I am not sure if this is right. He said he had a Rel T5 which has the Neutric (sp?) connector and allows the LFE to be set independantly from the speaker level connections. So, you tune the speaker level based on making a perfect match with your L/R fronts using the Sub's filters before using Audyssey. Then you set the LFEs based on the Rx settings (i.e. Audyssey setup).

Rel states that you want to set the speakers to large no matter what size they are because the sub is going to use the full range of that signal.

Here's the rub ... (and why in virtually every instance with a dedicated sub using either MultEQ or MultEQ XT the SMALL/80Hz setting is recommended for the FL/FR speakers) there are more sub EQ filters than speaker EQ filters so you're doing yourself a disservice by setting the front mains to LARGE when using Audyssey MultEQ or MultEQ XT (on the 7007) rather you are likely much better served not using the Neutric connector and setting the FL/FR speakers to SMALL/80Hz. This not only takes advantage of the additional EQ filters, but also provides more headroom to the AVR for your setup as the dedicated sub takes on the load of the lower frequencies < 80Hz. In the end, it's your setuup, try it both ways and choose the way you prefer. smile.gif

I did discover that the "Dialog Level" (center channel level) control is "global" rather than applying to a particular input (in this case, pcm coax digital) for my Pro Logic Laserdisc playback. I wonder if I should try the "Pure" audio setting on the remote and see what that does? The manual seems to indicate that the Pure setting will allow the receiver to select the proper mode, automatically. Comments?

So what is the main difference between this av receiver and the av8801?
post #514 of 862
The AV8801 is an 11.2 channel preamp/processor with Audyssey XT32 and no amps.
The SR7007 is a 7.1 channel receiver with Audyssey XT and 7 amps.

i.e. the 7007 lets you have active only one (pair) of surround back, surround wide or front height speakers, while the 8801 lets you have all of them active at the same time. The 8801 also has a superior version of Audyssey, including support for two subwoofers.

I thought ours was 7.2
post #516 of 862
The 7007/7701 and lower Marantz models simpy use an internal "Y" RCA splitter while the 8801 uses Sub EQ HT to separately level match dual subs.

The "PURE" mode disables Audyssey and bass management and is therefore not recommended.

OK, so is there any other option other than manually adjusting center channel? I've really only encountered this problem on my two "Indiana Jones" LDs so far, which are encoded with
Dolby Surround on the PCM digital track. It would appear that they just mixed it that way.
post #519 of 862
Very likely the case.

Hi all, i am currently listening to music via the marantz amp into audio technica 1000x headphones. When i listen to anything then stop for say a minute then volume increases when i press play on the next tune. Does anyone know if there is a way of setting a default volume level for the start of listening. thanks
post #521 of 862
The volume should not increase from stop to start again. Try unplugging the AVR for a few minutes and see if that resolves the issue.
post #522 of 862
Hi all,

New guy but have been reading a lot of your posts/threads before the arrival of my SR7007, so many thanks for all the head's up re getting it up and running without having to bother you guys......however.............

Have noticed one annoying issue when trying to connect my Blu Ray via the receiver. For some reason it keeps coming up with invalid format on the TV but when you connect via the DVD connection it's perfectly fine. Am using the following connections:

Blu ray to Amp (HDMI socket 3 - blu ray) then Amp to TV via Monitor 1 out. Both HDMI cables. Don't understand why it works okay with DVD socket but not Blu ray. Any pointers would be much appreciated. Am hoping it's just a "new to Marantz receiver" issue

Cheers

Jon.

Check to see if the Blu Ray player has a "Deep Color Output" setting and if yes then set it to OFF, otherwise, historically some inputs will work with some devices and not others as a matter of course. However, note the HMDI inputs are assignable (p. 126 OM) so you can "assign" HDMI2 to the Blu Ray source name if desired.

Thank you, JDSmoothie for the reply. I just went through the whole thread again and spotted the Deep Colour comment on page 8 (I think) but thanks for mentioning it. Will try that and also change round the assignment of the DVD / Blu Ray (3 to 2 etc).

