Hi Everyone! My Problem: My 8 year old Denon AVR-1602 5.1 Receiver has just died on me. The receiver turns off by itself after seconds of being on. I did some troubleshooting and narrowed it down to the hardware and don't believe it is worth repairing such an old receiver when the cost of a new one would be the same or cheaper. My Current Setup: Two Sony SS-MF-400H Tower Speakers, 12" Sony SA-WM500 Subwoofer, all were connected to my Denon AVR-1602 reciever. 42" Dynex LCD HDTV, Samsung BluRay player, xbox 360 elite and HTPC (laptop). All use HDMI except the laptop is DVI to HDMI. My HTPC is used 80% of the time. I recently moved to an apartment where the living room spans 20'x12'. My Alternatives: 1. Hook up my computer speakers (Klipsch ProMedia 2.1). Since the laptop doesn't have HDMI output this will require me to split the sound between the HTPC and the TV. I am currently doing this and notice a lot of static when I have both plugged in and therefore manually plug in/out an aux cord from the tv (headphone jack) to the Klipsch multimedia port when I need to listen to the Xbox or BluRay player. 2. Buy a new receiver. 3. All my equipment is dated by new receiver and speakers. I'm leaning towards a 2.0 or 2.1 setup due to my small living room and plan on living in an apartment for the next 4 to 5 years. I also live upstairs and don't really need a lot of bass to annoy my neighbors. What's your suggestions? Do you have other alternatives? Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
