Be sure to review the Audyssey 101/FAQ Guide linked in my sig as well to get the most out of Audyssey to include using either a camera tripod or mic boom stand to support the Audyssey mic.

Does anyone know how to play music from an android phone through this receiver? Wired or wireless doesn't matter, I can't figure out how.

I need some help. Basically I have a Klipsch Quintet 5 + a Klipsch Sub 12 hooked to a Marantz NR1603, but will be returning it to get the SR5007. I assume the settings will be the same.

After running calibration my settings have been adjusted as follows:
LPF for LFE: 120 Hz

Front L: -1.5db
Center: -3.5db
Front R: -2.0db
Surround R: -0.5db
Surround L: -2.5 db
-Subwoofer: -12db

1. Does this sound about right? -12db seems a bit too low for the sub, have cranked it up to 2.5db+ Is this normal?
2.What really confuses me is the Dialogue level/Subwoofer level? Why have these as seperate when you can already set individual speaker levels? For example: I can set the Subwoofer level to 2.5+ db while in the individual speaker level I can have another value.

3. The audyssey thing said my speaker are ALL out of phase. checked and triple checked the wiring: plus to plus, minus to minus. Should I return the speakers back?

4. As someone new to Home theater, what would be the best way to calibrate my HT, it really seems like a lot of info at the same time.
post #607 of 912
Yes, settings should be very similar although you will be upgrading from Audyssey MultEQ on the 1603 to MultEQ XT on the 5007.

1. Although the speaker settings are normal, the sub gain is set too high on the sub and so must be lowered (eg. from 12 o'clock to 9 o'clock) and run Audyssey again until the final sub setting is closer to 0db than to -12db, Review the Audyssey 101/FAQ Guide linked in my sig for more information.

2. After running Audyssey, the AVR will set the "reference" levels, although you can then further adjust the sub/dialogue levels to suit your "preference."

3. As noted in the Owner's manual, as long as the speaker wire is confirmed wired correctly, ignore the phase errors.

4. Read through the Audyssey 101/FAQ Guide linked in my sig.

Great answers + the 101/faq really helped.

1.But the seperate dialogue/subwoofer still doesnt make any sense to me. So when i run the Audyssey it adjust the individual speaker level relative to each other to make them sound as equal as possible. And the seperate individual dialogue/sub allows me to tweak even more, but shouldnt this affect the sub/center in the individual speaker settings.

For example, if the seperate sub setting is set at -3.5 and I raise it to +2db, shouldnt it also raise the level for the sub in the speaker level for all individual speakers? (It was -4 and it also raises to +2b) When I raise the individual sub and center it doesnt affect the setting for the sub/center where all speakers levels can be adjusted. Why? What's the relation?

2.As for volume....every says that reference is 0 or 85db continious. But my my marantz receiver just shows 0 to 98. There is also an option for a minus to a plus number. What scale should i be looking at and at what number for the reference level. Currently it seems loud at about 80.
post #609 of 912
Thanks! Your answer + the faq makes alot of sense.

1.But what still unclear is the relation between the seperate sub/center settings in relation to the speaker levels which also includes settings for the sub/center.

I would have expected that in the individual sub setting, if its set -3.5db and I raise it to +2.5db, sub setting in the speaker level which was -4db would also raise to +2db. But it doesnt. How do these relate ti each other? Its kind of confusing having two separate sub settings and not knowing which is the "master".

2.I also read that referance is at 0 or like 85db continous. My marantz has a scale from 0 to 98 where 80 is about loud. Where is the reference in that scale. There is also a scale from minus to a plus number, should I use that? Whats the "reference" level on these two scales?

Hope someone can help. Really excited about this, but its really a lot of info, more than I thought.

1. After running Audyssey, each speaker is level set to a 75db test tone. These settings will remain in the Speakers-Audyssey Setup section until Audyssey is run again so you can more easily return to them if you should desire after tweaking. Any speaker/sub volume level changes you make after running Audyssey will be the new "active" settings which are then stored in the Speakers - Manual Setup section.

