The **OFFICIAL** Marantz SR5008, SR6008 and SR7008 AV Receiver Owner's Thread - Page 50

Yes, it's possible with the limitation being that if you play the same source to both TV and VPR, the resolution output to the TV would be dropped to that of the VPR (eg. 720p).

Thread Starter 
That's the way I do with my SR7008. I use a 22" LED tv as OSD while listening to music and the projector only to watch movies but my 7008 has two HDMI outs for main zone. Try selecting same source for both main and zone 2 and see what happens.
post #1473 of 2104
I tryed but do not works.
When I select the Zone 2 the TV don't receive any signal.
Can somebody explain me how it work the Zone 2 output?
Thanks
post #1474 of 2104
If the TV is connected to the Zone 2 (HDMI) monitor output, then setting Zone 2 to ON and selecting an HDMI source for Zone 2 should pass to the TV.
post #1475 of 2104
But if I want to use the TV to see the Marantz screen for example to see the music files collection instead of switch on the VPR what I can do?
post #1476 of 2104
The GUI will not display on Zone 2, rather you would need to upgrade to the SR7008 which has two main zone outputs or purchase the predecessor SR6007 which also has 2 main zone HDMI outputs.

can't seem to find an answer... does anyone happen to know what the headphone output (Ohms) is with the sr5008?

I apologize in advance for the stupid questions I'm going to do, but this is my first "modern" AV receiver and I have some difficulties to understand the connection.
I want to connect my old powered KEF subwoofer PSW2000 to the SR 6008. For the connection to the Marantz no problem, I have understood that there are 2 connections available for 2 subwoofer connection but what about the connection with the subwoofer?
There are 2 Line in input sockets left and right and 2 high pass output sockets left and right.
Where do I have to connect the single cable that is connected on one of the subwoofer output of the Marantz?
And wich kind of cable do I have to use?
post #1480 of 2104

On most subs, the Left input would be the connection on the sub' however, you should be able to confirm by looking at your sub's Owner's manual. Also a coax digital cable would be used.

post #1481 of 2104
Some people like to connect both inputs on the sub, using a Y connector from the same subwoofer output on the receiver. It doesn't affect the quality of the sound, but with some subs, using both inputs does double the sub's output power. That doubling might require a lower volume control setting on the subwoofer when running the subsequent Audyssey calibration.
post #1482 of 2104
It might also be worth noting that with some subs both inputs are already connected internally, so you only need to connect to either or. My SVS is that way.
post #1483 of 2104
I've been trying to decide between the 7008 and a Yamaha 3030 for several weeks now with favor leaning toward Yamaha, partially due to a poor comparison at Best Buy between the Yamaha 2030 and Marantz 7007. I returned to BB to get a better listen, as the difference I heard previously seemed too dramatic to accept on faith and several in the yamaha thread suggested the Yamaha might have had an enhancer feature turned on - it was a relatively low volume demo. I had them run both in pure direct this time and the 7007 sounded much better. If there was any difference between the two units sound quality it was too subtle to amount to anything for me. Of course neither units aut-EQ could be setup in their room.

So now I've come back around to favoring the Marantz 7008 again, figuring XT32 would be a more distinguishing/appreciable upgrade than Yamaha's DSPs. However, comparing the 7008 to the 7007 on Marantz's site, I see that the 7008 comes in a pound or two lighter, despite 2 added channels of amplification. So I'm now wondering where the weight went, a little concerned by rumors of Marantz and Denon consolidating, that the guts of the 7008 might have more in common with the Denon 4000 than it's predecessor the Marantz 7007 - which I also auditioned a 4000 in pure direct while at BB and was surprisingly less impressed.

Also, does anyone happen to know if Marantz sends their HDMI in for testing/certification or whatever, like Yamaha does? HDMI compatibility with a new Mitsubishi 7900 projector is what instigated the upgrade, along with the lack of 3D pass through in my current Denon 3808.

Although I do appreciate what you are trying to do Chad, you can not evaluate an AV receivers performance demoing the units on someone else's speakers in some room other than your own.

Look for a piece with the feature set that fit your needs and take one (or two) Home for a few days.

I sell and install alot of these things (Denon, Marantz, Onkyo, Pioneer Elite and Yamaha) and IMO the SR7008 is the current state of the art.
post #1485 of 2104

Chad, I was in the same place..3030 or 7008 I went with the Marantz I'd say about a month ago.. I really like it..Oh man XT32 is nice!

Before you spend any $$ at BB You might want to give JD at AV Science a call. I got a really good deal on mine.

PS The SR7008 replaced my 3802 Denon..

Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, it seems that almost anything I'm interested in these days is special order only from local dealers, which often means no returns. I've always had a conscious problem buying something if I knew there was any likelihood I wouldn't be keeping it too. And I don't know any place that wouldn't have a problem with someone buying two items with the clear intent of bringing back whichever one they don't like as much, especially if both are just stand ins to try to evaluate a purchase of their successors or the next model up.

Obviously it's not as accurate as setting it up in the environment it'll be used in. However, the speakers were the same, the room was the same, each component was in Pure Direct mode and supposedly level matched (at least close enough that I couldn't hear an obvious volume difference). My room is treated and I think my speakers are likely easier to drive than the ones used in the demo. So the only real unknown is the difference in how they will sound after EQ, which I've decided to air on the side of caution and go with the one that supports XT32 and is reported to have better power. I was looking forward to hearing Yamaha's DSPs, but I've never liked DSPs, so there's a good chance I won't like theirs that much either.

No doubt. I'll probably give JD and a few other online dealers I've dealt with a call today, see who can get one the fastest. I've got a local dealer that always gives me a solid deal too, they just take longer to get the stuff I'm usually interested in, as their primary business is appliances. I had a pleasant enough chat with the Magnolia guys, but they weren't very knowledgable of the products and they insisted they couldn't break SRP, going so far as to show me what Amazon, Crutchfield and other online shops were advertising, as if any authorized dealer is going to break MAP. It would have been funny, if such big box stores hadn't pushed out so much of their competition. Ten-fifteen years ago, even the likes of Circuit City wouldn't quote you full SRP if you asked.

Here is a link to a review that helped me when I was considering buying my new SR7008, which I like very much, by the way: http://www.audioholics.com/av-receiver-reviews/marantz-sr5008-sr6008-sr7008. It addresses some of your questions about the differences between Denon and Marantz. I have owned several Marantz receivers, including two at present, and have always found them to be top performers. A friend of mine owns an audio store specializing in Yamaha receivers and would have been willing to give me a very good deal on a Yamaha rather than my 7008. But in addition to always being sort of partial to Marantz, the difference between Audyssey XT-32 and the Yamaha equivalent would have been more than enough to tip me toward Marantz. I hope this helps. I think you have already gotten good advice with respect to the 7008 from some of the other posters..

I'm a new owner of a SR5008 I have one problem right now is their a way to have the USB power down when you turn off the unit I have my External Hard drive in the usb but it keeps power to it even when the unit is shut off . I would like to not have to keep unplugging the drive every time I use it..
post #1489 of 2104
I'm having the exact same problem. Did you find a solution?
post #1490 of 2104
I am unsure of any way to do this. Is your USB device self-powered or does it need to be plugged in? If you have to plug it in can you just power it down instead of unplugging it? On the back of the 5008 there is a DC Out. I am unsure if they make a female/female or male/male (which ever one it is) DC wire that could plug into that and then into the USB. Even if that is possible, unsure if the power cuts out on the DC out if the unit is off, but I am guessing it may.

Good luck

Brian

You can also look at this thread for some additional basic set up info. Within this thread is another link for setting up specific subwoofer and their crossover levels.

Although doing so you would lose the ability to power on the AVR with a smart phone, if you set the IP CONTROL setting to OFF, this should disable the USB port when the unit is powered to Standby mode.

I've had a problem since I updated my SR5008's firmware. SiriusXM is not working. I can login just fine but the screen is blank except the two options:"account info" and "sign out".

If I select "account info" it says it's all good, but there are no music channels listed at all. Very frustrating. I can't be the only person to have this problem... or can I? eek.gif
post #1494 of 2104

There's another major firmware update due out on March 6 which may resolve the issue, otherwise you could try a soft reset by unplugging the unit for 10 minutes and if still no joy a microprocessor reset (p.200 OM).
post #1495 of 2104
i know this is a tough question, but cant decide between marantz 5008, pioneer sc71 and yamaha rx830..
tv is sony 65 inch 4k; bd player is Oppo 103

which would you choose at this point?
thanks for your opinion! cool.gif
post #1496 of 2104
Thanks for all the help turning off the IP control worked for me this is a temporary solution until I finish building my media server.

Considering this is the SR5008 thread ... goes without saying ... the SR5008. smile.gif Not to mention, it's the only one that can EQ the subwoofer.
post #1498 of 2104
I'm leaning towards this one, my only "concern" is the tiny display...I know the on screen will take care of all that, it just seems kind of weird..

I haven't had a Marantz component in 30 years, and I don't remember them being as "high end" as they appear to be now..
Its so difficult to decide, as there are several great receivers out now in this price range.
Any hdmi handshake issues with this guy?

I had the same worries about the tiny display with my SR5008. It's not a problem as you get quite use to using the on screen display. I have my harmony one remote setup with the info button always ready to see what's going on with the avr.
