I can't think of one single reason that this would be a good idea. The 7008 is better in every way. Why dumb it down with the 6007's processor? What do you anticipate will happen?

More power to speakers as7008 is no longer wasting it in processing. That is the concept of pre pro or separates!

Processing has nothing to do with the power output of a receiver. The 7008 is far superior in every way as has been said. If you want you should hook up everything to the 7008 and then take the pre out left and right of the 7008 and connect that to your 6007's analog input and use it to power your mains to off load some of the power of the 7008 but that would be the only benefit of even having the 6007 in the chain.

I understand exactly what you purpose to do and how the AVR actually functions.
It is your system do what you want, even if it is wrong.
..... :wink: back at you.

I know the pre/pro concept. You won't gain any extra power. To my knowledge, all of the DSP circuitry is powered by DC (low)voltage, converted internally. It should use the same power whether it's processing a signal or not. If you can hear any gains by doing this, you should consider getting into the spy business. Tony's idea might be useful if you're splitting hairs, but to say that's a stretch would be an understatement.

Well, it boils down to the concept of separates as opposed to avrs. I now know that's not the way some folks want to go. Some do swear by it. Since I have tha spare 6007 I raised the topic. Thanks for your response!
I like an answer, if any for my Marantz bluray UD7007. Ian not able to control it with the phone app as it is not shown in the devices 😳all connection to network or ok in the bluray. Wifi etc
Thanks for interest shown

but the thing is, your not using separates. And the advantage of separates is using a better amp than the one in the avr. That's not what you've proposed. At best, it's a lateral move. Using two AVr's (especially when the second one is lesser than the first) is not using separates, despite being two separate boxes. You would see recommendations for doing it, if it was a good idea. I'm just trying to save you disappointment. Sell the 6007 and buy a real amp.

Thanks for your suggestions!
Now any suggestion how to control my Marantz UD7007 with my iPhone app. I had already posted on this!

Try connecting the 7007(remote in) to the 7008(remote out) via this connection. Set the switch to ext(external). You should be able to control it through the avr/app that way. The factory avr remote will be able to control the 7007 this way also.

Yes. I am quite aware of this. However that's not what I want. In fact the app should connect with 7007 as it does with 7008 , thro wifi. While it works fine with 7008, not so with 7007😳 the connection you mentioned is only meant for the remote stick.
