Marantz SR5006 / Marantz SR6006 Receiver Thread - Page 47

post #1381 of 1955
Hi guys,

I have problems with the Airplay-function of my new Marantz SR5006. The Marantz is connected with a lan-cable, coming from the devolo dlan (as the router is too far away). The Airplay function works fine from the Iphone (well at least most of the times) but not from the computer (Itunes). My routher is the Fritzbox 7330 SL. There must be something wrong with the settings....if I only knew what it could be.....
Interestingly enough, when I first got the Marantz (a couple of days ago) the Airplay function was working fine.
In the menue of my router I clicked the box where it says "always use the same IPv4-address".
In the settings of the Marantz I didn't really do anything as I don't know what to do. I am sorry if my English is not the best. I am hoping you guys can help me! Why can't Itunes connect with the Marantz? I do see the Airplay symbol when I open Itunes though!

Thank you very much!

Cheers,
Alex

P.S.: I have tried to find answers to my problems but the thread is so incredibly long! I know people talked about turning on/off DHCP which I actually tried but no success.

currently I have a Denon avr3312ci and my uncle wants to take over my Denon and I am thinking of getting the 5006. My speakers are 4 ohms. Even with the 125w Denon, it doesn't sound very loud at -10 volume. Would the 5006 be close to the 3312 in term of power? The reason I don't want to get 6006 because I don't want to spend too much money at this time and I don't need pre-out in my setup currently. Thanks for any input.

Once you calibrate a receiver (or pre/pro) using Audyssey, the sound level you hear should always be the same when the volume knob is set to a specific db value, no matter what model of receiver or pre/pro you have. That's one of the purposes for calibrating your equipment.

Most people seem to find a sound level of -20 db to be appropriate. Personally, I find louder levels annoying and close to 0db is painful. However, quite a few people have reported that they need to turn their equipment up to higher levels. It isn't obvious (to me) what might be common among them. I find it distressing to think that so many people have damaged their hearing that badly.

I guess my speakers sensitivity is not high enough. The 3312 plays on my uncle's speakers sound much louder even at -20. I probably will give the 5006 a try. Thanks.
post #1385 of 1955
Your speakers' sensitivity is not supposed to matter so long as your receiver can drive them. The sensitivity of Audyssey's microphone is what controls how loud the sound is supposed to be. Audyssey turns up the receiver's gain until the microphone hears the correct sound level.

However, you might check the db level in the receiver that Audyssey has set for your speakers. If it's at +12db, than it has "pegged" and can't turn up the volume any more. That'll also prevent Audyssey from applying its filters correctly and cause bad sounding audio.

FWIW, for giggles, yesterday afternoon, I dug out the digital sound meter and did a sound check on our dialed in system. The mains are Klipsch, Epic, CF-3's with a 100dB sensitivity. Personally, I rate them at 86dB, 1w/4m where the main listening position is. The center channel is a Klipsch, RC64-II, the surrounds are hung on the wall, KSP-S6, bi-pole surrounds. They're all hooked up to a Marantz, SR5007, which, when all channels are driven, is about 80w/channel.

The informal results of the sound test was, when the volume control was set to 0dB (Audyssey, XT having been run) the 5.2 system shows a, at main listening position, fluctuating reading of 85-95dB during action sequences with regular dialogue being in the 70-75dB range. No large explosions, just normal car, music, dialogue, action style sequence.

Measurements at -20dB gave action readings of 70-75dB. Our normal television listening level is -48dB to -45dB.

Hope the above information is found useful.

Neither the Denon 3312CI nor the Marantz 5006 are rated to drive 4-ohm speakers, however, each should drive them to average volume as you noted with the 3312CI. In order to drive them to a louder volume you'll need to add a more powerful (250W+) external amp.
post #1388 of 1955
Thanks for the input everyone. Now that I learn the 5006 has 2.2 pre-amp out. The money I saved can get me an external amp for the front speakers.

anyone know what just a dash in the top right of the portal display is all about? watched a movie last night and it was fine. got home from work today and noticed there is a dash there. i cant attest for exactly how long it has been there but i just noticed it. im anal so i would think i would have noticed it earlier if it had been there very long. im searching around the manual and google but havent found anything yet

post #1392 of 1955
Does anyone know whether connecting SR6006 with an HDMI 1.4 cable to my Sony internet tv will allow them to share the internet connection? This is a property of HDMI 1.4 and not sure if the Marantz will be able to access the internet via this cable.
post #1393 of 1955
No it wont. You'll need to use the ethernet port which the SR6006 does have.

The receiver doesn't use HDMI with ethernet whether the HDMI cable has it nor not. In fact I haven't seen a receiver yet that uses ethernet over HDMI. Doesn't mean that one doesn't exist though.

Just get a network switch if you need more ethernet ports and connect an ethernet cable to your TV and receiver.
post #1394 of 1955
Hello all. Hope someone can help with this.
I am currently using JRiver in server mode on Win7 OS to stream WAV files to my Marantz SR6006 reciever. I am controlling with JRemote. The files play ok but show up on the receiver as MP3. I cannot figure out how to get them to play as a WAV file and of course I want the best possible quality. I do note on JRemote there is a streaming quality option in settings but it is limited to 64, 128 or 320 kbps and no other options are offered. But I think this only relates to files being streamed to the iPhone anyway so I don't think that's the problem. In JRiver, under Media Server, I have set to "uncompressed".
Does anyone have any suggestions on appropriate settings?
Many thanks.

thanks frogt. I have another question. Maybe you or someone else can help. So I have a Sony 3D tv connected to my SR6006 via HDMI ARC, so I can get antenna audio in my speakers just fine. However, to go to the AMP section, I have to select the particular HDMI input from the Sony menu. Once there, I can see OSD, AMP and other menus just fine. However, when I am in the TV mode (in the Sony menu), I cannot see the OSD, so if I want to change the Surround mode, there's no way of knowing as it doesnt show up in the porthole either. Is there any way to display the OSD menu when not in the HDMI connection mode with the receiver?

thanks in advance!

