Refer to p. 64 in the Owner's manual and select another source in Zone 2/3. smile.gif
post #2102 of 2387
As my owners manual has different page numbers to the ones you quote, should I be following the section called "Playback"?
post #2103 of 2387
If it refers to Zones 2/3 .... yup.

Curious about settings for my SR7005. I have (2) Definitive Technology BP-8060ST for my Fronts, and a Definitive Technology CS-8060HD for the center with (2) Definitive Technology SR-8040BP and (1) Martin Logan Dynamo 700watt sub. Curious as to best way to wire the fronts (use LFE or not) and if I should use the Audyssey setup or do it manually. Last question would be should I possibly add an amp like the Emotiva XPA-3 to run the Left Right and Center? Any help to point my in right direction would be great. Moving soon so will be setting system back up from scratch

I'm hoping someone who has experience with the SR7005 can help here. If the answer is somewhere in this thread, or if there is a no-brainer solution, feel free to flame me as long as you can point me in the right direction at the same time. cool.gif

I picked this receiver up from a retailer through Amazon who ensured me it was "indeed brand new, factory fresh" even though the initial release of the SR7005 was ~3 years ago. Upon initial setup, this receiver worked fine. I attempted to complete the firmware update and after the update cycle appeared to be finished, the receiver was stuck in a continuous loop that displayed "Please wait, Update retry". When I checked to see if updates were still needed, the display indicated I had the latest update. I removed the ethernet cable and even tried a hard reset to no avail. I called Marantz and they believed the issue was with the HDMI board (?) and they advised me to take it to my local service provider.

After a MONTH, I finally got my receiver back and wouldn't you know it....the receiver is doing the SAME THING again. The receiver still techincally works even though the display shows it trying to update endlessly, but I can't imagine this is what Marantz intended the receiver to do. I hope this is user error....I really don't want to try to take my receiver in to have the same thing happen again.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

How is your SR7005 connected to the Internet?
When I updated the firmware for the first time I had exactly the same issue. I resolved it by temporarily plugging my SR7005 directly into the modem instead of via a router. The firmware got loaded successfully that time and when all done reconnected the SR7005 back via the router ... You might want to try via this approach ... Good luck.

Or alternatively you could try bring your SR7005 to a friend or neighbors house and try connecting it to their Internet connection.... Often modem or router settings (e.g. firewall) could cause issues.

Regardless of the cable configuration, you'll want to use Audyssey. Beyond that whether you connect the LFE cables is a personal choice as to whether you feel it helps smooth out the bass response or not, although likely only want to experiment with connecting to the FL/FR speakers only. With the cables connected, set the FL/FR speakers to SMALL/80Hz after running Audyssey as there are far more sub control points than speaker control points. The addition of the XPA-3 is not likely to add any additional benefit unless you're currently hearing distortion from the speakers.

Great information! I appreciate it and look forward to setting this up! smile.gif

Thanks for the reply, smaragd. My home is wired with Cat5. I have an 8 port Trendnet switch in the media can, which connects the signal from the media panal to an all-in-one router/modem in a "media closet" in another room. This is where the Marantz receiver, PS3, and Dish receiver are located. The receiver is directly connected to the router/modem which then feeds back to the media panal located in the media can. From there I have multiple connections activated throughout the house with 1 ft ethernet cables connecting the 8 port switch to the media panal.

Any suggestion on router/modem settings to change that might help in this situation? I can try this and play around with the internet connection, but I still suspect it's a receiver issue. When I go through the GUI and check for firmware updates, I'm getting a message I have the latest update, but the receiver is still trying to update endlessly.

UPDATE: I was able to resolve the firmware update loop issue. I'm posting this in the event it is helpful for others in the future.

Ultimately, the network chip/card needed to be reset, but not the same way the receiver is typically reset. First, power the receiver off. With the front panal open, simultaneously hold the up arrow (triangle) on the circular pad located on the right side and the pure direct button located on the left side for a few seconds. Then, while continuing to hold the up arrow & pure direct buttons, power on the receiver. Continue to hold the buttons as the receiver display flashes/blinks at least 4 times, then release. If the receiver starts up in BD + Stereo mode, the reset was completed correctly. After the network connection is re-established, I was then able to access the firmware update and successfully complete the airplay upgrade without the looping issue. Note: Not sure if this matters, but I did not access the upgrade from the prompt that appears on the screen after the network connection is re-established; I accessed the upgrade through the menu options.

I can't help but wonder if I even needed to take my receiver to the local service provider at all as initially advised by Marantz. Oh well, issue resolved.

Cheers.

