It seems to keep popping up at that approx. every 2 1/2 - 3 weeks, but only lasts a couple days. I finally bit this last round, but keep an eye open as it seems like it should come around again...It WAS that low. that deal is dead. Let's hope there will be another one.
You have a choice of either ......Some help needed on the 1070 model:
I just installed last week two Front Presence speakers, so I could run now a 5.1.2 config.
As sources I have available ATV4k (iOSTV 12 beta 2, Plex, Netflix, HBO, etc), FireTV 4k (Plex, Netflix), PS4 (Bluray), all movies of course with DD, DD+, DTS, etc...
At least with the PS4 - Bluray (output set to LPCM) I should be able to see at least DTS or DTS-MA or DD on the display of the 1070, correct (of course the bluray audio is set accordingly)? But I dont.
It doesnt matter which source I choose, all I get is either Straight/PCM or DD Sur (depending on Audio Decoder). I can see anything like DTS, DTS-MA, DD+, etc.
What am I doing wrong here? I would assume setting the receiver to Straight, it should display with the Bluray from the PS4 accordingly DD+, DTS-MA, etc?
Where might you be seeing this? I'd be real surprised if it's from an authorized dealer or not refurbished.
PS -- B&H has a couple used ones, they're still more $$$ than that.
Since you are posting on both forums...Well I have been using the 2070 now since Saturday and have just removed it from my setup and replaced it with the Marantz 7012. No matter what I did I couldn't get it to sound as good or as immersive as the Marantz 7012 or my previous receiver the Pioneer SC-LX56. I ran the YPAO setup twice and also went in and manually tweaked settings but it still didn't give me good results.
What I was experiencing was a very small and front based sound stage. It was like I had a wall of sound in front of me coming from my TV and not around me. Bass was also no where near as good and very toned down.
Since you are posting on both forums...
If your speakers are all set to small (and they have to be for those Apex speakers) - bass comes only from subwoofer, so the bass can be toned down only if subwoofer is not properly set / integrated.
What are your settings?
What crossover are you using?
What is the subwoofer level (on AVR and on SVS)?
Have you measured your system response (REW, XTZ Room Analyzer or something similar)?
ARC issues are quite common as you yourself pointed out having read. As the installer indicated, give it a try. If it fails, then you have the optical work around.Hi guys since i will be installing the 2070 to a samsung 75q8fn.. I heard sometimes you may run into arc issues..I had a installer say that what they do since its a known issue on the tv return arc having issues with hdmi if i use the tv streaming options ect that its always safe to run a optical from tv to avr in case the hmi return channel gives issues with the tv sending down sound.. he says theirs less issues when sound and video is going up from avr to tv that there is from it going down from tv to avr?? My concern is everyone seems to have some type of issues with arc video or sound.. Should i be concerned ..
