The **OFFICIAL** Marantz SR5008, SR6008 and SR7008 AV Receiver Owner's Thread - Page 39

post #1141 of 2087

Hello,

 

I purchased an SR5008 a couple weeks ago and have been using it in 4.1 mode, as the centre speaker is on backorder. I am noticing some noise (crackles, static) on the right surround while at subdued portions of the audio and only in this channel. I swapped speakers but the issue stayed in the right surround. I moved the speaker wire as it was passing over an old fluorescent light fixture (thought it might be picking up noise from the metal case) but this did not help.

 

Would a factory reset be of any use or is there something else I can try to rectify the issue? Do I need to exchange the AVR?

post #1142 of 2087
As you have confirmed the issue does not lie with the speaker, try doing a soft reset (unplug the unit for 10 minutes) first and if still no joy, then do the microprocessor reset, first ensuring you have the config file backed up if you don't want to run Audyssey again.

I assume if I was using outboard amps with an SRX008 as there would be no draw on the inboard amps that this would be a non issue?

If you prefer pre/pros, and Audyssey XT32 isn't a necessity for you, you might want to consider the AV7701 pre/pro. It should be significantly less expensive than the AV8801. If you do want XT32, then the SR7008 would be the receiver model to get. Unless you're willing to consider other brand names, of course, in which case you might investigate the equivalent Denon AVR X4000.

Thanks JDSmoothie for the very quick reply. I should have stayed up another 5mins. Will do as you suggest and post results.

post #1145 of 2087
Does the SR5008 and 6008 have the same power supply? I am trying to figure out the 2 lbs weight difference.

Tried unplugging, no joy. Did a factory reset and could hear faint popping in the right surround when it was inactive. Other channels just had a faint, white noise thing happening. After setup it is back to the same behaviour with crackles and static when the speaker is in low use.

 

I am going to get hold of the distributor and see if they have any suggestions. After today they will be closed until Tuesday and I would like to have this solved before that. Funny how annoying this is once it is noticed.

Guys I need help in finding a good 2 channel amp to drive my minior audio GR20 ... I tried an Emotiva xpa 2 but didn't like it.

Again, it always happens in the same spots trying to playback Elysium. Every single other movie I've watched so far doesn't have any problems. However, back on the first day, when I was trying to figure out why Elysium was cutting out, there was a period where I popped Tron: Legacy in and it had severe video cut outs and pink/white-ish pixels (looked a lot like artifacts or noise) all over the top quarter of the screen going all the away across from left to right. There was also no sound either at all either. But upon turning the receiver off and back on again, it went away and hasn't cropped up since. Still, it does make me slightly worried.

Elysium plays back fine when not connected to the receiver so I'm pretty sure that rules out the disc being defective.

So far I've tried disabling CEC options, disabling Deep colour options, resetting the microprocessor three times, and I've even went as far as to purchase a Gefen Detective Plus HDMI restorer, as recommended by the Marantz support individual. And of course, ironically, that didn't fix it either. The video still cuts out in the exact same spots. The only difference is this time the 2 or 3 inch pink/white lines that would briefly appear and disappear (looked like a quick flicker) that I described in my earlier post do not appear when the video cuts out. It just goes black.

If anyone has any further ideas that would be great. However, seeing as nothing so far seems to work, I imagine there's something wrong with my unit.

I had a similar issue with my 6008 and my PS3. Video would randomly drop or got pink lines and I couldn't figure out why. I was using a tartan HDMI cable. After a lot of cable swapping I found that the video issue was occurring because I had my chromecast plugged into the HDMI port right next to the tartan cable. I moved the chromecast and fixed my video issues.

I also don't know why the tartan cable was affected by the chromecast because a cheap (cheaper) HDMI cable that I had laying around was not affected. The only thing I can figure is that the tartan cable sits a little loosed in the Game HDMI port than it does in the other HDMI ports, and the cheap cable sits snug in there. Could have been some sort of emi issue.

While listening to some music tracks through our apple mini mac & wanted to see what the sound difference was using the d-max & when attempting to activate it,  display said unavailable.

Have the apple mini mac assigned to media player..

What gives?

Thanks Selden Ball,
I completely forgot about the AV7701! I'll look into it. I'm in no great hurry, maybe now that the SRX008 range is out there will be a replacement model for the AV7701 that will include XT32?

Sorry, I have no insider information about what new models D&M might be announcing later this year. Support for HDMI v2.0 is likely, and they typically announce replacements for their top-of-the-line equipment (like the Denon AVR 4520 and Marantz AV8801) in October of even-numbered years. Right now, their least expensive receiver with XT32 is the Denon x4000.

Why is it likely? If we were talking bout Onkyo (a proven record of bleeding edge feature adoption, sometimes to their detriment), I could believe it. But what are you going to plug your new HDMI 2.0 AVR into? That one Panasonic LED announced late in 2013?

I'm dubious.
post #1153 of 2087
I assume v2.0 will be one of the new features which will be available just because of all the hype. It'll probably be only in the high-end models, though, if only because of the additional expense for the new HDMI chipsets.

At least some of Sony's high-end 4K TVs supposedly have it with a firmware update.
See http://www.sony.co.uk/support/en/product/KD-84X9005/downloads/KD84X9005_upgrade

I've been expecting some mentions of it in the CES reportage, but so far I haven't seen any.

I have the same issue, I would think that it has something to do with a PCM stream.
Any ideas?
post #1155 of 2087

Only enabled with analog or PCM audio signals with sample rate of 44/48kHz.
post #1156 of 2087
I have a setup question for the 7008 remote. I use a 5007 Blu Ray player for both movies and CDs. I use the blu-ray HDMI input on the receiver for movies, and the 2 channel analog audio input for cds in direct mode. I want to be able to control the 5007 with the receiver remote while set to the CD input just as I would when the Blu Ray input is selected (so I can pause, switch tracks, etc with the 7008 receiver remote).

