New Onkyo TX-NR5008 & TX-NR3008 - Page 271

post #8101 of 8633
I have a new Pre/pro and while I'm looking for a power amp to go with it I want to use my TX-NR5008 as one. It doesn't have amp inputs so I'm using the 7.1 multichannel inputs to drive the unit. I have one question, and one problem.

Problem: During hookup I disconnected everything and then reconnected just the speaker cables and 7.1 inputs to the Onkyo. After doing that the 5008 acts as if I have no rear speakers (it previously drove my 7.1 system). I've gone through all the setup options and can't find a way to tell it I still have 7 speakers - other than the option to switch between zone 2 or 3 and rear (I have rear chosen). The rears are grayed out and i cant select them. Any ideas what I missed, or why the rears went away before I changed anything?

Question: What options should I "de-configure" to make this act as much like a vanilla power amp as possible? I've turned off Oddessy/EQ, set the distances to .5 (they won't go to 0), cleared all the input assignments, and set multichannel to Aux. Is there anything else that might be "coloring the configuration?

Thanks for your thoughts

OK, follow up on my "5008 as a power amp"post above. Solved the rear speaker problem with an unplug shutdown, something just got stuck but I could turn them on after the restart. So 'problem' resolved.

Getting the multichannel input configured and turned on was a bit of a pain, after assigning multichannel to an input seems you can only select it in the home menu which isn't too intuitive (and poorly documented), it didn't seem to like using Aux either so I used BD/DVD.

I've done the following to make it just an amp: set all distance to .5, set all levels to 0, turn off Audyssey EQ, deconfigured the inputs, set all speakers to large, set power on and max levels to 0. Probably should have started with factory defaults but by the time I thought of it everything was working.

I presume you are using Pure Audio mode?

Good thought, didn't think of it as an option with the multichannel input. I'll give it a shot.

Pure audio was a perfect suggestion for my situation, shutting down the video circuits and display. Looks like its saving me about a tenth of an amp too! (even with the blue 'beacon' on) I'm sure the money I'm saving will pay for my new power amp ;~)

Seriously, good idea - thanks mjf

Just got my repaired 3008 back. Other than the ludicrous amounts of styro peanuts they used, the return packaging was fine and sturdy.

So i got to unplugging my old 605 and plugging everything back in to the 3008. Turned everything on, set the sources and everything works (one strange thing is that the startup splash screen now says Integra instead of Onkyo; whatever...). The source change clicks are still there but much softer now and the clicks during black scenes in movies and loading screens during gaming are not present. It even seems to run cooler over the HDMI board. Great, so far, so good.

Here's the kicker. When I plugged the Audyssey mic in to run XT32, I knew there was a problem that when it told me to turn the sub up to 75db, it only detected up to 29db (no matter how high I upped the sub's volume). So i set the mic at the center position, push Enter, and let the 3008 do its thing. It played my front left channel three time consecutively, each time with increasing volume. XT32 then quit out and gave me the "Error speaker not detected" screen. So I did a factory reset, double checked the wires, the polarity, and the firmware (I had to update this which went successfully). Still nothing. I even tried the mic that came with my old 605. Still nothing, not detecting the sub's volume nor the loud sounds emanating from my left front channel.

I'm open to suggestions. I really hope that I don't have to lug that thing back to the post office.

Well, first off I am suspicious that your splash screen says Integra instead of Onkyo... Could they have loaded the wrong firmware? Or replaced a board which contains a version of firmware meant for another model? Which could also explain the Audyssey not working.... Otherwise the internal connection for your mic has been knocked loose in the repair. Who serviced it? Unfortunately, it sounds like it will have to go back... And with such a major screwup like this, I would demand some sort of credit or something for this hassle.

There is no way that an Onkyo should be displaying an Integra splash screen so that is immediately suspicious. I've replied to the Audyssey part of your question in the Audyssey thread.

I'm fairly sure (but not 100% without researching it) that the Onkyo and Integra firmwares are the same, judging by the updates. The OP says he reloaded new firmware, presumably Onkyo firmware, so that ought to eliminate f/w issues, assuming the update went properly. I agree it is suspicious that it is is showing an Integra splash screen though...

