*Official* Marantz 2016 NR1607, SR5011/6011/7011 owner's thread

Welcome to the Marantz 2016 receivers thread!

Well it's that time of the year again when Marantz starts to unveil their line up for 2016.

Starting in May and continuing into the fall, new receivers for their slim line series as well as the full height receivers will be announced and become available to purchase.

This is a master thread for the new 2016 Marantz receivers models. Similar to the 2015 Marantz thread owner's (or potential owners) can post their questions in a single master thread.

Moving things along, imagic has let the cat out of the bag by letting people know about the new 2016 slimline model revealed by Marantz the First 2016 Marantz AVR Unveiled: NR1607 Slim Design thread.

So what are we expecting for 2016? All 2016 models will now have Atmos and DTS:X in various speaker configurations.
[Edit]: New Audyssey MultiEQ Editor App (extra $20) is available on here: http://us.marantz.com/us/Products/Pages/ProductDetails.aspx?CatId=AVReceivers&ProductId=AudysseyMultEQEditorApp

One new 7-channel slim line receiver with model number NR1607 with Dobly Atmos 5.1.2 speaker configuration. The 5-channel slimline receiver (NR1506) is a carry over from 2015 and remains current for 2016. Details of which are below.

Three new full height receivers with model numbers SR5011, SR6011 and SR7011.

A new thread is available for the 2016 pre/pro called AV7703 here: http://www.avsforum.com/forum/90-receivers-amps-processors/2567513-official-marantz-av7703-thread.html#post46494769

As more details of each model are released, the 1st page of this thread will be up-dated accordingly.

General notes for posting in this thread.

If this is your first visit to this thread, and you want to ask a question about one of the 2016 Marantz models, either one that you own or one that you are thinking of buying, please provide the following information to allow for better responses to your questions:

(a) Identify the model number in question (eg. SR5011), as there are 5 different models (NR and SR series) discussed in this thread. Also if you have not posted in several days since your initial post, please post the model # again so we don't have to back track to learn which model you are referencing.

(b) Identify what you've done so far to troubleshoot the issue and what the front panel is displaying if an audio issue, (also take a few minutes to review the Troubleshooting section provided in post number 3 of the 2016 Denon thread as the Marantz models are similar in nature and your question may already be answered there),

(c) Unless you indicate what settings have been changed, the assumption will be that all settings are on the factory defaults (ie. usually "Auto"),

(d) If the advice given seems to simplistic or obvious, don't shoot the advice giver as we have no idea of the level of your technical understanding,

(e) If there is no response to your post, it either means no one knows the answer or it has simply been overlooked so please repost if you still haven't resolved your issue,

(f) If you post a question in this thread and are given advice and either it or some other advice (eg. Marantz phone support, Marantz "Ask a Question" email support) resolves your issue, have the common courtesy to post back what solution resolved your issue so others can learn from it as well,

(g) If the issue is not user error or not just a misunderstanding on how the AVR works, please call Marantz support so the issue is registered,

(h) When responding to another post that is providing assistance to you, please press the "Quote" button in the lower right corner of that other poster's response so that response is also listed with your new post to provide some context, and,

(i) If you don't live in either the USA or Canada, please either indicate your country location in your profile or your post as some Marantz models from other regions in the world differ in configuration from their USA/Canada counterparts otherwise responses made will be regarding the USA/Canada models.

Most likely the 2016 SR7011 internal amps have similar bench test results as the previous generation and these are shown below.
2 Channels Continuously Driven, 8-Ohm Loads: 0.1% THD=128.7 watts, 1.0% THD=168.8 watts
2 Channels Continuously Driven, 4-Ohm Loads: 0.1% THD=201.7 watts, 1.0% THD=235.3 watts
5 Channels Continuously Driven, 8-Ohm Loads: 0.1% THD=84.3 watts, 1.0% THD=113.1 watts
7 Channels Continuously Driven, 8-Ohm Loads: 0.1% THD=83.2 watts, 1.0% THD= 103.4 watts

What's new in the 2016 model compared to previous model (SR7010)?
  • HEOS wireless multi-room sound system
  • Extended bluetooth range via version 3.0 + EDR
  • DSD at 5.6Mhz
  • 5GHz frequency support under WiFi (now dual band)
  • New Audyssey remote app (a paid up-grade that will allow the user to check correction results, set target sound options, adjust frequency roll-off, set mid-range compensation controls and save, load, view and print results.)
  • RC Source Select (allows changing of an HDMI standby pass through source while the AVR is in Standby mode - 2015 and older models require powering on the AVR to change the pass through source)
  • Cannot do Audyssey DSX or Front Wide speakers.:(
DTS:X with Neural:X upmixer firmware installed at the factory.

