Marantz AV7701 Prepro Official Owner's thread - Page 16

post #451 of 650
Hey not really a reply but a new question.
trying to get my marantz remote to control my priojector.
Optima HD33 does any one know ir codes or a way to get remote to find them?
post #452 of 650
If the code isn't listed in the back of the 7701 Owner's manual, it likely is not capable of controlling the PJ. Consider going to remotecentral.com for more info or better yet, purchasing a Harmony remote.

How often do you use your AV7701?
I use mine 2-3 days a week for a few hours at a time, 90 % music and 10% movies. I listen to a lot of 2 channel music in multi channel stereo mode. I've had mine almost a year now and pleased with it. Has been reliable.

Not familiar with it, but there might be others that can chime in, although you also may want to post your question in the Rotel Owner's thread ....

I don't have a 1575 but my rotel rmb 1095 that I bought new in 2002.  really happy with the rotel amp and the 7701.  alos have some pretty nice aerial speakers, martin logan sub and transparent cables so the whole system works really well.

 

i really appreciate how well the 7701 works with a good sub .. the bass shakes the house but is not boomy

Hello everyone! I'm having a sound problem with my AV7701. I am using a Emotiva XPA-5 Amp with Belden balanced cables from Bluejeans. I have a 2.1 setup with B&W CM9s and a SVS subwoofer. The Right channel on my receiver keeps turning in and out in a lower volume as if it's losing connection somewhere. Then all of a sudden for no reason I will get full volume through both speakers. This varies as to when it will happen as well. I've checked all my cables from the speakers to the amp as well as trying different balanced cables. At first I thought it was the Amp but I've narrowed it down to the receiver being the culprit.

Has anyone experienced this problem? Except for my sub not working before the initial update was applied when I first got my amp this setup has been a joy.

Try doing a microprocessor reset (p. 173 OM) after using the Web Control feature to save the Audyssey config to a PC file.

Hello - wondering on any comparisons of audio DACs of 7701 compared to those in Oppo 105 BluRay player. I couldn't find the info on the Oppo site, sorry. Want to see if the sound quality and musicality of the much-vaunted Oppo analog outs are worth the extra cost vs. the 103 player. Or if the DACs in the 7701 are equally great-sounding units and stay with normal HDMI connections for both video and audio. Thanks!
post #461 of 650
I did the microprocessor reset and the problem is still there. I'm not sure what is causing the problem other then it being related to my receiver. I have tested with three different types of balanced cables as well.

It's not so much that DACs that will be the determining factor as much as whether you prefer to have Audyssey enabled (ie. via HDMI) or not enabled (multi analog).

If you've confirmed the issue is not a result of the speakers themselves, you're likely looking at repair of the AVR.

I am new to the 7701, but the Audyssey set up provided a lot of information about the speakers. I would try running Audyssey again. I have also found the telephone support at Marantz to be excellent.
post #465 of 650
Thanks, yes I will give Marantz a call directly today. I have tried running audyssey again a few times to no solution. :/

Hi, is it only me that have problems with the android AP?
I'm using a Galaxy S II from Samsung and when i try to see my media server on it it shows just a blank screen. But I can see the server on my PC and directly on my 7701 or my TV.
post #467 of 650
Thanks for reply - I would want to use the multi-analog outputs from the Oppo 105 for the audio channels and I believe HDMI for the video only. Just trying to determine from everyone's experiences if the sound quality doing it this way is high enough to justify the higher 105 cost.
post #468 of 650
^^
Of the posts I have read, most owners who have posted of demoing both ways say there is a slight edge going HDMI as that allows you to enable Audyssey. If not using Audyssey, then the nod would go to the multi analog inputs.
post #469 of 650
Thanks- will have to try it both ways and see!
post #470 of 650
I am interested in purchasing a 7701 but the volume readouts in the porthole and lower display both appear to be too small to read from my listening chair 12 feet away.

Do photos of the 7701 make the lower (and larger) volume digits look smaller than they really are and can owners here read them at 12 feet away?

Thank you!
post #471 of 650
My seat is 17 feet away, The top porthole is tough to make out from that distance but the lower display is pretty big and I have no issues seeing the volume from my seat. If you are using HDMI the volume is also displayed on the TV as well.

Has anyone had luck with bi-amping or wiring this unit? The 7005 was super easy but for some reason I can't find the menu to select this option.

Thanks

The 7701 does not directly support bi-amping. The easiest way to do it probably would be to use T connectors or Y cable adapters to connect the front left and right RCAs to pairs of amps. (Or RCA to one and XLR to another.) Of course, you're very unlikely to be able to hear any difference in audio quality when comparing bi-amping to using a single amp for each speaker.

FWIW, the 8801 does include bi-amp settings.

Are you referring to the AV7005 or the SR7005 as the pre-pro models do not have the "Bi-amp" feature as the pre-outs only pass the default signal assigned to each output?
post #475 of 650
Additional Features
Amplifier assignment for 7.2 ch (SB ch), 5.2 ch + Front Height, 5.2 ch + Front Wide, 5.2 ch + Bi-Amp, 5.2 ch + zone, or 5.2 ch + Front B

Found here

AV7005
It's in the menu system under amplifier or something similar.


I spoke to someone at Marantz today and he's thinking that they did away with it on the 7701.
I demo'd an 8801 and I couldn't find any mention of it in the menu system like the AV7005 that was on loan for one night, the constant hum from that unit was awful.
post #477 of 650
Ah .. yes, the "Spkr C" setting. Correct, this is no longer offered on either the 7701 or 8801.
post #478 of 650
Oh well, less wire less hassle I suppose lol

Thanks for the info smile.gif
post #479 of 650
I posted this in the main forum but meant to post it here so...

Just picked up a Marantz AV7701 today. Was the owner of an AV8003.

When going into the Graphic EQ settings I only have the ability to modify the frequency settings for Front L and Front R speakers. With the AV8003 I could modify the settings for all speakers. Is there a way to enable this for all speakers or is this a bug, or by design?

Thanks
post #480 of 650
As noted by the image below, the default option is to adjust L/R speaker "pairs" or you can adjust each speaker individually (no sub though). Note however that by doing so you disable Audyssey.
