Marantz SR5007 Owner's Thread - Page 6

post #151 of 912
So, i installed the sr5007 and the tannoy mercury speakers! The sound is great but is have some strange phenomen. If I play internetbradio the sound is powerfull but as soon as I switch to the ps3 or the settopbox the volume is hardly half as strong and I have the idea that the 5.0 setting is not accurate. Meaning that i hear mostly all of the sound through the center speaker? Just curious if someones knows what might be wrong?
post #152 of 912
Have you run Audyssey yet? And did you reset the FL/FR speakers to SMALL/80Hz (as recommended) if they were set to LARGE?
post #153 of 912
has not worked for me either yet. :-(

no idea what is keeping it awake - I wonder if I have to manually power off Zone 3 that I have set on? haven't tried that.luojie

Hello jdsmoothie, i have not yet set them to small ad I do not use a subwoofer! I will try anyway and let you know!
post #155 of 912
Ah, yes .. you did say 5.0 so then they must remain as LARGE without a sub in the setup. You can use the "Source Level" setting (p. 119 OM) to level out the volume of each source such that all sources are the same volume at the same master volume setting. Note that 85%+ of all dialogue will come from the center speaker.

Hi all,
I'm a newbie to this group as recently purchasing a SR-5007. Am enjoying it after properly setting it up. I would like to know if possibility exists that I can download other apps for this Marantz? Thank you for all the info.

There are several Remote apps both from D&M as well as independent, although not all the independent ones work with the newer X007 models.

I too have a Panasonic Viera TC-P60ST50 TV. So right now my set is as follows:

Cable box ---> TV --- > Optical Toslink audio cable ----> Marantz SR5007 ---> Speakers.

I tried using the ARC function which is on HDMI 2. But for some reason the receiver will not pick it up. I searched the OM that came along with the receiver and found no special instructions on ARC.

Let me know if you find a solution. I am interested in sending the audio via HDMI just because HDMI > Toslink cable quality wise
post #159 of 912
Ok, i have a little more time now to give some feedback and questions related. Thanks upfront for any response, its really helpful.
I have a new SR5007 and connected my also new Tannoy Mercury speakers; two front floorstanding speakers, a center and two rear speakers. So that's a 5.0 configuration. Further I have my settopbox connected to the receiver with hdmi, and also my PS3 (which I also use as blu ray player) directly connected to the receiver with a hdmi cable. From the receiver I have a hdmi to my Panasonic plasma screen ( no ARC function). At last I connected the reciever to the internet with a cable.

After connecting all, i switched all on and did the Audessy set up, 6 positions. My first findings and questions:

1. The internet radio and streaming my music from my network is great, clear and powerfull sound. I think i like "direct mode' more then the ' stereo mode' but that is personal.
2. Switching to the TV, the video is no problem but the audio is.
- I need to have the volume on on my TV to get some sound from the speakers as well? i expect that the audio goes form the setopbox to the receiver and then to the speakers.....and that the volume on the TV can be switched off completely? But if I do so the throughput to the speakers is gone also?
- the volume is half as powerfull using the settopbox or using the internteradio? A little difference is ok I guess but this is really a lot?
3. The same goes for my PS3, the audio is half as powerfull compared to the internteradio and also the volume of the TV needs to be on to get any sound through the speakers!

Is it possible that I need to upgrade my hdmi cables? Maybe they are still 1.3 and I somehow need 1.4? Is there any other possibility of wrong setting? Maybe my TV does something strange, probably through the viera link? I just do not know where to start to make it better......

Finally, i try to get the remote app working through my Iphone..... But I have no clue on what to do... Is there a manual somewhere which clarifies the steps to be taken?

Hope someone can help.

For ARC to work, in addition to plugging the HDMI cable into the HDMI input on the TV labeled ARC, the TV's HDMI-CEC feature (VierraLink for Panasonic) must be set to ON and the TV speakers must be set to "external speakers". On the AVR the HDMI Control setting must be set to ON. However, note that when talking about only DD 5.1 using HDMI provides no better quality than using optical, and in fact, the HDMI(ARC) can only pass "stereo" while your current configuration using optical can pass DD 5.1, so you're getting the best quality audio now.