Discrete Network chip reset (no settings lost).
1 - With the AVR powered ON, select "Online Music" as the input source.
2 - Simultaneously press/hold the SR7011 "BACK" + "ENTER" buttons on the front panel
3 - Hold the buttons for a few seconds until the display reads "Network Restart" and then release the buttons.

Try the above first when experiencing network issues before doing the full reset below (which would result in the lose of all user settings as well as the Audyssey EQ).

Resetting the SR7011. Note that for microprocessor and network reset, all user and Audyssey setup settings will be wiped out. The SAVE/LOAD configuration steps should be performed beforehand to save user and Audyssey settings.

(1) Soft reset. Un-plug the power chord for approximately 10 minutes.

(2) Microprocessor reset. Also known as the factory reset.
Turn OFF the unit
Turn ON the unit and simultaneously press the GAME and A-DSX buttons.
Wait until the display shows "Initialized", then release the two buttons.

(3) Network Reset (includes microprocessor reset, ie. all settings restored to factory default).
Turn OFF the unit
Turn ON the unit and simultaneously press the MOVIE and MUSIC buttons.
Wait until the display starts flashing in 1 second intervals, then release the two buttons.

For those interested in powering the floor speakers with external amps and utilizing the internal amps of the SR7011 to power the Atmos/ceiling height speakers, jdsmoothie has given the following manual amp assign configuration in 2015 Marantz thread post number 364:
Amp Assign: 11.1
Height Speakers: 4 Height Speakers
Height Layout: TF + TR (or whatever height speaker positions you are using)
Wide/HT 2: Top Rear (or whatever 2nd height speaker position you are using)
Pre-out: Front

Since Marantz and Denon are owned by the same parent holding company, a lot of the features available in the 2016 Denon models are replicated to Marantz models.

jdsmoothie and batpig has started the 2016 Denon thread. Many questions related to features, settings, set-up of the Martanz receivers and pre/pro can be found in the 1st page of the 2016 Denon thread here: http://www.avsforum.com/forum/90-receivers-amps-processors/2444306-official-2016-denon-s-series-x-series-avr-owner-s-thread-faq.html

I'll just refer everyone to the good work that jdsmoothie and batpig have already done.

If you're looking to purchase a Marantz receiver (or any Denon/Marantz gear), AVS is an authorized dealer. Call jdsmoothie on 585-645-1006 for competitive quote.

Firmware up-dates: in post number 15 by jdsmoothie for up-dates to Marantz firmware.

For first time user of Audyssey, AVS member Keith Barnes has written an FAQ and a step by step guide here: http://www.avsforum.com/forum/90-receivers-amps-processors/795421-official-audyssey-thread-faq-post-51779-a-1726.html#101top

An in depth technical addendum to explain the differences between Audyssey XT32 and the lower versions is given here: http://www.avsforum.com/forum/90-receivers-amps-processors/795421-official-audyssey-thread-faq-post-51779-a-1726.html#addendumtop

The SAVE/LOAD feature for the Marantz receivers is the same as that on the Denon models. jdsmoothie has given the step by step guide to carrying out a configuration SAVE onto the PC and verification of non-zero file using a hex editor in post number 4 of the 2015 Denon thread using IE. Chrome/Firefox browser SAVE/LOAD is given in post number 2,775 in the 2013 Denon thread.

Wish list items for 2016 Marantz line-up

Items that would be good for the Marantz 2016 line-up.

