Home Theater Receiver turn itself off at higher volumes

My Marantz sr5002 likes to run itself off at higher volumes. A simple on and off will reset the breaker (or whatever) but I can't imagine that the two stereo speakers I have plugged in are too much output for the receiver. Wires do not touch in the back. I am worried that it will get worse if I buy better speakers. Is this how it is supposed to act or should I get it looked at? Should I pay better attention to wattage of output and speakers?

Could be that the speaker are being over-driven. The harder a speaker is pushed, the lower the resistance becomes, and the receiver could be sensing it as being a short and shutting itself down to protect the amp.

SOURCE: no right output

When you say it didnt switch when changing cables?? Well if you have no output on the right speaker and you put the left speaker on and still had no output then its your speaker as the problem should have switched from right to left if the problem is in the reciver. Now you could check and see if there are any bent control shafts as this is common durring a move and that would account for the problem or there are internal speaker fuse that may have popped out but this ones doubtfull, or the preamp or main amp printed cuircut board has a crack in them?? If you checked all mof these and need assistance with this repair you can go to the manufactures website to see how and where you can send or take the unit for repair. Good Luck

SOURCE: universal home theater remote for Pioneer VSX-305 audio/video stereo receiver

Don't spend a lot of money for a universal remote. Radio Shack has some good buys. I think you are the same person who is having problems with a 305. Get rid of it. You can make a quantum leap at Amazon for less than $200 for a Pioneer.

SOURCE: Receiver won't let volume go higher than -7 dB

Actually, -7 db and above woul be quite load.

Anyway, I am not very familar with the Pioneer GUI auto setup. But, am aware of how AVR are set-up.

If you have set up the home theatre by auto/manual setup then please check the channel levels whether any of your channels settings is at +7.0db.

If so, reduce this setting where it more +7.0, then you would be able to raise the overall main setting from the volume control to go higher than -7db.( by as much as you've lowered the particular channel setting)

Please do let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: Max. wattage for speakers w/ Technics Receiver SA-GX100?

I too have a Technics SA-GX100 and it's rated at 2 x 40W @ 8 Ohms. I have the Technics SB-2840 floor model speakers hooked to it, which are rated at 200W Music Input - 8 ohms. It sounds very nice just to be a 40W receiver.

How do I connect my laptop to my Marantz SR5002 receiver

Typically, your laptop would have a headphone output if you want to SEND audio to the receiver.

Anything that has a headphone output can be adapted to feed an RCA cable pair for standard stereo to any audio device with a standard RCA input. Get a cable like the one described here:

and connect it into any available analog input EXCEPT "Phono". Turn the source player volume up.

You may have to find the sound controls on the laptop to raise the volume high enough for the reciver to use.

I have a marantz sr 7001 amp and am running canton 4ohm speakers to front and centre should my amp get really hot and go into protect mode when I am giving it some serious volume

it is not made to drive 4 ohm loads.also if you measure the impedance on the speaker,at some frequencies,it is closer to 3 ohms.This will cause the amplifier to shut down.Today's amplifiers are embellished specs.the old marantz 2325 was 125 watts a channel and weighed 80 pounds.It would eat alive some of the 1000 watt home theater amps of today.Marantz is very nice stuff.

Hearing my television through my home theater system

Without knowing anything about your TV receiver all I can assume is that the TV has a least an RCA analog audio OUT. Run that to any available analog input on the HTS. make sure the TV's audio controls (hidden in a menu somewhere) is set to Fixed so the TV volume won't affect the HTS volume. Then you can turn the TV speakers off and still listen through the HTS.

You'll only get stereo this way. Ideally, you would have a digital audio source for the TV audio signal.

Home theater with cabel

Assuming you've got an extra input on your home theater's receiver, it's pretty simple:
On the back of your cable box (assuming you have a cable box), look for "Audio Out", a pair of red and white connections.
Run a pair of audio cables from there, to an available input on your receiver.  That's all you need to do.
You should turn the actual television volume down, when watching TV through your home theater, as you may get a slight echo from the two audio sources.

Marantz SR 5002 Won't power on

I've just been told by my AV person that is a known flaw in the SR5002 that the power supply runs hot, blows out, and sometimes takes out other components by cooking them. Thanks Marantz. How about a recall?