I am very happy you were able to solve the situation with your AVR. Thanks for having enough patience and determination to hang in there and get the job done. I am sure there will be more than a few owners who will read and benefit from your valuable post.
post #2114 of 2387
Hello I'm having a problem using my new oppo105 with my 7005. I cross posted this in the oppo forum as well.
1) When I play the SBT, I notice that my Marantz and oppo are both processing the sound. When i have the volume turned up on the AVR there is sound coming out and competing with the oppo(in fact, it sounds slightly more delayed or faster). I cant totally mute the AVR or no sound will come out from the oppo DAC. So i have to turn the volume all the way down on the AVR. does this seem wrong? Do I have something set up incorrectly?



Set up is as follows:
1) HDMI from oppo to AVR
2) 5.1 analog from oppo into AVR
3) RCA L/R from oppo into AVR(CD input)
4) USB from touch into oppo
5) RCA from touch into AVR (aux)
When i play the touch via USB it wont play multiroom. The only way I can achieve this is by changing the audio on the touch from oppo to analog/digital audio, then select AUX on my receiver. I must be doing something wrong?
Do I need to change something in "amp assign " ?
Thanks for any help.
post #2115 of 2387
Can anyone help me with this? I just got off the phone with Oppo. They said there must be something wrong/set up wrong with my Marantz. He said "there is no way that under HDMI, the oppo and marantz should be processing sound. He mentioned something about "DSP modes in the AVR" Thanks
post #2116 of 2387
In the Marantz setup make sure:
(1) input is set to the proper HDMI input (2) If you want for the Oppo to decode and not the Marantz, choose Multi-channel in the Marantz DSP modes. Also make sure in your Oppo setup that you want to output PCM instead of bitstream. That should do it! wink.gif
post #2117 of 2387
Thanks. How do i find the menu to make the following changes? "(2) If you want for the Oppo to decode and not the Marantz, choose Multi-channel in the Marantz DSP modes. Also make sure in your Oppo setup that you want to output PCM instead of bitstream. "
post #2118 of 2387
First ignore the setup I described earlier involving HDMI for Audio (PCM). We're going to use the 5.1 analog out from the OPPO. I came to the conclusion that It's better to use the Oppo's Superior analog audio stage powered by two ESS Sabre32 Reference Digital-to-Analog Converters (DAC). In other words, it's a bit better than our Marantz Sr7005's DAC. So that means, use the multi-channel analog out from the Oppo for audio and HDMI for Video.
Let's start with your Oppo, in your audio setup select multichannel analog out instead of HDMI digital out. In the Marantz, hit the Menu button, then Input Setup, then this is where you match your connection with the source. Match BD for instance with HDMI# that you connected under [HDMI] (for video),and for Digital (you'll pick NONE). You'll ignore the [COMP] it's for connecting legacy component video.
The last part of this setup involves the remote control. Hit the A/D button to the left of the volume (-). This is the Input Mode, hit it till it toggles Auto> HDMI > Digital > 7.1 CH IN.
And for playback turn the input to BD, it should auto-default to Multi-channel, if not hit the surround mode until it is Multichannel. Enjoy!cool.gif

Please describe your methodology for level matching the two, or do you personally feel it is not necessary to play two audio devices at the same volume level when comparing them?
post #2120 of 2387
Yes, I believe in balancing the levels but not against the components. Each source is independently controlled anyway. That would only benefit direct sound comparisons between sources in an editorial equipment reviews for example. What I'm most concern about is the multichannel level matching, which is setup in the Oppo after you had picked Multichannel audio output.The preceding menu almost always lead you to multichannel level setup, so that the decoded analog signal are balanced in all channels. After that Audessey does the
balancing act against the room.
post #2121 of 2387
I see, you don't level match them. Got it.
post #2122 of 2387
thanks very much.

Hi owners of Marantz SR7005.

So, I just bought Marantz SR7005 and Yamaha RX-A2020 receivers.
I am going to compare them "side by side" and pick the one I like most.

Question .......... as someone who has not read the manual yet and knows very little about initial set up of Marantz SR7005. What do you suggest my first steps should be>? Which setting should I use? Anything I should know when trying to evaluate the sound of this beauty?

thank you.
post #2124 of 2387
Read the "Audyssey 101/FAQ Guide" linked in my sig. smile.gif
post #2125 of 2387
Curious .... under what setting do you guys listen to your music with 7005 model? Pure direct? Stereo All Channel?

thanks

I use both depending on the music. Curious as to what you've thought about the difference in sound bw the Yamaha and marantz?

PURE DIRECT will disengage Audyssey and bass management.
post #2128 of 2387
For 2 channel music I use pure direct with 2 full range speakers. I tend not to listed to MC music, but if I did, maybe MC stereo, or PLII Music.
post #2129 of 2387
Hello I'm having handshake problems with my FIOS STB and my SR7005. Currently I have my LCD hooked into my 7005(HDMI) into ARC1. Then I have my STB hooked into my AVR via HDMI. Should I leave the LCD hooked into ARC1, then hook the STB via HDMI into input 2 then run a Optical from the STB into the 7005? Thanks.
post #2130 of 2387
Hello, can anyone chime in if this is correct? Thx
