Question about Marantz ZS5300 6-Channel Amplifier

1 Answer

Marantz Zs5300 only zone 3 seems to output

I have checked speakers etc and swapped them around and proved that only Zone 3 is outputting anything. Is this a known fault?

Is there anyway to get an amplified signal to my zone two speakers without an additional amplifier? Should I be using the Speaker "B" outputs?

Check your speaker setup menu to make sure that zone 2 is enabled. Also, a lot of receivers only allow analog inputs to be used for zone 2, so if you are using something like hdmi, or optical than this might be the problem.

My problem is conect bose 901v to reciver yahama rx-v657

Here are three options to connect your EQ901B or a BOSE 901® Equalizer to a typical Audio Video Receiver (AVR). See:

Option 1: Adding a Separate Power Amplifier - Best Option
This option requires that you add a separate power amplifier.
1) Connect the pre-out main left and right to the EQ901 inputs 1 and 2, and the EQ901 outputs 1 and 2 to the power amplifier inputs left and right
2) Connect your 901 speaker to the power amplifier outputs
3) The equalized signal will now play through the front left and right speaker outputs in the stereo and home theater modes.

Option 2: Setting up Your EQ901 B Using Zone 2 Loop
1) Connect Zone 2 pre-out to the EQ901 input
2) Connect the EQ901 output to any unused analog input
3) Select the Zone 2 source as any input (i.e. CD player)
4) Select the Zone 1 source to the input selected in step 2
The equalized signal will now play through the front speaker outputs in Stereo Mode Zone 1.

Option 3: Setting up the EQ901 B Using Only a Single Source
1) Use this option if you have only one source. This example uses a CD player
2) Connect the EQ901 B in between the CD player and any AVR input
3) This may require the 2V input mode on the EQ901B
The equalized signal will play only the single source (i.e. CD) when the input referenced in line 2 is chosen

In regard to my Marantz AV Surround Receiver, Model number SR5005, I cannot get the Zone2 speakers to play. I have followed all the instructions, and nothing works. Does anyone know what I need to do...

have the same model. just got it to work. but, struggling with one part. here's the scoop. 1. Plug your second zone speakers into the SURR BACK/AMP ASSIGN speaker outputs on the unit. 2. You need to "amp assign" the speakers to zone 2 by pressing AMP, MENU, select SPEAKER SETUP, AMP ASSIGN and scroll to ZONE 2 - this will force the sound to the speakers that you plugged in. 3 - Turn on Zone 2 (press Z2, press ON button on remote). Use the UP/DOWN arrows to select the input for Zone 2. I've only been successful in selecting USB and plugging my iphone in for zone 2. For some reason, I cannot get the SAT (cable box) to play in both zone 1 and zone 2 at the same time. But, I can get SAT in zone 1 and USB in zone 2. Hope that helps. Let me know if you can solve my issue...

Our 2nd zone won't work, we get the error saying check SP wires. The wires seem connected correctly. We also can't change the volume on zone 2. The Yamaha unit is working otherwise.


U cant get an amplified out put form ur av receiver for zone 2. speaker a A and B is the same out put of frond left and right. it is not ZONE 2 output. U can get only a pre output for zone to from this receiver. U nee a separate stereo amplifier for using zone 2 .put an amplifier in the other room, connect the zone 2 pre out to it. And do the following setup in ur av receiver .

The receiver shows check speaker cable because its amplifier minimum impedance is 8 ohms . when u connect other speaker in speaker the total impedance will come under 4 ohms. Speaker b is not ZONE 2 in this amplifier

1. press the input selector button A or B to select the source component you want to setup.

2. press and hold LEARN (on remote) button about 3 seconds by using a boll pen or similar object ( SETUP and the selected component name appear alternately in the display window.)

3. press up or down arrow to select "zone2"

4. press LEARN to complete the Zone 2 setup.

5. press source select up arrow to display Zone2 in the window.

6. press an input selector button to select input source u want to listen to in the second room

7. u can control the component by using the component control area button



Yamaha rx-v1600. I am failing in my attempt to get sund out of zone 2 speakers. I have the 2nd zone speakers hooked into surround zone 2/3. In primary zone I only have center and surround back as my fronts...

After 6.5 hours, I am now listening to music outside on my patio using my rxv-1600!
Connect your speakers to the Presence Zone 2(3) output on back. Then power up amp and select zone 2 on front of amp. Nothing will happen, because as I found out, you must route an input to zone 2 or 3. Which is cool, because you can listen to something outside that is different from your inside.
You select what to route to the zone by pressing Zone Control button, just right of zone 2 and 3 button. While you see red zone light blinking, rotate input select knob to prefered input, i.e. radio/cd/aux/etc... also, you can adjust volume by pressing zone control and turning up the volume knob, only while ZONE light is blinking.
hope that helps, i know i was frustrated figuring that out!

Multiple speakers on zone 2 0r 3 speaker output terminals

I wouldn't hook anything up except what Yamaha recommends to the speaker output terminals. That's pretty much asking for trouble!


Onkyo tx sr705 & bose 901

No. Active Equalization is required for the 901's and not to be used with any non-901 speakers.

Zone 2

I am sure this isn't it, but if all components are connected digitally Zone 2 won't work. It only allows analog connections, so anything attached via HDMI, etc. will not be able to be output to Zone 2.
