I don't have digital downloaded surround music, only 2 channel, the way God intended.
again, thanks for your responses. as far as them being behind the times, they are in as much as them not supporting large HD's of either NTFS or exFAT. like I said, my cheapo Onkyo in the bedroom does.


I do still so love this pre-amp. it excels and shows itself off for my 7.1.4 movie uses which is most important for me. I already have a dedicated 2 channel system, but, it is nice to listen to the same music on my HT.

I'm close to buying a suite of Marantz hardware for a new theater room. I need the gear by July 11, when the build starts. I'm looking at the 7702mkII, two 7055 5-ch amps, and a 7025 2-ch amp to drive 7.x.4 Atmos speaker system.

Marantz AV7702mkII
Marantz MM7055 x 2
Marantz MM7025

Before I buy, is there any reason why I'd be better off buying the Denon 6200 or 7200 for the processor and possibly partial amplification? I can save a little money going with the 7200 and a single amp; but it seems since I'm going all-in on a theater room, going the separates route made sense.

Thanks

I wouldn't say that the processor in the denon's are better or worse than the Marantz, I would say, this, if you want to have true raw power, plenty of headroom for just about whatever and not have to worry, then you are going to do one of two things, buy the Marantz and go complete seperates with dedicated external power amps with true WPC continuously rated or go with the denon receiver and either use it's internal amps or get external amps for it, of course then your wasting power with the receiver amp doing nothing if your going to power everything with external amps.


the choice is up to you. I have been complete seperates for years and for my main HT, I can't see going back to a receiver. right now, I have everything I want (minus the USB/HD thing ) I want for my ATMOS/DTS:X listening pleasure and I'm ready for later down the road when I buy a 4K monitor. I never ever worry or wonder am I driving the speakers too hard or worry about clipping. I have 2 dedicated external power amps, one 5 channel, one 7 channel. my front 3 are 4ohm speakers and they are driven by that 5 channel amp as easily as a hot knife goes through soft butter! 6 of the 8 surround channels are driven by the 7 channel amp with the remaining two (SL&R) driven from the 5 channel amp.


I have peace of mind and never, ever worry about powering the speakers no matter the level, no matter how long they are driven at said levels and for 2 channel music, I run the fronts Full Range no sub again, not breaking a sweat.


i'll also say the picture output from my Marantz is beautiful, the sound is so much better and the soundstage size and separation of the channels is huge and noticeable all to the better. I am so happy to have moved to the Marantz. I use to have an Onkyo 5507 pre-amp, it was good, but, it can't compare with the 7702mkii.


think about it and do your research before you buy so you make the purchase you can live with. either setup you recommended can and will work. the question is which one can/will work for you!?!


also, i see your in Loudon, i'm in Alexandria/Fairfax County; small world, huh!?! good luck buddy, keep us posted.

The video works properly. I've tried different HDMI cables, and different inputs on the MKII to no avail. I even have a spare A3 and tried that one as well with the same problem. The audio settings in the A3 are set to PCM for HDMI. I've tried PCM and bitstream over optical but then only get stereo over the optical connection. I have no problems getting audio over HDMI from my cable box, XBO, or BR player. Is there some quirk with the HDMI on the Toshiba so that it doesn't work with a modern PrePro?

Any thoughts?

Thank you for help,

howdy, I have a Toshiba HD-DVD player HD-A35 I have it connected to the same pre-amp you have and it works perfectly. I have included 2 pictures, one showing the player audio settings I use and one showing a screen capture of the 300 HD-DVD movie showing it getting Dolby TrueHD. that movie also played just fine with Dolby Digital +. also, the only cable I have from the player to the pre-amp is a single hdmi.




hope this helps.

Check out Outlaw Audio or try ATI amplifiers (the U.S. oem company that builds most of Outlaw's amps). They're great quality (or have been) - much better than Emotiva - without being super expensive and made in the U.S.A. I have the 7702 mkII and have no real qualms about the processor so far (knock on keyboard) except for the fact I wish it could render more than 11.1 of object audio!

