You should be able to go much longer than 12'.

Can someone please let me know if the OEM Rack Mount kit for the SR6008 or SR7008 will work on the SR5008/SR5009?
Thank you!

Can't say if it will work, but can say that Marantz has a unique rack mount kit for each model (SR5008 - RMK5007SR; SR6008 - RMK6504S, SR7008 - RMK8003AV).

will give a try tonight.
in addition, currently i only use network, USB and HDMI. Both network and USB are not working. only HDMI is working. not sure if this related to hardware problem.

i refer to manual p. 123, seem like the step is to lock/unlock the remote. not sure if this is the correct step to reset the network.

This is a USA/CA based forum, so all of my Owner's manual references are based on the USA manual. If you are from a different country, your manual will be different, so just look a few pages back and you should find the pages I am referencing.

I have a Marantz 7008 and I am happy overall, except the Airplay is sometimes very choppy streaming from my iPhone or iPad. Often times it starts off fine, but after some time it starts to stop and resume every couple of seconds, making it unlistenable. Has anyone experienced this? I am hoping it is related to my router rather than the receiver itself. Is there any setting in the receiver to lower the airplay streaming quality? Thanks!

the step is exactly same as what you share with me earlier. just the title is for "lock remote control"
by the way, i am from Malaysia.

Sorry, but no ... totally different function. Refer to p. 120 - Dual Backup Memory and p. 118 - Web Control in your Asian Owner's manual.

ok here is the problem, I was using airplay on my 7008 (tidal) when all of a sudden it lost network connection I've tried and unplugged the receiver for about 10m and nothing then changed the cable and nothing re-set the router nada... I m really out of ideas, could somebody please give me the right steps to do a factory re-set... I've looked but cant find it. any ideas?? @@@@ found out how to do a re-set will see if it works

UPDATE:
I'm on my second refurb and a new problem came up.

This one starting going into protect mode randomly. Slow RED led (2 second blink)

It happens without anything connected at all (Just the power cord)

Contact the seller for RMA and refund.

Now I need to find an alternate brand/model. Old receiver was a Harman Kardon from 2008 or so and I love it, but it doesn't have enough HDMI ports for my needs anymore.

My recent new sr 5009 had similar issues within couple of weeks of purchase. I did all efforts to rectify but of no issues. It keep going on and off on its own. Now I am returning it. Not sure what triggers it - speaker wire or power fluctuations?

Hi,

SR7008 owner.
My Panny AE4000E decided to boycot all hdmi input the other day, so it's in the shop for repair now.
In the meantime I'd like to hook up my old crt, so I can at least have something to keep going.

Alas it only has a scart input (yup that old), so I'm trying to get a good old video connection.

The manual describes on p 42 how to do this, but I'm not getting anything into the tv.
Of course I am lacking the OSD, so I can't readily browse the settings to see if I can change anything.

Do I need to enable anything?
I've gone through the setup pages on the front display but didn't see anything.
I did a factory reset, hoping that would help, but it didn't.

Any ideas?
Many thanks,
Wim

Are you using an HDMI or component video converter? If component, the input signal must also be component as there is no HDMI--> component down conversion.
curd's Avatar curd 04:56 AM 01-31-2015
thx for the reply jdsmoothie!

ahhh alas I am not.
All my inputs are hdmi.

I did not realize there's no down conversion...
But should I not at least be able to get the osd?

You should yes ....
curd's Avatar curd 05:17 AM 01-31-2015
Is there anything that would prevent that?

So, just to be clear, and for my correct understanding
If I hook up the video cable from the "Monitor" output into the TV, and open the setup menu on the remote, that should appear on the screen right?

Because, that's not what is happening
jdsmoothie's Avatar jdsmoothie 05:30 AM 01-31-2015

Correct, although SCART converter may be messing with the signal.
curd's Avatar curd 05:51 AM 01-31-2015
hmmm when i use eg a wii u with the video and stereo into said scart converter it works fine.
should i be worried?

I had a problem with my projector not taking any hdmi input... could they have fried each other?
jdsmoothie's Avatar jdsmoothie 07:12 AM 01-31-2015

Ensure the Video Conversion setting is enabled which may resolve the menu issue. Note also that you can access the menu using the Web Control feature if your AVR is connected to your home's modem/router. Simply enter the AVR's URL into a web browser.

I apologize in advance if this is a stupid question, but I just bought this receiver yesterday, and it is much nicer and more advanced than the pioneer elite it is replacing. It is my first time using Audyssey as well. The pioneer didn't allow me to set separate xcovers for the speakers, much less this amount of control over the sub. Audyssey correctly set all my speakers too small, with the the xover around 100. But it set the xover at 120 for my sub, and everything is very "boomy". There is tons of bass with everything, it almost sounds like the sub never turns off. I though I read something about setting the xover for the sub at 80, but I wanted your input to see if this is correct. I have the definitive technology 600 series, with the 1000 series center. Thanks!

Question about the MEDIA LIBRARY.

I have been copying my CDs to a network drive for some time, so I could play them using netowrk media library on SR5008.

However, for some reason, the files are not there the moment I copy them. The folders usually start turning up after a few hours and sometimes even not befor the next day.

Is there an opton to refresh or update the media library when the new files are added? Could this be router or hard drive related?

The LPF for LFE for the sub factory defaults to 120Hz and should be left there to allow the full LFE signal to pass to the sub. If you prefer setting it to 80Hz do so, however, doing so has no impact on the speaker crossover settings. After running Audyssey, most feel the sub is too weak, however, if you prefer to lower the volume, you can do so using the Manual Setup - Test Tone - Subwoofer.

Thanks JD. I will try playing around with the settings.

A couple of other things you could experiment with are Dynamic EQ on or off, and Audyssey versus Audyssey Flat. Dynamic EQ sounds boomy to some people, particularly with music. And Audyssey Flat can also help in some room/system combinations. The Audyssey FAQ, linked below, has some great information which will help you get the most from Audyssey.

Thanks for the information! There is always just so much bass, even during normal dialogue, the sub is constantly going. With my old receiver it would only kick on the sub at certain times. Now with the marantz it is constant.

What volume level is the sub set to in Manual Setup?

It was at +7 but I lowered it to +5, it sounds better now.

bmock17,

Would like to check with you on your current setup. Basic room dimensions including front to back, side to side floor to ceiling lengths in feet.

How far away is the front sound stage from the Main Listening Position (MLP)? Are you flexible in moving around the MLP / sound stage to get the best imaging?

You had previously mentioned that the fronts are Def Tech PM600 with PMC1000 as the center. What about the make and model of your sub? Have you carried out a sub crawl yet to determine a few good locations to place the sub in the room? JDsmoothie has put together a good FAQ in the Denon thread which you'll find useful here: The 'Official' 2014 Denon "S Series" / "X Series" AVR Model Owner's Thread & FAQ. Look for the sub crawl video by Axiom Audio.

Once you have the basic front sound stage to give the best imaging and the sub placed in the right location for smooth bass, re-run Audyssey to correct for the rest of the room and check that the splice between the sub and satellites is smooth.

Wasn't sure which model of the Marantz you had? The SR5008/SR6008 is with a lower end Audyssey XT while the SR7008 has the preferred Audyssey XT32. Audyssey XT32 will do a much better job of correcting the sub bass frequencies.
