Just ran across an audio issue the other day, and now I can't let it go...
Marantz SR7011 EU
running firmware "6461-1138-8402-0525".
Speakers are Triangle Genese Trio and one SVS-SB4000.
Running in STEREO
-mode with fronts set as SMALL/80Hz
Audyssey and M-DAX is OFF.
Played the track "Winterplay : Hey Bob - Rejazzed
" with Spotify Connect
and noticed clear distortion when the singer goes high between 2:23 - 2:40.
Tested the same track in FLAC-format, from a CD.
This time I played it from a USB-stick in the front of the AVR, and also over LAN from my DLNA-server.
Same distortion happened at the exact same spot.
- Switched to DIRECT
, and PURE DIRECT
-mode: problem gone!
- Back to STEREO-mode: Problem returned, as expected.
- 2ch Playback: Switched fronts to LARGE: Problem gone!
Soo... when fronts are set to SMALL, the sound distorts on rare occasions... but not when set to LARGE.
I'm thinking it could be because there is one less conversion of the audio signal with fronts LARGE... but I don't know.
Also, I obviously need to have it set to small to get the sub playing.
Would appreciate any thoughts on this.
