Will they have the right features?

who knows? i doubt they had a copy of an onkyo spec sheet when it got designed... tongue.gif

but likely most of them....

Hello,

I want to use second HDMI out with a computer monitor, so I will get secondary screens for the music listening (good idea do not turn on projector each time you want listen music)
I tried to connect several monitors: 17'' (via HDMI to DVI adapter), 19'' (via HDMI to DVI adapter), 22'' (HDMI).
Original video/audio signal is coming from Network player (HDMI input) which is 1080p.

17'' (via HDMI to DVI adapter): doesn't show anything. Zero.
19'' (via HDMI to DVI adapter): Every time says "Out of range", no matter what settings I select under (input setup->video). I tried to select different resolutions (under input setup->video) and even turn off video processing.
22'' (HDMI): After I setup resolution to auto (under input setup->video) it shows the picture. But! It takes from 10 to 20 minutes before it shows picture. I guess av7005 trying auto adjust signal and recycles many many times (monitor goes on, idle, on, idle, ...) before it shows anything. Also I have to turn monitor of and no in order to make marantz start recognizing the monitor.

I have question - Does anyone succeed to connect monitor? I would prefer to connect smaller monitor (17'' or 19''). Maybe the issue is that smaller screen sizes don't capable to show 1080p original signal that is coming from network player. If it is the case, I will use 1080p capable monitor, but I don't want each time turn it on/off each time and wait 20 minutes (see above).

Please share your experience about using monitors as secondary screens for the music (Including unit settings and monitor models).

Thank a lot,
Denis.

The PC monitor needs to be set to a standard TV resolution which is generally not the case for a PC monitor so a 1080p HDMI monitor is likely the way to go. Also set the AVR "Resolution" to 1080p vice "Auto".

Flip the front panel down, and press the button labeled "HDMI out". This will change the HDMI video signal to HDMI 2. Repeat to change back to HDMI 1.

Thinking about getting one of these for a 2.1 system. This should work right? Any suggestion on mail order sources that discount?
post #8380 of 9615
If that's what you want, go for it but a bit of overkill for a 2.1 AVR. What are your AVR needs?

confused.gif

There are many trusted online discount sources. To name a few, Crutchfield and Vann's, whom I've used and Accessories4less which get rave reviews here. Make your choice, give them a call and see what the best delivered price is that you can get.

Yeah that is what I thought too: the monitor/tv must be 1080p. The only thing that makes me worry that 22'' monitor I tried to connect is 1080p monitor and has HDMI input. av7005 some reason doesn't recognize this monitor. Even if I have 1080p resolution selected in the settings. Funny that it actually recognizes monitor only if I have monitor connected and ON and I change something in the settings (input setup->video) and apply these changes. But if I turn off and on the unit it doesn't recognize the monitor.

I think it is the monitor issue, maybe it is doesn't follow "handshake" standard that is applied to HD TVs. I need to try some other 1080p TVs/monitor to get more information on this.

It could be the connector cable betwen the computer monitor and the AVR as you're now in high speed territory.

See personal computers here.
post #8383 of 9615
Many modern AVRs refuse to output any video if the display does not support HDCP. Might that be happening here? (I don't recall if the AV7005 has that restriction.)
post #8384 of 9615
The system will be used primarily for music (AirPlay, lossless hi-Rez streamed from a NAS, and blu-ray), Xbox gaming, and occasional movies.

Based on your above and your stated 2.1 purpose, the SR7005 would be serious overkill.

You wrote: "Thinking about getting one of these for a 2.1 system. This should work right?"

I would recommend a much less powerful unit unless you just have to get the SR7005 because doing so will make you all warm and fuzzy inside. Nothing wrong with that but my guess is, that's not what you're expecting out of the AVR when you ask; "Thinking about getting one of these for a 2.1 system. This should work right?." And yes, it will work.

^If you want video switching built in to the receiver you get, I think you are locked into getting a surround sound receiver/pre-pro, like it or not. If you are content to do your video switching through your TV's numerous inputs, instead, you could buy a much simpler 2 channel (stereo only) setup and do your "bass management" via the crossover most likely already in your subwoofer. The majority of them have one that AVR people usually bypass, but you'd actually use yours.

If you want Audyssey, that would lock you into an AVR (with surround sound, not just stereo) as well.

Do you never listen to 5.1 encoded sources?confused.gif

You don't have to get a center speaker if you don't want or can't fit one, ya know; all AVR's have a mode of 4.1, no center, which works quite well, arguably even better in some circumstances, and just an extra pair of small, modest speakers for the rear, added to the fronts, qualifies as surround sound.

In my opinion, surround sound reproduction from encoded sources (especially once calibrated via a supplied microphone), is the most important advancement to home audio since the CD, way back in 1982. Everything else, such as SACD, has been mostly "fluff" and marketing ploys.

Really enjoying the 7005, which replaced an Integra DHC 9.9.

I set it up with a new OppO BDP-93.