The least costly would be to re-purpose an older receiver you might still have laying around, otherwise, the most often recommended 2CH amp is the AudioSource AMP100 (recently discontinued and replaced by the AMP100VS).

Not for power reasons, no (although the X7200WA and a 2CH amp would be comparable), however, the X7200WA is the "flagship" D+M AVR and should provide better audio quality.

When I first set up my 7010 I was having issues with dropouts of audio and/or video. In my case it was related to the HDMI cables and it may be worth you exploring that possibility.
I tried several combinations until everything was fine.

Hi,
I have a 7010 and although I get Internet Radio with sound I do not get the option to click on Pandora or Sirius. I would expect this to be an option when I press Online Music but all I get is Favourites , Internet Radio and Media Server.

Yes, a reboot would lose all settings if not previously saved using the Web Control feature (p. 145 Owner's manual), however, doing the reset might resolve the issue. I would also try rebooting your router as well.

solarrdadd,

Thank you for looking at your settings. On my A3 I have the Digital SPDIF OUT and HDMI OUT settings as you have them. I don't have a DIGITAL DIRECT or SPEAKER SETTING under my menu. It says my firmware is 1.1 and it didn't find a connection when I tried to update it and I couldn't find he firmware on the Toshiba web page. I wonder if it makes a difference that your A35 can bitstream lossless audio codecs vs the A3 only decoding and sending them out as LPCM?

Thank you for checking out your settings,

Basa14

Thanks for the feedback. That's part of what I was wondering: whether the 7200 or 7702mkII was a better processor.

With the 7200, it's otherwise a conventional AVR, having the equivalent of 300W shared by all its outputs; whereas separates provides 150W to each channel.

Bench test of the 4520CI the X7200WA replaced is 2CH @ 172W, 5CH @ 122W, 7CH @109W … 8-ohm @0.1% THD

Your PC could be going into sleep mode and thus losing EDID info needed to keep the handshake of HDMI alive. The Genfen HDMI detective is a device that sits between the PC and pre/pro/receiver that is a good work around. This is a known as the man in the middle device.

New SR-7010 Owner Update

I wanted to thank everyone for the various advise. I feel that I'm in a sweet spot now at 7.1.4 (3 LTE / 1 full range subs). I was blown away with the Blues Brother's soundtrack. Very impressed with everything. And the Polk M5 sitting in for the DefTech CLR3000 while it's at the hospital is doing far better of a job than I think it has the right to as the middle speaker. Best Buy has the newest model for $1000 but they didn't even seem to know that it needed to be plugged in to show off the bass. This is at a Magnolia store and they have the 7010 so I could get a great demo yet I digress.

A friend that has the same AVR tested Midway for me. Let's face it, everyone should own this title. It's one of those movies that when it comes on at 2am on commercial TV it's hard for me to peel away. While not an issue with the AVR per say, I'm going to discuss the solution because it just looks weird and I think it's a unique experience.

Midway is available in 2.1 and 2.0. 2.1 to get the "Sensurround" effect from long ago. What you see on the info popup is that the signal is 5.1. My friend intimates that there is no such thing as 2.1 and therefore in order to do 2.1 they take up 5.1 in the signal. Since the channels' signals are present, the 7010 does not try to upmix. Or maybe it does but it's upmixing silence to multi-channel silence.

The answer is to switch to 2.0. This sounds so obvious now but I was getting lost mostly with the Movie button trying to get the AVR to do what I wanted. 2.0 without messing with the button gives DTS-HD + Neural:X.

