Hm, I've tried the Mog app on my Mac, as well as on my iPad, but neither can see the SR5006 as Airplay speakers on the same network.

Are you actually able to do it?

Don't know about iPad but if you download the Mac app it sees my sr-6006 and works great for me .

Great news How is your network link between the mac and the receiver (cable, wifi, or do you use Airport)?

I am trying to figure out what the issue is, because iTunes can see the SR5006 from the HTPC (Windows 7, there is no app for Windows yet) which is hooked up to the same router (Cisco, not Airport) as the SR5006 through ethernet cable. But my iMac, which is on the same WiFi network, does not see the SR5006, nor does the iPad (same wifi network).

Not sure I have turned it on - will check when I get home. Does it need to be on, even though I am using the MOG app to stream and not using iTunes at all?

This setting sends the front mains low frequencies (below the crossover setting) to the sub. So in addition to the sub getting the LFE (0.1) it also gets the low bass from the front mains ===> double bass. However, when listening to stereo 2.0 audio (eg CD) there is no LFE so the sub won't sound with the front mains set to LARGE, which is why the LFE+Main setting is required if you want the sub to sound. When all speakers are set to SMALL (as Audyssey suggests), then the LFE and LFE+Main settings provide the same result (ie. LFE+Main).

I still do not understand completely:
What I do not want is a double bass from 5.1 sources, then I want just the LFE go to the sub, nothing more. This is because I can't believe that exactly the same signal can be played from different speakertypes, at much different locations (my sub is located behind a couch).
However, with the setting 'LFE' the sub isn't used with (analog) stereo at all, and I think -providing the source has information below 80 Hz- using a sub would give a better result.
(Marantz SR5006)

My question: If I have set my speakers to small (80Hz), and the sub setting to LFE+MAIN, will 5.1 sources not play double bass, and will analog stereo use the sub (below the cross over setting)?

With ALL speakers set to SMALL ... the sub settings of LFE and LFE+Main produce the same result ...ie. all frequencies below a speaker's crossover is passed to the sub. The setting of LFE+Main only means something when the front mains are set to LARGE. Your current configuration will get you your desired result.

jdsmoothie: thanks!
(Your 17,200 posts (!) convinces me. However, being a 'Thomas' I will try the settings out, and compare them by listening)

Thanks, it turned out that the firewall on my router was blocking Airplay.

The good news is, Airplay works great and MOG is by far the best music streaming service I know of (huge selection of full albums, virtually all at 360kbps, and ingenious Radio implementation) -- I just dumped Pandora.

Airplay works in Zone 2, bypassing the digital input limitation.

Also, if your music is on a server, the SR5006/6006 will see it and it will play it in Zone 2 without a problem. Which means that I can play my lossless music rips to Zone 2 straight from the digital source (again, bypassing the Zone 2 digital input limitation).

Sweet, although the Marantz UI is rather primitive -- which may be irrelevant, since I have the feeling MOG's high quality streaming will make my locally stored music collection obsolete for all practical purposes, and I can control MOG from my iPad.

Although Denon and Marantz models are now clones for the most part of each other, a Denon feature apparently not offered by Marantz is the ability to have dedicated STEREO mode settings which is where folks get into trouble on this issue as the default STEREO mode settings are LARGE and sub set to LFE, so there is nothing going to the sub with 2.0 audio unless the sub setting is changed to LFE+Main or the speakers are reset to SMALL.

All,

How can I tell by looking in the port hole when DTS or TrueHD or anything is being played?
post #253 of 1955
"Although Denon and Marantz models are now clones for the most part of each other"

Is this true specifically regarding the SOUND QUALITY of Denon vs Marantz?

That stereo mode of Denon is most attractive to me since my main speakers are quite adequate for bass for music, but i want to use the sub for movies. I love the sound of my older Marantz, but when upgrading I don't want to lose any sound quality.

Is their a rack mount kit for the 6006?
post #255 of 1955
Greetings,

I recently bought an SR5006 and love it. Only thing I've been stumped with is Airplay. I've got the SR5006, am running win7 on my desktop and have an ASUS RT-N16 router. the SR5006 is connected via ethernet. I can see the SR5006 in my network in windows 7 and access it. I can access other media on my win7 PC from the SR5006, so obviously the connection to the PC is fine. But for the life of me I can't get itunes to see the SR5006 and give me the airplay button.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Most likely it's your router's firewall settings. I had a similar problem and changing the setting on my Cisco router fixed it.

Now I can stream digital content to Zone 2, plus the added benefit of being able to view and control my whole iTunes library (had to switch from VMC) through iTunes Remote for the iPad, as well as stream MOG through Zone 2, also from the iPad.

It's actually brilliant

Are you able to stream to Zone 2 when Zone 1 off? Each time I try and turn off Zone 1, the AirPlay stops in Zone 2.

From my iPad, I can stream to Zone 2, with Zone 1 turned off. I've tried it with both the MOG app and with the iTunes Remote app.

In fact, I started turning Zone 1 off, because for some reason new song selections in the MOG app push the volume in Zone 1 up automatically, and it blasts my TV room.

Make sure you select NET/USB for Zone 2 before you place the receiver in standby (and thus turn the sound in Zone 1 off).

Excellent question. My understanding is that Marantz is sharing much of their video and audio processing designs and components with Denon. Where Marantz attempts differentiation is in their amplification circuitry and feature sets.

Whether this makes an audible difference is up for debate. I intend to find out soon.
post #260 of 1955
I was comparing between SR6005 and SR6006 and noticed that marantz has changed the Digital Signal Processing from SHARC 32bit TO SP21487/400mhz. Does anyone knows what that does to sound quality? Do the new 06 receivers have the same warm sound as previous versions?
post #261 of 1955
hello guys, i am a little lost in the volume settings. i managed to set a starting volume for the receiver, but still when i use itunes airplay via network standby it always starts with a really loud volume. the neigbors are not happy when i turn it on in the night... where is the setup for that?
post #262 of 1955
^^^

in the itunes server itself... turn the volume down there before starting the stream...

itunes "sees" the airplay client on an avr as a speaker, and applies it's volume control to the client... after you start it, you then have control over the volume with the client (i.e. the avr)...
post #263 of 1955
so just have the itunes volume always at zero?... thanks, it wont be easy though...
post #264 of 1955
^^^

doesn't have to be at zero... just at a "reasonable" level...

note that the itunes server will maintain different volume levels dependent on "where you are sending the output"...
post #265 of 1955
i put it around 10% and its okay now, thanks.
another question, is it possible to put the whole computer's audio output to the receiver via airplay? for example the sound of youtube, or a movie, etc.
post #266 of 1955
Try using Airfoil.

I'm also wondering how they compare...
post #268 of 1955
As i said earlier, i only have the denon 2807 to compare with, but oh my god this 6006 plays gooood and loud
The trainscene in Super 8 almost made a turtleneck poking out , the whole system is just 2 maybe 3 times (how da crap do u describe it?) better and fills the room with sound. The subwofer is graded -12 by the audessy and still the couch jumps up and down.
The airplay works great with spotify from my iphone.
Extremly surprised by this big difference and a very very happy owner.
I have a hard time believing you can go wrong with this unless you are a hardcore soundnerd. I use it in my livingroom with a 5.1 tannoy/jamo system.
Happy halloween you freaks

As the AVR set the sub to -12db, you'll want to lower the sub gain/volume knob a bit and then rerun AUTO SETUP again.

Yep, if your sub level is at -12 you need to turn the volume down on your subwoofer and run Audyssey again.
