It looks as if my sub output on my yamaha receiver has taken a crap on me. The Receiver is a little over a year old...out of warranty. I hooked the center channel output up to another input on the back of the svs sub and the sub worked....phew.

My question is....how difficult is it to repair a sub output? I mean, is it worth having fixed or should I just be buying another receiver? I dont want to spend several hundred dollars having something fixed when I can just buy something new.

Anyone know of a place in Atlanta that may fix these things?

Hi Shane

Don't buy a new receiver, there must be a repair facility in the Atlanta area. Probably won't cost quite that much...

Happy New Year

Personally I wouldn't waste my time trying to get the thing fixed. Best case scenario it's a ten minute job for which a repair shop would charge you at least $100 in labor. It's just as likely that they will charge you $300+ in parts and labor so it's time for a new receiver.
I had a similar scenario a few years back when all of the coaxial audio in jacks on my Harman Kardon receiver stopped working. I spent a few hundred bucks on a new receiver for theater and demoted the HK to my bedroom where it's still running.

Hi Shane;
I had the same problem on a Denon a couple of years ago. Fortunately mine was under warranty, but even so, I was able to bring it to the following repair location:

NORMAN'S ELECTRONICS
3653 CLAIRMONT ROAD
ATLANTA, GA 30341 USA
(770) 451-5057

This is about 2 miles off Peachtree Industrial near Brookhaven. Yamaha lists these guys as one of their service centers, also lists Hi Fi Buys Service, however they're quite a ways away from my location (30346).

Here's a link to Yamaha's authorized service center locations, you can do a search yourself and see if repairing this may be worthwhile or not... -TD

Thanks Tom.

Funny thing is....I had just found Norman's electronics right before you posted this. Unfortuantely, my receiver is a little over a year old....making it.....out of warranty


Oh well.

That is a bummer. It might at least be worth finding out how expensive it would be to fix. A new 2500 would be at the cheapest $450... -TD
