*Official* Marantz 2015 NR-1506/1606, SR-5010/6010/7010 & AV7702mkII owner's thread

Welcome to the Marantz 2015 receivers and pre/pro thread!

Well it's that time of the year again when Marantz starts to unveil their line up for 2015.

Starting this summer and continuing into the fall, new receivers for their slim line series as well as the full height receivers and revised pre/pro will be announced and become available to purchase.

This is a master thread for the new 2015 Marantz receivers and pre/pro models. Owner's (or potential owners) can post their questions in a single master thread rather than the shot gun approach that's happened for the 2014 products.

To kick start things, the cat's been let out of the bag on what we're going to be expecting courtesy of the June 4 article by What HiFi here: http://www.whathifi.com/news/marantz...grades-preamps

So what are we expecting for 2015?

Two new slim line receivers with model numbers NR1506 and NR1606. The higher end NR1606 will have Dobly Atmos in a 5.1.2 speaker configuration.

Three new full height receivers with model numbers SR5010, SR6010 and SR7010. All will now have Atmos and DTS:X in various speaker configurations. The receiver to watch out for is the SR6010 which is going to have Audyssey XT32 and this means that Marantz now has two receivers with top of the line Audyssey XT32 room correction.

The only new pre/pro for 2015 is going to be the AV7702mkII. The previous 2014 flag ship from Marantz is the AV8802 and for 2015, its essentially the same, just renamed as AV8802A with built in HDMI 2.0a / HDCP 2.2 at the factory. The flag ship models are in a two year up-date cycle, while all other models are on a yearly up-date cycle.

As more details of each model are released, the 1st page of this post will be up-dated accordingly.

General notes for posting in this thread.

If this is your first visit to this thread, and you want to ask a question about one of the 2015 Marantz models, either one that you own or one that you are thinking of buying, please provide the following information to allow for better responses to your questions:

(a) Identify the model number in question (eg. SR5010), as there are 6 different models (NR, SR and AV series) discussed in this thread. Also if you have not posted in several days since your initial post, please post the model # again so we don't have to back track to learn which model you are referencing.

(b) Identify what you've done so far to troubleshoot the issue and what the front panel is displaying if an audio issue, (also take a few minutes to review the Troubleshooting section provided in post number 3 of the 2015 Denon thread as the Marantz models are similar in nature and your question may already be answered there),

(c) Unless you indicate what settings have been changed, the assumption will be that all settings are on the factory defaults (ie. usually "Auto"),

(d) If the advice given seems to simplistic or obvious, don't shoot the advice giver as we have no idea of the level of your technical understanding,

(e) If there is no response to your post, it either means no one knows the answer or it has simply been overlooked so please repost if you still haven't resolved your issue,

(f) If you post a question in this thread and are given advice and either it or some other advice (eg. Marantz phone support, Marantz "Ask a Question" email support) resolves your issue, have the common courtesy to post back what solution resolved your issue so others can learn from it as well,

(g) If the issue is not user error or not just a misunderstanding on how the AVR works, please call Marantz support so the issue is registered,

(h) When responding to another post that is providing assistance to you, please press the "Quote" button in the lower right corner of that other poster's response so that response is also listed with your new post to provide some context, and,

(i) If you don't live in either the USA or Canada, please either indicate your country location in your profile or your post as some Marantz models from other regions in the world differ in configuration from their USA/Canada counterparts otherwise responses made will be regarding the USA/Canada models.

Since Marantz and Denon are owned by the same parent holding company, a lot of the features available in the 2015 Denon models are replicated to Marantz models.

jdsmoothie and batpig has started the 2015 Denon thread. Many questions related to features, settings, set-up of the Martanz receivers and pre/pro can be found in the 1st page of the 2015 Denon thread here: The "OFFICIAL" 2015 Denon "S-series" / "X-series" AVR Owner's thread + FAQ (HDCP 2.2).

I'll just refer everyone to the good work that jdsmoothie and batpig have already done.

If you're looking to purchase a Marantz receiver (or any Denon/Marantz gear), AVS is an authorized dealer. Call jdsmoothie on 585-645-1006 for competitive quote.

Firmware up-dates: see post number 11 by jdsmoothie for up-dates to Marantz firmware.

For first time user of Audyssey, AVS member Keith Barnes has written an FAQ and a step by step guide here: "Official" Audyssey thread (FAQ in post #51779)

An in depth technical addendum to explain the differences between Audyssey XT32 and the lower versions is given here: "Official" Audyssey thread (FAQ in post #51779)

The SAVE/LOAD feature for the Marantz receivers is the same as that on the Denon models. jdsmoothie has given the step by step guide to carrying out a configuration SAVE onto the PC and verification of non-zero file using a hex editor in post number 4 of the 2015 Denon thread using IE. Chrome/Firefox browser SAVE/LOAD is given in post number 2,775 in the 2013 Denon thread.

Firmware Update Information for the 2015 Marantz NR/SR/AV models


(1) Firmware updates for all 2015 models should be available via Marantz's website and can be downloaded and installed via USB thumb drive. You will need to enter the serial number of the AVR at the website page to obtain the update.

