    Are there any kind of "parental control" settings on this receiver.....like an access code you can program or anything like that?

    I need a way to keep my oldest son from using it when I'm not home. So far I'm looking at building a cabinet to lock it in, but hope someone has a better suggestion. TIA...Mike

    let me know if they have a wife proof model. [​IMG]
    How about mounting it and the remote out of reach?

    Oldest son is 17 and 6'4", so kind of hard to mount it out of reach [​IMG]
    New home will have a dedicated HT with a locked door but that's not for another 2 years. I'm considering putting everything in a cabinet that I can lock. The joys of parenting....

    What's he doing? Playing it too loud? Messing up all the settings?

    I agree with Mike Mathius, if your oldest son is into HT and is messing with your receiver, then you should get him his very own.

    You're trying to keep your 17-year-old son from using your receiver?

    He has blown my sub and front speakers 2 times each. Cranks it up so he can hear it outside. Doesn't understand distortion and what it does to speakers.

    I did give him my old Pioneer receiver and a couple of speakers.....but of course they don't sound like my setup so he still has to mess with mine.

    At least my sonosub will have a separate amp locked in a box!!

    sounds like a good ass-whoopin is in need.
