Marantz sound settings help,


Novice Member
I have a Marantz 5009 and am wondering about the different sound modes. I feel as if there around 7-8 different setting available - how to chose which one is right for TV and Music?

At the bottom of the remote there are four sound mode buttons.

While playing something from the TV, press the Movie button and you will be presented with this screen where you can choose/change the sound mode. The AVR will remember this and switch to it when playing this format again.
(The items on the menu will vary depending on what the source signal is.)

I would suggest Dolby PLIIx Cinema or DTS Neo:6 Cinema as these are up mixers which will expand stereo to all available speakers e.g 5.1. (This is not the same a Multi Ch Stereo which just duplicates the two front channels in all speakers.)
