Well this IS the remote for the 7701 - not the remote for the 6007, they shipped me the wrong one. Does the AVR have to match the remote to use the remotes advanced capabilities? or since I've got the 7701 remote can It use the extra functions regardless of the avr? I've got a Harmony 680 remote in any case. Thanks for the info in advance jd!!..
as I was typing this I just realized this remote is backlit - it's got a button on the side for that. Clearly it's a better remote then the stock 6007.. so at least the mistake was made in my favour.
PS - Will having the M-DAX set to on harm my FLAC music files being played back at all? I have a mix of mp3's and FLAC .. and wonder if I need to turn it on and off when I switch between the two?
PPS - Wondering why, as this is said to have multieq XT - I was only able to measure 6 mic positions during setup? I called Marantz, and was told by a tech ( who didn't seem to know what he was talking about, he left the phone to consult for a while ) that there should be 8 positions because that's what the website says, and to do a factory reset and test again. I did, and I did, still only six mic positions available. It clearly says MultiEQ XT during the set up process. I'm wondering if 1. He's wrong and it only HAS 6, or 2. as this is a refurb - this is why it was sent back in the first place and some unknowing tech just though " nah it sounds great " and released it back?
UPDATE: .. I found out from another forum that for some reason Auddessey will only measure 6 positions when run through the setup menu ( the one that appears automatically ) - You've got to manually run the program through settings to get the 8 positions. While I think that's totally irritating ( as I didn't see any documentation to that effect ) I'm glad the receiver isn't bricked. I'm gonna call and let the Marantz guy know so he can give proper advice the next time.
Thanks - you guys are the best!Edited by Sean Spamilton - 7/16/13 at 10:28am