(2) Firmware updates can also be installed by the owner via an internet connection to the Marantz servers. Although it's not necessary to update your unit if you are not experiencing any problems, it's generally a good idea to keep it updated so that if there are any problems with the update the unit will still be covered under warranty. The update process generally doesn't take more than 30 minutes once the download begins and also generally does not erase any settings, although it's always a good idea to SAVE the settings config.dat file using the Web Control feature prior to doing the update just in case. Note that if the update process is stuck on "Authenticating", ensure a source other than NET/USB is selected and just let it continue for up to a few hours and it should eventually begin the update process (although note that Marantz's servers have been known to crash the first day of release due to the overload, so you may want to wait a few days before trying again). Some have noted that rather than selecting the "Check for Update", instead simply selecting the "Start Update" will avoid the "Authenticating" issue. One prior model year owner found that disconnecting ALL sources to the AVR enabled the unit to connect to the Marantz servers and update the firmware when the update process had previously been unsuccessful.

Other tips if having problems with the update include setting "Network Standby/IP Control/Network" to OFF, cycling the DHCP setting on the AVR, or using a static IP address.

During the update, the AVR will go into Standby mode, but will continue to update status on the front panel display. If the update seems to be hung up (ie. goes beyond 1 hour) ... power the AVR to Standby, unplug it for a few minutes and power back on and attempt the update again. If the update fails to load, check the network environment (ie. reset the router, replace the router with a more current/robust model, or ideally wire directly to the router if connecting wirelessly) If still not having any luck with the update, perform a Network Reset. You may also want to consider purchasing a long (100'+) Cat5/6 cable for network updates only for a higher probability of a successful install. Also note, that once the update has completed, there is no way of returning to an earlier version of firmware.

Networking model owners will be notified automatically when there is a firmware update when the AVR is turned ON as long as the Notification Update setting is set to ON (factory default). For more information refer to Setup - General - Firmware - Notifications -Update in your respective Owner's manual. To manually check for an update, refer to Setup - General - Firmware - Update - Check for Update.

(3) What is my unit's current firmware version? The current firmware version can be determined from the AVR's menu: Setup --> General --> Information --> Firmware Version.

(4) There are two firmware notification settings, both of which default to "ON" from the factory..... "Update" (fixes) and "Upgrade" (new feature). When either an "update" or "upgrade" is available the networking models will display a message alerting you to this "update" or "upgrade" every time you turn on the AVR. If you prefer not to install the update/upgrade, then simply change the appropriate setting at General --> Firmware --> Notifications ---> Update/Upgrade to OFF (factory default is ON) and it will go away.

Auro 3D/2D + Auro-Matic (simulates audio to height speakers from non-Auro BD/DVD) Upgrade instructions (USA models only)

Only the SR7010 and AV7702MKII can be upgraded to Auro 3D/2D by following the instructions listed below:

1. Connect the unit to the internet.
2. Ensure the unit has the latest firmware update installed.
3. Using the GUI, select Upgrade now or go to GENERAL -- FIRMWARE -- ADD NEW FEATURE and write down the "Upgrade ID" listed on the display
4. Go to the Upgrade website at https://www.upgrade.marantz.com/na/m...ages/home.aspx
5. Complete the Auro 3D upgrade Personal form to include personal information, the unit's serial number (listed on back of unit or on original box), and the Upgrade ID obtained in step 3.
6. Enter credit card information - cost is $199 USD which will also include the Auro 3D Demo disk.
7. Once the card has been processed, the Auro 3D upgrade will be available to download to the unit (estimated download time - will vary depending on internet connection)


Notes:
(1) For those SR7010 and AV7702MKII owners not wanting to upgrade to Auro 3D at this time, you will be given the option to set Upgrade Notification to OFF on initial setup or you can go to SETUP -- GENERAL -- FIRMWARE -- NOTIFICATIONS -- UPGRADE and select OFF so you don't get the Upgrade notification each time the unit is powered ON. Note the "Upgrade" notification only applies to new features, while the "Update" notification applies to "fixes" which you want to leave set to ON.

(2) A number of 2014 Atmos model owners with the Auro 3D upgrade have noted they prefer the Dolby Surround upmixer (DSU) for movies and Auro-Matic for music.

(3) Additional information on Auro 3D/2D can be found in the Official Auro 3D thread.

The SR7010 uses only three DSP chips, but they are quad core. I suspect this applies to the other new Marantz and Denon units.

As a side question, do we even need a separate Marantz thread from the master Denon one at this point? Other than amp changes in the AV/NR models, some input/output port tweaks, and chassis cosmetics, are there any differences at all at this point between D&M?

Certainly something to think about for when the new-for-2016 thread rolls around next year...

^ Most people would like to ask questions related to specific brand and the model numbers available for that year.

Even though both brands (Denon and Marantz) are owned by the same parent company, there is enough differentiation in physical size, physical appearance, physical connections, internal components, features and house sound between the two to make people pause and have a think on which brand and which model to get.