My reply to you from the Audyssey thread:

Thanks for the reply. You are correct, the 605 mic is the flat hockey puck type while the 3008 is the tall tower type. At a whim, I decided to try again this morning:

-all speakers are connected correctly (wires are secure, stripe negative, no stripe positive, all banana plugs)

-I have a 7.2 configuration (1 center, 2 fronts, 2 wides, 2 surrounds, 2 subs; all B&W except for the subs)

-Audyssey tower mic used and securely inserted into the setup mic plug

This time, Audyssey ran through all five of my front soundstage but then it stopped after that and the "Error Speaker Not Detected" screen indicated that it detected none of my five front speakers (even though it went through the progression). I guess my only solution is to go to my local big box store with the tower mic and see if it works on the display Onkyos.

Terrific. Again, I hope I don't have to pack it away and send it back.
post #8112 of 8633
I just got back from the blue shirt big box store. I connected the Audyssey mic to a Denon 1612 and it detected all five speakers at the first listening position perfectly (I know because it then asked to be placed at the second position). Awesome, I'm going to have send the Onkyo 3008 back for repair... again. Let this serve as a lesson for anyone else who gets a 3008/5008 back for repair, run XT32 first to see if it works.

On a side note, I both both Batman movies in steelbooks on BD for $9.99 each. What a bargain especially considering both come with UV digital copy (ugh) but also each have a voucher for $5 off Dark Knight Rises.
post #8113 of 8633
Just talked to the folks repairing my 3008. They are Adams Electronics in Huntington Beach CA and so far they have been great. Anyway, they received it on July 9 and have ordered 4 new boards for the thing and are awaiting for 3 of them. This should be interesting when I get it back.

The problem started a few weeks ago. I was in a rush to leave and was trying to turn off all the equipment (leaving town for a few days) and hit several buttons before hitting the right ones to turn the equipment off. Just thought I'd mention that as I was wondering if it might have to do with some setting I might have inadvertently changed. When I got back and turned the system on, I discovered that there was no sound. The front panel of the 5008 that usually shows the speakers connected doesn't show this when the problem occurs. It just shows the small 'A' in a small box (Speakers A, IIRC), and Audyssey, Dyn EQ. It will also show 'Stereo' for Stereo audio sources.
My equipment chain is Motorola Cable box and Oppo BDP-93 to the 5008 via HDMI, and the 5008 to the Sony NX810 via HDMI. The 5008 and NX810 have the HDMI link/RIHD turned on, so to turn on the equipment, all I have to do is turn on the TV (which automatically turns on the 5008 after a few seconds) then turn on the Zone 2 trigger for the external amps. I turn on the cable box or BD player separately. To turn the equipment Off, I turn the trigger for the amps off first, then hit the Power button on the TV remote (and turn the cable and/or BDP off separately).
Aside from the speakers connected not being displayed on the front panel, I also notice that going into the 5008 'Setup' menu, that I cannot get any sound from the 'Check Levels' menu in the 'Speaker Configuration' menu. In addition, when the problem occurs, in the 'Setup' menu, option '8. Remote Controller Setup' is grayed out, and under option '7. Hardware Setup', options '6. Network' and option '7. Firmware Update' are also grayed out.
When the problem occurs, I've been able to get sound out of the avr by either toggling the HDMI Control (RIHD) Off and power cycling the avr, or by unplugging the avr for a few seconds. Toggling the RIHD Off doesn't always seem to work. When sound comes back, so does the display of all the speakers connected on the front panel. The grayed out options in the 'Setup' menu also become selectable once again, and everything sounds great as always.
It doesn't appear to be similar to the typical cycling through listening modes problem that other folks have had. I'm thinking it might just be an option of some kind that I might have inadvertently triggered when hitting the wrong buttons on the remotes, but I've tried looking at EVERY option I can think of and I can't find anything that appears to be improperly set. I might be overlooking something obvious though.
Ever since the first time, the problem has been occurring EVERY time I turn the system On after it has been in standby for a little while. It occurs whether the avr is set to the Cable or Oppo BDP inputs (the only 2 active inputs as I haven't had the PS3 connected in a long time).
Any ideas?
Max


I know I am replying to an old post, but I didn’t see a fix for your problem. I wanted to say, I had the same issue around the time you did, but I toggled the Zones and the audio returned.

Just a quick update, I boxed up and send back the 3008 but this time to Onkyo directly and not the authorized repair shop (since they're responsible for not only making the original clicking problem worse but also replacing the circuit board with the wrong part and Audyssey no longer working).

I asked the guy to send a refurb instead of waiting two more months on a repair. I'll reply with the eventual outcome.
post #8116 of 8633
Just came here from the 5007 thread, the last several pages of which are dominated by the No Sound issue which is fixed via replacement of the HDMI board.