A. Just an FYI ..... Although using the Setup Wizard will only provide for 6 mic positions, Audyssey MultEQ XT is actually capable of 8 mic positions( ie. it's recommended to use the max number of positions available to provide more data to the Audyssey filters), although getting the extra mic positions can only be achieved using the Speakers - Audyssey Setup menu (p. 120 OM).

1. This is a personal preference issue, although note that DIRECT disables Audyssey.
2. With the cable box connected only to the AVR, there should be no audio going to the TV speakers.
3. There is no difference between HDMI 1.3 and HDMI 1.4 cables when audio is concerned. Rather you only need to ensure you are using "High Speed" cables if passing 1080p video. If you haven't already, try resetting the microprocessor and start the setup process again.

I've had an SR6007 for a few months now and like it so much I just ordered a 5007 for our great room- but I was wondering if any of you could tell me how to use that IR input ("flasher in?") on these receivers?

I already have a Cables to Go 40430 IR repeater with all equipment behind closed doors, and I could swear I read something that said you could use a cable to connect an IR repeater like this directly to the Marantz. Is that true? If so, is it a stereo 3.5mm cable or mono? Thanks everyone
post #163 of 912
Yup ... generally a mono cable will work although not every repeater will work. Give it a try.
post #164 of 912
I'm having some issues with Airplay working on my SR5007. I can very rarely get the receiver to show up as a device to receive Airplay (either from my PC or iPad). It only shows up as a target maybe 1 out of 10 times. However, it will typically show up as a DLNA client if I am trying to stream from Windows Media Player or a DLNA app on my Android phone. Also, it will ALWAYS access any of my media on my network if I go through the receiver's interface; so I know it is always getting a good network connection.

I have network standby turned on as well. I also have an SR6006 in a different room that always shows up either for airplay or DLNA streaming.

Any ideas what's causing the issue?

post #166 of 912
I recently purchased a 5007. I have it connected to 5.1 Klipsch, 2 floor speakers with dual 8" and 4" horns in the front as well as a center channel, with two bookshelves in the rear. Only two other components at this time as I'm just beginning my first "Real" system ever. My other components are a Sony Blue Ray player as well as a Sony 400 disk DVD changer all linked to a Toshiba 42"( upgrading later and evening this to a bedroom).
My question is with the receiver. Being new to all this Hi-TECH stuff I need help. After finally connecting the system and getting it set up I was trying to adjust bass, mid, treble and can't seem to find any adjustment settings. Is this due to my receiver being wired with HDMI? I had one guy tell me to hook it up to my tv old school style and it might work. I can't do might. What else can you guys recommend for me to add to my system and to ways to set it up? Sonos, Apple Tv etc. Oh, the only internet I have is currently borrowed WiFi from my neighbor.
As far as my use, I watch a lot of movies and listen to a lot of music. No video gaming.
post #167 of 912
BDub502,

Simple three-band bass/mid/treble tone controls are not available in modern hifi equipment. They were very crude adjustments provided in old analog hifi equipment for making the them sound better with relatively poor speakers in untreated listening rooms.

Modern digital receivers include multi-channel graphic or parametric equalizers which provide audio controls which are much more sophisticated than the simple three-band tone controls that you mention. You have to adjust them using the receiver's on-screen menu system. They don't have front-panel knobs. Information about the Marantz graphic equalizer is on page 110 of the SR5007's manual.

However, you should instead use the room equalization software provided by most modern digital receivers like the Marantz SR5007 (Marantz provides Audyssey). After you have calibrated the system using the included microphone, the sounds coming from the speakers will be sufficiently accurate that you don't need tone controls to make the audio sound the way the producers intended. Note that Audyssey is disabled when Graphic EQ is selected. See page 27 of the SR5007's manual for Audyssey calibration instructions.

