Neither model will. D&M models no longer include HDCD decoders.

You can purchase a wireless router that is capable of being set to "bridge" mode which would be connected to the RJ-45 jack on the 5006. To play Pandora, you will need a device that can pass it to the 5006 (eg. smart phone app or smart TV).

Damn. I guess I'm just never going to be able to find out if I can hear the difference on any of these albums or not! Oh well. (Kind of like how I apparently waited too long to get a receiver that would decode DSD, not that it's that big a deal to have my player decode it and just send it as PCM, but still).
post #1744 of 1955
The newer 6007, 7007, and 7701 can all decode DSD over HDMI.
post #1745 of 1955
Ah, well then I also didn't wait long enough (For DSD decoding in a Marantz receiver)! Oh well. There's zero chance I'll be buying a new receiver any time soon after buying this one so recently. I guess I'll just have to live with PCM from my player (which is fine honestly).

I know that my new player (UD5005) doesn't but I can't figure out if my new receiver (SR5006) does or not. The info from Marantz doesn't seem to address it one way or the other, but the pages for it on a few online stores seem to indicate that it does.

Anyone know for sure?
I would think that the disc player would need to do the decoding. I think that OPPO players do. The output from the player would be handled by the Marantz. Maybe I'm not understanding, but I don't think that HDCD is an output format (like dolby or dts). It is more like DVD/BD/etc...

If the player is bit-streaming the CD to the receiver (most digital connections) a receiver should be able to decode the HDCD data on it's own. At least that's how I've always understood it to work (basically the player or the receiver can do the decoding).
post #1748 of 1955
That's the way it used to work. Unfortunately HDCD decoding of bitstreamed CDs was dropped from most AVRs and pre/pros a few years ago. Reasonably priced disc players (< $250) don't include it, either. I guess Microsoft must be charging absurdly high licensing fees. frown.gif
post #1749 of 1955
Right, when I said "a receiver should be able to decode the HDCD data on it's own" I should have been clearer: a receiver with HDCD decoding capabilities should be able to do that. That's why I was asking about whether the SR-5006 could do it or not, the Marantz site and documentation doesn't say one way or the other but several online stores (like Crutchfield) claim that it does, but don't give enough detail for me to trust it. It sounds like it doesn't, which is unfortunate but not a huge issue.
post #1750 of 1955
HDCD is owned and licensed by Microsoft. If a device supports it, it's mentioned in the manual and there's an indicator on the front panel display that lights up when an HDCD signal is detected. That's the case for my av8003, for example. The av7701 and av8801 do not have it.

The 5002 had it. The 5005 and later do not. I haven't downloaded the 5003 or 5004 manuals.

Does anyone know what the default setting for speakers is? A or A+B ? My son was hitting buttons and I think I fixed it,

Problem before I changed the above is listed below :

My girlfriend swears she saw a message on the screen that said like " Right Speaker Off " I have no clue what that means.
All I know is alot of the channels have no sound or no center channel sound its weird!!! Its set to AUTO but the sound is just missing
like I have no center channel or almost nothing at all except the subwoofer.

If I change it from AUTO to say Dolby Pro Logic II or something then the sound is back to normal.

Hopefully some of you guys have a clue what he pushed it sucks smile.gif

Try pressing the "Speaker A/B" button.

Haha I know and he always wants the remote I have, Thanks again.
post #1756 of 1955
You might consider trying what some owners do which is to buy a cheap $10 universal remote for your son and tell him that is his remote that basically can only power on/off and change sources, and that he is not to touch your Marantz remote now that he has his own. smile.gif

I have an interesting issue that is driving me mad. I can't seem to find it being answered before on this thread so here we go...

Ive had my marantz sr5600 reciever for about a year and I've had no issues with it until recently. I've recently moved house and since I've moved it drops video (hdmi) signal sporadically. When it does this, the audio still works fine, it's just the actual picture that goes away and my tv goes black and shows up as "no signal". I cant access the gui or anything. I haven't really found a fix to it as yet but the most reliable fix currently is when I unplug the hdmi cable and plug it back in again. I've never had this issue until recently and it's not the hdmi cable because I've tried different ones and it doesn't make a difference

Please someone help! Thanks in advance

I have had the same problem with my SR6006. I every case an HDMI cable was not properly seated. I did not have to remove the cable. I just pushed it back in.

