What did they charge you?
A week or 2 ago, I got the 6008 for 999, which I thought was a great price..

I have the SR7008. I ran Audyssey. Then, went to set the front Left & Right speakers back to small. Why did Audyssey shut off and I can't get it to go back on?

If you mean HDMI Standby pass through, yup. This is a feature on all 2013 Marantz models to include the SR7008.

The benefit of buying through Best Buy is that you can more quickly exchange/return the unit should there be any issues, although generally you'll pay more than necessary for that experience.

Shut off how? Can you no longer select the settings in the Manual Setup? Try disconnecting the power for 10 minutes.

I can attest to that.

My first 6008 lost its ability to connect to the internet after 4 days, and, I returned it to Best Buy, and they shipped a replacement to my house within 3 days.

1) I do not see myself using multiple zones at this time, nor can I envision a need for more than 2 hdmi outputs...which makes me think that the 7008 may be overkill in those areas.  I am also currently configured in a 5.1 setup, and pretty happy there.  But, that said, I am always a proponent of 'buy as much as you can afford' and find a reason to use it later -- so, money aside, are there other compelling reasons that make an investment in the 7008 a no brainer?

2) I am surprised that none of these receivers provide wi-fi connectivity, but I am new to the search for an upgraded receiver so I am wondering if I should be surprised.  Due to the location of my compoenents, it will be difficult for me to hardwire this to my network.  Do most receivers at these price points now offer wi-fi?  Most of my internet connectivity for streaming is handled by my Oppo BDP-103, and my Roku -- so is not having this unit networked a big deal?  How would I perform firmware updates if not networked?

Any comments are appreciated!  Thanks.

Tom

there's no reason to buy the 7008 if you never use the features.
id get a 6008, use the rest of money on something else that would matter more to you.

Get a Netgear Universal wireless adapter.

Well...just bought the SR7008! Best Buy made me an offer I could not refuse.

I want to thank everyone who participated in my soul searching! Much obliged!

I agree! I think you will be very happy with it. Since you are coming from a receiver very similar to the one I was coming from (I believe the 7002 and 7003 had very similar specs), I will be interested in your subjective impressions of XT-32. Please let us know whether you hear any significant differences.

I went from a 7002 to the 7008.

The sonic abilities of the 7002 without XT32 are pretty amazing. In some ways i still like the sound of the 7002 better. It seemed to have more detail. This is using it as just the processor and using the same external amp on both units. So the amplifer section in each unit is a non issue with me.

That's interesting! I also still like my 7002 very much. In fact, I use it as a pre-amp for my two largest speakers, and then run the other five from the 7008. But I do think that XT-32 gives me better overall blending than I was able to get from the 7002, irrespective of any power differences. I definitely wouldn't say that the 7002 gave me more detail unless perhaps I was comparing just two-channel performance. It's no great surprise though that two different people could have different impressions. Lot's of variables, and then lot's of subjectivity in our impressions. It's probably more remarkable when any two of us think we hear the same things. tongue.gif

The 7002 was a great piece at a great value at the right time. It seems we are now paying not for so much better sonic ability, but for all the features and licensing in these new units. There is so much stuffed into the 7008 that the 7002, didnt have in the same size chassis. Every Dolby, HDMI, THX, Audyseey, etc logo you see is a licensing fee. Yes the 7002 had them too, but i wonder how much more it costs Marantz today with all the advancements. I could be wrong, maybe D&M Holdings combined has worked out good deals and maybe like most electronics, you get more for your money today.

Thanks. I also meant to ask if receiver has a mode when, during normal operation, e.g., movie playback, receiver does nothing with video signal, just pass it through. I have lumagen for video processing, so I do not want AVR to do any video processing, just switch the inputs. Can SR 7008 do it?

Yes, but you have to choose which input will be your pass through.

Mine is set to Blu Ray Pass Through

There is no setting where all inputs are pass through's.

no, the pass through setting is what input gets output by the AVR when it's turned off- you can have the satellite signal pass through the AVR so you can watch it on your connected TV without turning the whole system on.

I'm still trying to figure out my new 7008, but from what I can tell it has very little video processing anyway, I think it basically spits out whatever comes in. You can turn on some noise reduction filters and adjust contrast, color, etc but by default they are all at zero.

