I just hooked up my old Marantz SR7000 using PCM (Optical) from my TV to the receiver and the Dolby setting. 

 

Its working in surround, but the center channel is a bit too loud; it overwhelms any warmth from the bass module or spatial impact of the surround speakers. 

 

How do I change the settings, like turning down the center speaker?

 

I can't find the remote, but I'll keep looking in case I need it. 

 

(The center channel is turned way up because my dad is hard of hearing and we had it cranked so he could hear the narratives/conversations).

You can enter setup from the front panel on the receiver or from the remote if you find it.  From there goto Speakers > Manual Setup > Levels.  From there you can adjust the db levels of each speaker.

I don't see setup anywhere:

Damn, I hope I can find it. 

Anyone know of a place to get a backup / replacement? I emailed Marantz too.

Remotes.com says theres no known substitute. I would buy a cheap Harmony remote, its likely one of the Marantz models in their database will work if the SR7000 itself isnt there. Just purchase the remote where you can easily return it if it doesnt work.

Or keep checking ebay. You could "probably" use a remote from just about any Marantz receiver from the same era, or even a much later model. They should all use the same codes.


"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.

"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
 
Also have  MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.
