"OFFICIAL" 2019 Marantz "NR-Series"/"SR-Series" AVR Owner's Thread + FAQ (Posts 1-6)
 
"OFFICIAL" 2019 Marantz NR1510/NR1710/SR5014/SR6014


Sound United (parent company of Marantz) has started to release information on the new 2019 Marantz models starting with the slim line "NR" series models. The "SR" series will be announced later this summer. The 2017 SR8012 and 2018 SR7013 will continue for 2019 and will continue to be discussed in their current respective threads.

What's new or to be added via firmware update for the 2019 models?

- Note that all the 2019 models are still HDMI 2.0b
- HDCP 2.3 - all inputs
- eARC - on board (as opposed to the 2017 SR6012/SR7012 and 2018 SR6013/SR7013/SR8012 models previously receiving it via a firmware update)(Note an HDMI w/Ethernet cable must be used between the AVR and eARC capable TV)
- USB thumb drive requirements - NTFS added
- Airplay - ON/OFF setting
- OvrC smart remote management
- HDMI Input Mode setting connected to the HDMI Input Assign menu
- HDMI Multiple Input Assign (allow to assign multiple audio sources to the same video source)
- ALL ZONE STEREO - ON/OFF added to Smart Select button
- Spotify Connect now available using a "FREE" Spotify account - firmware update 8-21-2019
- Able to downmix a multi CH audio source selected in the main zone to 2CH PCM in Zone 2 by pressing the [Zone 2 Source] button on the front panel and selecting "Source" instead of the actual source name

- Added via future firmware update:
- Dolby Atmos Height Virtualizer (only available when sound mode selected includes "+ Dolby Surround") - firmware update released August 2019
- Bluetooth transmit to single pair of headphones/hearing aids - firmware update released December 5, 2019 [setup instructions: https://denon.custhelp.com/app/answe...th-headphones]
- Automatic HDMI Input rename (when input available from source player)


What was dropped from the 2018 models?
- No longer able to apply DTS Neural:X on DD audio but still able to use Dolby Surround on DTS audio
- 7.1 multi analog inputs dropped (SR5014 only)
- Surround parameter <Center Spread> (formerly available with Dolby Surround upmixer (ie. DSU) but dropped per Dolby's new DSU spec)


----------------------

Notes:
1. Although all models feature two subwoofer pre-outs, only the SR6014 has independent subwoofer volume control of each subwoofer.
2. None of these models support Front Wide speakers.

How do I reset the microprocessor or do a network reset on my 2019 Marantz NR/SR series AVR?

When the AVR is acting up or doing something strange, try the following steps before resorting to a microprocessor reset:

1. "Restart" - set the AVR to Standby and press/hold the power ON button until "Restart" is displayed on the front panel.

If no joy, then ...

2. Soft reset - set the AVR to Standby and unplug the power cord for about 10 minutes, then plug back in the power cord and turn ON.

If neither of the above resolves the issue, then you'll need to either do a network reset (if network related) or a microprocessor reset. You'll also want to reset the microprocessor before doing anything else if you purchased the AVR as an "open box" or demo/used/refurb unit to ensure all settings are returned to their original factory defaults. Prior to doing a reset, you can SAVE the config file to a USB thumb drive so it can be LOADed after doing the reset (SETUP - GENERAL - SAVE&LOAD).


Network Reset (“Amp Assign”, “Speaker Config.” and “Video” settings are not reset)

NR1510 - p. 201

1 - Turn on the power using ON/STANDBY on the front panel.
2 - Select the HEOS Music Source
3 - Simultaneously press "TUNER PRESET CH +" and "DIMMER" on the front panel. Release your fingers when "Network Reset" is displayed on the front panel. "Completed" will display when the reset has completed.

-----------------------

NR1710 - p. 244

1 - Turn on the power using ON/STANDBY on the front panel.
2 - Select the HEOS Music Source
3 - Simultaneously press "ZONE2 SOURCE" and "DIMMER" on the front panel. Release your fingers when "Network Reset" is displayed on the front panel. "Completed" will display when the reset has completed.

-----------------------

SR5014 - p. 246
SR6014 - p. 273

1 - Turn on the power using ON/STANDBY on the front panel.
2 - Select the HEOS Music Source
3 - Simultaneously press "TUNER PRESET CH -" and "DIMMER" on the front panel. Release your fingers when "Network Reset" is displayed on the front panel. "Completed" will display when the reset has completed.

