Can anyone confirm that spotify connect works on the SR7008 with the latest firmware? I am looking at buying a used one just to run some outdoor equipment, but I need two zones and spotify connect is needed.

FYI,
I did buy a used SR7008 and after firmware update Spotify Connect works very well when connected to my home network.

Marantz SR6008 front right channel issue

Hello. Hoping someone can provide me some guidance to avoid a trip to a repair shop. I have a Marantz SR6008, bought new in 2014. Its front right channel is presenting a couple of issues: low volume and distorted sound. I am sure it’s the A/V because I switched the front speakers and the issue moved to the front left speaker - front right functioning as it should. I tried hard reset multiple times and cutting power as well. Did not work. There is no sign of rust or corrosion anywhere. The unit looks like new. I opened the unit, but given my complete lack of experience with A/V decided not to disassemble it.

Besides the front right channel, everything else works like a charm.

Any suggestion on what could be the problem and potential solution?

Marantz SR6008 issue

My Marantz 6008 shows the display but apart from that it has stopped working. I have my Oppo BDP plugged into it and nothing is showing up on TV. Same for the cable tv box...I have HTBP via Naim UnitiStar but nothing is working. I checked all the HDMI cables and they are working fine.

Options button when pressed on Marantz remote, shows nothing. I can toggle between different inputs like CBL/SAT, BlueRay, AUX etc. but nothing shows up on TV. For the sound mode, it's only picking stereo and if I press MDAX, it shows not available.

Pls help.

First troubleshooting step would be doing a "soft reset" by simply powering off every device and AVR and unplugging their respective power and HDMI cables for 10 minutes. Plug all back in and power on the TV first, pause 5 seconds, AVR, pause 5 seconds, source. If no joy, then refer to your Owner's manual and do a microprocessor reset.

If still no joy, then repair or replace with a more current model that can pass 4k.

Does anything work that does not go thru the HDMI? like radio FM or network web radio?

Hello jdsmoothie (and others here willing to provide advice)

I took the receiver to a repair shop a couple of weeks ago... today they told me that they need to replace 15 transistors. Parts would cost $105 (according to them the transistors would be bought from Marantz) and $250 for labor, totalizing $350 to fix it. Sounds like quite a bit of money on transistors and quite a bit of labor to replace them, but I do not have experience to really assess that. Can anyone provide some guidance here? Does the fix price seem right or not?

Thanks!

No comment on repair cost; however, considering a used SR6008 can be purchased for not much more than that, you would be better served putting that $350 towards a more current model with XT32 and newer features (eg. 4k).

It's actually been a few months since it has happened, but today it did it, I turned it off, and back on, and it happened 4 times. I've had same results after an unplug and even a hard reset where I had to go through setup again.

Any thoughts?
Any luck figuring this out? My 7008 is doing same thing. Appreciate it.

OK thanks. Mine won’t stay on longer than 10 seconds. If I get it fixed I’ll let you know.

One thing I have found out with the 7008 is if it does shut down, and it seems there are a lot of things that can cause it to shut down, is I must wait at least 5 minutes or more to start it again, if not it will go right back out. This is of course if the shut down was caused by something not physical like a loose speaker connection.
Mine will even shut down if someone turns it off and I come in a turn it back on too soon, What is too soon? Even 15 minutes.


After several years of use, other times it has shut down on me:
When I turned on the TV and the 7008 at the same time.
When I plugged it into a new UPS.
When I turned it on before the computer hooked to it had booted up and that device was selected.
When I turned it on too fast after an update software.
When I plugged in a new subwoofer (nothing was wrong,) I just had to wait a few minutes more for some reason.
I can't even remember all the times it shut down. But each time I have to wait at least 5 10 minutes.
I now go ahead and unplug it each time.
I love the unit despite of this.

Music, more music.

OPPO UDP203 connected to SR5008. Peculiar audio dropout issue.

Can anyone shed light on this puzzling issue please:

I have HDMI1 out from an OPPO 203 connected directly to my LG TV 55E8 ARC in, and OPPO HDMI2 out (audio only) to the SR5008 AVR.
The OPPO HDMI Audio format is set to Bitstream and the SACD Output it is set to PCM (both as per OPPO recommendations).

All UHD BD, BD, DVDv, DVDa play just fine in the HDMI connection mode to the SR5008, however there is an issue with SACD and CD playback.
The problem is that within about 2-5 minutes of SACD or CD playback, a single short audio interruption (dropout) occurs. Once it happens, everything is OK until the end of play. If I insert another disc then it repeats, again only once.
Needless to say that the issue is not replicated through the multichannel analogue outputs for SACD playback, or digital (optical) output for CD playback from the OPPO to the corresponding inputs on the Marantz.
It makes no difference if the TV is on or off, or the HDMI cable to the TV is disconnected during SACD and CD playback.

It seems like an HDMI handshake issue between OPPO and Marantz, but not sure as all the video discs and DVDa have no issue whatsoever with HDMI connection.

I have asked OPPO to look at this for me, and have reported it and supplied a log file to them about 16 months ago.
They are dragging their feet as they have wound down to minimal engineers, and will drop out of support completely in the next few months. They have acknowledged an attempt at fixing the issue in firmware, but have not succeeded.

