Marantz SR5007 Owner's Thread - Page 15

post #421 of 912
Does upping the input source level actually boost in the incoming signal, or does it just increase the output volume while keeping the "volume," constant?

I have my DVD set to +2 and I am curious if that actually amplifies the input before the output or if the receiver is actually just shifting the scale, i.e. 65 becomes 57.5 (or something similar).
post #422 of 912
The latter as your max master volume level for that source will be reduced.

I do have one question, in the marantz sr5007 reciever, i set up all of the individual crossovers to match my speakers. What should i set my LPF in the AVR to? It defaults to 120, my highest cross over on my speakers is 100. I set it to 100, is that ok or should i leave it at 120? Thx. Almost forgot, I have a bravus 2 8d sub.
post #424 of 912
Disregard the settings suggested by the speaker mfr, rather the whole purpose of using Audyssey is to configure your speakers based on how the speakers/sub react in your home environment (not based on some anechoic chamber testing facility). Review the Audyssey 101/FAQ Guide linked in my sig for more helpful information, but generally after running Audyssey, raise any settings UP to 80Hz that were set below that and leave any settings > 80Hz alone. The LPF for LFE should be left at the default of t20Hz as it only applies to the LFE channel (0.1 in 5.1) and therefore does not impact the speakers at all.

Ok, thank you. I set the lpf back to 120 and changed my others to 80 in the front. My l/r rear crossover was correct at 100. My center rear was set at 200. Should i adjust that.? 200sounds way to hi to me...I did do the 8 meas. points for audessey, sounds pretty good to me! I measure with my spl app and the levels were close. The fronts both show 73 at reference of 0db and the center was 71. The rears were a bit mixed. Left rear was 73, ctr rear was 71, and right rear was 72. Should I just trust that Aud mic is better than app? Thank you! Also, i will check out the faq!
post #426 of 912
There is likely a positioning issue with your center speaker for it to be set so high. If it's set in a cabinet, pull it out to the edge and ensure it's aimed up towards your ear height (ie. where the mic should be positioned on either a tripod or mic boom stand when doing the calibration). Also the Audyssey mic is likely more accurate than your phone app, although still has an error rate of +/-2db.
post #427 of 912
My rear center is wall mounted and is pointing at listener, but it is under a shelf mounted projector. Could that be the issue? I just set it at 120. It is a small yamaha nsp 436 satellite speaker. The rest of my 6.1 setup is all Aperion 5b, 5c, 4b, bravus sub. Is it worth keeping the yamaha in the mix or could it be messing with the acoustics too much?
post #428 of 912
Ah, missed the "rear" part so the 200Hz is likely correct. Set it back to 200Hz as setting it below that serves no purpose considering it has only been EQ'd to 200Hz.

Ah, yes. I just reset it and the acoustics popped back in! Was sounding to bass-y. Much better! Thanks again
post #430 of 912
Another question: when i adjust a setting, say in music mode on bluray ( increase reference level to +10db in audio/audyssey and adjust the sub output) is that saved so that in the future when I select it, it will be the same? Or does it affect all of the modes movie, music, game the same requiring me to change it every time? Thx
post #431 of 912
Those settings should be saved for whatever source audio is being received from the BDP.
post #432 of 912
Hi all -

Great to see fellow Marantz 5007 owners in AVS. I had a quick question in regards to Audyssey MultiEq XT. So I did a quick calibration run, but noticed for the Marantz, that there is no option at the beginning of Audyssey to set the sub at 75 db. But on the Onkyo, there Audyssey MultiEq XT requires at the start of Audyssey calibration to set the subwoofer at 75 db. Am I missing something or forgetting to do something in my Marantz to have this option? Or is this just not present for the Marantz's version of MultiEq XT? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Cheers all!
post #433 of 912
It's not an option on Denon and Marantz units with MultEQ or MultEQ XT, rather you can set the sub volume/gain knob to about 9 o'clock and then run Audyssey for just 1 position. As long as it isn't set to -12db but more ideally closer to 0db, you're good to go and can run the remaining 7 mic positions, otherwise, adjust the sub gain/volume knob a bit lower and run again for 1 mic position only until it is closer to 0db.

