Thank you for the feedback. Can you tell if the SR7008 does even have any fans? My old AVR was fine for a few years, and then BAM super annoying fan noise.

thx.

Has anybody upgraded from the 7005? If so, do you recommend it? .... I am really undecided ,Sold my sr7005 and thinking on going with Denon 4520... Any thoughts?? smile.gifsmile.gif
post #516 of 2096
Several AV7005 owners upgraded to the predecessor to the 4520CI, the 4311CI, and were not only thrilled with the better audio fidelity offered by XT32 but also the fact that they no longer required their external amps as the 4520CI is designed to power 4-ohm speakers at reference volume levels. The Marantz 7008 also features XT32 if you want to stick with Marantz.

Is it possible to connect two pc fans to the dc output triggers of the 7008 in order to dissipate hot air?
My receiver is inside a cabinet which is closed ahed by a glass door but it is completely opened back; i would put a couple of fans as in a vertical position over the ampli cause it gets very hot when the front door is closed.
I don't think those triggers task is to power something continuously, i don't know if it can cause any problem.

It appears that DC trigger outputs are specified to deliver from 50 to 200 ma. Computer fan current drain varies greatly with the size and speed of the fan, but is in the same range so at the least some careful mouth holding seems indicated. You don't want to try to plug a 200 ma fan into a 50 ma trigger output!

Depending on your trigger output's current rating and the fan(s) you maybe able to control the fan(s) directly.

It is possible to use a trigger output to control AC outlets and control heavy loads without overloading the trigger source. A 12 Dc volt wall wart rated at say 1 amp will power a number of large 12v fans.
post #519 of 2096
Thank you arnyk.
Of course I looked for an ac outlet with trigger in, but i can't find any so far. Can you advice any (not wall mounted) I can find here in europe?
The fan input is 0,11A (http://www.noctua.at/main.php?show=productview&products_id=16&lng=en&set=1)
I could connect the two fans to my htpc that is always running when the 7008 is on (as its usb ir-receiver catch the power-on signal of both tv and prj) but it's not a "clean" solution tongue.gif

Greetings! A few days ago I replaced my failed, year old Onkyo TX-NR818 and M-282 amp (9.1) with the SR7008 and couldn't be more pleased. I realize in this crowd I'm probably preaching to the choir but just wanted to share the moment. Don't get me wrong...the 818 was a nice receiver but in contrast it sounded "fuzzy" and "thin". What a great machine this Marantz is!!
post #521 of 2096
Could not agree with you more. I am still exploring this machine, as I replaced a pioneer 1018, but wow!
I can even play FLAC files, this thing is a beautiful machine the SR7008 is!.smile.gif

Hi All

I have a problem with my SR7008. I can't find Bypass L/R function on my AV. In Audio->Audyssey have only Audyssey, Audyssey flat, manual and off. I put new firmware couple days ago but I dont remember that this option was there before.

Did you check the pool? I hear that guy likes to swim a lot. biggrin.gif

Seriously though ... it should be there. Try a soft reset by unplugging the unit for 10 minutes.
post #525 of 2096

I tried factory reset by presing power, game and a-dsx. It doesn't work. still don't have bypass. One more question? Is this function works only if i have conected more speakers. Now i have conected sub and front l + R. ?

post #526 of 2096
Uh yeh .. cannot bypass FL/FR when those are the only speakers. tongue.gif
post #527 of 2096

Ok. Thx, Ill check this today. I have somewere three satelites from my old av system. Thx again.

I've had my 7008 for several months and absolutely love it but I have an issue, that I'm thinking has to be operator error, and I'm hopeful one of you brilliant folks will show me the error of my ways. I have been running it with 5.1 in the TV room with Zone 2 for outdoor speakers, absolutely no issues. I just installed some speakers in the bedroom and have Zone 3 powering them. The problem I have is with input selection for Zone 3. I have a Chromecast connected to an HDMI input and when streaming music from it the main zone and zone 2 playback perfectly but Zone 3 has no audio. Once I have Zone 3 turned on if I change the input for something other than "Media Player" (which is what I have the Chromcast HDMI mapped to) it will not allow me to switch back to Media Player for Zone 3, even when that's what I have playing in Main and / or Zone 2. It will also not let me select Network for Zone 3 but Internet Radio works fine in Zone 3. I can't find anything in the owner's manual that limits what Zone 3 can output - I understand that only one network source can be used at any time but that shouldn't affect HDMI input, correct? Please tell me what I'm doing wrong - I'm going to be really dissed if this doesn't work after fishing the wires and shelling out all the cash for bedroom speakers!
post #529 of 2096
Although there should be no issue with Network audio playing to Zone 3, HDMI audio can only go to the main zone and Zone 2 unless you use the "All Zone Stereo" setting in which case the same HDMI stereo audio must be playing in all three zones.

post #530 of 2096
Yeah, the HDMI thing "clicked" in my head when I re-read the manual again. I didn't really think of the fact that Zone 2 actually has an HDMI output so it can accept HDMi inputs too. While it would really be nice if Zone 3 could convert the HDMI audio and play it I guess I can make due with using a Media Server on the network to play music. I did get the Network working by using the app on my phone - the front pane display (even with the door flipped down) can be confusing at times because it is still showing the input for the Main when you have Zone 2 or 3 selected on the remote and you are trying to switch to inputs that are not allowed (HDMI inputs for example).

