Assign the OPT1 input to the same input used by the HDMI input (eg. Game).

INPUT MODE - "Digital" (p. 157 Owner's manual)

VIDEO MODE - "Game" (p. 151 Owner's manual)

Auto Standby - SR6008

New owner here of the SR6008. I am just absolutely enjoying this AVR. I do have a question if I may... Is it possible to configure the AVR to ignore certain inputs (particularly HDMI), when the Auto Standby feature is enabled?

I have a Roku 3 which when not in use, goes to sleep. It then enters a screen saver mode. It does not have an on/off button. The SR6008 is still sensing video input, which prevents it from turning off automatically..(which it is doing as it supposed to)... I want to omit this HDMI input, so the AVR can shut off...
People in my household tend to fall asleep, leaving the AVR turned on all night..

Thanks!

If the Roku is selected as the source, you would need to either deselect it or you could also use the Sleep Timer if within 2 hours of using the AVR.

Marantz Airplay vs AppleTV - sound quality

Hi,

I'm curious if any of you have found a noticeable difference in sound quality between using Airplay functionality provided in the Marantz vs using an AppleTV plugged into an AVR. The reason I ask is I haven't purchased a new AVR yet and I'm wondering if an Airplay equipped AVR like Marantz would provide better sound for Airplay transmitted tunes than having my AppleTV plugged into an AVR that doesn't come with Airplay.

My understanding is that everything in Airplay is streamed 44/16 but that the AppleTV will convert to 48/16. So IN THEORY, using the AppleTV means you go through an extra conversion as well as additional connectors. I'm just wondering if in reality there is any noticeable difference.

Thanks.

Hi

I have Apple TV and just picked up a 7008 about 6 months ago. I did a test (not very scientific) between playing through the Apple TV and just using the airplay on the 7008. To my ears there was a difference and I'm sure there are people out there who would say its placebo effect but I know what I heard and I preferred airplay right off the marantz.

But then everyone's ears are different.