When I try to use Marantz blu ray codes on the cd button, it won't accept them. If I use the Marantz cd codes, none of them work on the 5007 blu ray player.

Grrrr.... Am I stuck using two remotes, or going to a universal? Or is there a trick here...
post #1157 of 2087
^^
So then you are saying the remote actually "accepts" them, rather just that none of the three codes below actually work to operate the UD5007? If you record the BDP under the CD button, ensure to turn on the BDP using the CD button as well.

post #1158 of 2087
It will not accept those codes, or any 2xxx codes. It just flashes NG. The only codes it will accept for CD function is 3xxx, but the five codes listed for Marantz don't work on the 5007.
post #1159 of 2087
^^
Each of those three "Blu Ray player" codes should be able to be entered under the CD button, however you may also want to try the Blu Ray button as well.
post #1160 of 2087
I already have the blu ray function button programmed and it works fine. You can not use the blu ray codes on the CD button. The remote will not accept them. See 7008 owners manual page 281 and 282. Maybe what I'm trying to do just isn't possible... but that would seem like an oversight by Marantz.
post #1161 of 2087
Hello Gentlemen

I have read some of this thread but my new receiver/speakers have arrived and I need to get things hooked up to make sure all is well.

I just purchased a Marantz SR6008, a pair of Klipsch RF 82II's, a Klipsch RW-12D, and I have a new Polk PSW505 12" that I purchased a while ago which I may or may not use in this set up.

I plan on bi amp or bi wiring (sorry new to this and new receivers in general) the two RF 82 II's. Can you give me a decent starting point for setting the crossover freq. on the highs(the horn) and the mids/lows(two 8" in each speaker)?

Where is a good starting point for my subwoofer freq.? (Klipsch RW-12D)

Would you guys even bother with the Polk sub for now or just wait and get another Klipsch?

Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me.

One more thing- Would the best way to go be to turn on the receiver and select the proper bi amp/wiring selection then turn off/ unplug and make the connections to my speakers or is it ok to make the wiring connections to the speakers , turn the receiver on then select the proper bi amp/bi wiring selection?

Hello, i will try to help. Since you will have a stereo setup i would recommend bi-amping but if or when you will use your setup for home cinema then i wouldnt use bi-amping...because you will get more power running 5.2 than 7.2 for example. I have a sr7008 and had bi-amped front speakers (monitor audio bx6) and honestly i didnt hear any noticable sound improvements. That is way i decided to rather have a little more headroom with my 5.2 setup than runing 5.2 +bi-amp. On the other hand you can bi-wire the front without sacrificing additional power reserves (but your speakers are very sensitive and probably you wont be needing to much power to hit desired sound level in you room). Take some time and try different setting and then you decide what sounds best to you. As far as the setting crossover settings you can just run audyssey (automated EQ system on your receiver) and it will do all the things for you (crossover, distance, speaker levels)...if you wont be running audyssey i would set a crossver at 60hz for starter (your speakers are rated at 32hz) and no more than 80 (that is just my taste biggrin.gif) and set your front speakers at SMALL. If you want to try them runing as large just press the PURE DIRECT button on remote twice (even the porthole display will be off)...it is the purest sound you will get from your receiver wink.gif . And another thing...if you would like to have a sub engaged at pure direct mode be sure to set LFE as LFE+main so that when they are designated as large the sub will play to the crossover you have set (60 or 80 HZ). And i would run both subs if you can as the sound is so much smoother than with one (later you can just add another klipsch so the subs will be identical)....i have purchased another sub just a few days ago and i cant never look back to just one sub eek.gif . If you need more info just shoot biggrin.gif

The UD5007 is a Blu Ray player. As noted on p. 284 of the Owner's manual, the Blu Ray player codes should work with the CD button. If that is not the case, I would contact Marantz.

As is often noted in this forum, the use of the "bi-amp" feature on the AVR will not provide any benefit in the way of either additional power or better sound. This also applies to "bi-wiring" as well. Suggest you read the Audyssey 101/FAQ Guide for more information on how to best setup Audyssey. The best placement for dual subs is to locate them equidistant from the main listening position as the SR6008 does not feature Audyssey Sub EQ HT as does the SR7008 which can calibrate dual subs.

Yes, I am aware it is a blu ray player. I said that in my first post. I appreciate that you are trying to help... but I am telling you, the remote will not accept 5xxx codes on the CD function button. It flashes NG rather than OK.

I guess last resort is to use learn mode and teach it each button. I'll contact marantz.

Will any of these receivers (5008/6008/7008) display the sample rate of the incoming digital data?

post #1167 of 2087

The 5008 specs say it's 14 5/16" deep. Is that the depth of the case only or does that include knobs and inputs? I'm interested in a media cabinet that has an inner depth of only 15". Any chance the 5008 fits in there?

post #1168 of 2087
The Owner's manual shows 13 3/16" to include front knobs and back speaker posts. Keep in mind however that you'll want at least 2"-3" additional room behind the unit for cables and such. Also if the back is closed off, you'll also want to consider cutting at least one large ventilation hole.

Also note that the dimensions of each unit are described at the end of the respective Owner's manual which is available on line at ....

Yes, that is part of the Information screen of all these models.
post #1170 of 2087
Can someone please tell me how to wrap my front speakers inward toward the center on my 7008 in PLIIx Movie Mode? I have set Panorama in Music Mode, but I would also like to slightly widen my dialogue soundstage if possible in Movie Mode. I knew how to do that on my old receiver, but have not yet figured it out on the new one. Thanks for the help.