Thanks for the response!

Hi All,

I just got a 7008 and set it up yesterday (manually for now).

I have a couple of questions.

1) For subwoofer mode, the choices are "LFE" and "LFE + Main".

LFE says low range signal for speakers set to small will go to sub in addition to the LFE.
LFE + Main says low range signal for all speakers will go to sub in addition to the LFE.

My speakers are set to small even though my mains go down to 23hz. This means 80hz and below go to the subs plus LFE. So what is the difference between the two sub modes? It looks like they both do the same thing.

2) Someone did a manual calibration using an SPL meter. We used 80db as what we wanted to the test tone to be when calibrating and adjusted the speaker levels up and down to active that. However later I went back into the manual calibration mode to fine tune and the levels were a lot lower. What is the reason for that? Do I need to put the master volume the same as what it was when we did the calibration?

Thanks for your help.
Ken

1. When all speakers are set to SMALL (as recommended), both settings do the same thing so leave it at the default setting of LFE.
2. Manual calibration? Huh? You've got the most advanced version of Audyssey on the 7008 ... and much better served using it.
post #533 of 2096
Thanks for the reply.

It looks like they do the same. I called Marantz this afternoon and they said use LFE + Main. Don't know why.

I'll do the Audessy setup tomorrow. I had no time when I inboxed and hooked it up. I was familiar with the manual setup and so I had done that in the meantime.

Thanks again,
Ken
post #534 of 2096

Yeh, the only way that advice holds true is if the front mains are set to LARGE. And correct, using the manual test tones you'd have to raise the master volume up to the same level when you calibrated them. When you run Audyssey, you won't have to adjust the master volume as the test tones will be output at 75db.

Apple TV vs. NAS for accessing iTunes Library & Playlists

Hi guys, well I got the Apple TV but (1) it isn't connecting to my iTunes (I'm really losing my patience!), and (2) even if it did connect I wonder if my computer needs to be on for me to access my iTunes library (AND playlists) thru AppleTV so I can listen to music on my Marantz SR7008 (which would seriously undermine the convenience I'm hoping to achieve). So I'm now considering the NAS option some of you suggested. But here's the thing: it would need to connect to the BACK of the SR7008 (not the front the USB input, since I have no space in my cabinet to plug anything into the front. Sooooo, can anyone recommend a NAS which I can connect to the back of the SR7008 via HDMI (or other connection)??? Thanks!!!
post #536 of 2096
Have you signed in with your apple ID in itunes? Have you turned ON home sharing?
Yes, your computer has to be on (itunes running) in order for the Apple TV to be able to stream the music.

A NAS does not have any HDMI ports. A NAS has either a USB or Ethernet port, or sometimes both. You need to connect your NAS to your PC with a USB cable or directly to your router with an ethernet cable.
post #537 of 2096
The farther you advance beyond a disc player plugged directly into your TV, the more complicated it is going to be. To simplify it for the non-techies in your household, you are going to have to invest a substantial amount of your time, varying from programming a programmable universal remote to assembling and configuring computerized systems.

The few NAS units that I've investigated are only that: Network Attached Storage. They use USB only to expand their storage capacity, not to connect directly to a computer. If you want to use them for audio/video storage without an intermediate media server (e.g. an HTPC or RasberryPi running XBMC), they usually need to support DLNA, too. Most don't, but very few audio/video devices can use either of the two other dominant file sharing protocols, CIFS (aka SMB) or NFS.

Usually the easiest way to start at providing movies-and-music-on-demand wink.gif is a hard drive connected directly to a Blu-ray player. You still have the annoyance of making sure both that the disk has been formatted in a way the BD player recognizes and that the files you put on it are in formats that the BD player recognizes.

Some of these topics are probably better discussed in the Home Theater Computer forum at http://www.avsforum.com/f/26/home-theater-computers
post #538 of 2096
Yes, I entered my ID and password on iTunes and set Homeshare to ON. Then I entered my ID and password on Apple TV... tried a several times (also tried turning everything off/on, rebooted over and over, etc), never connects. Sound like a NAS isn't going to make my life any easier. I'm truly amazed that it is so difficult to access iTunes through the receiver when it has so many other Apple-friendly features (airplay, ipod input), but it so easy to access my Windows Media content.

At the end of the day, if my computer needs to be ON and iTunes OPEN, then all of this won't take me where I want to go (i.e. easily access my library of iTunes music from the receiver without having to go up 2 flight of stairs to turn on my computer). Best solution seems to be finding a bigger cabinet so I can plug my ipod into the front. Sometimes the old school solutions are the best solutions smile.gif
post #539 of 2096
Some NASes serve as itune servers too. So you put all your music in the NAS, connect it to your router, and your Apple TV should see it as an itunes server.
I have a Wester Digital MyBook Live and I can confirm that it worked with an iphone when I had one, and it works with the itunes on the PC. I don't know if it works with Apple TV because I never had one but I don't see why it wouldn't.

read the amazon reviews to find out. http://www.amazon.com/Personal-Cloud-Storage-Share-Photos/dp/B00439GMJ2

good idea, but if my apple tv can't connect with my desktop, then I'm doubtful it would connect to any NAS. Thanks anyway smile.gif