Developed the problem in my 5008, purchased new Nov 2010. Sent it to auth service place in CT. They are waiting for the HDMI board to come in. Apparently it's on back order. I may start barking at Onkyo directly for a replacement/refurb unit rather than be without my amp for two months (which is what some in the 5007 thread experienced).
post #8117 of 8633
Had my 3008 back for about a week. Everything seems to work. As I said before they replaced 4 boards plus a couple of wires.
post #8118 of 8633
Got my 5008 back with replaced hdmi board. Restored my settings (thank god for the memory bank...) and all seems to be working.
post #8119 of 8633
Although I'm from the UK I've got the exact same problem with my 5008, also purchased in Nov 2010. It's with the authorised repair centre here and they've had it for just over 2 weeks so I emailed them today about progress. They've replied that they are awaiting an HDMI board with no ETA and told me wait another 2 weeks. I'm prepared to be reasonably patient but if at the end of a month they still don't have an ETA for the board then my patience will be running low. As this appears to be a common problem I can't figure out why the boards aren't readily available for those who need the repair; this was, after all, a flagship model.

Are owners in the US just waiting around for new boards or are Onkyo over there doing something else?

I am in the US and sent mine in for the repair 2 weeks ago and the repair center here is also waiting for this board. You would think that Onkyo would have these boards in a descent supply given that this is a know porblem.mad.gif

Where can I find detailed information about 'Pure Audio' function with the Onkyo 5008?

I’m interested in knowing a few things.

Does it use the burr-brown?
Does it use audyessy?
Does it use the DAC from the Onkyo?
If I want to use ‘Pure Audio’, should I buy an external DAC(maybe Oppo 95)
Why do I have to turn the volume up, if I am using my PS3?
Why do analog input sound so much better then digital with ‘Pure Audio’

I hate that I have to use two different settings for movies and music. Going into the Onkyo to change the x-overs, adjust the bass/treble, turn on/off the sub is starting to really bother me.

I love my movie settings, and I love my 2channel settings, it’s just that darn going back and forth.

Pure Audio is the same as 'Direct' except that with Pure Audio the AV processing is all turned off and the display is turned off on the AVR - the idea is to avoid any interference between the video and audio circuits. I'd be amazed if anyone can hear any difference between Pure and Direct.

 

Quote:

Audyssey is disabled when using Direct mode. The DACs in the AVR are used if you input a digital signal (eg via HMDI). If you input an analogue signal, then the DACs are not used because there is no digital to analogue conversion required in the AVR in an analogue-in, analogue-out configuration. (The DAC will have been performed elsewhere, eg in the source).

 

Quote:

It is very unlikely IMO that you will hear a difference in DACs, once you reach the quality level of the Burr Brown DAC used in the 5008. Again, you will only benefit if you input a digital signal via HDMI. If you wanted to do the DAC externally then an Oppo 93/5 would be a good choice, or you could buy a standalone DAC (Emotiva have a well-reviewed on that is on Sale at the moment).

 

Quote:
Why do I have to turn the volume up, if I am using my PS3?

 

Because, in all likelihood, the output voltage of the PS3 is lower than your other source(s). Use Intellivolume to turn up the level on the PS3 so that it matches the other sources and you will no longer need to turn up the volume.

 

Quote:
Why do analog input sound so much better then digital with ‘Pure Audio’

 

Some say they do, some say they don't. It seems to be a preference thing. Personally, I prefer to use HDMI for everything because any small difference in sound quality between digital and analogue will be entirely negated, IMO, by losing Audyssey room correction when you switch to an analogue input. Even if there is a difference in SQ between analogue and digital, it will entirely disappear if you have no room correction. If you have an extensively treated room then this may not apply. But if you rely on Audyssey to 'equalise' the room, then turning it off an using an analogue source makes no sense to me. YMMV.

 

If you can hear vast differences between digital and analogue sources, it may be that your digital source is not as good as it should be. If you switched to an Oppo 93, or even an Oppo 95, then I am sure that you would prefer the digital source + Audyssey to the analogue source without Audyssey.

It is very difficult to get one system to be brilliant for both movies and music IMO, as you are finding. Their requirements can be quite different - for example, on movie tracks you need really deep bass, really loud. On music, bass rarely goes below 40Hz (about the bottom string on a bass guitar) and even then it doesn’t usually need to peak at 115dB!

