Hi friends,
One of my friend bought brand new Marantz SR6011 from Europe and bring to India. It has European warranty not worldwide warranty. After opening the receiver out of box and plugged it in india its powered on but not giving sounds or any signals from output connectors. So he tried to firmware update to this receiver but it stucks in retriving firmware option. So guys can you tell me how to solve this problem? I ask this because he offered me this faulty receiver at very less price and I really like to have this but only in complete working condition.

Following youtube video was uploaded by user.

Is the AVR connected to your modem or router either wired or wirelessly? Refer to post 5 of this thread and do a Network Reset.

Hello everyone

I am new to the forums but have been a long time lurker. I just recently bought the SR7011 and had few questions. I’m probably sure it’s been answered however going through 400 pages on the iPhone can be hard ( I did go back a couple pages though before I posted).

So far I like the unit however a few questions on the settings. I ran Audyssey and I see the results in the speaker section under Audyssey setup. I did not agree with some of the settings so I went to the manual settings and changed them. My question is how do I know those manual settings are applied and not the Audyssey settings? I changed the crossovers and levels but I’m not sure if it is using the Audyssey settings or my input.

Also when I hit the options button while watching a movie it brings up another menu where I can adjust the level for each channel again. They are all at 0 db and I can then adjust them? I am confused now as to what settings are being applied now? If I adjust the levels now in the options do they over ride my manual settings or the Audyssey settings?

There is also another setting in the audio section just for the subwoofers to adjust the bass but again is it on top of the manual settings or is it another level? I leave that off because I figure the other settings should be enough. Seems a little confusing to me to add so many adjustments when you have no idea what is being applied.

I am coming from an Integra reciever for about 10 years now (I wanted to upgrade to 4K pss through and most importantly Atmos) and it was pretty much straight forward. Once the Audyssey was done on that unit you just adjust it and done. It would apply to all speakers.

I guess I’m just confused with all the options that I don’t know what is being used and what levels? Again sorry for the long post and apologize if this has been addressed before. Thank you for all you input and time.

For the Audyssey - Speakers-audyssey-manual setup. After making the individual changes (crossover, distance, etc.) just hit the back button and the settings are saved. Return to main settings menu and Audio-Audyssey - These are the controls for various other audyssey options (dynamic volume, Dynamic EQ, etc.) You can either google Audyssey for answer and recommendations about settings for different sources (movies, internet radio, etc.) or call Marantz and ask for the assistance. Also look here

1. Any changes in Manual Setup override the settings stored in the Audyssey Setup and become the new Audyssey setting; however, the original settings remain in Audyssey Setup so you can return to them should you decide to do so at a later date.
2. Yes. They are either added/subtracted (+/- 12dB) from the settings in Manual Setup.
3. Which is still true today; however, now you have additional settings to apply for each specific source should you choose to do so.

Thanks for the answers JD. I did not know that it adds in the options section. Pretty cool because not all movies are recorded that same so it’s nice to change on the fly and not mess up your original settings.

I followed your other instructions of also increasing the sub settings by +5db over Audyssey and it does make a huge difference. I’m not hurting the subs in the long run of I push it that hot? Also do you recommend the air cool fans for the receivers because it does seem to run very hot at times.

Thanks again for the help.

Adding an AC Infinity Aircom cooler certainly wouldn't hurt, but if the top of the AVR isn't really hot to the touch, then not likely required.

So apparently any time a Bluetooth device that has been paired with the 7011 starts playing audio/video, the receiver automatically switches over to the Bluetooth input and streams it, even if it was playing something else through a different input previously. Is there a way to disable this "feature"?

Yup. Unpair the streaming device from the AVR.

Yeah, I knew I could do that. It just doesn't seem like much of a solution, having to pair and unpair constantly (actually, just turning off Bluetooth on the device works, don't have to completely unapair). It seems like there should be a way for the receiver to start streaming only it it's already set to the Bluetooth input without it jumping to it automatically. Oh well, nitpicking I suppose.

Is anybody using the SR7011 for a 7.1.4 system? I'm probably going to get one in the next few days but the official site is saying I would need a secondary amp to power a 7.1.4 system. I currently have a 7.1 Aperion Audio Intimus and will be adding 4 ceiling speakers shortly for Dolby Atmos system. What would happen to the sound quality if I didn't have a second amp?

Thanks!

The SR7011 is only a 9CH model so on it's own can only do a 7.1.2 or 5.1.4 setup. In order to expand to a 11CH setup (ie. 7.1.4) you would need an external amp to power either the FL/FR or Height 2 L/R speakers.

