Marantz SR7500 Home receiver, Digital CD will not play
There are two CD outputs:
&From out of noweher after 3 months of simple operation, the CD digital does not work, I tried different cables, everything- so it is not the cables, but either the connection output on rera of receiver; or inside unit in guts.
The CD analogue works
nice to be living in the past again. Thanks Marantz, not a good unit to only last three months and burn-out the digital CD portion, and I can only use analgue, so why own a Marantz?

If you need an analogue output, you can tap stereo analogue audio by using one of the two sets of "pre-out" RCA jacks on the back of your receiver. These provide "headphone like" output power, and will not overload any analogue input connected to it EXCEPT MIC and PHONO inputs on the 2nd device. If it's digital audio output you need, there's an HDMI monitor out, that will provide digital audio to another HDMI input equipped device. You'll have to get a relatively cheap adaptor if you need this digital audio output in another digital format/connection (like the popular S/PDIF optical or coaxial).
I have a Marantz 7.1 AV receiver (sr5500) and I run a 5.1 set up for home theatre and use the 2 extra channels to run a pair of outdoor stereo speakers... When I first set it up I also found I could not get a digital signal output, only analog, after reading the manual(!) I discovered that it can only output an analog signal...so I have used the phono outputs on my blu-ray player into the CD input of the AV amp and play CDs outside through this and it also outputs the optical digital signal into the AV amp through the DVD input...my iPod also plays through a dock and it's analog output to the speakers outside through another (CD-R) anolog input on the amp... Hope this helps
Have you tried plugging it into a different power point in your house? If that doesn't make it stay on it is most likely a power supply issue with the receiver. More often than not it is cheaper to replace a receiver with a broken power supply than to pay someone to fix it.
Page 18 of the manual will walk you thru the audio setup. It has Digital auto, Digital, Analog auto, Analog. Once this is set you should be fine, if you still have an issue, post a comment and I will help you further. Hope this helps
Downloaded the user manual for the Marantz SR 6003 A/V Receiver. In this it stated that if a SACD player was connected to the SR 6003 with an HDMI interface earlier than 1.2 then the digital data from the SACD could not be transferred over the HDMI cable to the SR 6003. This implies, but does not confirm, that if a SACD player does provide a digital output on an HDMI 1.3 interface, then SACD audio data can be transmitted to the SR 6003 and, presumably, decoded and converted to 6 analogue streams which are then amplified and deleivered to the (6) analogue output terminals.
I'm fairly sure that the native DSD data from the SACD has to be converted to PCM before transmission over the HDMI interface which is better than nothing. What I was hoping for though was for the data to be transferred in DSD and converted in the SR 6003 directly to analogue, avoiding two intermediate conversions. This ideal solution can be done by only a few SACD/ A/V Receiver combinations, which is silly considering that it is also the simplest. One example, which has made a big impression amongst high fi enthusiasts, is the OPPO DV-980H Universal DVD player (plays any audio or video disc and costs almost nothing) and the Integra DTC 9.8 home theatre processor.
