Dog is O.K., but I and my equipment are not. (The experiment outside the kennel ends until she is at least a year old). And somehow she knew just which cords to take on... my two most expensive pieces of equipment. She went right through the Sony XBR cord and the H/K receiver cord, and some speaker wire to boot. Neither of the AC cords have the plug-in ends going into the unit itself. Now how I wish that more manufacturers included this nice little feature. Anyway... I have no idea what to do. Do I try to find replacement cords myself and solder them on ? Or am I best leaving this to experts ? (I really don't want to take any chances of having unreliable AC coming into the units, as I know this can be damaging to the equipment). Would my local high-end audio & video store have techinicians that can do this, and how much can I expect to pay ? I purchased the Sony TV from them. Please help !!! I am like the man up the creek without a paddle.