No, rather the SR7011 is the lowest model who's remote can control other devices as well as learn commands from other device remotes. You could however simply use a Harmony remote to control all devices when using the SR6011.

Ah the Bestbuy descriptions list it as a 9.2 model. So what happens if you use up all the Left H1 & H2 and Right H1 & H2 connectors? On top of the existing 7 speakers? It has the connections for it, so no sound out of 2 ceiling speakers then?

You can connect all those, but in the AVR settings there's am amp assign, so you can switch between 5.2.4 or 7.2.2.

My 6011 is showing faint red horizontal lines on the front display. Does this mean it's running too hot? I did a search both here and on Google and couldn't find anything. It's not shutting down but it is definitely hot to the touch. I have a single AC Infinity fan blowing on it now but I ordered a second one too.

From what I have read, having the fans pulling air should work better but for me having it flipped around and pushing air across the top from the back seems to keep it cooler. Is there a consensus on this? The front of my entertainment center is open, no door or anything.

You're also pushing dust on to the components.

Wouldn't I be pulling dust onto the components if I flip it around?

Of course, it would seem cooler to you because you are not allowing the heat to get out. Your receiver will cook inside but cool outside.

Hot air is lighter that cooler air so the natural thing to do is to help the heat (hot air) get out of you receiver faster by pulling them out from the top upwards or push in colder air from the bottom.
Your receiver already has two (2) fans at the bottom to pull colder air and push heated air upwards.

It was my understanding that the SR6011 doesn't have internal fans and for the models that do have them, they only come on above 150F. Regardless, I ordered 2 of these to put on top. I am also running in ECO mode for the time being.

Although the SR6011 does indeed have 2 internal fans, you are correct in that they are only going to come on at 158F (ie. unlikely to ever power on) so you are much better served using your own external fans to draw the warm air out of the AVR. Running in ECO mode also should drop the temp by 10F as well.

Wise move as 150F is too hot! I dare anyone on here go stand in a room that is 150F for 5 minutes and tell me that it was not hot. I use the AC Infinity fans and they work great. The receiver runs cooler and stable.

Yes, 150F (65.6C) is hot for most animals and plants, but that's not hot at all for electronic components rated at 221F (105C) to 279F (155C).

I am not worried about my receiver's temperature as long as it does not go beyond 185F or 85C. It never did, so far.
I think it never will because of its bottom fans that start at 158F or 70C, as @jdsmoothie mentioned. That gives a lot of safety margin for me to worry. I am happy with the built-in thermal protection.

Some even claim to notice that SS audio equipment sound best near their breaking point, temperature-wise, but I wouldn't say that myself, because I think the improvement is caused not by the rise in temperature but the change of mode to class-A during a thermal runaway situation.

That's just my 2 cents worth of opinion anyway.

Hey guys, so I just tried connecting a turntable to the 'phono' jacks on the back of my AVR, but the sound was awful (distorted and bassy). I'm guessing I did something wrong? I connected to the DVD inputs instead, and things are fine.

Also, the volume is way low. I normally listen around -21 to -16 or so, but the turntable is quiet at these settings. I raised the input level to +10, and gets me in the ballpark of what I'm used to. There's no danger to doing this, is there? I normally don't like boosting things that much, but if I didn't, I'd be listening at 0 or higher. Thanks for the help!

Does your turntable come with own equalization preamp?
If so, then yes you'll get bassy distorted sound from the phono input because the phono input is for signals coming from turntables without preamps using "moving magnet cartridges".

The output of typical moving magnet preamps are 10db lower than other sources so DO NOT WORRY. Adjusting your input level to +10 would achieve what you want without detrimental effects.

Thanks. I'm not sure, but I think it probably does have its own preamp. It's one of those Crosley retro-looking numbers with built-in speakers. They actually sound pretty bad (hardly any bass), so I used the RCA outs and hooked them up to the Marantz. Huge improvement (not counting my little blunder with the phono jacks).

Also, this is probably a more appropriate question for the Audyssey thread, but do you all notice that the imaging (for stereo music) is a lot better with Audyssey on than with it off (in pure direct mode)? Pure Direct isn't bad, but when I switch back to Audyssey, the vocals are very clearly coming from the center. In fact, for a minute I thought it was playing in 3.1, but nope, just my 2 mains and sub.

Is it any point having external cooling for a 7011? It gets very hot and have problems with network on it.
