YodaDad,
How did you get the price point down to $999? Magnolia here in Baltimore is listing it at $1099 when their shipment arrives in a week or two.

I just looked at the Crutchfield site and did not see the 2807.

Also, anyone with this unit... Is it possible to display volume on a monitor with Component or HDMI when in 480P, 720P or 1080i?

Thanks,
JayMan...

magnolia in chicago also $1,099.

Anyone know if it will be available in silver when released?
post #94 of 4105
Matt, don't know, 999 was the "special sale price" they came up with. I didn't even try to bargain.

Blake, the 2807 will generate a series of sound pulses through each speaker sequentially, including the sub. By the way if you only have a 5.1 or 6.1 connect your surrounds to "surround" and not to "surround back"; like I did first time.

Hey YodaDad...

Any luck with the Audio?
I'm having the same problem myself...unreal!!!
post #96 of 4105
2807 is available at Crutchfield...you have to go to chat with a service person...he will give you a link immediately to order it...have fun

It is my understanding that Denon is dropping silver on all new receivers starting with the 2807.

Hi guys,

I just picked up the AVR-2807 at Tweeter in San Diego yesterday. The local Magnolia (Best Buy) didn't have it. So, check out Tweeter if you don't want to wait to order one from Crutchfield.

I scanned this thread and couldn't find whether anybody has mentioned whether room equalization works on the analog inputs, as the forthcoming HK-640 will be able to do. The manual does not seem to address this either.

Newbie here, first post.

UPS just delivered my Denon AVR-2807 from Crutchfield. I haven't even taken it out of the box yet. My axiom M60's and QS8's are not due for another 3-4 weeks. Also, my Mirage S12 is backordered from Vanns. I only have a passive sub at the moment with some 100 watt surrounds. What would be the best way to hook up the passive sub? Or should I leave the amp in the box until I get some real speakers? I would like to get a head start and at least familiarize myself with the receiver. Dang, just like a kid with a new toy
post #101 of 4105
The answer, gdaddy, is you should take it out, take lots of pictures, attach whatever speakers you got and post a detailed description along with the pictures

On the receiver, set the front L/R speakers to LARGE. Run speaker wire from the L/R speakers outs to the passive sub. Run speaker wire from the passive sub to your L/R satellites.

Forgive me, but I'm not sure I understand this. The sub only has one set of (-) (+) inputs. Wouldn't this be a crossover between the L/R speaker outs of the receiver?

Wups, I thought it was a passive subwoofer from a sub/sat combo. Since it isn't, you're probably better off just connecting your speakers (no sub) until the powered sub arrives. No simple way to connect a passive sub without an outboard amp.

Are you sure?

Because I read this:

'The AVR-2807 is scheduled to be available in March 2006, in black or silver. '

It's an older Panasonic Sub "Theatre in a Box." I'll just wait on the Mirage S12 to arrive. I appreciate your help!

It is now listed on their page..at full list price

ABT Electronics also has it up on their website, on backorder though.

Update...

I'm making good progress setting up all my gear. I finally got all the settings correct for the audio to pass through properly.

As expected...the video is another story though.
I am not able to get my Comcast Motorola 6412's DVI to pass through the 2807's HDMI switch.

I have been able to pass Component Video with my Satellite box and my Oppo Dvd player is working with a DVI to HDMI cord.

Anyone able to get their Motorola 6412 Cable box to work with the HDMI Switch on the receiver?
post #111 of 4105
Update #2

I just finished setting up all the components and had a chance to auto speaker setup.

I am using optical cables for sound from all componets

Cable: Could not get the HDMI to work (big surprise) so I used component with no noticable change in video quality. In fact, my non-HD channels look a lot better. The audio is nothing short of FANTASTIC! I should note that this opinion is coming from someone that was using a 14 year old Pioneer Surround receiver.

DVD: HDMI works great! Audio is again...FABULOUS!

Satellite: Component...looks much better then when I had it hooked up directly to my Samsung DLP. Upconversion must be working great! Optical cable for audio is FAB!

I have barely scratched the surface in what this baby can do. I have a LOT of reading and playing to do before I master the capabilities of this receiver. I am extremely pleased with this purchase!
post #112 of 4105
dq, sounds like you have had a fair amount more success than I. Also I was hoping to not have to buy a bunch of new (optical??) cables, and do everthing via HDMI.
I did manage to get the denon to output audio from the dvd via hdmi but only to L/R speakers (not sub, center or surrounds). I know they can get signals, as all worked during the room eq set up. Pg. 49 of the manual talks about setting up the video portion and then switches to audio. This is where I get lost. Anybody have any ideas???
post #113 of 4105
Yoda...

If you have the audio/video setup correctly...but no sound???
You may need to adjust surround mode. I'm not at the unit right now so I can't say for sure what button to adjust on the front of the unit. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out why my Satellite would not play audio...i replaced cables and everything. Of course it was something simple!
post #114 of 4105
How is the remote? I hope it is better than the 3806 ...that one sucked.
post #115 of 4105
I purchased and set mine up today but didnt really have a chance to mess with it besides the auto room eq. So far, sounds good, but like I said - didnt put it through any serious tests. The remote is exactly the same as the 2805 (as far as I can tell). If anyone has specific questions, let me know. Right now, all my devices are patched through using component and out to the TV using HDMI. Just some info for you guys to chew on if you're curious.
post #116 of 4105
Ouch... I know it's very early, but I am a bit concerned that no one apparently has actually been able to transmit both audio and video via HDMI.
post #117 of 4105
Please guys I know it is time consuming to go thru that manual and really work out this receiver BUT PLEASE PLEASE more posts on thoughts concerning sound, good power? Maybe a comparison to the 3806 if anyone had listened to that...does it sound warm?, bright? I am using paradigm monitors fronts, cc370 center and adp370 surrounds-- thx!!

I run 4 devices through a video processor via HDMI with HDMI audio and video to the 2807 and HDMI video only to my display. You can run audio to speakers or display-not both.

I have had little play time so I recommend carefully following the Advance Setup-Part 1 instructions starting on page 44.

Argghhhhh. So I did the instant messenger thing on crutchfield at work this morning to ask about the denon 2807. Confirmed to me that they had it, free shipping was nice, as was no tax. Asked if I wanted to buy. I said I just need to speak to the wifey. Fiance said to hold off until she was done teaaching at 3. She called me then, went over it and she gave the green light. I called crutchfield and then they said it was SOLD OUT!!!!!!!AARRRGHHHH. They asked if i wanted to pre-order. They don't have any ETA as to when they will get their next batch but typically its a couple of weeks. They told me they had 20-30 in the morning. Now I'd be 3rd on the pre-order list....any other dealers out there that have it?

Jason, have you tried going to the official Denon website and typing in your zip code 90210 into the search engine to see if there are any local dealers?
