A thousand dollar six year old unit should not be trashed.
You should get ten, fifteen years from an amp, minimum.
I'd think seriously about getting it fixed.
OTOH.... if it costs you a hundred bucks to find out they want $400 to fix it, you're out a hundred bucks. Yeah, I'd probably spend the hundred bucks.
My AVR is about six years old and if it broke I'd get it fixed.
Oh, and this 'obsolete' stuff.... I run processing in my Oppo blu-ray player. It has analog outs direct into the receiver, so I'm not using it for Dolby Truehd, and all that stuff. That's all done in the newer, cheaper, completely up to date blu-ray player. Does your AVR have analog inputs for all five channels?

If it were me I’d just buy another receiver but only you can decide what you should do … - three_sox 20:40:43 06/15/12 ( 0)