(1) Return of Dolby Pro-Logic II for up-sampling 2-channel music to multi-speakers on the floor for all models.
(2) Implementation of DarbeeVision Visual Presence processing as detailed in the video within the following thread: http://www.avsforum.com/forum/138-avs-forum-podcasts/2446802-darbee-s-vision.html#post43857370. Can be a paid up-grade similar to Auro 3D for the higher end models with sufficient video processing power.
(3) Saving to memory more than one Audyssey calibration and the ability to instantly switch with the remote. I.e use of quick select
(4) Ability to select individually which channels gets / not get Audyssey processing. Currently limited to front left/right channels. Or Audyssey OFF.:(
(5) Ability to adjust the Audyssey target curve to suite one's personal room and taste. This has taken of with the new Audyssey app ($20 extra cost).
(6) Minimize thermal heat generated by the HDMI boards. I.e. run cooler and lower energy use.
(7) Current limiter/protection for the 12V transistor trigger outputs.
(8) Fix video processor bug associated with banding and if the source is from PC source, causes blurry text.

I wonder if the SR5011 will lose analogue video to HDMI upscaling like the Denons did. If that's the case then the one to get is the SR5010 which not only has all the important stuff like Atmos, HDCP 2.2, and HDMI 2.0a, but also that analogue to 1080p upscaling for HDMI output.

Firmware Update Information for the 2016 Marantz NR/SR models


(1) Firmware updates for all 2016 models should be available via Marantz's 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 settings config.dat file using the Web Control 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 Marantz'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). Some have noted that rather than selecting the "Check for Update", instead simply selecting the "Start Update" will avoid the "Authenticating" issue. One prior model year owner found that disconnecting ALL sources to the AVR enabled the unit to connect to the Marantz servers and update the firmware when the update process had previously been unsuccessful.

Other tips if having problems with the update include setting "Network Standby/IP Control/Network" to OFF, 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. 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. Also note, that once the update has completed, there is no way of returning to an earlier version of firmware.

Networking model owners 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 your respective 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.

(4) There are two firmware notification settings, both of which default to "ON" from the factory..... "Update" (fixes) and "Upgrade" (new feature). When either an "update" or "upgrade" is available the networking models will display a message alerting you to this "update" or "upgrade" every time you turn on the AVR. If you prefer not to install the update/upgrade, then simply change the appropriate setting at General --> Firmware --> Notifications ---> Update/Upgrade to OFF (factory default is ON) and it will go away.


This area will be used to track the change log of the firmware updates for 2016 NR/SR series models


SR7011

Doesn't the previous year's NR1606 already have HDMI 2.0a and HDR?
The NR-1606 needs a firmware up-date (believe it will happen over the summer period) to get HDMI 2.0a and HDR, as well as HDCP 2.2.

The NR-1606 needs a firmware up-date (believe it will happen over the summer period) to get HDMI 2.0a and HDR, as well as HDCP 2.2.
So once it has the update it should be able to do HDR as well as pass through BT.2020 and other stuff. Therefore the difference between NR1606 and NR1607 isn't all that much (as pointed out in post #3). Is this an accurate statement?

I asked Marantz what the differences between the two models were, specifically related to HDR and BT.2020 - but given that they would like to encourage sales of NR1607, I'm not holding my breath while they answer ...

Yup.

All of the 2015 and 2016 models already are HDMI 2.0a(HDR) and HDCP 2.2 capable. It is only the DTS:X update (August 2016) that is missing.

Nothing about any 11ch amped receiver?

I was hoping that the 7011 would get that.
I could also accept if Marantz made a 4ch power amp, for the ceiling speakers, one that is priced less than their stereo power amp (at least less than that one is, in my country), with less power of course, but those channels would need less power for most people.
I assume that the Stereo power amp is better than using two of the SR7010 channels when used together with all 9channels. But adding a stereo power amp, feels strange to me. If I wanted to imrpove on the sound, in the fron channels, I would like that to include the center channel as well, so a 3 channel power amp would feel better to me. Also those are the 3 channels that tend to reqire most resources, so it seems like that would be a logic model for home theare users. As far a I know they don't have a matching mono-block either so you can't add 2+1 channel amplification.


I could see myself using another brand for all ceiling channels, but adding 4 channels of the cheapest hifi power-amp (2x stereo power amps) in my country would set me back almost as much as the stereo power amp from Marantz.
So that isn't worth it.
And the 6011 I assume will not get 11.1/11.2 channel processing, so I cant save some money there, to invest in power-amps for all the ceiling speakers.