I am interested to know if anyone else has experienced this and is there a resolution from the SR5008 perspective?

Marantz SR5008 RDS

Sorry I post this here, I am not using this forum frequently, I apologize if it's the wrong spot.

My question is this: anyone knows how to select the RDS function on the FM? When I select option, while the input is on "Tuner", there is no such function on the list (no RDS, PTY, TP, Radio Text). Are there different versions with/without this functionality? By the way, located in Canada.

On another topic: I bought this used, and didn't (still don't) know much about its functionality. I was a bit concerned that it was hot/warm even during standby, until I realized that the zone2 was on. I think I've seen someone complaining about being hot while in standby, that's why I mentioned this.

I thought RDS Radio data was automatically displayed as long as you selected an HD FM station that provided that. There is something in the manual about HD1 or HD2 signals and options pages 70-74.

Thanks for your reply. I thought that too, but looks like this model does not have such functionality (although as per manual it should have). By the way, the reference to RDS is on pages 64-66 in the manual.
And as I mentioned, I don't see any RDS reference at all, when I check the option menu (that shows up on the TV display, when tuner input is selected). Wonder if it has to do with the fact that it's a Canadian model.

My manual is a PDF file.
I checked my tuner and discovered this for a local HD FM station, on the tuner there was one channel, but on the internet radio the same station had 2 regular HD signals and one HD2 signal, the HD2 signal shows the data. I don't use the tuner option much at all so am going to research more. I am in the US.

Marant SR 6008 grounding issue, HELP Plz !

I am having a very strange problem with my SR 6008 all of a sudden. My wall sockets grounding is perfect as I do not have any grounding issue when I connect my TV to that socket. However if I connect my SR 6008 AVR to that same socket, my AVR gets grounding issue. I know this because, once my AVR is powered, if I place a tester on exterior screws of the AVR, there is power/current on it. Also when I tested all the speakers output, there is power coming out from both +ve and -ve (Black/Red) outputs as a result if I try to play some music there is too much static noise along with music.

The AVR's power cable is fine as I tested it too and there is phase / power coming out only from 1 phase side, no power comes out from the cables ground or neutral side.

I have attached photos of the problem so you can best understand the issue.

Can anyone tell me what the problem is and how I can solve it.

That is a scary looking problem you have there and I would be very careful working on this yourself. You shouldn't have any voltage potential difference between the case of your AVR and ground. I don't know what the other side of your probe is connected to but it can't be the same ground as the AVR. I know you said that you tested the AVR power cable but I would try another power cable. I would also test the AVR without anything else plugged into it in case you are having some strange problem with another device on another AC outlet with a different ground level? Try plugging the AVR into a different AC outlet to see if the problem stays with the AVR or the outlet. Perhaps there is an internal problem in the AVR that has disconnected the grounding inside of the AVR from the case... but all of this sounds potentially very dangerous and should be looked at by an electronic tech...

Good luck and be very careful!

I would also test the AVR without anything else plugged into it in case you are having some strange problem with another device on another AC outlet with a different ground level? Try plugging the AVR into a different AC outlet to see if the problem stays with the AVR or the outlet. Perhaps there is an internal problem in the AVR that has disconnected the grounding inside of the AVR from the case... but all of this sounds potentially very dangerous and should be looked at by an electronic tech...

Good luck and be very careful!
Thanks for your reply. I tried 4 different cables and I had nothing hooked up to the receiver. Also to the same socket I had connected my TV and there was no issue at all. There seems to be a problem in the internals of the receiver only.

I did something else, I had connected a separate wire from the screws that you see in the photos and grounded it to another socket separately. This solved the earthing issue but the sound from my speakers were still bad, that is, I was getting a lot of weird static noises along with the music I tried to play. So something is definitely screwed in my AVR now.

Hi All,

I have recently developed problem with internet radio on my SR6008. If I pick any of the options in internet radio I just get a ticker tape announcement saying "Go to marantzradio.com for further information about vTuner". It even plays this back as speech through the speakers! This happens no matter what I select, except for "Recently Played". In that section, internet stations play back fine!

This has only just started happening recently. Though potentially coincides with me turning the power off at the wall when I was testing some new smart meters. But it's connects to the internet fine, and works for the few stations in recently played.

Edit: Looking at the website, it seems they want $3 a year in order to use the internet radio indexing, so I guess that is it.

Correct. vTuner is no longer supported as it was replaced by TuneIn on more current models.

I haven’t had my 6008 connected to the net for about a year. It was connected through a co axel convertor back when I had cable tv. I asked for a direct ethernet cable that ran from my router, through the attic, and terminating behind my ent. center on the wall. The isp at the time was Verizon and this “Installer” said he didn’t go into attics. I am going to call and see if the new isp will do it or hire someone myself. I have no idea what updates I may have missed.

I dont know what updates you may expect...but with an avr this age I would be skeptical about subjecting it to bricking. my 7008 going strong w/out updates. now if hdmi got updated by firmware I might give it a go for sure.

I know you know a lot about this but I thought the 6008 was 4K compatible ? It says (in my manual) the 6008 will let the 4K signal pass through the unit unchanged.

I have no experience with 4k but I thought it was a higher quality picture and that was it.