-------------


Microprocessor Reset (aka "Reset to original factory settings" although does not roll back the firmware)

Note: On all models, if you are able to access the menu, new this year, you can also do the microprocessor reset by going to SETUP - GENERAL - RESET

NR1510 - p. 200


1 - Turn off the power using ON/STANDBY.
2 - Press ON/STANDBY while simultaneously pressing the "TUNER PRESET CH+" and "M-DAX"
3 - Remove your fingers when "Initialized" appears on the front panel display.

-------------------------

NR1710 - p. 243
SR5014 - p. 245
SR6014 - p. 272


1 - Turn off the power using ON/STANDBY.
2 - Press ON/STANDBY while simultaneously pressing the "ZONE2 SOURCE" and "M-DAX"
3 - Remove your fingers when "Initialized" appears on the front panel display.

-------------------------

Factory Restore (restore to original factory firmware version)

1 - Turn off the power using ON/STANDBY.
2 - Simultaneously press/hold the: NR1510/NR1710 - "STATUS" and "PURE DIRECT"; SR5014/SR6014 - "M-DAX" and "TUNER PRESET CH +" buttons on the front panel and then press the ON/STANDBY button on the front panel. This procedure will take 15-20 minutes to restore to the original factory firmware.

--------------------

** NOTES:
(1) Prior to resetting the microprocessor, you can SAVE the config/settings (to include Audyssey settings) to a USB thumb drive using the SETUP - GENERAL - SAVE & LOAD setting.

Firmware Updates

(1) Firmware updates for all 2019 models should be available via the Marantz website and can be downloaded and installed via USB thumb drive. You will need to enter the serial number of the AVR at the website page to obtain the update.

(2) Firmware updates can also be installed by the owner via an internet connection to the Marantz servers. Although it's not necessary to update your unit if you are not experiencing any problems, it's generally a good idea to keep it updated so that if there are any problems with the update the unit will still be covered under warranty. The update process generally doesn't take more than 30 minutes once the download begins and also generally does not erase any settings, although it's always a good idea to SAVE the config.avr file using the Setup - General - SAVE & LOAD - SAVE feature prior to doing the update just in case. Note that if the update process is stuck on "Authenticating", ensure a source other than NET/USB is selected and just let it continue for up to a few hours and it should eventually begin the update process (although note that Denon's servers have been known to crash the first day of release due to the overload, so you may want to wait a few days before trying again). One prior model year owner found that disconnecting ALL sources to the AVR enabled the unit to connect to the Denon servers and update the firmware when the update process had previously been unsuccessful.

Other tips if having problems with the update include setting "Network Control" to OFF in Standby, cycling the DHCP setting on the AVR, or using a static IP address.

During the update, the AVR will go into Standby mode, but will continue to update status on the front panel display. If the update seems to be hung up (ie. goes beyond 1 hour) ... power the AVR to Standby, unplug it for a few minutes and power back on and attempt the update again. If the update fails to load, check the network environment (ie. reset the router, replace the router with a more current/robust model, or ideally wire directly to the router if connecting wirelessly) If still not having any luck with the update, perform a Network Reset as described in post 3 above. You may also want to consider purchasing a long (100'+) Cat5/6 cable for network updates only for a higher probability of a successful install.

You will be notified automatically when there is a firmware update when the AVR is turned ON as long as the Notification Update setting is set to ON (factory default). For more information refer to Setup - General - Firmware - Notifications -Update in the Owner's manual. To manually check for an update, refer to Setup - General - Firmware - Update - Check for Update.

(3) What is my unit's current firmware version? The current firmware version can be determined from the AVR's menu: Setup --> General --> Information --> Firmware Version.

3D Immersive Audio formats:


Dolby Atmos + Dolby Surround upmixer (aka DSU; simulates audio to height/ceiling speakers from non-Atmos BD/DVDs)

The NR1710 and SR5014 are both capable of Atmos 5.2.2 (ie. 2 height speaker maximum). You will have the choice of selecting the specific speaker pair to be used as the Atmos Height speakers (except Top Rear or Rear Height which is only selectable on the SR6014). If able to install in-ceiling or on-ceiling mounted speakers, the best location will be "Top Middle" either directly above your seated position or slightly forward of the seated position. Note that although the SR5014 has main zone pre-outs, it is not possible to expand the SR5014 beyond operating 7 speakers (ie. 5.1.2 maximum).

https://www.avsforum.com/forum/attac...1&d=1433442273



Notes:
(1) Speaker abbreviations used in this thread: Subwoofer (SW), Front L/R (FL/FR), Center (C), Surround L/R (SL/SR); Surround Back L/R (SBL/SBR); Front Height L/R (FHL/FHR); Top Front L/R (TFL/TFR); Top Middle L/R (TML/TMR); Top Rear L/R (TRL/TRR); Rear Height L/R (RHL/RHR), Front Dolby L/R (FDL/FDR); Surround Dolby L/R (SDL/SDR); Rear Dolby L/R (RDL/RDR).

