Sounds fantastic for movies and for most music but can sound a bit shrill on some tracks. At the moment I have Audyssey disabled and that calms the occasional shrillness but I will try with the speakers directly pointed at the seat as I would prefer to have Audyssey on for the two subs.
Also, forgot to mention that the Audyssey = "L/R Bypass" setting cannot be used in a 2.1 setup.

I use multi (two) mkii's and want to experiment other speaker layouts (positions) as it may sound different. That's why I ask,I already have the speakers laid out just need to switch wires.
Right now they are setup with one mkii with side (wide) and top middle. And the other mkii with top front + top rear. All sounds great but I want to see what a difference it makes .

We aren't using the tone controls here, so Dynamic EQ isn't affected: Cinema EQ is the name of the function.

Just to make it explicit:

Depending on the design of the speakers, the tweeter's output is more or less "beamed". If the speakers aren't pointed toward the microphone, the microphone won't be able to hear the highest frequencies very well.

Speakers sound shrill after running Audyssey because the microphone can't hear the highest frequencies. As a result, the calibration software boosts them to compensate.

Exactly how much you'll have to toe in the speakers to compensate for the "beaming" depends on the details of the speaker design. Some people like to use what's called the "equal energy" orientation: point the speakers toward the opposite side of the seating, with the left speaker pointed toward the right side and vice versa. This puts the closest seat off-axis, thus reducing the audio level there, while the audio level at the farthest seat is reduced by distance. As a result, their "cross-over" point is in front of the main listening position.

ZONE2 HDMI problems

On my new SR6010 I have the 5.1-channel (MAIN ZONE) + 2-channel (ZONE2) speaker setup. For ZONE2 HDMI out I have a LCD monitor connected. Further, I have a PC connected over HDMI to Game and I have enabled Pass Through on Game.

I can't get a signal on my LCD monitor. It doesn't work with the Marantz on standby (Pass Through) neither when turned on and I select Game. Switching to my Blu-ray doesn't give a signal to the LCD monitor either.

Anybody who has seen this issue before?

Zone 2.0: Wharfedale Diamond 220

I think I know the answer, but everyone on this thread has been super helpful so I thought I would at least ask.
I love the extra features that come with Audyssey but the higher frequencies are hurting my ears (probably an issue for me, wife doesn't hear it).

Gear
AVR: SR6010 (just bought refurb from A4L)
Fronts: KEF Q100
Sub: HSU VTF-2 MK5

Issue: I ran audyssey and love dynamic eq. But after watching movies (at a low-ish volume, maybe 50%) I get ear ringing. I reviewed the curve and audyssey bumps up the higher frequencies (even on reference). On my prior AVR I would (not use audyssey) and use the graphic EQ to lower the higher frequencies (my ears specifically must have issue with higher frequencies).

Anything I can do to cut that top edge off? minidsp maybe, anything?
Or is my only option sending this avr back and getting 2016 model (might have to be denon to fit my $$$).

I paid extra to get XT32, would be a shame to turn it off.

I will be interested to find a solution also and hope someone knows how we can tame the shrillness without having to obtain a degree in Acoustical engineering first.
Try the following to help tame the excessive energy of high frequencies.

(a) Use the Audyssey Reference curve which rolls off the high frequencies, rather than Audyssey Flat curve.
(b) Do some energy trading as suggested by Selden Bell by angling the speakers appropriately to the Main Listening Position (MLP).
(c) Use a boom stand + mic holder to get consistent and repeatable results when running Audyssey.
(d) Behind the MLP, place some cushions / towels / pillows/ wall rugs to help absorb the high frequencies. (Do this after running Audyssey)
(e) Experiment between the tight single seat mic pattern vs. the wide seat sofa pattern.
(f) Use the Reference Level Off (RLO) to minimize the how heavy Audyssey will compensate when listening below reference level.

1. HDMI standby pass through only works with the main zone monitor output (ie. no Zone 2 output).
2. In order to pass a signal to the Zone 2 HDMI monitor output, Zone 2 must be powered ON and the source selected to pass to Zone 2.

Thanks! 1 explains why that does not work. 2 still puzzels me. I turn on Zone2 and select Game where my PC is connected over HDMI but nothing is shown on the screen. I do get a picture with the same HDMI cable directly from the PC to the monitor.