2. There are two volume scales that can be used. Which you use is based purely on personal preference, although the default was recently changed to the 0-98 scale likely because most owners simply don't care about knowing where the reference level is (ie. the 0db scale) but rather simply wanted to see a typical volume up/down scale. The default (as noted below) is the 0-98 scale of which the 80 would correspond to "reference" or a minimum of 85db actual up to 105db (peaks) depending on how the sound track is mixed. The other is the -79.5db to +18db scale of which the 0db would correspond to reference (85db-110db) and a setting of -20db would be -20db lower than reference. The latter is obviously much easier to use if knowing where the volume is set in reference to "reference" volume. Average listening volumes are generally 50-60/-30db to -20db (TV) and 60-75/-20db to -5db (Movies/Music) as "reference" level listening is generally way too loud for the average owner without a dedicated home theater room.. Note also that you generally NEVER want to raise the volume above reference (ie. 80/0db) as doing so can possibly damage either the AVR or the speakers.

Ok there two places to adjust the sub/center.

Location A: Audio> Subwoofer level/Dialogue level

Location B: Speaker>Manual setup>Levels

When i change something in Location A it doesnt change the values in Location B.
But in B it automatically changes the serting in A. Does this mean that the settingsbin B are the "master" settings?

It confusing to change the bass to 0db in location A and going to B and see for example -2.5db.
But the opposite syns the values to match the other. I really dont get it.

Dont worry about it. Location A will adjust and remember your sub setting for each input. I wouldnt want a global sub setting for all inputs anyway. I have my sub bumpped up a few db for 2 channel music and down to -1 db for bluray. Its just a way you can adjust your sub setting for different content on different inputs.

So if i want to bump my center or sub a bit, where should I do best in location A or B?

Ok my question is it says its not recommended to go past 0 to protect speakers/ equipment but is that the same when speakers are running thru a hi end pre power amp?

that depends on your speakers and amp. Only you can measure when they start clipping. The 0db rule is a general guideline to go by.

fair enough so clipping is that like distortion? Im running a rotel rb1582 power amp on my krix neuphonixs and a rotel rb1070 on my centre krix epicentrix

the rears krix Phoenixs are running off the amp tho.. should I get a power amp for them?

cheers

Correct .... distortion.

Hey guys. In the market for a new AVR to replace my glitchy POS Outlaw model 1070.
I am leaning toward a 5007 but have noticed that Denon appears to be clearing out the 3313 for 799 perhaps in prep for the new models.

Models I have considered: Onkyo 818, Integra 30.4 and 40.4, Marantz 5007/6007, Pioneer Elite SC61 or 65. You can see my budget lies between 800-1200.00.

Now a 3313 for 799 is a tasty tasty bargain that I was not ready to consider as I had mostly kept my eye on the best bang for the buck. A 5007 at 849.00 qualifies as much. I have or had a chance to grab a 30.4 for 719 but was not convinced with the features so I began focusing on the Marantz.

Any one know if Marantz will be dropping their prices as well in the near future?? Perhaps I can grab a 6007 for a 5007 price is my hope.
post #623 of 912
The new 2013 Marantz models 5008, 6008, and 7008 will be released on June 5th, however, you may also want to give the new Denon X4000 (replaces the 3313CI) a look as it uses the same Audyssey MultEQ XT32 found on the flagship 8801 and 4520CI. Give Craig a "call" for the best price by AVS.

post #624 of 912
Thats greatfor those looking for the sr5007 in the future as prices go down.

I just got my 5007 a few days ago, and had it working find until a few hours ago, all of sudden, the high volume's in a movie like explosions cause cracking in all of my speaker. This isnt even at loud volumes either.. i have it at about 40 and it still cracks. I am using it will 4 definitive pro monitors 1000 and definitive CS-8040 as my center. I had run audyssey when i first set the system up. I am running 5.1. Any ideas why its cracking on the high volumes like explosions and gun shots?

At a volume level of 40 you should barely be able to hear anything at all let alone any crackling. Try resetting the microprocessor (p. 154 OM).
