A new firmware has become available. Any idea what's been improved/added?

At this point (as a month or so has passed) I am not sure if my late reply will be of any assistance. but I found this information posted on the Marantz site: http://marantz.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/14/session/L3RpbWUvMTM1MjQzMzIwOC9zaWQvOVI0Zl9PYWw%3D

The information directly refers to the repeater functionality that Selden Ball was referring to earlier. I had encountered some set top box issues early in my SR7005 ownership (back in April of this year). I found this info, called my CATV service provider, and requested the patch update. They performed the update while I waited on the phone; it helped. Hoping this may be of some assistance to you.

How many are going to upgrade to the 8001?
post #1805 of 2387
Debating between a Marantz SR7005 and the newer Denon 3313. Up here in Canada, I am offered the Marantz from an authorized retailer at $1299 + tax, while the Denon is about 1200 + tax in the states, so I'd assume it's a little more up here in Canada....

1. Any reason to go for the Denon instead of Marantz? I have a pair of Focal 826S now, might go the B&W route later. Sounds to me that Marantz and Denon should be good for both brands of speakers. I am going to run 2ch music through it more than 5.1 movies, but from HDMI sources (Apple TV and PS3 as transport mainly).

2. What do you think is a good price for the 7005 these days? Is $1299 for a new from an authroized reseller with warranty a good deal? Or would better ones be had coming Black Friday/Canadian Boxing Day?

Advise appreciated. Thanks!
post #1806 of 2387
With black friday coming so soon I'd hold off and get whichever one is the cheapest that day. Warranty length and ease of implementing specifically where you live is nice, but also consider that as electronics go AVRs have a pretty good track record, so the odds of breaking are miniscule compared to mechanical devices like disc players. This is why the warranty is in years, and not just 90 days or 1 year. The odds of it breaking on its own without abuse is pretty small.

Just upgraded and briefly went through the menus, but didn't have anything stick out to me.

It will probably take a Denon/Marantz enthusiast/insider on AVS (batpig/jdsmoothie, we're looking at you smile.gif ) to answer this question as I haven't see
post #1808 of 2387
Maybe something to do with the Pandora issue that popped up?

Likely similar to the firmware recently applied to the AV7005 as I noted in that thread, although no Pandora fix included ...

Hi Guys

I'm trying to access a shared folder on my PC through the receiver.
I have one folder shared on my C drive called music.
The PC name is "USER-PC"

When select "Network/USB - > Media Server " I can see the following.
USER-PC: Administrator : (Not Authorized)

Can anyone please help me with the setup required on the PC end to share folders so the receiver can access them

Thanks

Hi

I had a look at the link, don't see anything that would help me with the actual sharing of the folders on Windows 7.

You checked the setting it referred to on your HTPC?

Dear Marantz customer,
Please be advised that Pandora Internet Radio has
recently altered certain connection requirements which
have temporarily blocked our products from connecting
to the Pandora service. Our engineers are currently
working hard and will have a firmware update available
as soon as possible via the internet to resolve this
issue. This should not affect your product’s ability to
receive other music streaming services. Please visit
our website for firmware update schedule information
after 12/6.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that
Pandora’s alteration has caused.

Need help with my marantz sr7005. No display shows once you open the flip down panel below the led blue circle. I switch to off/on the display button but still no display. Tried to reset but still has the problem. The unit is working except for the display.
Appreciate if anyone can share how to fix the problem..not sure if it has to do with the resistor.

Thanks.
post #1817 of 2387
Are you referring to the sub display on the AVR under the front panel flap or the GUI display to the TV? Try unplugging the power cord from the AVR for a few minutes, otherwise if resetting the microprocessor doesn't resolve the issue, it will likely need to be repaired.
post #1818 of 2387
Yes the sub display under the front panel flap. GUI is working fine actually everything are working great except no display under the front panel flap.
post #1819 of 2387
Did you accidentally push the pure direct button? This will turn off the display you're talking about....
post #1820 of 2387
Right, but AFAIK, the display should appear for at least a few seconds first before going dark with the Pure Direct setting.
post #1821 of 2387
The display is triggered by an internal switch on the door (you can't see it), much like a refrigerator door triggers its light. For some reason the switch is broken or stuck on yours. I'd try smacking the door fully shut and then swing it fully open, a tad aggressively, to try to shake the stuck switch loose, a few times. You are probably still under warranty if you'd prefer to send it in, or if you are handy with such things, open it up to investigate.

The trigger position on mine is such that the panel display extinguishes itself only once the door is 99% shut. Most people probably don't even notice the turn on/off nature of the panel based on the door position.

Hey Folks...just received and installed my new SR7005 and am very happy with the results. However, i installed it in my equipment closet which is in my TV room. I've searched the posts on IR extenders and the RX101, but am still confused.
It appears that the remote is IR only. The RX101 is bluetooth with "ir receivers". So my question is does the RX101 still need to be "line of sight" in order to function as an IR repeater with the SV7005 remote? I have a PS3 I use as my BD player and it has a add-on remote that is both Bluetooth and IR, which is great for my purposes, so I can control the PS3 in the closet. I don't think the marantz remote is both IR and BT, but I've searched everywhere seeking to confirm this and have had no luck. Based on this, I can't see how the RX101 would help me with accessing the 7005 when the closet door is closed.
post #1823 of 2387
count me in the club guys, I picked my SR7005 yesterday and wrapped it up with Christmas wrapping paper and I am anxiously waiting for Christmas morning to play with it.....its a huge upgrade for me from a low-middle of the road Onkyo. I have no gripes with the Onkyo and i was planning to get a higher end Onkyo unit but this was a great price and i couldnt pass it up. I will be using it with my Klipsch kf-26, quintet series V speakers and Onkyo skw770 sub. the Onkyo did a decent job of pushing sound through the Klipsch speakers and it sounded pretty good. But I am really looking forward to the extra power of the SR7005 and I can only imagine at this point how its going to sound. I have already made friends with the audyessy set up so at least thats one less thing i have to learn. What really sold me on this was the ability to set up the 11 speakers and toggle through different "sound scapes" to see what sounds the best. Bob

remember when you and i experimented with this? smile.gif
post #1825 of 2387
^Yes. The switch is very quiet. I can't even hear it on my AV7005, but then again there is other computer noise going on which may be masking it. Or, it could be an optical switch which is silent, in which case the culprit could be dust having fallen on the sensor. A quick puff of air, or a strategically smacked shut door motion, could cure it.

I've actually given up on the RX101, there are mobile apps that control the SR7005 in pretty much the same way as the original remote but via wifi. I use DeRemote on my ipad and prefer it much over the original. Before the ipad I was using AVR-remote on an Android device. Also very user friendly and better functionality than Marantz own apps on both mobile platforms. The great thing about the IOS and Android apps is that they work through the whole house as long as there is wifi, so line of sight is no longer an issue.

The Pandora firmware update is available now for the 7005. The update went smooth for me and Pandora works fine now. I use my ipod for Pandora but I figured I might as well keep the receiver fully functional.

Just tried to download the new firmware. Froze up again! (This happened on the first firmware update, as well.) Unit would not even turn off, so I had to unplug. When plug back in it continues to update.

Any idea what's going on? I'm worried that one of these times, I am going to brick the damn thing!

Thanks

Does this receiever use a standard audyssy mic?

I am looking at buying one open box and it has no mic and a different remote, but a great deal otherwise.

ACM1HB. That's the one you're supposed to use. There are different models but you should use the right one.