The LCD monitor must be set to a standard TV resolution (eg. 1920x1080p) in order for the video signal to pass from the AVR.

It is an ACER 21" LCD 1920x1080 monitor I have. I think I bought it in 2009 or 2010. Could it be too old / incompatible?

Thanks Steve,
I will try your suggestions and have decided to make up some absorbent panels to hang on the walls and ceilings to try and tame those high frequencies which I believe are being reinforced by the room. I need to do a lot of reading before I make up the panels though as it will be the first time that I have tried to treat a room

Possibly. Although HTPCs can have video passing related issues, as long as the Blu Ray player is connected via HDMI and the Deep Color Output = OFF on the Blu Ray player, it should pass through to the LCD monitor.

Another complication is that receivers will not generate any output if the display device is not HDCP compatible.

When you connect your PC to the monitor, check to see if the video driver recognizes it has being HDCP compatible. Nvidia drivers have a specific page in their menu which shows this information. I dunno how Intel and AMD display that info.

HEY GUYS...need some quick advise here...Should I get the SR5010 or the NR1607 at the same price? The SR510 is 'recertified' , while the 1607 is 'certified refurbished'... which one would you get, and besides power output, what are the major diffs????

My PC has Intel on-board graphics, not sure how to see if my ACER is HDCP compatible. I have now discovered that I can get a picture from both PC and BD-player. But only if I disconnect the HDMI cable on the ACER and connects it again. It does not "wake-up" by it self no matter the order of power on. Strange!?

Another issue I am facing is that I want the PC and BD sound to be passed to the ZONE2 HDMI connected ACERs speaker - not to my ZONE2 (regular stereo) speakers as they are in another room but that is what is happening. I hope there is a HDMI setting I have not understod correctly yet to fix this?

Your ACER can likely only accept PCM 2.0 audio (check ACR owner's manual to confirm) so if DD/DTS 5.1 audio is being passed, there would be no audio heard through the ACER's speakers.

It starts to work because you're forcing the devices to redo the HDMI/HDCP handshake. Powering the Acer off and on (using wall power) should have the same effect.

If you haven't already, you might also try switching the receiver to different (unused) inputs for a few seconds. The PC's internal speaker (if it has one) should make noises as it looses and regains connectivity.

Make sure all of your devices, including the Acer, have up-to-date firmware and drivers. HDMI/HDCP handshaking can be problematic due to buggy firmware and software.

Unplugging and plugging cables while they're "hot" usually is discouraged. While they'll usually survive doing it a few times, it's too easy to damage the output drivers by accidentally grounding them to adjacent conductors.

Zone 2 is Zone 2 -- there's no way for them to have different audio, if that's what you mean. Receivers which implement an HDMI output controlled separately from the analog outputs call them different zones, with the HDMI output often called Zone 3.

Does that mean that as long as I have my stereo speakers connected to Surround Back R/L (which is for ZONE2 according to the manual) the AVR will out sound to them no matter what? I mean I can't choose to output sound through HDMI/ZONE2 (which is what I want)?

If you've configured the AmpAssign mode which causes the Surround Back speaker binding posts to be associated with Zone2, then...

If you select a stereo PCM HDMI input signal for Zone 2, if it's present at all, the audio should be present both at the Zone 2 stereo analog and Zone 2 HDMI outputs. If you select a stereo analog input, then only the analog Zone2 outputs should be active.

Thanks, but I don't understand if I can do *something* (in the setup) to use HDMI/ZONE2 with sound send to the monitor while still having the stereo speakers connected as mentioned to play music when I prefer that in ZONE2. Sorry if I am being unclear.

Zone 5.1: Dali Phantom IKON x4, Qln 500 & Sub12
Zone 2.0: Wharfedale Diamond 220
Separate 2.0: ELAC AM-180

Whichever receiver input signal you've selected to go to Zone 2 will come out on both HDMI and analog outputs of Zone2. You can't have one input sent to the Zone2 HDMI and a different input sent to Zone2 analog outputs (RCA or speaker binding posts).

However, the input selected for Zone2 can be different from the input selected for Zone1 (aka the Main Zone).


Edited to add: it seems to me that what you're saying is that you really want a receiver which can provide three independent audio/video outputs. That's called a 3 Zone receiver. 3 Zones are not provided by the SR60xx models. You'd need to upgrade to an SR70xx model.

