Very much appreciate any assitance!

Hi picksjr, the assignment should be:
Digital In - VCR-1 = Off
HDMI In - VCR-1 = None
Component In - VCR-1 = 1-RCA

Got it! Thank you all! As promised, stick with a good asset allocator and use mutual funds. My favorites = LAALX MDLOX BUFBX.

CHEERS!

HI All,

Considering buying an amp to accompany my 2807- my amp purchase.

I have a 5.1 system running:
Paradigm Studio 60 v4
Paradigm CC-590
Paradigm ADP-590
and SVS SB12+

Some questions I'm researching are:

2 or 3 channel? I assume that the AVR can drive the surrounds just fine with a 2 or three channel taking care of the front and center.

What amps pair up well with the 2807 well- recommendations?

I am considering D-sonic but have read that the 2807 may not allow the amp to perform ideally- Any experience with D-Sonic.


Price range is 500-2000
Room size is 16x20
seating at 10-12ft from speakers.

Any input is appreciated.

Thx
DPN

I've been very pleased with Emotiva XPA-3

More clarity, more dynamic range, a different sonic signature, less taxing on the receiver just for starters.

I can't say that I am missing anything in particular. I'm happy with my setup but have always wanted to add and amp. The system sounds good as isbut would it sound better with more power behind it?

Clarity and dynamic range improvements would be good.

I don't listen to anything particularly loud and use it 50/50 music/movies.

Are you suggesting that it is unnecessary?
post #3940 of 4105
^^^

yup, that's exactly what i'm suggesting...

an external amp, "audiophile comments" aside, won't give you more clarity or dynamic range if you aren't clipping the amp now... given your comments on listening level, the amps in the avr aren't even breaking a sweat...

I found a rotel rb-1572 for 750. thinking about pulling the trigger. A good price?
post #3942 of 4105
Just bought the XPA-5. How does it sound? Wel, I will have to reference that when I actually get to listen. But I have no regrets after reading fine reviews and physically visiting Emotiva here in Franklin Tennessee. Met Dan, the President of the company and was provided a tour of the products room by Matt. And I was a walkin off the street. Outstanding company, very friendly and customeroriented and there's a 30 day no hassle warranty if unhappy. Besides, it's only 1 1/2 hour drive from my living room. New Processor will be next to replace my 2807, it works fine but is dated, and then new subs.
post #3943 of 4105
i have changed my cabinet that my amp lives in and i am concerned about the heat its generating, its getting too hot to touch. has anyone fitted a fan to this unit??? also what is the plastic vent for on the top of the unit?? looks like its meant to come off for some reason.

all help appreciated.
post #3944 of 4105
^^
The 2807 needs at least 3-4" clearance above it so the warm air has enough space to escape through the top vents. You can certainly add a PC fan or two (connected to the switched outlets) to draw air away from the top of the unit as well to keep it cooler. If the unit is getting too hot to touch, it likely means either insufficient ventilation room, or you're driving low impedance speakers too hard as it should normally only feel luke warm to the touch.
post #3945 of 4105
clearance is a little limited, speakers are 8ohm front left and right, 8 ohm center and 6ohm surround. usually i only listen to max of -25db. I think i am going to try fitting a couple of fans to the back of the unit to try and draw out the heat and pull in some fresh from the front
post #3946 of 4105
What else is in the cabinet? My old 987 (same as 2807) ran very cool. I had used fans to suck out heat from cabinet, but this was due to my DVR.

Another factory reset has not seemed to solve the problem....

My AVR-987 is doing this same thing. Originally, I would hear a click from the unit, and the volume would mute. Power off/on would resolve it. Then, the problem advanced into this scenario. No video or audio, and the dB readout locks in place if I make an input selection change.

I took it out of the system for a few weeks, then decided to hook it up to test and it was working fine. I reinstalled it back into the system, but only used the pre-outs this time, connected to external amps. I thought maybe the internal amps were overheating causing the problem. It worked for about 2 weeks, and now the problems are back again.