Note the Top Rear, Rear Height, and Rear Dolby locations are only available on the SR6014 as this is the only 2019 model capable of 4 Height speakers whereas the lower models are only capable of 2 Height speakers.

(2) If you only have a 2.0/2.1/3.0/3.1 setup, you can still add 2 height (FH, TF, TM, or DF) speakers for a 2.X.2 or 3.X.2 Atmos only setup (ie. DTS:X requires 5.1.2 setup). However, when adding 2 Surround Back speakers you must first have a 5.1 setup, although you can simply move the "side surround" speakers behind you but still connect them to the "Surround" speaker posts.

(3) If you already have in-ceiling "side" surrounds for a 5.1 setup, you can do a 3.1.2 setup configuring the ceiling surrounds as Top Middle or with a 5.1.2 setup, if you can add (a) Front Heights (front wall mounted), (b) Top Fronts (in-ceiling or ceiling mounted a few feet forward and above the FL/FR speakers), or (c) Front Dolby (upward firing speakers placed on top of (or near) the FL/FR speakers. Yet another option would be to add some floor side surrounds and configure the current ceiling speakers as Top Middle.

(4) For more detailed questions and additional information on Dolby Atmos, please refer to the Official Dolby Atmos thread.

Just picked up a NR1710 today. This is going in a sunroom and I love, love, love how small and discrete it is. I did run into an issue with Audessey setup: Upon initial powerup, when I connected the microphone and ran the setup, it gave me an error message saying that it couldn't find any speakers (although the test tone played very loudly from the left speaker 3 times, at increasing volumes). So then I did a software update and re-ran the Audessey setup, it picked up my Left Speaker, and played the test tone in the Right speaker, but at the end of the first pass of calibration, it said "right speaker not detected".



I only have two speakers connected to it. I'm wondering if this is just a quirk that'll be resolved via a software update, or something more. I can't imagine it would be a serious issue. I have a Marantz 8801 AVP which also has Audessey and I never once encountered this issue.



Doesn't work: Apple HomeKit integration. I followed the directions on marantz's site to add the receiver to HomeKit. It shows up on the HomeKit screen but then it just says "unable to add accessory".



Doesn't work: AirPlay 2. I tried to play a Youtube video back using the Youtube app and the Airplay button. It said I needed to enter a code displayed on the receiver to get it to pair/work, but no code was ever sent.


Annoyance: whenever you want to change the volume, it shows the regular marantz volume, and another bar graph on the side called "ECO" which shows some stupid green bar graph thing. I turned off ECO mode or whatever, and I just want the regular volume control bar graph, but I cant get it to just show that instead of all that other crap.





I assume because this model is brand new, it'll take some time for these features to work, I guess maybe I'm just being impatient. Besides that, it looks great, sounds great, which I guess is the most important part.

Could be a defective microphone. Contact Marantz for a replacement.

I just went ahead and tried the microphone that came with my 8801. I got the exact same error message about the Right Front speaker not being recognized. Coupled with all the other software issues I found last night, I have to suspect this isn't a hardware issue or a bad mic.



What's worse is that Marantz didn't ship a manual, and gave a link to their website, and no manual exists for this receiver as of yet.



I mean what should matter is the sound, and it does sound great, but I was also very excited to try out the AirPlay 2, HomeKit and other features for which there are logos and stickers all over the box but dont work yet :frown:

ou8thissn1 07-13-2019 12:31 PM

With this unit, I should be able to AirPlay music just to the Zone 2 speakers, right? I'm in the process of installing the zone two speakers to our patio so I cannot test this as of yet. I was able to just open up my phone and push the AirPlay icon and have it turn on the marantz and start playback in the Main Zone for my music.



I remember the 8801 had a limitation that only analog sources could be played back in Zone 2, and the manual for the NR1709 also has a statement saying it's Zone 2 cannot be played back with HDMI, or COAX sources. But they dont say anything about AirPlay, one way or the other.

The AV8801 uses the same mic so it is not a mic issue. D+M stopped shipping hard copy manuals over 5 years ago. The on line version should be available soon.

Airplay has always worked on Zone 2 models, but first it hijacks the main zone and only then can you select it to Zone 2 and then reselect the original source playing in the main zone, or turn it off if it wasn't being used.

Not independent from Zone 1, no, which has been and continues to be only available on the SR6000 series and higher models. You can, however, select ALL ZONE STEREO which will then allow you to play the same HDMI stereo source in both the main and Zone 2.

