Last night, while watching the "Making of" part of 28 Days Later, my Kenwood VR-2080 made a low bass thud sound and went silent. I thought maybe it was the DVD, but it wasn't. I switched to TV audio, same thing. No sound. Tried listening to an audio CD, no sound. When I turn the volume up, it subtly "thuds" through the -50dB range (listenable range), and only when I reach the -10dB range (VERY LOUD normally) can I hear anything at all. Surprisingly enough, when talking to my wife, she said just to get a new receiver (!) because we've had the Kenwood repaired MANY times; about 3 times under warranty, and twice out of warranty. I'm not sure what's wrong with it now, but the repair will cost at least $45 (to check it out). I don't know how much the part/s would be and I'm not sure if I want to find out. So, we looked around today (just barely), and didn't see anything too exciting yet. Not even sure what I'm looking for at this point. Anyway, I have two main questions for the people out there: First, if I decide to ditch the Kenwood, how do I get rid of it? It'll probably work, but needs some work. Do I sell it? Anyone here want it? Second, what's a good receiver (I know, use the Search function :b) that will do DD and DTS with decent power? My speakers aren't that great; my front R/L are old ADCs handed down from my dad. The sub and rears are dinky Yamahas that came from an all-in-one HT-in-a-box solution. Any suggestions are welcome.