The problem presented in exactly the same order as well: The audio started dropping with a click, power cycle would fix it, and now I'm back to no audio/video with the dB readout locking if I make an input selection change.

Anyone found a solution for this?

Also, on a side note, any ideas if you can disable the internal amps by removing the speaker protect fuses? Or will that also disable the pre-out jacks?

If the internal amps were overheating, the unit would shut down in Protection Mode, so not likely the issue. As leaving it unplugged for a month resolved the OP's issue and yours (all be it for a short time), you may want to try that again, otherwise reset the microprocessor (see manual) and see if that resolves the issue. Although as the reset didn't resolve the issue for the OP, repair/replace is likely the next option.

I came here looking for a solution to this EXACT problem. Glad it is not just me. Sometimes I can get it to work, but eventually it does the above. I used to be able to go into setup and switch the zone and it would fix the problem, but now when I go into setup it keeps blinking "wait" and never stops. So frustrating.

I am not savvy when it comes to receivers. Is my best bet to get it repaired or buy another receiver? Thanks for the help.
post #3950 of 4105
Interesting more people are having this same problem. I've got a post going in an electronics forum, hoping I might be able to track down the fault with some help. You can read it here.

I'm sure Denon repair facilities has dealt with this problem, especially if we have 3-4 people right here on the forum who have experienced it. Would be great to have access to their database to see if these symptoms have a suggested repair ...

I recently purchased a Sony Blu-Ray Player BDP-S580 to replace my original Denon DVD player. All works well EXCEPT I cannot get the audio to play through Zone 2. I have no problem playing music via my DirecTV receiver and my iPod. Has anyone else had this problem or am I missing something in the setup?
post #3952 of 4105

HDMI audio will not pass to Zone 2.

Like the previous poster said, HDMI, and other digital sources, will not play over Zone 2. You'll need to run a separate stereo RCA cable for that.

AVR 2807 with Apple TV HDMI input

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I need help in setting up the avr 2807 with HDMI1 input with an Apple TV . My setup is about five years old with a 2807 and a Sharp XV-Z2000 Projector in a home theatre. I connected the ATV directly to a new tv with hdmi input and it works fine. I downloaded the lasted updates to the ATV and reconnected it to the 2807 HDMI1 input. I have followed the manual set up to select HDMI for VCR1 input and adjusted the aduio input to AMP. NO luck when selecting VCR1 or anyother input selection-. My first time to use the HDMI input and followed setup on page 49 and 50 of manual -video setup>HDMI In Assign>VCR-1>audio>amp.
Is the HDMI 1.1 in the original compatable with the ATV HDMI for proper handshake? There is no audio or video on the screen.
Any suggestions will be appreciated. My first post on this forum although have visited often

Try using HDMI2 to see if you get the same result. Also try connecting another HDMI source to test the input is working correctly.
post #3956 of 4105
Thanks for the help. I connected my IPAD HDMI out to 2807 HDMI1>VCR1 and audio works fine but still no video. I changed input from IPAD to HDMI2>VCR2 and audio works fine but still no video. Comments?

Thanks

I have the same issue with my 2807 as below, ive already had it repaired once a year ago, it was 80.00 but they said the part was 1.50. I wonder if this is capacitor related? I know my tv just had the same issue with not turning on an i replaced the capacitors and it worked, seems there are alot of capacitor issues "popping" up lately with electronics....any ideas...i hate to replace this unit, once in a while if i leave if it off it kicks on and i can get a couple days out of it...seems heat related or long use related...about a foot above it for cooling and its out in the open....dont get it.

I've owned my AVR-2807 for years, but it's got to be the most complicated devices ever designed. I've gone back and forth between the manual set-up vs. Audyssey and like some aspects of both.

In terms of music played from my iPod, my preference is to just listen to it through my front tower speakers and the subwoofer. How can I configure the reciever to only utilize the front speakers and subwoofer for music?
post #3959 of 4105

Yes, that is what the STEREO surround mode does (see p. 52).

Thanks. So if if I follow the advanced playback set-up, my iPod will play through the speakers that I configure? Is there anything else I'll need to do/choose when I plug my iPod in?
