Unhappy

Hi,

I have received the Marantz SR7011, went through the initial setup and I could play music from the HDD which was 2 TB, it played DSD and everything but not the movies from HDD. I connected the HDD (containing movies) to the TV and played the movie from there to get the audio from Marantz, HDMI was used between TV and Marantz (ARC). I could not get any sound from the TV, tried everything on the TV but no sound.

I said yes to the automatic updates during the initial setup. While I was troubleshooting, I tried to reboot the SR7011 and it asked me to update the system, told me this update is for overall stability. Ever since (maybe half hour or so) it is updating. Stuck at 7%, goes back to 4 min left, 5 min left. It started with 9 min left. What should I do, is there a problem? I am worried.


EDIT: Update> Receiver is back, I disconnected the USB HDD and after few minutes it finished updating. If I check for further updates, there is another 11minutes firmware update available for stability. I don't think it is a good idea to update system. Furthermore, I do not get audio from TV while my TV is connected through HDMI to SR7011 ARC HDMI port.

EDIT: Finally got the audio from TV, just need to know if it is safe to update the firmware version? Marantz says, if updating fails and you brick your receiver, they will not be liable.

Thanks/LR

Hi!
I am not an expert but I have an 7011 since a few months ago.
I never had any problem with updates, it has been in automatic since the first day, connected through Ethernet.
As much as I know you can not put an AVR playing video from anywhere using, for example, DLNA or USB input. For that there are lots of other types of equipment. The 7011 can upscale, or pass-through, the image but it doesn't decode video files and so on.
It is an equipment that has lots of functions and is complex to configure (as all AVRs are). I spent many time reading the manual and playing with the tablet (Marantz control app) and I am always learning new things.
My ancient AVR was a Pioneer LX-73 (in USA a SC-07, I think) and was also complex to configure but simpler than the 7011 (it has less functions).
What I use to do is trying this way, that way, listen, watching, trying again ... well for me to experiment several solutions is part of the fun with the AVR! And, till now, no problems and it does everything I need from an AVR!

PS: In the beginning I also had problems with ARC but I solved them trying several ways.

Hello!

Home audio is not nearly as tough as car audio is. I got everything under control now. I got worried when I read Marantz disclaimer after committing to update. I'll not touch it until I hear from other forum members.

I got your point regarding video. I'm new to this all, I've been casually following this forum but never had the equipment to play with. Do I connect my PS4 setting it to be pass through on AVR? I do not have 4k TV, I think upscaling is for 1080 to 4k. Correct me if I'm wrong.

I haven't tried app yet, I'll do but first I need to connect my stuff and speakers to it. The zone 2/3 got turned on by some misconfiguration then I couldn't turn those off. I need to read the book.

I have another question, can I put powered speakers in the surround duty, I have a pair of spare studio monitors.

Thanks for your response.

Upscale is when the AVR, in this case, scales the image signal from anything to anything, including 4K. It can upscale analogue and digital video signals, analogue from 480p up to whatever your TV accepts (1080 maybe). You can read more in the 7011 manual in http://manuals.marantz.com/SR7011/EU...SYsavbhwwe.php. Note that I do not use the upscale to 4k of the AVR because I expected that the TV does that much better (it is a top model from LG) so: Pass-through for digital signals (HDMI) in the AVR and the TV decides what it wants to do with them (analogue signal video sources are always processed in the AVR, at least converted to digital so they can be send through HDMI to the TV).

I have the PS4 connected to the GAME HDMI input of the 7011. If I want the sound in the speakers I turn on the AVR, if I want the sound in the TV I do not turn on the AVR, it does pass-through. Attention that the pass-through can be configured to the "last source before turn off" or "always one of the inputs". I normally use the pass-through of the set-top box so that I can see TV with the AVR off but, if I know that my kids are using the PS4 a lot (they do not need the sound in the AVR connected speakers all day (holydays)), I use the "last source before turn off" mode – PS4 on, AVR on, choose GAME input, AVR off, sound in the TV only - but sometimes, in this mode, I need to turn the AVR on, choose the input set-top box and turn off the TV.

I do not use zones yet.

