    I just bought an SR6008. I have a Windows 7 PC with an ASUS 6540 HDMI video card. When I connect the PC to the SR6008, Windows 7 detects the AVR as "marantz-AVR" @ 1280x720p/60 Hz. My display is a Sharp XV-Z12000 DLP projector. I see "speckles" on my screen and have to change my Hz setting to 59...

     Hi guys, I'm a new to this highly valuable forum and was reading a lot of useful information in the past 2-3 months. I'm plotting to start building a decent home theater system with high emphasis on musical aspect rather than a HT. My main fields of musical interests are ranging from classic...

     My receiver is in a well ventilated area-I was listening to music at volume level 75 today and it shut off. I waited three hours and it will not power back on-the unit is three months old. Any ideas??

     So I've been considering upgrading from my current Marantz SR6008 to an AV7701 Pre/Pro and MM7025 2-Channel amp before purchasing a pair of MartinLogan ESLs to replace my current Polks, as I know 'Stats are a bit nit-picky about power. I was just about convinced to go ahead and make the bump...

     I´m currently in this jungle of choosing speakers (a whole 7.1 system to be honest) and I need som advice.   My plan is to run the whole thing with a Denon X4000, possibly a Marantz SR6008 depending on which one sounds best for movies, which is what I will be using the system for at 90% of...

    I have a Marantz SR6008 with Castle Conway 3 floor standing speakers. Room is about 15' square. Main listening postion is about 10'-12' from the amp/speakers. Never used a sub before. But, I fancy moving from a 2.0 set up to a 2.1 set up. What are the pros and cons? Will any sub do (I...

    The HDMI board of my AVR-3808 is broken, and I'm looking to replace this AV receiver. Which AV receiver would you recommend? My HT room consists of 4x B&W 602 front and rear speakers, 1x B&W CC6 center, 2x B&W DS3 surround speakers and 1 B&W ASW-1000 sub. The AV receiver will have to feed 2...

    I feel like punishing my wallet so I figure might as well jump into vinyl... I have no audio system whatsoever right now unless you count my Logitech Z5500 speakers I use to play music and watch movies on my computer. I do one day want to buy a large TV (possibly 4K once prices drop) and have...

    All, Both are available for almost the same price point. Which one would you get? I don't need the amplifier section just the pre-pro THanks

     I think I've narrowed my search down between 2 units. I found a decent deal on a Onkyo TX-NR828 and a Marantz SR5008. I wish I could get the SR6008, but I have a credit with BestBuy and they don't offer the 6008 ATM.   The Onkyo has more features, but I have concerns with the HDMI failures...

     I'm kinda stuck between 3 units from Pioneer. It will be replacing a Yamaha RX-V575 that I got for Christmas from the wife. I'm looking at the VSX-1123-k , the VSX-70 elite ( I can't see a lot of difference between those two.) The other is the SC-71 ( possibly the SC-72 depending on the...

    I think what I'm after is a receiver with A/B switching capability and zone 2. ENrgStar's speaker setup is pretty much identical to mine although his has more inputs. What I have and want to do is this: Zone A is the living room with audio and video in a 5.1 setup. Zone B is the dining room...

     Hello all. New to the forums, and new to higher quality home theater equipment. I have purchased a Marantz SR6008 receiver to replace my Sony DG820. I will be mating it to a pair of MartinLogan Electromotion ESL speakers, which are replacing some 20 year old Yamahas.   I was looking at the...

    So, picked up a Marantz 6008 for Christmas and it hasn't exactly worked as I would expect ... It has started to "desync" video from the top 8-12 inches of the screen. What I mean by this, is that the video at the top 12 inches lags behind the bottom by 5-10 seconds. This will last for at...

    Looking for best receiver to match with my Dayton 12 Channel amp. Will be used for 5.1 set up and to feed multiple zones mostly background music. Worried about not being able to play hdmi sources ( Apple TV) through zone 2. Wifi and airplay would be a plus. Thanks
