Hello all! I am new to this site as well as new to the audiophile world. I have a couple questions and am looking for advice from anyone willing to share. The following is what I am working with.


Sherbourn PA 7-350

Marantz  AV7701

Legacy Whispers (no powered Subs)

Legacy Marquis HD Center

Legacy Phantom HD Rear

Polk Audio PSW 650 which is not keeping up at all!


Here are my scenarios/questions


1. I've had the Marantz AV7701 for a couple of months now and have had some issues with the volume decreasing 20-30% for a second and then returning to normal while watching TV. One time I lost volume completely and it did not resume until I paused and unpaused the program that I was watching. None of these issues happened with the previous receiver (early 90's model) so I think it's fair to rule out my Direct TV box/signal.


2. Is it normal that my sub (hooked up to sub pre out) does not work in stereo mode? It works if I am watching something programmed in 5.1 only. The sub worked in Stereo mode on my early 90's model receiver. I have my front speaker setting to "small"

Think your AVR is defective? Check the Owner's manual and do a factory reset 4-5 times if necessary.
