Would appreciate any comment if someone has been able to get the "pass-through" working!

Yeah I tried messing around with it after that post and I don't think it's capable. Every setting I thought might have something to do with pass-through did something else instead. Oh well!

Anyone know what fuse is in the SR8002 ?

My buddy is moving and he wants to sell me his Rotel 985 MKII 5 channel amp. Would this be beneficial to my set-up (sr8002, b&w 5.1 speakers).

Unless you listen to ear-bleeding levels and you already tirpped the protection circuit in your 8002, I'm not sure what it will buy you. Also, if you hear distortion, then you're running out of headroom and extra boost in power will help. Other than that, it'll just end up being another power sucking alien.

This is what I was thinking... but my buddy was telling me differently... go figure! Thanks for the advise!

I had asked a similar question(anyone gone from a sr8002 to the 7005).Never got a response.But curious in knowing this as well.
post #4838 of 5079
Dont think thats fair comparing the sr8002 to a 7005/7055 combo.Was thinking sr7005 to the sr8002 originally.
post #4839 of 5079
I think we all just want to know if the "sound" of the 02 line is in the 05 line, let me tell you that I tried a sr6003 for a while and the sound was totally different than the sound of the 7002 , I got rid of the 6003 fast. the 6003 is not detailed and the sound stage is very narrow.Just my opinion!.
post #4840 of 5079
I was in BB tonight and looking at some of the new Marantz receivers and I put my hand on top of the SR6005 and it was VERY hot. It also kept shutting off. I suspect the BB racks with little to no ventilation didn't help.

I remember putting my hand on top of an Anthem 700 just in the front area and it only felt warm NOT hot like the Marantz.

Any opinions?

My 8001 and 8002 never really got uncomfortably hot. However, I never listened to it at ear bleeding levels. I'm not even sure I would use the word "hot" to describe, to tell you the truth.
post #4842 of 5079
Thats the first time i ever heard marantz being "hot".I've owned many marantz rec's and none were what i would call getting hot.Including my sr8002 which is on all day long.
post #4843 of 5079
I just received the 8002 receiver. I am still in the process of setting up. Encountered a problem trying to get the sub to work. It is the BIC F12 that I have had in the box for a few months.

I checked and have the latest firmware, h39.

RCA cord from purple SW out to line in on sub.

When checking tones, no sound for Sub.

Audyssey does not detect sub.

Did a system reset, still no sub sound.

This or the like has been asked several times and still no responses on the matter.
post #4846 of 5079
How is the 8002 so great, but have so many problems trying to power a sub?
post #4847 of 5079
There are a couple of places in the on-screen set up that the Sub W needs to be set to yes. Also be sure to use the sub out on the pre out panel. I had no trouble with the connections, but I did at first use the wrong SW port. page 49 of the manual has the info for the BASS MIX/Both option that will also cause confusion for some.

Any issues with running my video 1080p HDMI's through this unit? Or, should I skip the 8002 all together and run my HDMI video direct from the PS3/bluray direct to the projector?

What I don't want to do is lose picture quality/resolution by running the video signal through the 8002. In other words, does the 8002 support 1080p or will it downgrade the signal to 1080i?

Thanks for your input!
post #4849 of 5079
Do the preouts on an SR8002 bypass the xover. I am toying with using 2 small subs with the fronts which are set to Small and crossed out @ 80HZ,and then having the subs filling out the bottom in stereo.Or is this a stupid idea?Speakers are Monitor Audio RS6s and I have a Paradigm sub for the LFE.

It wont do any processing at all,so you'll be fine.
post #4851 of 5079
Just an fyi...If you enjoy the pure direct mode (which i think really enhances the midrange and vocals), but don't enjoy losing the low ends and lfe/subwoofer, connect the L/R pre outs to the sub inputs...this gives you a subwoofer channel in pure direct mode. If you want to keep your lfe line active also, use a Y cable going into the L input of the sub (have the L pre out and sub/lfe out from the receiver go into the Y with the other end go into the L input of the sub). edit- i was just told there may be issues with this (having two inputs), and to use a A/B switch...or just use the preouts, and set speakers to large with no sub.

Also, I've been trying to contact marantz to get a firmware update (i have version 33), but getting nowhere. Anyone have any tricks to get a response? I havent had any problems with my setup, but I dont have a bluray player and I know that's where the software version has issues. My warranty is up at the end of the month. Thanks.

This is strange, I got the 7002 and the 8002 and I prefer the 7002!, to me it sounds more dynamic and better sound stage with 2 channel music!, I know it must be my room and speakers, there is noway the 7002 is better.......

Hi All....picked up the sr8002 from Amazon. Still shopping for speakers...so not using yet. Also, shopping for cabinet/furniture/rack. Manual indicates the sr8002 needs 8" of clearance around it.....does this mean it should not go in one of those furniture-style HDTV cabinets that hold up the TV? Concerned because the space in those is a bit tight...compared to the less elegant racks or more open glass set-ups. Will it get too hot and shut down if it sits on a shelf under the TV in one of those furniture-style set-ups?

You can always use a triggered power and stick a PC fan on top of the receiver.

Question re sr7002 Custom Sound Profile. I want to set up a profile the turns off the SW, goes into 2CH Stereo and uses Rear Speakers only. When the kids get up at 6AM to watch TV :-) Anyway, what is the best way of doing this? Only way I think it can be done is setting up a Function and customizing the output???

Any advice?
post #4857 of 5079
can anyone comfirm what the latest firmware is for the 8002 & how do you obtain it. I have never recieved anything from marantz since i have owned it ( almost two years ).

It was sent to united radio 8/10 & they put in a new main board . I still have the same subwoofer problems. united radio said the new board should of had the latest firmware updates. thanks

The Marantz doesn't seem to have this. Anyone have a suggested mode I could use for stereo sound?

Had my 7002 for a couple of years and listen to a lot of music. In my environment, I set the surround mode to multich-movie (not music). Although the multich-music may sound best in your room. This mode is closest to the "5 channel stereo".

I also prefer to set the eq to FLAT for music.

Last I heard it was H39. I had to call Marantz to find out what to do. Their customer support page http://us.marantz.com/Contact-us.asp has phone number & service center info. You can refer to your owner's manual to see which firmware you have by pressing a couple of buttons on the 8002. Updates are service center only.

I have not read or heard anything beyond ver: H39 Firmware. My unit is H39 and has no issues at all. Note: Amazon has only 3 new units remaining in thier inventory. Probably last reputable place to buy a new SR8002 with this firmware. last price was $941
