Hi all happy marantz owners. Me myself upgraded from sr6007 to sr7007. I am verry happy with it.
I have discovered some faults in the dolby digital plus decoding on all x007 models. At some frequencies the sound crackles. There aren't that many sources that uses dd+, but netflix(through ps3) is one of them(at least here in Sweden). I have uploaded a recording of the symptom(http://karpestam.se/i_love_you_phillip_morris.mp4
), the recording is with 6007 but same fault occurs on 7007. If you don't have a ps3 with netflix you can download a sample file: http://download.dolby.com/Content_Download/channelcheck-large.mp4
Just make sure the receiver is doing the decoding(the dolby digital plus indicator should be shown).
Please comment and share your results. I have tried to contact marantz regarding this but I can't contact them directly from Sweden. I must go through the reseller but it doesn't happen much...
To me it seems like a software bug...
Regarding the channel check clip. Listen when the sounds go through the center speaker, you will hear that it get some interrupts, on other receivers the sound is constant.