Question for you all. I have the OPPO set to bitstream, and while watching the newest Star Trek last night (dolby true HD) the Marantz actually displayed DTS Surround! Any clue why it would display that? I double checked and the OPPO is set to bitstream, so not sure why the Marantz didn't display TrueHD.


thanks all,

stieger

(edit) I just went back and double checked the Oppo, and ensured it was sent to bitstream. With a DTS MA dvd, the marantz still does not display DTS MA. Curious if I'm just getting "vanilla" DTS Surround. Beginning to get a bit annoying....

Not trying to be coy in my question/answer, what are you expecting the AVR to do?

If you're wanting a receiver to do some switching and have a few whistles and bells and you're wanting in a 2.1 system, then something like a Denon AVR1713, which delivered, can be had at Vann's for $400.00. The AVR1713 is a 5.1 channel system with all the whistles and bells which folks are wanting in an AVR today one can grow their speaker needs into.

If you can give me a better idea what your budget and expectations are, that would be helpful.

Something similar happened to my AV7005 after runing audissey. I had to reset the unit and rerun audissey. I even tried saving my settings, but upon reset and reloading the same problem happened.
Good luck.

ensure that you are sending the correct codec from the disk...

if you are not getting the codec you want, it is ALWAYS a setting on the player or disk, not the pre-pro... the pre-pro is passive, it takes what it gets... it has no control (other than the initial handshake that broadcasts what it is capable of) over what the player sends...

I am looking to replace my Pioneer SC-37 AVR with the AV7005 & Outlaw Audio 7700. I have not gone through any posts or the manual yet & I have a few questions if you guys don't mind. Does the AV7005 have an OSD overlay for volume? All of my components are in a Sanus A/V Rack in a closet & it would be nice to have this option as a feature. How well does the Airplay feature work & can you use it in the 2nd & 3rd zones? Also I was wondering if anyone here has this combo & what their thoughts were on it? This seems to be one of the best combos for a 7.1 system in a reasonable price range.

Thanks in advance
post #8393 of 9615
If you haven't already purchased the external amp, you may want to consider the Denon 4311CI instead which would not only bump up to the higher version of Audyssey MultEQ XT32, but also likely allow you to forgo using an external amp as it is 4-ohm rated.

1. Yes, there is a volume OSD for 2D video (not for 3D).
2. Although Airplay will play to Zones 2/3, it must also be selected in the main zone when doing so (ie. no independent source in the main zone).
post #8394 of 9615
Does anyone have the 7005 with an SVS as-eq1 attached? If yes, do you like? Single or dual subs? Is this then somewhat the same as a unit with XT32 like the Denon 4311?
post #8395 of 9615
^^
It would be for the sub, yes ... not for the speakers though of course.
post #8396 of 9615
So I 'should' be better off with this for my Submersive then just XT itself on the AVR? I don't have options on sub location and treating the room because....ah the better half biggrin.gif

If I had not just got my 7005 and XPA-5 new, I would go straight to the XT32 units, but too late for that now and I got a good deal on a used SVS AS-EQ1 so I think I will be happier with this combination until I get another AVR hopefully long down the road wink.gif

Plus I think I will be good if/when I get another submersive too cool.gif
post #8397 of 9615
^^^

you could likely sell the av7005/xpa and buy a 4311 and come out ahead... wink.gif

and then put the money you were gonna spend on the as-eq1 into the 2nd submersive kitty... smile.gif

Going from a pre to a reciever -> bad idea
post #8399 of 9615
^^^

not going to a better featured avr from a lesser featured pre simply because of older beliefs, is, ummm, misguided...

objectively, the 4311 is a better piece of equipment... i have extensive experience with both pieces, and have measured both in my room... subjectively, an area i don't really like to go, the measurements are backed up...

furthermore, the pre in question is merely a clone of a lower level model from the SAME cem introduced in the same year... so you can't even drag out the normal audiophile gobbledegook about "high quality pre's with better parts built by certified virgins, etc."....

Going from separates to an all-in-one, good quality receiver typically saves space, set up time, heat, electricity, cabling, metal (one chassis not two), and money. Most importantly, the notion that "receivers inherently are of inferior sound quality" is a long held audiophile myth perpetuated by the high-end makers (and the magazines which cater to them, by collecting their advertising dollars), in an endeavor to sell twice as much gear; that gear also typically being sold with a much higher profit margin and with intentionally limited ("protected region") distribution, so there is less competition between vendors, which normally keeps the price down for the consumer.

The "high end" retail machine's only defense is usually to pooh-pooh the listening abilities (and audio systems) of those of us who speak this truth and expose their long standing, profit-driven myth. What they don't have, however, is scientific evidence to back their claims, other than anecdotal evidence and sighted (not double blind) listening evaluations without careful level-matching (using instrumentation) and other protocols, used to preclude expectation bias and the placebo effect.

I would agree a 4311 (also sold as an A100), if within one's price range, would seem to be the best option at this point. An SR7005 (or the similar 3311) would be a third less money still, and nearly the same, except for the loss of XT32.
