    A/V Receivers and Amplifiers
    I'm sitting here with an old Kenwood VR-507. I have it hooked up to a sub-woofer & a number of front centre surround speakers. It has worked OK for some time (years!) - with the exception of just plain cutting out in heavy loud sound sections of movies. Its time to move on. Looking at a...

  6. Yamaha HTR-6250 audio question

    A/V Receivers and Amplifiers
    I recently picked up a Yamaha HTR-6250 and have been rather happy with it, since it's managed to detect my TV and PVR with no problem, and delivers pretty good sound and a picture as good as if the devices were directly hooked to the TV itself. However, I have a question regarding the DTS-HD...

  9. Yamha HTR-6140 Turns itself on!

    A/V Receivers and Amplifiers
    I woke up to my stereo blasting at 4 Am wondering WTF! I could see no reason for it and duduced it was a rogue IR wave that triggered the remote control or something. Several weeks went by with no problem, then it happened again. Again I figured some kind of freak accident. The other day, it...