The unforgivable part of this saga is that the back case says that DTS/DOLBY can provide 5.1 channels which set my expectations to hear 5.1. Thing is, like the lying back case for Ender's Game 4K is that they didn't say the title I bought could do it.. It's like a PSA or something. Why would you expect Midway to be 5.1 discreet? Just because we printed it on the case? PEASANT! (though philosophically speaking I am get 5.1 channels but I wouldn't call silence "discreet")

I remain significantly appalled at D&M's "support" that I plan on zapping a letter all the way to the top. I've never done that before. It isn't a misunderstanding when no tshoot steps are ever given and when I asked for a new tech the answer was I asked too many questions. Maybe that's their policy and not the tech acting rouge.

I'm sure I'll be back soon. I just wanted to show my gratitude now.

To do a reboot, also known as a "soft reset", unplug the receiver from wall power for about 10 minutes. This does not affect Audyssey. This often clears up strange glitches. Also see below.

Make sure you've configured the network settings in the receiver. See the owners' manuals: sr5010: page 63 et seq; sr7010: page 97 et seq.

First, try a "soft reset" (see above).

If that doesn't work, the next thing to try is a "microprocessor reset" as described in the manual. (sr5010: page 251; sr7010: page 327) It's usually best to do a half dozen, one right after the other. That makes sure the receiver's FLASH memory is fully cleared. Sometimes a single reset doesn't clear it fully. This does erase your Audyssey settings, so you first should save the receiver's current configuration to your computer so you can restore it later. (sr5010: page 146; sr7010, page 186) For the save/restore to work properly you also have to disable "network on in standby" and then cycle the receiver's power. Even so, you should verify that the downloaded configuration file does not contain all zeros. This type of glitch occasionally happens.

If that doesn't work, the final thing to try is a "network reset". Like the microprocessor reset, it clears the FLASH memory, too. You'll have to reconfigure the network afterward before you can reload the configuration. This reset is not described in the manual, but is at the top of this thread. For the SR5010, see post #4. For the SR7010, see post #6.

If that doesn't work, contact Marantz. You'll probably have to return the receiver for repair or replacement.

Owners' manuals are available at http://manuals.marantz.com/sr5010/na/en/ and http://manuals.marantz.com/sr7010/na/en/

Hello.
Cant find anything online really, so here it is.
Bougjt a marantz 5010, at first audysey configuration, receiver almost blew all.my speakers sending some ridicolous loud "siren like" noise.
Took it to service under warfanty and they teplaced HDMI board.
But now, after start it persistently wants to fo USB update, got it somehow to menu ipdate firmware, but after reboot same thing, again wanfs to do update over usb amd gives a CY920 ERROR on builtin display.
What the hell is going on, im gonna lose it if im gonna have to diantle everything again and take it back again, it took them 3 weeks to replace the board.
Spend whole night last night to hook all the cables up and do cable managment.

Did you buy it "new" or "refurb"? Refer to post 4 of this thread and do a few microprocessor resets. If still no joy, back for warranty repair.

Hi - I have a Fire TV (latest model), a Roku 4, a Marantz 6010, and a new display: LG OLED65G6P.

4k videos from both the Fire TV and the Roku 4, when sent through the Marantz 6010 drive the new display nuts. When I connect the Fire TV and the Roku 4 directly to the display, bypassing the Marantz 6010, I do not have this problem.

There's some sort of HDMI or HDCP hand-shaking issue going on here between the new LG display and the Marantz, but the situation is rather frustrating. This makes watching 4k video with the system virtually impossible!

Has anyone else run into such issues between Marantz and LG? If so, has anyone had any luck resolving them?

Thanks!

This guy in the Denon thread is having a similar problem with his OLED TV as well. You may want to share details, and contact both Denon and Marantz regarding the issue.

Hi,
I don't have the LG (but would really like one) but I did have a lot of trouble getting my Sony TV and Marantz 7010 to get on well together.
I found that rebooting everything in the system would help after any changes but only really solved the issue after swapping various HDMI cables in and out.
I know it is often said that HDMI cables are all equal and I believed that until I got the Marantz and then I found that some worked and some didn't and it was unrelated to the cost of the cable.
The ones that didn't work with the Marantz worked with a PC to the TV. Odd but true.
Beg, steal or borrow some cables and try swapping things about. It's worth a try but may not be your issue.
Good Luck.