Although the ACM1H mic is what comes with the 6006, you can also use the ACM1HB or DM-A409 mic as well. Give Marantz parts a call.

Thanks JD. Appreciate your help! Also, I had posted this question earlier. Maybe you'd have some insight into it. Basically, I would like to see the OSD/AMP menu overlay on TV/DVD/BD and can't figure out how to do so. Here it is again (lemme know if its not clear, I'll post a detailed one):

So I have a Sony 3D tv connected to my SR6006 via HDMI ARC, so I can get antenna audio in my speakers just fine.

The GUI needs a video source to overlay on to; however, with an OTA source, there is no video source to the AVR.

hmm. I see what you're saying. However in the older models, You could simply attach a video cable and it would help overlay the Menu on any screen you'd be on. Altho I know from the manual that menu only works over HDMI and not video, so, so much for that. Thx for your help!

cheers man!

If I'm understanding what you're describing you're saying that you're watching OTA TV, via an antenna hooked directly to your TV, right? So you are using your TV's tuner, right? The issue is that you're essentially bypassing the receiver (at least for video) and just watching something directly on the TV. There's no way for the receiver to put the OSD onto what you're watching, because the TV isn't getting it's video from the receiver. It's getting it from the internal tuner. In order to get the OSD you'd need to have an external tuner (like a Tivo or something) hooked up to the receiver, and then watch the video from it on the input the receiver is hooked up to.

I'll try to give you another example that might make it clearer.

Let's say on the back of your TV you have 2 inputs. Let's say you have the receiver hooked up to Input 1. Anything you have hooked up to the receiver will show up on the TV as long as you have the TV on Input 1.

Now lets say you hook a DVD player up and instead of hooking the video output from the DVD player to the receiver (maybe there isn't an unused space on the receiver you can hook it to or something) you hook it directly to the TV in input 2. Now you have to switch the TV to input 2 to watch the DVD player (even if you also have the audio going into the receiver). The Receiver is only attached to input 1, so it can't put the OSD or anything else on the screen whenever you're on input 2. It has no control over what goes on the screen on input 2.

When you have the TV switched to the tuner that's built into it, you're in the same situation. Its essentially a different video input. The receiver can only put the OSD (or anything else!) on the screen when you have the TV set to one of the inputs that receiver is hooked up to.

This will be true for any receiver or other device you might ever hook up to a TV. They can only control what' goes on the screen on the input they have control over.

I hope that makes sense. I'm not sure if I've been very clear, or not. let me know if you have any questions and I'll try to clarify!

Wow. It does!! Thx so much to you and JD! Its perfectly clear and what I was expecting. I had an SR7200 for 10 years and after loyal service it died so had to replace it. I still feel it was much better in terms of usage altho all Marantz have great audio. Also, it had a big display which would tell you the Surround mode you had turned on at the moment. With the new receiver, as all is displayed on the tv, unless I switch to the correct input, I have no way of knowing which mode its on, the fm station playing etc. No worries tho, I plan to attach it to a wifi bridge this wkd, then use the Marantz app on my iphone which I hope will display all the info I need. BTW, this is a great forum, great to see ppl helping ppl and all the brains around!

Ha! I actually replaced an SR7200 myself when I got this 5006! (And actually still use the 7200 as part of my living room audio-only system!).

kool. So you know what I'm talking about when I say its an awesome receiver. Only in mine the ICs IC719 and IC 720 are busted and the repair guy said, he's gonna charge at least $250 to fix it. So, alas its lying in storage now. It seems like a common problem with that model.
post #1405 of 1955
Anyone know what's a good guide to select speakers, placement, size etc.? I got 3 B&Ws for my FL, FR and C and 2 small Cambridge Soundworks for SR, SL. I know this is Marantz forum, so if anyone can direct me to the correct one, much appreciated.

Sorry. One more Q. I have another HDMI input into the tv and when I source into that to watch Bly ray on my comp, the receiver plays the audio fine except its really frustrating not to know the surround mode being played. I know, as the HDMI input to the tv is different, the display won't show up, but is there no way to know the settings? BTW, the settings on the 2 HDMI inputs are differnet, so there's no point changing to the other one to find out the settings. geeeesh....

Ideally, the FL/C/FR with the tweeters of each at seated ear level with the SL/SR about 2'-3' above seated ear position and either directly to the sides or slightly behind the main listening position. Additionally, as noted below the FL/FR speakers towed in towards the main listening position.

FWIW, if one goes to a concert hall during a dress rehearsal and during the practice, move around the venue to different seating positions, they'll notice that live doesn't have a focused sweet spot. Live has an unfocused, lite, airy, omnidirectional quality to it.

The best way I can describe the event is that of one reaching up into the air, trying to pick the sound out of the air but there's no direction to the sound to pick from. Despite what THX, Dolby Labs or other audio labs have to say on the matter, this personal experience is what I try to duplicate in the sound reproduction process.

Ok guys I need help..... I just got the 6006 to use mainly the airplay option , but my question is how do I stream all my FLAC files from my computer to the 06 ? What do I need ? Please help . Thanks!

There are a number of software file servers that you can use including Asset UPnP.