I was initially worried it might be something to do with this HDCP thing I read about in other threads. This is going to sound really silly but am guessing it makes no difference in terms of quality whether it's HDMI 1 or HDMI 3, as the input. As in the allotted Blu Ray input has a better signal path etc because of higher signal/bit rate/qualtiy it would receiver over a DVD source?

Many thanks.
post #525 of 862
No, quality shouldn't matter, rather only it will work or it won't work.
post #526 of 862
Thanks, i will give that a go.
post #527 of 862
Unplugging made no difference
post #528 of 862
The only other volume setting would be the "Power On Volume" setting (p. 140 OM).

Hi ..i'm looking to buy a new receiver this weekend to pair with b&w speakers F(684) C(htm62) R(686) , i got my eyes on yamaha rxa2020 and marantz sr7007 any advice on which to buy would be appreciated. Thanks
post #530 of 862
Neither .... considering the new Denon X4000 is less expensive than either one and uses the more advanced Audyssey MultEQ XT32.
post #531 of 862
ohhh wow i did not know about this new AVR-X4000 will look into it. thanks

I have never attempted what you're asking but I have noticed there are two small screws beneath the door flap.


The display behind the door has a lot more useful info than what is displayed on the on screen GUI. Since the depth of the AVR is deep enough that I can't have the cabinet door closed with the AVR's door open, I would like to have it removed.

Or as an alternative, how do you get all of this info on the on screen display?

(Excuse me. I started a new thread. Then I discovered this long owner's one, so this is a double posting.)

Hi, this is my first thread. I bought a Marantz SR7007 receiver and an Marantz UD7007 Bluray Player some time ago--and I have a problem.
I my living room, I have a 5.1 system plus two small wide speakers connected to their dedicated output.
For Zone 2 (kitchen) I have cables connected to the Surround Back outputs, which somehow are programable for use such as this. But it doesn't work that way.
From the not so easy to understand manual (English is not my first language) I gather that you can't use the wide speakers and zone 2 simultaneously. I f zone 2 is used, the receiver automatically converts the main zone to 5.1. Or am I wrong? Is this set-up impossible? Do I have to chose between the wide speakers and the kitchen speakers?

If it's possible to combine all this as I want to, could anybody tell me how I can tell the receiver to do as I demand. Every time I have done the set-up, I end up with a two speaker system in the main zone with a lot of other silent speakers.
Thanks in advance,
Jan, Sweden
post #535 of 862
The 7007 is only a 7CH AVR so that means if you have a 5.1 setup in the main zone, you have only 2CH remaining to power EITHER the Front Wide OR the Zone 2 but not both as that would require a 9.1 AVR. If you want both FW and Zone 2, you would need to connect another AVR or 2CH amp to the Zone 2 pre-outs on the 7007 and then connect the Zone 2 speakers to that external amp.

Hi all,

Back again. I am banging my head against the wall re Airplay. I can't get my Itunes (most recent version) nor my iPhone 4 to show the airplay box, so I can play music via the phone etc. The computer and SR7007 are all connected to the network via a Sitecom router and I've even disabled all firewalls for a short period and nothing.

I've looked on the net, this forum and I can't find anything which helps. Internet radio and managing the receiver from the computer all work fine, so they're definitely communicating. Just can't get airplay to work.

Any ideas / suggestions are very very very welcome.

Many thanks

Jon.

Hi....

Further to above I've managed to get airplay working on iTunes by changing the UnPn settings on my router but unfortunately still can't get it to work on the iPhone. Any suggestions?

Cheers

Re: zone 2. According to another source, it is possible to set up according to my preferences if I also have an analogue connection between the BR-player and the receiver. But I can't use wide speakers and zone 2 at the same time. I haven't been able to test this yet.

Hi Marantz sr7007 owners,

I want to buy a marantz sr7007 but i have 5 audio psysics yarra evolution 20-120watt 4 ohm speakers.
Should this be a problem for the sr7007?