The HDMI connector is poorly designed and it is easy for it to become loose in its socket if there is any tension on the cable.
post #1759 of 1955
Well this happens when I'm just sitting there watching TV. I could understand if I'm moving stuff around but if I'm nowhere near the back of the reciever and just siting on the couch?

Yes, it can. The weight of the cable or a twist in the cable can put strain on the connector and loosen it in the socket. The fact that you are losing video and not audio points to this.

You can try carefully aligning the cable and tying it to other cables to relieve possible strain.

roryb,

Make sure that "deep color" is disabled in your Blu-ray player. Turning it off reduces the HDMI data rate. Except for a few high-end camcorders, no video products available to consumers actually use deep color.

Video and/or audio dropouts are usually caused by degradation of high-bitrate signals by marginal cables and/or connections.

HDMI audio and video use the same pins. The audio is sent during the "vertical blanking interval" between video frames. In other words, the audio and video normally would be expected to drop out at the same time if the problem was caused by an intermittent physical cable connection. On the other hand, apparently independent HDMI video and audio dropouts often are caused by marginal signals, perhaps due to how the signal buffer memories are designed.

Hey all, I just got an SR6006 and I thought I saw it working a few days ago, but when watching TV on my projector connected HDMI, the source is a cable box HDMI, when I adjust the volume I don't get an on screen display of volume indication. Also, when I hit the surround button, I used to see the OSD now I see nothing. The sound changes but I have no idea what sound setting its on. Any ideas?
post #1763 of 1955
Also, when watching TV, I turn off the 6006 and video to the projector stops. My projector displays no signal? Thought this unit did pass-thru?

1. Try unplugging the AVR for a few minutes. Also if you recently turned on the HDMI-CEC feature of the PJ, then turn it OFF.
2. HDMI Control (p. 110 OM) must be set to ON and the Standby Source set to the appropriate HDMI source input for the pass through feature to work.
post #1765 of 1955
I've had my factory-refurbished Marantz SR 5006 with a 2.1 cambridge audio minx speaker setup for about 18 months and began having issues with it a month ago. The receiver would randomly turn it self off while in use, and the other night the receiver turned off in addition to a spark coming from the back of my right speaker. After that incident, the receiver would turn off immediately after being powered on. With the nearest authorized Marantz repair center in the next state over, I've taken my SR 5006 to a local repair shop. They told me that a couple output transistors had blown and would need to be replaced, in addition to my speaker being shorted. I had made no changes to my setup since I initially installed it, so I'm not sure where I went wrong. I'll be paying ~$250 to repair the receiver, and I'll be looking into repairing or replacing my minx min20 speaker. Any tips to help me ensure this doesn't happen again? My wife wasn't too happy with the cost of the setup initially, let alone these sudden repair costs...I don't know that I could afford to repair it again!
post #1766 of 1955

If you purchased the unit from an authorized reseller, the repair on the unit is covered under a 3 year warranty from Marantz so you would only be responsible for the roughly $30-$40 shipping charge. Regarding the issue at hand, did you check for loose speaker wires? Do you have any animals, kids, or a cleaning person that perhaps may have jostled the speaker wires? Are you using in-wall wiring at all?

Thanks JD!!! Your #2 helped fix the pass through issue. I am still having an issue with no OSD such as volume or surround mode showing while watching TV or a BluRay. I have a pretty good quality HDMI cable running to the projector @ 25ft, but the cable box and BD player HDMI cables are cheaper cables that came with the cable boxes from the cable provider (both labeled high speed with ethernet). Could it be possible that these cables can cause this? Should I get some short 3ft high quality cables or is this a setting I am missing?

I called Marantz support and he said I won't see volume overlay unless I switch convert video to on?
post #1769 of 1955
Correct. Although this should be set to ON as the factory default for every source so not sure why it would have been set to OFF.

Turning convert to on fixed the overlay. I'm sure this was me turning it off thinking I didn't want the receiver to degrade video quality along the path.
