Welcome to the Marantz 2017 receivers thread!
Well it's that time of the year again when Marantz starts to unveil their line up for 2017.
Starting in May and continuing into the fall, new receivers for their slim line series as well as the full height receivers will be announced and become available to purchase.
This is a master thread for the new 2017 Marantz receivers models. Similar to the 2015/2016 Marantz thread owner's (or potential owners) can post their questions in a single master thread.
imagic has made a news post about the 2017 slimline model here: http://www.avsforum.com/marantz-nr16...rs-introduced/
So what are we expecting for 2017?
- New 5 and 7-channel slim line receiver with model number NR1508 and NR1608. The NR1608 can do Dobly Atmos 5.1.2 speaker configuration. The 5-channel slimline receiver (NR1508) does not do object audio.
- Three new full height receivers with model numbers SR5012, SR6012 and SR7012.
- A new 2017 pre/pro called AV7704.
As more details of each model are released, the 1st page of this thread 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 2017 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. SR5012), as there are 6 different models (NR, SR and AV series) that maybe 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 2017 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.
