Congrats on your new AV7705.Same - going with AV7705 - no need for the extra channels
I think a lot of us have or will be up-grading to the new Marantz AV8805.My HDMI board died for a second time and it has been replaced by an AV8805
I just had mine replaced under warranty at Microland in Markham, Ontario.Anyone get the HDMI board fixed in Canada and just curious where you sent it and cost -
Started to lose sound output - reboot has been fixing it but sounds like its failing board-
picking up new Marantz pre/pro - just going to see if worthwhile fixing and selling - thxs
cool - will look into that if feel like fixing - difficult job? - no handy man but I do build my own PC's -I just had mine replaced under warranty at Microland in Markham, Ontario.
It was a bit of a gong show as I purchased mine in the US (saved around $1700 if I remember correctly). When the guy I was on the phone with found out it was a US unit in Canada, then they wanted me to send it to Chicago. I was not going to do that, so I found a repair centre that would get me the board to replace myself. I think it was around $300 for the board. Northstar Electronics was the place that would get the board.
They (Onkyo) ended up sending me a return box to both my US address and my Canadian address, so when I took it to Microland, they said all was good and I had it back in about a week.
Replacing the board would be no more difficult than changing a motherboard in a PC. Only thing you would have to be mindful of is the way the various cables and connectors get released.cool - will look into that if feel like fixing - difficult job? - no handy man but I do build my own PC's -
Using your example...Let's say I'm watching DirecTV. Most sources will be stereo but movies or concerts may be recorded in DTS or one of many flavors of Dolby or THX or whatever. How does the processor know which to use? How do I know which to use? I also have a Marantz SR5008 and it has a setting for auto mode selection. It picks the right method of decoding the source material.
Well this week I moved my Integra DHC-60.5 from my old bakers rack to my 42U rack. After I did my front LCR stopped working so I moved around speaker wires and RCA connections from my Preamp but can't get sound to come from any of the front speakers. Now I have losed sound from my left surround speaker. I did reset the Preamp, but that didn't help. I even tried my Marantz 5 channel amp but it didn't work at all. I checked the fuses as well and they are all good.
I'm stumped. I would like to upgrade to a 4K Dolby Atmos receiver. Maybe this is a sign.
Ok, I am using 5 Marantz 700 Monoblocks to power each channel. So a RCA cables from preamp goes from the FR, FL, C, SR and SL into the inputs of the Monoblocks. I have 14 gauge speaker wire with connectors from the amps to the speakers. This is the same setup as I have always had. I turned off the power to everything then moved the equipment, plugged it in then powered it up. Kind of strange to me. I do know when I have tried to use the working on the front speakers it doesn't work either. So it has to be in the switching in the preamp.Can you diagram out or explain your wiring setup? Where exactly do all your speaker wires go to/from? Any pre-amps, DSP boxes, etc.? What kinda speaker wire connections at the receiver end and the speaker end?