Extending your logic, it would apply to similar receivers from other manufacturers such as Onkyo, Pioneer, Yamaha, Anthem, Emotiva, etc. as they all do the same thing as the Denon and Marantz models. I.e. a master thread for all receivers in the same year.

One has to keep in mind that a single master thread will eventually have a significant number of topics of discussion and one can get easily lost in the sea of posts by many. Some poster's question may not get answered by those who are willing to help out.

A balance needs to be achieved.

You raise a good point as likely 90% of the questions asked for each brand will result in the same answer for both; however, better to split them up by brand so as not to have too many models in one thread.

For one, these "owner" threads tend to get very big, and that makes it hard to find info and help, and some folks get annoyed when a question is repeated, two threads will mean halve the size and possibly half the tension...

Secondly, more than one person gets that "coveted" Thread Starter label

Anyway, I think the new 7010 will be very interesting, and if the price is near the 7009, it will be a good alternative to the more expensive Denon 7200. I wonder if they will use the same AKM DACs in the 7010 as the 7200.

I recall SteveH saying that the 7009 was brighter in tone than the traditional Marantz amp. Hope they go back to their more familar sonic signature in this range.

As for the components in the 7010, I am assuming the rest of the architecture will be fairly similar to the 7009 / 7008?
I.e. a Denon 4100 on steroids, sans monoblock construct, weaker caps than the 7200 / 5200, but with 32 bit DACs from AKM (ala 7200), DTS X, HDCP 2.2 and of course HDAM?

I rather they charge a tad more, give us better caps, made in Japan and I will be snapping this baby up... I am partial to Marantz, even though my last few amps were from Denon, simply because when the Marantz ones came out, they either didn't have XT 32, or weren't upgradable to HDCP 2.2.

This SR 7010 might be the first with all the boxed checked..... make it a rival for the 7200 or at least, base it on the 5200 / 6200 instead of the 4100!

It's not uncommon for the European websites to publish incorrect information which is why it's best to wait for the D+M USA release.

I wonder if the new NR-1506 will include HDCP 2.2 There's no mention of that in the limited announcement. They also mention HDMI 2.0 for the NR-1606, but that detail is not listed for NR-1506.

All HDMI inputs on the NR1506 are HDCP 2.2.

Owner's manual for the entry level slimline receiver model NR-1506 is now available on Marantz's USA website here: http://manuals.marantz.com/NR1506/NA/EN/

jdsmoothie is correct in that even the entry level receiver has HDCP 2.2! Don't know which inputs support HDCP 2.2 yet, the manual isn't very clear.

D+M AVRs have the HDMI inputs marked as HDCP 2.2 if only a limited number are such. As there are none marked on the SR1506, that means that "all" HDMI inputs on "all" 2015 AVRs will be HDCP 2.2.

Yeah, as much as I want it to be more similar to the 5200, I suspect it won't be too different from the 7009. Wish it had a toroidal, like the old 8002.
As for the " retuned " sound, I wonder if it was because people found the 7009 too 'unmarantz' and wanted a more familiar warmer sonic signature. But if it uses a new 32/192 dac set, it may indeed have yet another kind of sound, perhaps closer to the 8802?

I thinking of buying the Marantz SR7010 or the Yamaha A3050,both these two AVR require a separate AMP for 7.1.4 setup.
I wondering if i can use my old JVC RX-6000V to power the extra 2 speakers.

JVC RX-6000V Details:

Dolby Digital/DTS inputs (1 optical, 1 coaxial)
100 watts x 2 (stereo) into 8 ohms (40-20,000 Hz) at 0.8% THD — or 100 x 5 in Surround mode (Dolby Digital, DTS, Pro Logic)
3 audio and 3 A/V (including 1 S-video) inputs
preamp-level subwoofer output
A/V remote
Enhanced JVC CompuLink
30 FM/15 AM presets
17-3/16"W x 5-13/16"H x 16-15/16"D

Back Panel

OLD SETUP:http://www.avsforum.com/forum/15-gen...r-theater.html
NEW SETUP: http://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?...856#pid2506856
LG 75UH8500 3D DOLBY VISION HDR | SONY 43 ANDROID TV HDR

I reckon it will work fine: You should be able to set up the JVC amp to use the 'CD' input on the back panel. Set that input to stereo on the JVC and connect the pre outs of the SR7010 to this input for the two channels that require external amplification. Then connect the left/right speaker outputs of the JVC to the ceiling speakers (or surround backs) that you need the extra power amp for. Also you'll probably have to set the JVC volume control to at least mid way (and then set SPL levels in the 7010).

Assuming you will be using it for the ceiling speakers, then it won't matter than the JVC isn't as powerful as the Marantz (though the Marantz wattage will fall when all channels are driven anyway).

I quite fancy getting the 7010 myself, though I'll be using it mostly as a pre-pro as I have a good 7 channel Arcam power amp, so I'll be able to use the 7010's internal amps for the ceiling speakers and the Arcam for the 'bed layer' speakers.

I was looking at the 7010 - but the 7200 (non A) here in UK only about 140 dollars more than the expected price of the 7010

yes the 7010 will drop in price -but will take a good 4+ months or so

I'm guessing a 7200 is a better bet ?
