Most of my equipment is 17.1" wide which I think is kinda standard at least from what I've seen.

The bulk of the body, ie the metal top and sides you would lift off for internal servicing, is indeed 17.1" wide, or so, however the unit's front faceplate is a tad wider, just a hair wider than 17.25" I'm afraid, so I don't think it would fit in your existing cabinet. [It has slightly rounded corners so it is hard to measure precisely by eye but I tried (using a yardstick); you would need a gigantic caliper, which I don't own, to be more precise.]

Including the protrusion necessary for the volume and input selector knobs, the unit could fit in a 17.1 or 17.25" wide slot if the front 2" of the unit, or so, were forced to overhang the front edge of the shelf. [if your cabinet has doors this means they probably wouldn't close, though] Even with the front 2" overhanging the actual shelf, at least all four feet of the unit would be properly and fully supported, so functionally this would be quite acceptable, visually acceptable would be up to you.

The width is the main body width...the face plate actually is a tiny bit wider so maybe that is how Marantz measured 17.32. Mine is in an entertainment center so it was somewhat hard to measure.
Thank you also m.zillch (I was typing my reply as you posted yours).

Thanks alot guys, I really appreciate it. Frohlich, your comment about measuring your "unit" literally cracked me up!

The 17.25" has me a little concerned as that is the MAX of my rack opening. I may have to disassemble the rack a little to get it in there. I guess it depends on how bad I want it right?

I checked out your HT Frohlich and I must say Nice... I'll bet it looks and sounds great!

Thanks again...

yup, "the unit measurement" almost cost me a keyboard...

if you can disassemble your "unit" (i can tell that's going to become a running gag in this thread... ) to a point where you can get past the door opening, it shouldn't be much of an issue once it is in there... the depth (or lack thereof) of the av7005 can help a bit here (dependent, of course, on what you already have in there)...

imo, it'd be worth the effort...

the "initial thought" is that it's the old "hdmi sequencing" issue raising it's ugly head, but since it just started, that's unlikely...

1) have you tried a "hard reset" of the processor?

2) have you done any firmware updates to connected components?

edit: 3) are you using hdmi control?
1) Nope, havent figured that one out yet.

2) Everything is up to date

3) What is that?
post #1386 of 9615

1) it's on page 115 of the manual, "resetting the microprocessor".

2) ok, no source component firmware changes since the problem started.

3) if i tell you, you'll have to let me drive your m3... hdmi control is the demon spawn, a solution in search of a problem, and a general all around headache. other than that, it's great. see pages 55 and 80 for what it does and how to disable it.

Hey thanks I actually just picked up an Oppo BDP-83 and needed these functions for my Prontos and RC-9500! Might even use the HD-DVD's as well. Anyways I'm still enjoying my old AV-8003 and waiting for the smoke to clear before pulling the trigger.
post #1388 of 9615
Any views on the relative merits of these machines given the significant price difference? My main choice criterion is playback of SACDs in surround. What will the Integra give me that the Marantz will not? Other equipment includes B&W speakers (804s, HTM1 and CDM9s), and the Oppo BDP 83. Haven't focused on a companion amp yet. Currently using a Rotel RSX 1067 receiver.
post #1389 of 9615
Can't talk about the relative merits of the Integra, but - I also play many SACDs, I also own the Oppo BDP 83 and am feeding the Marantz PCM from the Oppo via an HDMI cable. The Marantz does not accept DSD from the Oppo. I miss nothing! Many "Golden Ear" Forum members have stated that you really can't tell the difference between a DSD feed and a PCM feed.

The Marantz AV-7005 has replaced my Rotel RSP-1066 Processor and the proverbial "veil" has been lifted. Couldn't be happier with the Marantz!!!!

i was hot on the 80.2 trail for quite awhile (i have a 9.9 in a box right now)...

the integra will click. a negative.

the integra has xt32. a positive.

the integra is still a bit buggy. not sure how buggy, as i've only followed that thread in cursory manner for the last couple weeks. a negative.

the marantz (so far), has shown to be stable (we've got one error report though that is yet unresolved). a positive, but subject to change as more new owners chime in, and existing owners exercise them more.

the marantz is better looking. subjective positive.

the integra has a few other goodies, such as balanced analog in's... some of those goodies might play into a purchasing decision. possible positive.

haven't really paid too much attention to the 7.1 vs. 9.1, as i live in a 5.1 world. so no opinion.

gui's don't matter to me. as long as they work. a wash between the units.

dsd decoding is a non-factor, imo/ime. as long as your player will decode it (which your oppo does), it's a "bullet point" with no need behind it. so a wash between the units there.

hope that helps... fire back with any other questions...

The most important question... How does it sound? The AV8003 blows the 9.8 completely out of the water sonically.
post #1392 of 9615

- as the question at hand was the 80.2 compared to the av7005, i'm not sure how the av8003 or the 9.8 are germane to the question...

- taffy pull that i won't engage in... see my earlier post on that subject...

