Does Marantz release new models every year? If so when would the 2014 models be expected? I'm looking at the 6008 but if the new models were coming soon I would wait to see what new features and capabilities they had before buying.

My question is what new features are they likely to have? For me I am sure if there is going to be anything I care about. I am interested in NR series with has a different refresh timing than the SR series. Last year the SR series updates were announced in June

Marantz M-CR610 auto wakeup on input signal

Hi there,

planing to buy this product but not sure if the following is supported:

Is the Marantz M-CR610 able to auto detect any input signal (optical digital or analog) and auto wake up from stand by, when an external unit is connected to it and the external unit is turned on.

Use case: turning a TV on (which is connected to this unit for sound), whoud be nice not to have to explicitley use the Marantz M-CR610 remote to turn on this sound system every time.

If this is not supported:
-are there/will there be any firmware updates which would address this use case?
-are there any devices on the market which would be able to compensate for this, say a device attached on the cable (between the TV and this unit, which would sense the presence of a signal from TV) which would send a turn on signal to M-CR610)

Thanks,
Radu

Please note, this will take some time to get answers but they are being worked on.<br><br>

Please only post questions regarding specific issues with Marantz receivers. Please refrain from bashing or askinjg about future products as I've been told it's not Marantz's poplicy to comment on unreleased products.<br><br>
These posts will be sent by me to Kevin directly and their engineers and managers will attempt to solve them and educate all of us. Kevin and members of Marantz have also volunteered for a live Q &amp; A Session in the near future.<br><br>

Hi
I have a Marantz SR5008. The standby indicator light, which was red, is now green?

What does a green standby indicator light mean?

thanks

Flasher In SR4002

I've got an older Marantz receiver an SR4002. I'm attempting to find an IR extender that will work properly with this unit. I've tried a set-up like this: IR Extender without success.

I tested the receiver/flasher with all of my other components and it worked with everything except the Marantz. Is there something else I should try? I am hoping that one of the inexpensive IR receivers that terminates in a 3.5mm plug will work by connecting it to the Flasher In port on the back of the SR4002. However, I'm looking for verification prior to ordering something else.

Thanks!

Plse need help with SR7200

Hello all, first I'm sorry if I dont post at the right place, I am new to this and never have been on a forum.
I hope someone can help me.
I just bought my second Marantz which is an SR7200 (used of course).
I have tried everything I think I could but cant get BASS from the sound.
With my older 2270, the bass was more than enough and even at low sound level.
I currently use it in stereo mode with a pair of JBL CF-120 which are connected to the front L and R output.
All spk outputs are configured for large.
I would really appreciate help, thanks
Dan

Unfortunately I can't answer your qestion as to whether an IR extender will work on the flasher in port. The Marantz manual implies that it's designed for a keypad not and IR receiver.

Assuming that your Marantz remote control works fine with the AVR, it seems like you have one of three problems:

1. The IR extender is not positioned in the proper location on the receiver. See the manual for where it's supposed to be placed. You can often verify the location by shining a flash light on the plastic faceplate and looking for the receiver.
2. The IR extender signal is too strong. You can confirm this by pulling the extender away from the receiver and seeing if it magically starts working.
3. The IR extender signal is too weak. I am not sure how one would verify this other than eliminating 1 and 2. If this is problem you are hosed.

The good news is that a IR extender from Monoprice will set you back all of $3 plus shipping. Definitely worth a try IMHO.

Your speakers could be wired out of phase with each other. If there is one, turn the balance control all the way to the left and then all the way to the right. If in doing so the bass improves you have one speaker wired out of phase with the other one. If left red and right red on the receiver is wired to left red and black red on the speakers than the internal wiring is screwed up on one of the speakers.

Otherwise your receiver is misconfigured or something is wrong in your setup. You can try temporarily using a 5.0 setting and see if anything changes.
