Yes. Anything specifically you are looking to know?
I've owned 7703, 7704, Yamaha 5100 and 3080 (among older Yamaha models, Anthem AVM 60, various Onkyo AVRs).
General feeling is that I prefer Yamaha over Marantz. And I'm not a fan of Audyssey XT32 (good for subs only imo).
Never owned 8802 or 8805 but based on independent measurements the 8805 is nothing special in the audio dept.
Marantz rolls off high frequencies by design to give it a bit warmer sound.As a "general rule" it is said that the Yamaha sounds more "detailed" and the Marantz sounds more "smooth"...
Does that hold true in your experience...?
I don't own an MX, but here's the recommended hookup for the MX5200/CX5200. If this is how you already have things hooked up, I'm not sure what the issue might be.Okay need some help just hooked up my MX5200 to the CX5200 and everything works but the Front L/R. I have the XLR plugged into Ch 3 and set to Bal and have my speaker cables in Ch 3 B and no sound.
Tried a different cables and no difference so I move the Amp Assign switch pm Ch 4 over to Ch 3 and I get sound out of L/R but nothing out of the Front Presence which is Ch 4.
Also they sound coming out of the L/R is not good, not much clarity or volume as compared to the Center Chanel and with the previous Emotiva Amp I was using.
Anybody got any ideas? Everything else was easy to figure out just can't get the L/R sorted out.
Yes sounds like you're using HDMI handshake. This happens when you have a bad HDMI cable. Or could be because you're regularly plugging and unplugging the cable that resulted to it being affected by HDMI handshake.Okay have a dumb question but when using the Nvidia Shield and watching either Netflix or Hulu, if I pause and click to another input then come back to the Shield input its like the Netflix-Hulu apps have crashed like they lost connection to the internet.
I don't remember having this trouble with my Marantz 7704, does it have something to do with the HDMI handshake when changing inputs?
Under Power control on the Shield everything is turned off.Yes sounds like you're using HDMI handshake. This happens when you have a bad HDMI cable. Or could be because you're regularly plugging and unplugging the cable that resulted to it being affected by HDMI handshake.
Hi, I am a new member here - I believe referred to as a "noob"? Perhaps that term is no longer in common use, but being a noob, I wouldn't know...
In any case, I have just acquired and done initial setup on my spanking new CX-A5200... and can't seem to locate a feature which I have a hard time believing doesn't exist.
With my Oppo-105 (my previous "pre/pro"), there was a special way of enabling ".1" information to be sent to the "Sub/LFE" output - specifically from "2.0" sources, like a normal audio CD.
With the CX-A5200, there seems to be NO information being sent to the Sub output when I am playing "2.0" material, and no amount of wading through a lot of menus has come up with a solution. Grrr.
To be clear, there is no problem with the sub [configuration] itself - it is there, and it works - either with the "Test Tone" function, or with actual "5.1" material.
But just not with "normal" music... hopefully, I have missed whatever trick is required here.
I use the "Extra Bass" setting in my setup, and it works fine. Seems to be the same as the "Both" setting on my previous RX-Z11. Seems crazy to set my mains to "Small" since they are Definitive Technology BP7000's!There is another feature in the options screen to enable something called "extra bass". The options screen you pull up when playing something - not the setup screen.
In almost all cases you would not want to enable this but you may have a legit reason. I know little to nothing about magies.
I'm not in front of the computer so I can't be more specific at the moment.
I likewise will use the extra bass setting on my systems with mains that have response to 20 Hz...why not?I use the "Extra Bass" setting in my setup, and it works fine.

I too have mains that play down to 18hz with as much authority as my subwoofers and I only use them full range when listening to stereo music without subwoofers.I likewise will use the extra bass setting on my systems with mains that have response to 20 Hz...why not?
