The usual suggestion is to recalibrate , turning down the sub's volume control and turning upthe receiver's sub output. Then the signal coming in to the sub increases, so the auto on system detects...

OP, if you need a device with an amp for the sub, you will not find anything in the receiver class that meets your needs. You will need an amp for a passive sub, if that is what you have. ...

What's the source? My phone makes noise from track to track. The speakers make no noise unless there is some input. So you need to find the noise. It is almost certainly somewhere before the...

I'd agree that only reference is reference. So get yourself a room about 40 by 80 feet with 15 to 20 foot ceilings, and run at reference level and you'll hear (assuming you're properly calibrated)...

There is no correct answer. Whatever sounds best to you is right enough. Likely which sounds best will change from movie to movie because the 5.1 mix will differ from movie to movie. Pick...

Plus, most likely, when you take the analog outputs from an outboard DAC, you lose the ability to use the Marantz's crossovers, so no bass management, and your SVS sits unused on that two channel...
