hey marantz peoples, i've got a question about the SR7007, i copied this information directly out of the user manual, page 57, hope it displays correctly:

edit: (it wouldn't display correctly as it was a table so i used * symbol(s) next to respective listing catagories that are bolded & underlined to denote colums)


Specifications of supported files:

Sampling frequency* Bit rate** Extension/File Type***

WMA (Windows Media Audio) 32/44.1/48 kHz* 48 192 kbps** .wma***

MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer-3) 32/44.1/48 kHz* 32 320 kbps** .mp3***

WAV 32/44.1/48 kHz* ** .wav***

MPEG-4 AAC 32/44.1/48 kHz* 16 320 kbps** .aac/.m4a/.mp4***

FLAC (Free Lossless Audio Codec) 32/44.1/48/88.2/96 kHz* ** .flac***


my question is notice the WAV & FLAC neither of them list any numerical amount for bit rates, only - (a dash) what does this dash mean? does it mean all standard bitrates i.e. 44.1/88.2/96/176.4 & 192khz (it can't mean none) just trying to figure out why it's left blank.

in the legend for the table there is nothing footnoted about what the dash (-) stands for. it clearly shows the bit rate for WMA, MP3 & MPEG4 file types.

the information listed in the table is also shown for audio files used via USB HD (hard drive) or USB TD (thumb drive), PC & NAS (via ethernet) however, there is no information listed for the limitations on digital coax or optical connections (most receivers & pre-amps list this information, my receivers and pre-amp is 96/24 for those digital inputs)


almost all receivers & pre-amps (not all a couple are free of this limitation that have recently been released) have the limitation of audio streaming via ethernet in, digital coax & optical of 96/24 & USB. on those receivers only HDMI can support 192/24 sources.

i'm trying to understand if this new model receiver has overcome those limitations by accepting up to 192/24 on all digital inputs if available from the sources. i'm just stumped by the (-) dashes and the fact that they don't list the input spec's for the other digital coax & optical connectors.

i hope this makes sense. can someone give me some insight on this for this unit and what they feel the information in the table is saying about the (-) dashes.

please & thank you in advance!

I know I'm late to the party, but sollardadd, I think I may have an answer for your question. While not the 7007, but for my 6006, I looked up the same chart. There's a paragraph, just above the chart that you mention, and it specifies the bit rates of both WAV and FLAC file playback. WAV is limited to 16 bit, and FLAC is 16 or 24. If you could point me to a copy of the manual for the 7007, I'd be happy to see if the same information is listed.

found a copy of the manual online. It's listed below the chart. It says WAV Quantization is 16bit, and FLAC is 16 or 24 bit. Hope that helps.

I posted this elsewhere on the net, but thought I'd check here too.
Thanks!

Sorry if this has been covered (if so, please direct me to the post so I can check it out).

I've been having some issues lately when I run iTunes from my Mac via airplay to the Marantz 6006. Not so much trouble sending the audio and listening but once I switch inputs (from Net/USB) to any other input, I lose audio. Picture still comes through fine, just no audio. If I disconnect the power, and replug in, everything comes back fine. Any ideas?

example - watching TV - audio fine, switch to Net/USB and stream iTunes - audio fine, switch back to TV - no audio
or turn on receiver, stream iTunes (all fine) and then switch to TV - no audio

I haven't had this issue before, so this is kinda odd.
I have an airport express hooked up to the Marantz to share my internet connection rather than straight ethernet. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Just dropping by to say 'hey!' to Marantz owner as I have just joined you guys. Picked up NR1403. Posted a thread already about it in the receiver forum but thought I'd write something here too..

anyone know if NR1403 will be a good match with HKTS 15 speakers? (My old set up was HKTS 15 speakers + HK 154 receiver..)

also.. while I was in the store some dude seemed pretty excited about a crazy bargain he just got... was telling me about how he bought these 3k speeakers out of someone's trunk for 100 bucks.... told him about white van scam... poor guy was in the store to buy a receiver to go with those speakers too..

These scammers are getting fairly elaborate with a website and everything.. he told me the brand name (Bergmann) so I checked it out and jeeez..

Hi all -

I wanted to see if there are any 5007 owners in this thread. I'm debating between the Onkyo 818 and the Marantz 5007. For price reasons & XT32 capability, I'm leaning towards an Onkyo 818, but am a bit concerned with Quality Control in Onkyo. Hence, just wanted to get any owners thoughts on the 5007, since I haven't heard too much about QC issues and it does have XT capability and two subs out just as the Onkyo 818 (trying to make sure I'm future-proofed ) Any thoughts would be great. Cheers!

After 13+ years of flawless performance I recently replaced my Marantz SR8000 with the SR5007. It sounds great, offers plenty or performance and was extremely easy to set up and use.

@Skafish -

Thanks for the feedback. I'm still going back and forth with my choice between the 5007 & 818. But I want to decide soon so that I can get my HT up and running soon.

Look into Paradigms, Monitor series, best bang for the buck.

I have a sr6007 and I found the receiver hot running 7.1 surround sound. I also found that the back panel was not as sturdy as my Denon AVR 988. The metal is thin in the back and you can see it cave in a little when pushing in the cables.

I do love the sound though, nice and clean sound. The setup was a lot easier then the Denon but now I am used to my AVR 988. I also love the look of the Marantz receivers with the small porthole. If it was up to me, I rather have no window on the receiver and have everything just display on the screen with a touch of a button.

I saw some receivers where they have a huge window and hate that look. I prefer more metal, like some of the high end amps, not say this receiver is high end of any sort but sufficient for my needs.

I apologize in advance if I offended anyone but these are just my opinions.

Thanks, I have had them for about 3 weeks. I think the impedance is 6 ohm nominal but the PSB website says that on the data sheet but says 8 ohm on the spec sheet. I did audition them for a week in my house before purchase though.

I do listen anywhere between -10db to - 5 db with no distortion but I listen to 2 channel. Sorry I forgot to mention, that I added a Parasound Halo A23 to the preouts and the receiver runs a lot cooler. But it did get so hot that I couldn't put my hand on it before and I left a lot of clearance on top and back is open in the rack. I have had about 6 receivers and never had this issue.

So with an amp added to the avr, it doesn't get warm but geez without it was so hot.

Yes I noticed a difference whether or not it is a placebo effect. The acoustic sounds are more pronounced if that makes sense but this topic of external amps can get heated so I will stop here. I plan on maybe getting an A31 or A51 later too.

I just noticed that you have the Paradigm studio 100's. Congrats and I was attracted to them as well because I love the curved cabinet they are in. I got to hear them but the dealer I went to, wouldn't let me hear them at high volumes and he kept trying to push the studio 60's in which I was not interested in them. Kept telling me he had them in stock and that I would have to wait. I told him I don't mind waiting but this guy was just not listening. I kind of got a bad experience but oh well. You can't click with everyone.

Enjoy your speakers and your nice sound system.
