your HTPC is indeed passing a 5.1 PCM signal.

hmm so in this case it's VLC creating the additionnal streams ? After all the original source was strictly stereo and when I listen to lets say, a youtube video, it does come out only in 2.1 (even though the receiver displays Multi Ch in).

I wonder why it does that.

Some TV stations do something similar .... broadcast a stereo 2.0 signal over a DD 5.1 audio track.

Outstanding referral. Thanks! It does appear significantly divergent.

Meh, that's just semantics, I only use it in one room with 3 speakers up front , not the 9 up front for Auro. I could of got the 7009 and intended on it, didn't care about the money. The only thing I don;t like is the remote is cheap. First one the scroll up button got stuck within a week, now this one squeaks sometimes. I would also appreciate a little colour/quick buttons. I had a 5006 Marantz a few years ago and actually preferred that remote much more. Is it possible to purchase another models remote for the 7008. I don;t like this one that much

The CBC in Canada does this. I noticed during hockey games, the center speaker is silent but they are saying it's dolby digital during hockey night in Canada.

Only do this if you are prepared to lose ALL of the settings in the AVR. It is not just a Network card reset but a complete system reset. Make sure you back up the system using the procedure in the manual before resetting the system.

I have a question about bi-amping. For the two months I have had my receiver, when I originally set it up I spoke with Marantz themselves on the phone to make sure I had the proper set ups for bi-amping. i was told to hook up one set of wires from my fronts to the front left and right and the other two to SURROUND BACK to bi-amp which is along the same row. I was just looking through the manual now and bi-amp shows that instead the second set of wires should go on FRONT WIDE that are above the front height on the marantz 7008 under "assignable". Did they inform me incorrectly and should I switch this immediately?. I have a 5.1 set up with a svs subwoofer and all speakers set at 80hz and a lfe of 120 hz.




Update, I switched the front lefts to what the manual says for bi-amp connecting to the front wide and ran the level noise and it was very tinny and quiet so I guess the manual is for 7.1 biamp. Not sure, I'll leave as it was. Any ideas?

7008 owners, what Audyssey settings do you find most preferable for movies? I believe Audyssey Flat is for music, correct? Any feedback is appreciated.

With only a 5.1 setup, either connection is acceptable, rather just depends on which AMP ASSIGN setting you use:

7.1 (Bi-amp) = Front Wide posts used

5.1 (Bi-amp) + Zone 2 = Surround Back posts used

I have a quick question about Marantz audio...With all of the reviews I've seen lately about the Marantz audio being better than the Denon because of better internal parts (HDAM) or whatever. Coming from a Denon X4000 listening to flac files on my pc via ethernet cable would I be able to hear any difference in sound quality between the 4000 and the 7008? I have been using my receiver for mainly audio as of late.

Perhaps better with 2CH analog audio, otherwise pretty much the same would be expected.

I tried it 3 days ago, been using ever since. Hard to tell why I like it but it seems like it just sounds a tad clearer.