Ok, so the setting will remain the same based on the source, but not the soundfield selection of movie, music, or game. That stinks! I will have to change it everytime? Bummer!
post #435 of 912
No, it should be saved as I indicated. smile.gif
post #436 of 912
Ah, i see. Sry, misunderstood. So if dts hd mstr audio in input in bdp and I adjust the settings as I indicated before, that setting will remain and be applied irregardless of whether movie, music or game was selected. Is that right?
post #437 of 912
These are independent surround modes so a change in one should not be saved in the other.
post #438 of 912
Ok thx!
post #439 of 912
Still having issues with watching tv over hdmi via projector with seperate audio source. I got it to work with my 7.1 mch inputs for sacd player but when I selected analog, which is where my turntable is plugged into( on the cd input) , i get nada. Why is that? Does analog refer to something else on the input select screen? I tried to run component and hdmi from my cable box, but it will only do one or the other and will not,output both. i guess I could ditch the hdmi from the cable box, but if the analog in is for coax, wont my results be the same? I also tried selecting the turntable and then changing the video source, but got the same result. I am getting frustrated because this is something I have not had an issue with in the past with yamaha. Any thoughts or ideas? Thx!

Hi there,

Not sure what I've done. I started having issues with my network. I couldn't get it connected to the internet for airplay and other purposes. While going through the different settings, I must've changed something, now I don't have sound. I went over every setting, but I find it confusing. I would prefer to reset to factory settings and start again, but I'm having a hard time finding a solution. Is there a tutorial for common settings for my AV?

I apologize if this's been asked before, I've searched and I couldn't find the answer.

Thanks,
Alex
post #441 of 912
If you use the Web Control feature (p. 93 OM), you can SAVE the config file (to include Audyssey) to a PC and then reload it after resetting the AVR. Try simply unplugging the unit for 10 minutes and see if that resolves the issue.
post #442 of 912
I am just about to pull the trigger and by the SR5007 but have one last question that I can't find an answer to. I'd like to have the SR5007 to display to two TVs simultaneously, one through the HDMI out and one through the Component out. Does anyone know if the video signal is sent to both?
post #443 of 912
You'll need separate analog video inputs.

HDMI video is not allowed to be transcoded to analog video. Your source devices will have to provide analog video (composite or component) to the receiver in order for the receiver's analog video outputs to be active.

Even more annoying is that current generation Blu-ray players are not allowed to have analog video outputs.
post #444 of 912
Thanks. I was afraid that would be the answer.

Consider using a 1:2 HDMI splitter with an HDMI--> component converter.

Ok, finally got this to work. Had my blue and green componet cables swapprd on the input from my cable box. damn u color blindness! Once resolved, it is working out great. Albeit, its not hdmi when listening to tunes, but it is upconverted to 1080 p😊! Loks and sounds great now. Really loving it...
post #447 of 912
Thanks for posting back with the solution. As Homer would say ..... DOH! smile.gif
post #448 of 912
Haha- so true! Felt like a complete dolt once I finally got the maglite on it. Flipped it around an good to Doh!
post #449 of 912
Hey guys,

I posted last week about my home audio set-up and now I am ready to hook it up, but am confused.

My Klipsch WF-35's have four posts on the back, and I am confused on how to install.

1. Should I bi-wire? Do i have to use all four binding posts?
2. If yes, How do I do that?
2. Lets' say I choose not to - which set of binding posts do I use? Top or bottom?
4. And do I remove the piece of metal that is siting underneath the posts?

I realize this is super-newb questions...I apologize in advance.

Thanks!
post #450 of 912
It shouldn't matter which set of posts you use as long as the metal jumper is connecting both sets together. As neither "bi-wiring" nor "bi-amping" would likely prove of any benefit, leaving the jumper in place and connecting to only one set is the recommended configuration.
