This thread is for discussion of the 2020 Marantz AVR models: NR1711/SR5015/SR6015/SR7015 

------  The 2019 NR1510 will continue for 2020/2021 and therefore will continue to be discussed in the 2019 Marantz AVR Owner's thread.

What's new or to be added via firmware update for the 2020 models?

- Features added to the 2019 models continue (and now also added to the SR7015 as the 2018 SR7013 was not replaced in 2019)
-----  HDCP 2.3 all HDMI inputs/outputs
-----  Dolby Atmos Height Virtualization (factory default is ON, so with a 7.1 or less setup, this feature is enabled; works with DD/DTS/PCM w/no Audyssey limitation)
-----  Main Zone HDMI/TV Audio distribution (multi channel) down mixed to 2CH for Zone 2/HEOS speakers  - press the [Zone 2 Source] button on the front panel and select "Source" instead of the actual source name (formerly only on 2019 SR6014)
-----  USB input supports both FAT32 and NTFS
-----  ALL ZONE STEREO setting added to Smart Select buttons
-----  Bluetooth transmission to single set of headphones/hearing aids (with "Bluetooth only" or "Bluetooth + speakers" settings) - volume adjustment via headphone/hear aids only
-----  HDMI Custom Input Assign (able to assign a single HDMI input jack to multiple source names to enable saving separate audio input assignments for each, ie. HDMI, digital, analog))
-----  HDMI Input Auto Rename (AVR will automatically change the input name if recognized, eg. if using PS4, the name would change to PS4)
-----  Airplay disable (ON/OFF) - so AVR is not seen as an Airplay device (eg. if kids in the house that might accidently select it as a source)
-----  Roon tested (ie. use Airplay or USB)
-----  Able to "overlay" the volume bar, INFO and OPTION menus on all 4k (and now 8k as well for 2020 models) video with Setup menu displayed on black background - note that <Video Conversion> must be enabled for the "overlay" to occur; however, the <i/P Scaler> can be disabled.

- A single HDMI 2.1/HDCP 2.3/8k/40Gbps input (8K/60Hz and 4K/120Hz pass-through) with all remaining HDMI inputs 4k/HDMI 2.0b/HDCP 2.3 -  [Note that the 40Gbps number is more likely to be the number the industry adopts at large vs the 48Gbps initial target.  The 2020 LG OLED X series just released with 40Gbps ports.]
- Both main zone HDMI monitor outputs (SR5015/SR6015/SR7015) are also 8k/HDCP 2.3 while the Zone 2 monitor output (SR6015/SR7015/SR8015) remains 4k/HDMI 2.0b/HDCP 2.3
- AUX 2 button on remote relabeled to 8k
- AUX 1 button on remote relabeled to AUX
- Pre-amp mode (formerly only featured on the flagship models) - physically disconnects all on board amps when only external amps are being used (SR6015/SR7015/SR8015 only) regardless of whether only 2 speakers up to a maximum of 11 speakers (13 - SR8015) are connected
- Speaker Preset (1/2) - Store two sets of speaker settings (including separate Audyssey EQ for each ie. no longer need to use USB or MultEQ Editor app for this); also added to Smart Select buttons
- Gaming enhancements - all HDMI inputs are able to pass Variable Refresh Rate (VRR); Quick Frame Transport (QFT); Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM - previously added on some older models via firmware update) )
- Video/Movie enhancements - all HDMI inputs are able to pass Dynamic HDR, HDR10+; Quick Media Switching (QMS)
- Height 3/Front Wide speaker support (SR8015 only)
-  Auro 3D Center Height (CH) with Auro 3D 13.1 support (SR8015 only)
-  Able to use DTS Neural:X on all audio including Dolby Digital (formerly removed from 2019 models)
- HDCP Setup - sets the HDCP version (Auto/1.4/2.3) for an HDMI input source
ECO Mode defaults to "Auto"
- Volume Limit - variable from 60-80 / -20dB to 0dB (vs. fixed 60/70/80 - -20dB/-10dB/0dB on older models)
Bass Sync can be enabled in DIRECT/PURE DIRECT modes with a multi channel audio source (SR7015/SR8015)
-  Video - Information menu displays whether ALLM / QMS / QFT enabled on input signal
-  All models use the same AK4458VN DAC.
- Dolby Surround Upmixer (DSU) - able to up-mix to a single Surround Back speaker (ie. 6.1 setup) when the "Speaker Virtualizer" is OFF

- Added via future firmware update:
- Screen saver - moving MARANTZ icon (after no video input or same menu displayed for more than 5 minutes - Default = OFF); also moving MUTE icon (December 2020)
- DTS:X Pro - support for up to 7.2.6 (with ability to select either Top Middle or Top Surround+Center Height) or 9.2.4 (ie. Front Wide) - SR8015 only (December 2020)

What features weren't carried forward from the 2019 (NR1710/SR5014/SR6014 models?
-  Front HDMI input removed (NR1711/NR5015/NR6015)

----------------------

Notes:
1.  Although all models feature two subwoofer pre-outs, only the SR6015/SR7015/SR8015 have independent subwoofer volume control of each subwoofer.
2.  All models have a 3 year warranty if purchased new/open-box from an authorized dealer
3.  All refurbished models have a 1 year warranty if purchased from an authorized refurb dealer

If this is your first visit to this thread, and you want to ask a question about one of the 2020 Marantz AVR models, either one that you own or one that you are thinking of buying, please provide the following information to allow for better responses to your questions:

(a) Identify the model number in question (eg. SR5015), as there are 4 different models (NR and SR series) discussed in this thread. Also if you have not posted in several days since your initial post, please post the model # again so we don't have to back track to learn which model you are referencing.

(b) Identify what you've done so far to troubleshoot the issue and what the front panel is displaying if an audio issue.

(c) Unless you indicate what settings have been changed, the assumption will be that all settings are on the factory defaults (ie. usually "Auto"),

(d) If the advice given seems to simplistic or obvious, don't shoot the advice giver as we have no idea of the level of your technical understanding,

(e) If there is no response to your post, it either means no one knows the answer or it has simply been overlooked so please repost if you still haven't resolved your issue,

(f) If you post a question in this thread and are given advice and either it or some other advice (eg. Marantz phone support, Marantz "Ask a Question" email support) resolves your issue, have the common courtesy to post back what solution resolved your issue so others can learn from it as well,

(g) If the issue is not user error or not just a misunderstanding on how the AVR works, please call Marantz support so the issue is registered,

(h) When responding to another post that is providing assistance to you, please press the "Quote" button in the lower right corner of that other poster's response so that response is also listed with your new post to provide some context, and,

(i) If you don't live in either the USA or Canada, please either indicate your country location in your profile or your post as some Marantz models from other regions in the world differ in configuration from their USA/Canada counterparts otherwise responses made in this thread are in regards to the USA/Canada models only.
