    Networking issues

    G'day, I'm using HEOS through my phone to play tunes on my AVR Marantz SR5012 just lately for some unknown reason the AVR turns itself off and HEOS say's "Can not detect device" To get up and going again I have to do a full factory reset. I've tried a network reset but no good. The AVR loses all networking info and I don't know why. My computer is connected by wifi and I have no connectivity issues with wifi or modem. I've spoken to Marantz support they told me to take it into one of there service departments to get it checked out, but before I have to pull my system to bits I wanted to see if anyone has had the same or similar issues and how you solved them. Thanks in advance!
  2. Item: Marantz NR1508 Location: Gleneagle, QLD Price: $550.00 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Extra Info: as new condition, this is a slimline unit rated #1 in its class, best bang for buck slimline AVR on the shelves. Selling on average $780.00 +/- new! This AVR has been out of the box less than a month as I was upgrading my entire AV system to 4K UHD. It has 50wpc/5.1/HDMI,(ARC)/USB/BLUETOOTH/HEOS/AUDYSSEY/SPOTIFY + INTERNET RADIO. It easily drives my 4 x Klipsch R-28F towers and RP450c centre. My reason for selling is I wanted more wpc and upgraded to the bigger SR5012. This unit is flawless and has the original packaging/manual/warranty/remote/Audyssey tripod/AM-FM antennas. Price is firm as not fussed if sells or not. Pictures:

    Can I use two AVR's?

    Yes others have recommended amps and integrated amps but I still go back to the main issue I believe that is the speakers are not getting the maximum juice they required to get to 98db.

    Agreed, this is why I'm constantly questioning my outputs and I use 4 x Klipschs R28f's which are I believe quite efficient speakers.

    So I'm aware of this now and the SR5012 being the one with the most power has the multi channel preouts

    My SR5012 has multi channel pre out but my NR1508 doesn't.

    Sorry about that, but it's the other way around I want to use my SR5012/100 wpc for 2.1 and NR1508/50wpc for 5.1

    Can I use two AVR's?

    I apologize if this topic has been covered recently. Is it possible to run one 2.1 out of one AVR and 5.1 out of the other. I have 2 Marantz AVR's one 100 wpc and the other 50 wpc I want to use the 100 wpc for 2.1 and the 50 wpc for 2.1. My understanding is that you can split the pair and the 100 wpc AVR can be the mains AVR. A friend told me in the day it was a simple switch to split the channels from 2.1 to 5.1. using two AVR's. The reason being is again it's my understanding that when in 2.1 mode is being used the remaining channels are still drawing power minimising the possible maximum output of the 2 speakers being used. I'm trying to gain more db output from my mains. My current set up max's out the main speakers at under 84db metered. I have all the speaker levels close to maximum so can't get anymore out of the 100 wpc AVR. Thanks in advance!!

    HDMI (lesson learned)!

    Well I don't know what planet you live on, but the one I live on deals with facts, at the end of the day your opinion and your colleagues opinions are on one side of this argument regardless of how long you've been in the industry. The other side refutes your argument. It's pointless having ago at me when I didn't write the reviews did I, but I will still recommend people checkout the info for themselves because there getting ripped off if they pay high end prices when they don't need to. End of story!
  10. Keen to get peoples views on this Marantz especially for a music.

    It was my experience and as mentioned there is plenty of information regarding this topic out there. Cnet.com which I believe to be a credible source cover it in great detail and as a result of the information I took on board fixed my issue. I'm always learning and more than happy to be enlightened.

    Thanks Rawl, very interesting though I guess there's an argument for and against. It was definitely an exercise worth noting. Cheers!

    I can't fault them, don't know why some run them down must be a Ford & Holden thing. Plenty of style though that's what caught my eye. I'm happy with the ones I got at the moment, just need to juice up my AVR now.

    Optimum performance or thereabouts!

    Thanks for the advice I'll give it a go Cheers