For more information about Audyssey, see the FAQ and "Audyssey 101" documents in the Audyssey thread at http://www.avsforum.com/t/795421/official-audyssey-thread-faq-in-post-1
Its instructions are much more complete than what is provided in the receiver's manual.
post #168 of 912
Anybody use one of these receivers with an HTPC? If so, is there any delay or pause when Windows takes exclusive control of the device to bitstream? My dying Onkyo had about a 2 second pause -- very annoying.

This isn't any help, but I have the same problem. As well, the DD surround settings on downloaded movies from PS3 is off and I have to watch in stereo if I want to hear any dialogue.

@jssmoothie I have the same issue and set the TV speakers to "external" and Viera link is on, but it's as if Viera Link does not recognize the SR5007.
post #171 of 912
Did you set HDMI Control on the 5007 to ON as well? Once doing so. power off all devices and then power on the TV first and then a few seconds later the AVR. Note that if set correctly, the AVR will automatically change to the TV input a few seconds later regardless of what source you last selected on the AVR (which can be annoying and why some prefer to simply use an optical connection from the TV to the AVR instead of the ARC features).
post #172 of 912
Hi All, I just installed an SR5007 and connected a PS3 using HDMI. when I switch to the PS3 feed on the AVR I get "mode not supported" on the TV (Samsung). If I unplug the HDMI cable from the receiver and plug it directly into the TV I get the PS 3 Menus to appear. If I then start a blu-ray and then plug the PS3 into the AVR while the movie is playing it will appear on screen and both sound and video are perfect. If I stop the movie the AVR will not show any of the PS3 menus. I have tried a few different HDMI cables but can not get the AVR to display the PS3 menuing - only the movie once it has been started, which as you can imagine is a huge pain.

Any ideas on what is causing this would be greatly appreciated

Thnaks

Try setting "Deep Color Output" on the PS3 to OFF.

Just a purchased the SR5007 today from HiDef Lifestyle. I hope to have it by the end of the week since my Denon 2807 went to a new owner today. Very excited to complete the system and get it hooked up with the new Oppo BDP and VT50.

I just placed my order for my 5007 tonight. should be setting it up this next weekend.

Just in case somebody else wanted to know the same thing (above)- I can verify a 3.5mm MONO male to male cable from that Cables to Go 40430 IR repeater to the Marantz "Flasher In" works great. Thanks for all the help in the Marantz forums jdsmoothie. John

Network Reset

When having network connection issues, after resetting the router as well as powering off the AVR for a few minutes, if still no joy, then you may want to try doing a "Network Reset" ... similar to a Microprocessor reset except press/hold the [Preset Channel +] and [Preset Channel -] buttons on the front panel of the AVR instead while powering the unit ON. This procedure will reset the network card as well as perform a microprocessor reset in the process so ensure to SAVE the config. dat file to a PC using the Web Control function (pp. 93-94) prior to doing the reset so you can more easily return to your old settings by LOADing the config.dat file back to the AVR (includes Audyssey settings).

Can somebody tell me if the SR-5007 should tell me which surround sound mode it's decoding in the display.....without having to push the Status button on the front?


I just always like a quick visual to make sure that my movies are going Dolby Digital or DTS as expected.




Also, I'm working on getting the HDMI passthrough enabled. It seems in order to do this, I have to turn on HDMI control and then set which HDMI input to pass through. I guess this means that I can only pass through 1 source...without turning on the AV receiver?

I'm connecting my cable box directly via HDMI to my TV. I'm connecting my PS3/BluRay via HDMI to the receiver. I want the PS3 to auto pass through, because my kids often use the PS3 to watch netflix videos and such and they don't need the home theater on to do this. However, I also have a new Wii-U and that connects via HDMI as well and I would like to be able to use that as well without having to run the AV receiver...but I have a sneaking suspicion that I am going to have to connect the Wii-U direct to the TV as well in order to get that to work in this manner.