 

There is also the issue of Multi-channel v stereo and whether to upmix stereo sources to 5.1 etc. Personally, I prefer to listen to music content in the format in which it was created, so I have a separate (stereo) system for my music collection, which is almost 100% stereo recordings. Oddly, or maybe not, I am very happy to upmix 2 channel movie tracks to 5.1 with Dolby PLIIx though. Again, I think it is because movie tracks are less demanding of us (of us, not the equipment) because there are the visuals to look at on screen and these are bound to direct our full attention away from the sound. With music, this doesn't apply and one focuses solely on the sound.

I have done several upgrades recently that have vastly improved the sound coming through my NR5008.

First I added a Parasound A21 to drive the front r/l speakers. That sounded so good I then added a Parasound A23 to drive the center channel.

I replaced my Oppo 93 with an Oppo 95 and have it connected to the NR5008 with HDMI, 7 multi channel outputs, and analog stereo interconnects. If I am listening to movies I rely on HDMI and use PLIIX Movie DSX to take advantage of my front high speakers. Movies like Transformers never sounded so good.

If I am listening to music dvds then I switch the inputs from HDMI to Multi, to Analog playing Direct to see which sounds best. It just depends on the source material.

If I am listening to FLAC music files or stereo CDs I have found that Analog Direct sounds best to me. Supposedly when you use the Stereo L/R outputs from the Oppo the best sets of DACs are used and I can certainly tell the difference. The Oppo 95's analog outputs really sing to me and the upgrade was more than worth the investment!!!

The beauty of the NR5008 is the multitude of Listening Modes and Audio settings you have to select from. As Kbarnes and I have done don't be afraid to try all the different combinations because depending on your equipment mix, source material, and room acoustics you will have to let your ears be the judge.

Unfortunately my ears are not good enough to hear the difference when Pure Audio is engaged. I guess I will have to practice that one:)

Can anyone help?

I have a TX nr-3008 and I finally installed an extra pair of speaker which I initially used as height speakers and used the wide channels for zone 2 speakers. It turned out that the left channel of either the hight speakers and the zone 2 speakers does not have amplification. The pre-outs seem to be fine. I reconfigured the height speakers into wide spaekers (i.e., I reclaimed the zone 2's and used them as wide speakers), still no amplification fromt he left channel.

Is there anything I can do before I have to ship it for repair. My warranty is expiring this coming September.

I assume you have eliminated the speaker and the wiring as potential causes of the lack of sound? I mean, you've swapped the speaker over and then re-wired if the problem stayed on the left side?

 

You might also try a reset (but be aware you will lose all your settings and will have to run Audyssey again). It's worth a try before you send it away for service.

 

If none of that works, it seems you have an amp gone out. If the unit was out of warranty it might have been worth opening it up and swapping an amp module around, but as it is in warranty that isn't really an option.

 

Reset procedure is:

 

RESET Onkyo to Factory

To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults, turn it on and, while holding down the [VCR/DVR] button on the unit (not on the remote), press the [ON/STANDBY] button (again, on the unit). "Clear" will appear on the display and the AV receiver will enter Standby mode.

post #8126 of 8633
Yes, I did eliminate both the speaker(s) and the wiring from the equation. And, I also did do a reset to no avail.

Thanks for your help!

Wish I could have helped more. Unfortunately then it does sound like a service issue. Good luck with it.

I found on the european onkyo official site a new firmware for 3008:

"..... firmware-update-tx-nr3008-05-07-2012-53187
We are pleased to offer this firmware update for the best possible performance of your AV Receiver.
TX-NR3008
(Version 1101-0800-0310-2101)"


may i ask you the "history" of firmware for 3008 and what each one "updated" on the 3008 ?

above all, which is the last firmware before the new one of few weeks ago ?

i need that information because i am buying a 3008 and i need to understand if it has one of the last firmware or not

hi, just bought a 3008 from a friend

to start, i think to "reset" the ampli and then to check for the firmware ...

about the firmware: do you suggest to update to the latest anyway or it depends on which firware release i have on mine ?

i mean: is there any risk that the update can go wrong and my "new" ampli does not work anymore ?

the other option is not to update and try and, if it works fine, not to update at all.

last question: if i make the setup (audissey, etc, etc) and afterwards i decide to update the firmware, then i must do it again (audissey etc) or they are maintained as i made during the setup ?

sorry if my english not perfect ...