Make sure you've configured the network settings in the receiver. See the owners' manuals: sr5010: page 63 et seq; sr7010: page 97 et seq.

First, try a "soft reset" (see above).

If that doesn't work, the next thing to try is a "microprocessor reset" as described in the manual. (sr5010: page 251; sr7010: page 327) It's usually best to do a half dozen, one right after the other. That makes sure the receiver's FLASH memory is fully cleared. Sometimes a single reset doesn't clear it fully. This does erase your Audyssey settings, so you first should save the receiver's current configuration to your computer so you can restore it later.

Thanks for all the info Selden. It is very much appreciated.

I've tried 4 different cables, from 4 different manufacturers, all rated '4k' 'premium' etc. No luck with any of them. But thanks for the idea!

Here is what I posted in the Denon thread:

I'm having the same issue with this new LG TV, but with a Marantz 6010. I have tried 4 different cable manufacturers. I spoke to someone on the phone in tech support who wants to say it's "double upconversion" happening. I pointed out I was feeding from a 4k 60fps source.

He agreed to raise a trouble ticket to engineering and see what response he gets. We'll see. I did tell him about both Marantz and Denon receivers showing this problem.

What is frustrating is having to work through all the 'obvious' things (did you try soft resetting the unit) - yes, yes, yes I did to all of them. I understand why they have to ask the questions, though.

He said he will get back to me via email or phone. We'll see. I don't expect anything swift, as I am betting (I may be wrong!) that the engineers will push back and say "this must be user error!" unless they start hearing this from everywhere, and the sample size (this TV + Marantz/Denon) is too small.

OK, I will still try the No.3 step of reseting network.

son of a b.. this is second marantz ina row with problems. (both were B stock) allthough as new looking. Not buying refurbished anymore, but the price is so tempting that its still worth dealing with warranty. Better that then buying something used with no warranty.

(1) Soft reset. Un-plug the power chord for approximately 10 minutes.

(2) Microprocessor reset. Also known as the factory reset.
Turn OFF the unit
Turn ON the unit and simultaneously press the M-DAX and ZONE 2 SOURCE buttons.
Wait until the display starts flashing in 1 second intervals, then release the two buttons.

(3) Network reset.
Turn OFF the unit
Turn ON the unit and simultaneously press the ZONE 2 ON/OFF and ZONE 2 SOURCE buttons.
Wait until the display starts flashing in 1 second intervals, then release the two buttons.

I have a question about the pre outs and subwoofer outs on these marantz units. If someone could help I would appreciate it very much.

1. On the models with front left and right pre outs, are those pre outs and the subwoofer out both "post volume" if you will? That is to say, if ran a 2.1 system with a separate amp running off the front left and right pre outs.....and plugged a powered sub into the the sub out.....could I raise the volume on the marantz av and have the volume of all three speakers (sub, fr, fl) go up? I wouldn't have to adjust the separate amp and sub level any time I wanted to change the volume right?

The reason I ask is I did some reading on hooking powered subs up to pre outs on a receiver that has no sub out and there were a lot of people who claimed that the preouts would be unaffected by volume change on the receiver. Sorry if this is an obvious question but I just want to know for sure.

Thanks in advance.

With Marantz equipment, the main zone pre-outs, including the sub, have variable output levels controlled by the volume knob.

The Zone 2 and Zone 3 outputs (available on the AV and SR models) can be set to be either fixed or variable. See, for example, page 223 of the owner's manual for the SR5010, which is available at http://manuals.marantz.com/sr5010/na/en/

Thanks.

I realize the 7200W + 2x7055 is the pretty much the same cost as the 7702mkII + 2x7055 + 7025.

Do current shipping 7200 units come with the HDCP 2.2 upgrade pre-installed or is that still a $150(?) after-purchase upgrade?
