Hi guys

I have a marantz 7011 and when I’m playing an atmos movie the rear surround speakers are not active even though they are setup and working. I changed the amp settings to check this and they are working . Not sure what’s going on or what I need to change .

I have a 7.1.4 setup.

what other amp are you using?
That’s the problem I’m not! I just worked it out.

I can’t believe this.

I had the cinema professionally setup and bought all the gear only to just find the amp can’t handle 7.1.4 Without another amp for extra two channels

Omg!!!!

Next q, I have an old str-db1070 amp sitting doing nothing . Can I use that for the extra speakers ?

I think your problem is that the receiver is only a 9 channel receiver and for 7.1.4 you need an 11 channel receiver. So either you have to have 2 Atmos speakers and not four, or four Atmos speakers and no rear backs. Your other option is to get an 11 channel receiver. That receiver can not do what you want.

Another amp will not solve it, as the receiver can only process 9 channels and NOT 11. So you need a unit that will process 11 channels and 11 channels of amplification. None of the above can be 9 channel. So no, the extra amp will not do you any good. I gave you your options above.

According to the specs on the Marantz website, it can process 11 channels.

Actually according to Marantz, it will process 7.1.4 WITH an external amp. 5.1.4 without...

Yes, the SR7011 is fully capable of processing 11 channels, but as has been mentioned you need a separate amp with at least 2 channels to power the additional 2 speakers.