Well it's similar... New model Integra vs New model Marantz. I'm just curious btw... I learned my lesson to stay away from Onkyo/Integra

i thought i had learned my lesson too, then i got the 9.9 and re-inforced my lesson (clicky and ugly), and i was STILL hot on the 80.2 trail... sometimes, i'm hard headed....
post #1395 of 9615
I heard the 40.1 and i didn't liked it with music. So i got the AV7005.

As of today two of my frinds sold their 40.1 and 80.1 and also got an AV7005.

Especially with Stereo and DTS the Marantz sounds much better.

I haven't decided to buy yet, but I use a 3000 and your lie will be great if I do buy! If you haven't sent to RemoteCentral, I'm sure those over there would love this too. Thanks again!

The remote codes for the Marantz AV-7005 are now officially on the Harmony database.

I had previously manually set up my Harmony One to control the AV-7005, but just tried using Harmony's database.

Only one problem with my Activities and Devices - the "Band" control to switch between FM and AM radio wouldn't work.

Tried to "Learn" that button - but, nothing!

Finally, had to resort to customizing a button on the Harmony's LCD screen to control the change in radio bands.

So far, everything now is working well. Surely took Harmony long enough, since I was told by them that it was there one week ago and it wasn't. Just pleased that the database is finally there!

Just got my AV7005 a couple days ago. It was replacing a Sherbourn PT 7010A pre pro. I have a couple opf observations on the unit. First - it is a bit dimensionally challenged when it comes to putting it into a rack. Depth is fine - the Sherbourne was actually deeper. The width just barely doesn't fit in the rack. I "solved" the problem by putting the shelf in upside down - gave just enough additional clearance for the thing to fit. Heightwise, it is also just about 1/4" too high to fit exactly in the rack spaces. I am considering removing the feet - using some rubber feet a little shorter than the supplied plastic feet so I can put a vent panel above. The thing runs very cool - it has been on all day and is barely warm to the touch. I still dont like going directly above -like to give it a little room to breathe.
Sound quality is, in a word, stunning. Plucky, detailed, transparent. Made a tremendous change over the Sherbourne. Cant comment on the analog as my Linn LP12 refuses to spin, so i am off to Ebay to find parts....
I did upgrade the firmaware - dont know what changed but it took about 20 minutes to do.
I have used the NET/USB - running a NAS drive on my home network. No setup at all - it found everything on the network right away and I could start playing everything. Absolutely smooth. I am SO GLAD I did not get suckered into the Emotiva UMC-1 debacle. This thing works. The sound is fabulous. My son stuck a USB drive into the front and started playing what only a teenager would call "music'.
I have a Harmony - just got it programmed today. Works mostly. I cannot change the HDMI out from the remote - nor can i change bands on the radio from the remote. Everything else appears OK.
I would agree with the users who feel that the menu structure is less than user friendly - it is far from intuitive. I am still scratching my head to figure out how to do some things - it will, I suppose, come with time. The Engrish manual is less than fully descriptive of all of the functions and what they mean - lots of flipping pages back and forth.
The only real complaint I have right now is that to move from Plasma to projector I have to punch a button on the front. Given the sound quality, ease of setup, and price point, I would call this one a real winner.

That's great.

Thank you.

Nice, thanks for the quick reply.

Actually played around with it some more and found it was more disturbing than I had previously thought. When the situation occurs(no sound or picture) the unit doesnt respond to any input whatsoever. I had the display set to auto-off so I didnt notice anything being odd since I was used to not seeing a display. However, when I flipped down the front panel, nothing would display there either. When I hit the menu button or even the volume knob, nothing would happen. So after hitting the power cycle things worked again. Im finding that the unit completely is unresponsive even though the power is on.

Im going to try the hard reset and see if that works but Im thinking this is not going to fix it.

Do yourself a favor and put away your harmony while you're troubleshooting. If you call Marantz TS they'll tell you to do the same to minimize the variables. Try a factory reset and see if you have full functionality using the supplied remote only, then try your harmony.

You must have missed the part where I specified that I was using the controls on the unit itself. But to clarify for you and everyone else that might make the same mistake, I havent been using the Harmony since the first suggestion a couple pages ago.

Just did a factory reset so Ill see how long that works.

Sorry to have missed that. Good luck with your reset. I hope you give the 7005 another try if it turns out you have a lemon.

Where have people purchased the AV7005? Are there any reputable online dealers that are discounting it?
post #1405 of 9615
Trying to weigh the Integra 40.2 vs the Marantz. Can you run more than a 7.1 set-up using the Marantz via the unbalanced inputs?

I would like to run a traditional 7.1 system with the addition of front height speakers but am unclear if I need a Integra 80.2 in order to accomplish this.

So I guess I am asking if I can run a 9.1 system.

Any thoughts?

''limited'' to 7.1 inputs and 7.2 pre-outs.

The rack mount kit for the 8003, RMK8003AV, works with the 7005 also. With the rack ears, the 7005 takes up 4U w/o the feet and 5U w/.