I don’t need it to be independent, in fact all zone stereo is what I was wondering if it was possible. Thank you for explaining that.

I don’t believe that would have been possible with my 8801

Yes, it is possible (see p. 82 of the AV8801 Owner's manual).

So if you can indeed have stereo sound being played back in multiple zones from digital sources like HDMI, then why is there a limitation preventing you from independently playing a digital source back in Zone 2 or Zone 3? I didnt at all know my 8801 was also capable of this.

Simply because the lower level models (eg. NR1710) don't have a dedicated DAC for Zone 2. The 2013 SR6000/AV7000 and higher models (ie. which excludes the 2012 AV8801) are able to play a 2CH HDMI source independently to Zone 2.

@jdsmoothie


First off, thanks again for doing these threads. Big help to the community. Also kinda surprised it hasn't got more posts yet.


When looking over the specs of the new X014 series, I see you mention it will now have Dolby Height Virtualizer. I may have missed it, but what's the difference between that vs Dolby Surround Upmixer?


And since you stated "No longer able to apply DTS Neural:X on DD audio" for the new models, will that be taken away from the '18 X013 models?


Lastly, what's the deal with HDCP 2.3? My understanding is that it was to be used with HDMI 2.1. But these don't support that. So what is the point of adding that? What will be using that?


Sucks there won't be a 7014 model released this year. But it appears that it's a holdover year for receivers just like TV's. Not too much worthwhile in the specs/advancement department.



Thanks!

Thanks!

1. Dolby Height Virtualizer simulates "height" audio when there are no height speakers. DSU sends audio to actual height speakers.
2. AFAIK, not to be taken away from 2018 or earlier models.
3. Not sure what it will be used for until actual HDMI 2.1 devices are released.

Marantz finally posted the instruction manual for the 1710. In the manual it lists the amp rating as 70wpc but all the other literature says 50wpc. I've also been trying to set it up with HomeKit and sometimes it connects and sometimes it gives me an error. Is there any sort of timeline for this product to get out of the 'beta' stage and have all of these features enabled?

All of the "NR" models are 50W into an 8-ohm speaker and 70W into a 6-ohm speaker. Try doing the "Network Reset" as noted in post 4.

I did the network reset procedure, but it didnt change anything. The HomeKit app still doesn't recognize the 1710. I wonder if this feature is working as it should on the 1510

Disconnecting the unit from ethernet and connecting to our Wi-Fi, I was able to add it to HomeKit. It now shows up as an icon in my Home app and works as it should. sorta weird that it didn't want to be set up when I had it connected over ethernet. I have since disconnected the Wi-Fi and I'm back on ethernet and it still works fine. Thank you for the help! Now if I can only get Audyssey to work, I'd be over the moon.

Just got my NR1710 setup! :) Upgraded from an NR1403 and loving it so far.

Quick question, when I throw a Dolby Atmos file to it from my htpc, the display shows "THD +Dsur". Is this because I only have a 5.1 system setup, or is there something wrong with my input. DTS-X files will show up as "DTS-X Neural" When I click the "movie" or audio buttons on the bottom of the remote, I do see the option from Dolby Atmos and TrueHD.

It's more likely because there is a setting issue on your HTPC otherwise the display would read either "Atmos" or "DTS:X". Ensure any Secondary Audio/Producer comments/Mix setting is disabled on the HTPC. When you press the INFO button on the remote, what is listed as the source signal?

Figured it out! Messed around with the settings and set the "amp assign" (rear surround channel) to ceiling speaker or any other surround setup and Atmos popped up. Input signal showed Atmos as well. When I turned it off, it automatically went back down to TrueHD +Dsur.

Looks like I gotta tear open the wall to run up some wires into the ceiling! Haha

So today I was finally able to set up my Zone 2 speakers. If you use the HEOS app, you can go in there and turn off and on just Zone 2, or both zones; then you can stream any music source you want, either off your phone, your DLNA music library on your network, or an online streaming source. It's a couple of more clicks than AirPlay, but you dont have to first have it play in both zones then switch to just zone 2. I also tried to get Siri to just turn on Zone 2, but I couldn't, maybe I am not saying the right trigger, idk (saying "Play [Artist/album/etc] in [location" via Siri works perfectly for Main Zone, after HomeKit is setup).


The HEOS app lets you choose inputs, I dont yet have any sources (HDMI/SPDIF etc.) to test to see if I can get around the analog sources limit for Zone 2 as described in the manual.

Any reason/thoughts as to why the SR6014 weights almost 6 lbs LESS then the SR6013? (22.3 lbs vs 28.1 lbs)

The product sheet shows no change in weight.
