I'm just trying to understand how this worked.\nAfter you ordered it, are they shipping something to you or are you supposed to download some type of firmware intyo you AVR?\n@lovinthehd , did you follow this?\n\nNo, it’s a local audio store. They had the receiver as a demo unit for people to test. So When I saw 1100 I was trying to keep it in the 1000 dollar range for a receiver. So I jumped on it, I called and they said the unit has everything with it. \n\nWhen I showed up I checked what it had, and room EQ microphone for speaker balance was missing. That is an important piece of equipment. I couldn’t find it anywhere, used or what not. Couldn’t find it on Marantz either, but when I called they had it available. So now it’s complete.\n\nPurchased it yesterday. Didn’t want to buy it without being able to get the proper equipment.\n\nBut as we had discussed above, I think the demo units do not come with it. The place is an authorized Marantz dealer. They had 4 other demo marantz products, even newer ones. 7015 and 8015 and those did not have the EQ microphone either. \n\nCause I offered to purchase anything spare they had in stock since I was unable to locate the product online.