Powered speakers: You need to read the speakers manual and find out the type of signal they expect in the input. If they have an input impedance from 4 to 16 ohms and accepts tens of watts of power in the input you can use them, if they are like the subwoofers (internal amplifier), the input signal must be millivolts or a few volts and you cannot connect them to the speakers connectors of the AVR, maybe you can connect them to the pre-amplifier outputs (PRE OUT connectors), but to be sure both manuals must be consulted.

I think that the AVR remote control (command) is good but try to use the application for the tablet. To do experiences it is much better! The APP is not excellent and Marantz can improve it but even so, after you learn how to use it, my opinion is that it is a good app.

Looking to get the SR7011 - is anyone using this with an Oppo 203 and an LG b6/c6/e6 experiencing problems getting 4k HDR when using a single hdmi cable to connect Oppo 203 up to the marantz or other hdmi handshake issues?

Excuse the newbie question, but would I still be able to benefit from the Multeq XT room correction on the SR5011 if I connected my speakers to a separate amp via the AVR's pre-out?

Thanks for taking the time to reply - very much appreciated

You say you use a single HDMI to Marantz then another to the LG B6 - can I ask the make please?

Also which HDMI input are you using on the LG?

Thanks

I have the Oppo and sr7011 but with a Sony Z9D. No handshake issues at all, with a single HDMI cable. Well, two. One from Oppo to AVR, and the other from AVR to TV.

I bought both from monoprice and they're 3' each. Just make sure they are high speed and 18gbs certified.

I have a question. When you turn on upscaling, is that a global setting or per input setting?

I'd like to have the 7011 upscale my 1080i from my TiVo Mini.

The LG b6 seems to have motion issues from time to time.

Can I play Amazon music with only the 7011? If so, how?
I can stream from my laptop, but would rather just operate on screen 7011 and tv only.

Yup. Start the stream with the HEOS app and then make that choice a Favorite on the AVR if you want to select it from the AVR going forward.

Question..
If using external amps for all channels, and using the 7011 as a pre.
1 - does it still get crazy hot
2 - how would it compare to the av7703?

Thanks

The HEOS models (ie. only SR7011 for 2016) have moved the music streaming services off of the AVR and on to the HEOS iOS/Android app.

1. This will depend on whether there is proper ventilation around the AVR to include at least 3-4" clearance above/on sides and open front/back as the amps remain powered ON when using external amps. However, most of the heat is generated from the video card, not from the amps, so using external amps will not likely provide much relief regarding the AVR's core temp, although if you set ECO mode = ON, this should drop the temp by about 10 degrees F.

2. Because of its design and not having on board amps, the AV7703 should provide somewhat better audio quality.

I snagged one at this price. I also got the Denon X3300W for $599. I have a few days left in my return window for the Denon. Trying to figure if the extra money is worth it.

Seems like the Marantz sounds a little fuller, is a little warmer and "delicate" meaning it has more details. Could be me wanting to like it.

I thought I had my mind made up on the X3300W myself and was waiting for the price drop to $599. But since I am building my HT from scratch I figured I might as well go for 4 height channels. That limited my choices to SR6011 and X4300H (I wanted to stay with the lowest models that could do 5.1.4). I have experience with Marantz from stuff I owned in the past (and loved). I know that now it is the same company as Denon but I still have a slight preference for Marantz. The SR6011 dropping to $839 makes the decision a little easier assuming the X4300H won't be on clearance for another month or more ...

For as long as I can remember Marantz has "voiced" their components with a full midrange which is the primary region we listen in. You may be hearing that advantage?

I suppose. I am going back and forth between both receivers. (The laborious task of swapping speaker cables and listening to the same scene over again) I even let Audyssey run on both and the process wasn't the same. The Denon didn't have me make any adjustments while the Marantz had me turn the gain down on my subwoofer to below 50% where it says to start with. I keep hearing they are the same receiver but I am not convinced. I am listening to both in Pure Direct mode and the Marantz just sounds a little warmer and to me, that seems better. It also seems like I can hear more details at lower volumes.

Tell me I am not nuts. I don't want to return the Denon and be stuck with buyers remorse...

We all are a bit "nuts" which is why we are on here! I always tell myself to not over analyze the unit. Your mind has to be clear and with no interruptions. When completely relaxed your ears will decide correctly. Trust your ears. Good luck with choosing the right one. Actually either way you win!