Greetings everyone...

I bought the av7702mkII on a Black Friday sale last fall but it's been sitting in a box until I finished pulling wires in the room.. Wire pulling finally finished last week (yay!) and I'm beginning hookup... I'm coming from an older Marantz SR8001... Since I'm migrating to a new prepro, I'm trying to get "up to date" quickly so that I can go into this hookup phase with some advanced notice of currently known issues.

As with most things, however, there are hundreds of pages of discussion regarding all sorts of stuff, and it's somewhat unwieldy, to say the least, to glean specific information from...

Questions:
  • I'm coming from an SR8001, which is a bit long in the tooth... (trying to learn as much as possible as quickly as possible!)
    • Anticipated use is around 50/50 music/movies .... both for casual entertaining as well as group movie nights as well as critical 2ch listening (when the family is out of town, lol)...
  • I'm not finding too many issues being discussed -- does this model really has so few problems? (if so, great!!)
  • My plans include the below ... are there any major issues around any of the following functionality that I should be aware of?
    • audyssey (5.2ch setup) -- though I do have two spare front ceiling speakers wired but unused -- atmos??
      • this was a big push to get the upgrade; XT32 with my dual subs
      • previously used BFD (behringer dsp1124) to do dual-sub integration BEFORE single-sub-channel audyssey was engaged
    • airplay (from iphones and ipads)
      • Since the SR8001 came into our home, we've almost all got iDevices now, and I am very interested in wifi/blutooth streaming from them
    • 1080p/24 and 1080p/60 max
      • Panasonic 50g10 plasma still going strong, love it, love it, love it.. no reason to change (yet) ...
    • hdradio
      • public radio stations and others
    • multi-zone audio
      • planning to run some wireless speakers to the back yard (sweet!), and maybe even to the master bathroom?
  • I already have other equipment in the rack to handle most streaming audio/video...
    • oppo bd80
    • TiVo roamio w/ netflix and Amazon Prime and Pandora and ...
    • ...
I know I got a great prepro, been using Marantz for decades ... (started with a model 7t) ... just not sure if I am going to find any surprises in the firmware or the implementation when I go to start actually using it..

Thanks in advance for any help/advice!

cheers,
..dane

A few suggestions:

Connect it to your home network using ethernet rather than WiFi. Your router will forward your iDevice connections. Lots of people have marginal WiFi networking which can cause serious problems for firmware updates.

Use the "Setup Assistant" to test and connect your speakers, including the Front Heights you're currently not using.

If you haven't already, please take the time to look through the Audyssey 101/FAQ. It'll help you to get a good calibration. The instructions in the pre/pro's owner's manual are pathetically inadequate.

All 2015 D+M models (including the SR7010) are HDMI 2.0a (HDR10); however, will not pass Dolby Vision without receiving a firmware update which currently is only scheduled for the newer 2016 and 2017 models in early 2018.

@audiodane , I previously used Behringer BFD PEQs but now have two collecting dust as I am very happy with the Audyssey SubEQ (after increasing the LFE level +6dB post Audyssey).

The 7702mkII is a great pre/pro and considered superior to even the AV8801 by most.

Hi Selden -- thanks for your advice. Yes, I will most certainly connect via hardwire Ethernet. I should have specified this. I am using an equipment rack and am fearful that antennas on the back of the 7702mkii will not work well in a big metal cage. Also thanks for your audyssey link! I will have a look at it later tonight! I recall not having too much trouble with it on the SR8001, but maybe I made a mistake and never realized it. I do recall being fairly pleased with it -- but yes, I will read the guide!

Thanks Mark -- I'm super excited about it. I was disappointed the other day when I went to open the box and realized it was a mkii -- I had clearly mis-remembered and thought that I had purchased a 7703 ... alas, it is good to know the mkII is not poopoo'd on in light of the newer 7703. So you can increase the LFE level even after running audyssey? I think in the SR8001 I was unable to tweak that post-audyssey. Very cool to know...


cheers,
..dane

You're actually increasing the Subwoofer Level not the LFE, and this is possible with any Denon/Marantz model that features Audyssey using the Manual Setup - Test Tones - Subwoofer.
