With the exception of a few extra inputs or two the Marantz models pretty much have the same features as do their Denon counter parts (7008-X4000), (6008-X3000), and (5008-X2000). And as enrico notes, any Marantz model should be able to power 4-ohm speakers at moderate volume levels. Much above that though and the unit may shut down in protection mode at which point with the Marantz 5008, 6008, or 7008 you can simply add an external amp (eg. Emotiva XPA-3).

Check the links in jdsmoothie signature.
This is an incredible Audyssey thread that soundlovr started and kbarnes701 (Keith) put an amazing amount of effort into.

Press INFO in the remote and compare your screen with the screen below:


Checked my info screen and I was in DIRECT mode not stereo. Switched it to stereo and they started to play without LFE +MAIN ON. Thanks for the help. I did notice that the sound was so much fuller in direct mode than stereo.

Recieved my 7008 today.....Got most of the basics set up and ran audyssey.....Unfortunately they don't send a manual with the reciever, I have a dvd but havn't had any time to look over it yet....How do I find the info on what the crossovers are set at, and how do I change to different listening modes? If I want to listen over the analog inputs, how do you access that.....I'm sure I'll be finding out alot in the next few days, just havn't had a chance to research anything yet....So I really can't give any thoughts on it yet.. I did notice when listening to a cd in stereo mode it said the sub is active but I'm not sure.....Also I'm noticing I'm puting the volume over 60percent or more, is that normal?
THanks,
Rick

Yes, unlike the stereos of old, the newer AVRs use a logarithmic volume scale such that 60-70 will be average listening level for most owners. Review the Audyssey 101/FAQ Guide linked in my sig to learn how to best set up Audyssey to include using either a camera tripod or mic boom stand to support the Audyssey mic. Note that you can also download the Owner's manual from the Marantz website to your laptop.

Rick, get the User Manual from this link: http://us.marantz.com/DocumentMaster/US/OwnersManualinEnglish-SR7008.pdf

The user manual is iPad friendly. I have mine in my iPad and it's better than paper.

I would also prefer an old-fashioned printed manual as well. Unfortunately, it appears that Marantz has forgone the practice of providing them to consumers for at least a year (or so) that I am aware of...

Viewing the manual on an iPad, tablet, or laptop is actually quite easy and obviously allows for word searching to more quickly find the answers to many questions. smile.gif Considering I have over 60 Owner's manuals on my laptop to review, I especially prefer this modality.

Go to SETUP/SPEAKERS/MANUAL SETUP then select SPEAKER CONFIG. for speaker size or CROSSOVERS for speaker crossover.

I got the first firmware update notification this morning in my Marantz SR7008. I'm right now in the update process.

I printed out the manual today, so much to learn, I ordered a mic stand and adapter so I can get an accurate audyssey reading...But I still can't figure out how to play back on the 7channel analog outputs from my Oppo.....Any suggestions......
Thanks,
Rick

First note that this is not a connection that is recommended as Audyssey will be disabled and the majority of Oppo owners have posted a much better audio quality using HDMI with Audyssey then the multi analog outputs. That said, simply connect them to the EXT IN connections on the AVR and select 7.1 CH IN as the INPUT MODE (p. 182).

I have started printing just those pages I want to frequently reference. Sort of making my own personalized mini owners manual.

One of the best things I've done is get that mic boom. Really seems to make for a much better calibration. Easier to use too.

Thanks for the info on the analog inputs I will look to the manual to try it......Now a couple other questions, until I get the mike stand to calibrate again, my center is way to loud. How do I manually turn just the center channel down.....I'm having a tough time trying to figure out this reciever......And I have my tv hooked up to an antenna, and I plugged the tv audio to a optic input on the reciever, but I can't figure out how to get it to play over the digital inputs.....

Was wondering if anyone here has a set of axiom speakers running on their 7008 and what your impressions were. They are 4ohm and tend to be very revealing so I was hoping to get someones opinion before upgrading to the 7008 from an older Yamaha rx v3800.

Where do you select 7.1 ch in as input mode?? Sorry but I'm having a really hard time figuring this out......I looked at that part of the manual but it really isn't making sense to me.....I know I will have to give it some time but I'm really frustrated with trying to figure out how this reciever works......My Yamaha I guess I got to know inside out so I guess that's why this is frustrating me, it doesn't seem to be laid out for easy use........I'm sure it is me right now....

The center channel can be adjusted using the Dialogue Level setting (p. 161 OM) under Audio - Dialogue Level.

Suggest you print out pp. 151-157 of the manual which provides a map of the various GUI menus. Search for the INPUT MODE which you'll find on p. 154 - INPUTS - INPUT SELECT - INPUT MODE.

Thanks for all the info I'll be on it tonight.....What are most people setting their crossovers at? After audyssey I checked it had my Sub at 120 and my fronts at 100 and my surrounds at 200....I have lowered the sub to 100 I wasn't sure if I should be at 60 or 80 for the sub, and I put my mains to 80.....
I have Golden ear triton 2's for my fronts and a SVS PB-12 nsd sub......

The general rule of thumb is to raise any crossovers set < 80Hz up to 80Hz and any set > 80Hz then leave alone as lowering them will create a gap between what has been EQ'd and what has not (ie. lowering the fronts from 100Hz to 80Hz means the 80-100Hz region is not EQ'd). The sub setting of 120Hz is the mfr default for the LPF for LFE and should be left at 120Hz to allow the full range LFE signal to pass through (note this is not related to the speaker crossovers).

That said, your Triton 2's are far more capable than the readings describe meaning you likely didn't use either a mic boom stand or camera tripod to support the mic at seated ear height. Please read through the Audyssey 101/FAQ Guide linked in my sig for more helpful information on Audyssey and how to best take advantage of it's capability.

No I didn't have the mic boom when I ran audyssey, but I did order one yesterday and the adapter for it...So I will re eq when I get the mic boom.....So are you saying for now I should leave the crossover of the sub to 120?

RickPas,

Check the subwoofer level on your Triton 2s. If you have an SPL meter, set the Triton's subwoofer control on each speaker per the instructions in the Audyssey thread, then run Audyssey. I have Triton 2s - the first time I ran Audyssey the crossovers were much higher than expected - after following the instructions in the Audyssey thread to preset the Triton's sub gain Audyssey set the crossovers at much more reasonable levels. Receiver is a Denon 5805, MultiEQ XT. BTW, I got subjectively much better results from Audyssey using a boom stand instead of a tripod - suspect that the boom stand gave me a better mic position with less reflections off the seat backs.

Mike

Rick

I'm saying the sub has no crossover as a crossover applies to the speakers. The sub has a LPF for the LFE (0.1) signal that you want to leave set at the factory default of 120Hz (Audyssey has nothing to do with this setting) so the full range LFE signal (20Hz - 120Hz) can pass through the AVR to the sub.
