Official Sherbourn PT-7030 Thread - Page 12

post #331 of 338
Miccar ; as JVOTH has mentioned you can switch either in the pre pro or tv . Ile just mention if you want to utilise the 7030's parametric equalisation in the future [ either yourself with REW and a calibrated mike like a umic or pay for a room calibration ] the multi analog ins are passthrough only . So hdmi input is necessary for tweaking the room eq .

That said the 7030 does have a lovely analog stage and I have a modded 83 feeding the multi analogs too so leave them hooked up if only for sacd's ; dvd-a smile.gif Those 301's are the next project though ..

I saw an earlier link to the Rotel 1572 with a computer interface to control the setup on that unit. The message seem to imply that you could use it for the PT-7030.


The link is : http://bwgroupsupport.com/download/rotel-setup

Has anyone check this?

I don't know if anyone has had an opportunity to play around with the parametric eq on this unit yet. I promised I was going to early on when I first started this thread and never got around to it. Well, I finally got my theater almost finished with only the trim and 2 removable panels lacking. There was nothing left to do that would really affect the acoustics in the room so I got out my Umik-1 and Room EQ Wizard and started with measurements. Then I started tweaking the problem areas in the PEQ on the Sherbourn. I would run another sweep and noticed that absolutely nothing changed. It didn't matter whether or not I raised the Q, lowered the Q or anything else, I've just found that the PEQ doesn't work on any frequency on any channel. Anyone else had any issues or has anyone else even attempted to utilize the PEQ yet?

JVoth,

I have only adjusted the lowest 3 channels so I could dial in my subs. It is a pretty well known thing that the 7030 is weak in the subwoofer output area unless you adjust the PEQ. I did that and it fixed all of my sub range eq problems. I haven't adjust any other of the freqency ranges. But the three lowest did work. I adjusted the freqency points as well as the Q value and could tell the differences with those changes.

Sorry you are having trouble.

What makes you think they will sort out the bugs? They never did on 7030! Why would they start to care now?

I just bought a PT-7030 from its original owner. I hooked it up to a Sherbourn amp via balanced cables. Upon turning it on and off, there is a loud pop on all channels. Unbalanced connections? None. Can't be my amp or the cables using XLR's. I had an Anthem AVM-20 and an Onkyo PR-SC886 on the same combo that did not exhibit the same anomaly. Previous owner said he did not have any issues with a Rotel RMB-1095. Thoughts or ideas anyone? Thanks in advance.

Are you using the 7030's trigger to turn on the 7-350? If so you could possibly try another trigger solution that delays the turn on slightly like a monster power power filter or green power strip.

Hello Achaea. I am not using a 7-350 but 7-1250A. I can use my Panamax but I would not want to limit the draw the amp takes by taking it off a wall outlet. I still find it very strange that it does this given two other components in the same scenario don't..