Maybe someone who knows more can chime it, but I don't think this thing has fancy high end video processing (Qdeo for example). I'm actually a bit put off at how plain jane the audio and video options are for a $2000k AVR. As far as I can tell the only licensing they use is Audyssey, so I'm not sure where the cost comes in, I'm considering returning mine to Amazon and going with something else.

Indeed, I just read the manual and my understanding is that pass-through mode is refered to selection of source that is passed through when AVR is in standby. I am wondering how to turn off ANY video processing on HDMI sources during normal On operation. Like I said I want lumagen to do all video processing and 7008 to do nothing with video signal just to send selected input to output unchanged.

here's from AVForums review:

"The SR7008 has a decent video capability and it can match its output resolution to the native resolution of your display. The receiver can output at 480p, 576p, 720p, 1080i/p, 1080p/24 and 4K, as well as pass a 3D signal and a native 4K signal. Marantz have also added InstaPrevue, which allows you to use PiPs to check other HDMI inputs. When it came to handling standard and high definition content, the SR7008 delivered an impressive performance, deinterlacing 480i, 576i and 1080i signals and scaling up to 1080p over HDMI. It also passed 1080p/24 and 3D signals from Blu-rays without any problems, as well as 4K at up to 30Hz. We were pleased to see that the SR7008 had no problems detecting both 3:2 and 2:2 cadences, as well as scaling standard definition content without introducing unwanted artefacts or jaggies. As long as you left the picture adjust controls in their default zero or off positions, the Marantz could passthrough the video signal without tampering with the image accuracy."

It seems that 7708 allows to do some basic picture adjust (few pic modes, contract, etc) and also to do some resolution scaling. It also seems (based on manual reading, I do not have it yet), one can turn them off. It just some receivers have "pass-through" or " input direct" modes that bypass any processing without worrying to turn them off in separate areas of menu.

Edit: Posted this before seeing another post above.

This was posted a long time ago. I am confused a bit. SR 7008 specs say it has 11.2 preamp out. Does not it mean that it can be expanded to 11 channels with external amp? Thanks.

Edit: I guess I found it myself, 2 channels out of 11 would be silenced even if I use preamp out

Okay- so I've used the new 7008 about three times to watch a movie. Twice, it's changed inputs on me randomly. I wasn't using the remote, there shouldn't have been any stray IR signals, but it just switched from blu ray to sat tonight on its own. Any ideas?

Damn, your right

Ive been saying my Darbee effect is a little washed since passing the signal through the 7008, even with pass through on, now i know why.

After reading the manual, there is no option for signal pass through

Same here as far as setup flexibility goes. I have an Onkyo 818 too and while it has more options than most will ever use it also has more options that I find usable that I don't have on the 7008. #1 being listening mode presets for any given input signal.

Yes, again with any model that has a video chip to include the SR7008, you can disable the "i/p Scaler" setting which will allow the signal to pass through.

Is the sat box a DVR?

It is a dvr. The first time it switched from sat to network on its own.

Could be an indication of a failing HDMI board. Try resetting the microprocessor (p. 241 OM).

This thing is brand new- replacing an Onkyo that had HDMI board failures x2. If that's the case I'm shipping it back to Amazon.

It's rare on a Marantz, but does happen from time to time.

I have noticed several people mention the issue of upscaling with the new receivers. A review was posted up the page a bit, but I thought I would chime in with my impressions for whatever they may be worth. I am pretty keen on good picture quality. I have a professionally calibrated display, but I don't use Blu-ray, so in the past I used an ABT DVDO, the iscan Duo, to handle my video processing. Now my Duo is several years old, and it is possible that they have replaced the chip in newer Duo models. But my 7008 has an ABT (Anchor Bay Technologies) chip which up-scales better than my Duo did. So, I have taken the Duo out of my video chain. I believe the Marantz has a 3rd generation chip where my Duo had a 2nd generation ABT chip. I have been curious how the newer ABT chips (used in these AV receivers and some Blu-ray players) compare to the Marvel chips found in some other products. But I can definitely confirm that the video processing in my 7008 is better than in my three-year-old Duo bought specifically for that purpose. Frankly, with good source material, and most of the HD I get through DirecTV is pretty good, I think the picture quality is excellent. That is consistent with professional reviews of the 7008. Of course, YMMV.
