I've actually read through all of these and it seems that there are less problems with the more recently purchased units. It also seems that many of the issues are with referb units.
I just ordered mine from newegg.com ($479), but it's a TX-SR706B
. Does anyone know the difference, if any? I'm hoping it's a newer version that has all these issues resolved.
I'm still a little concerned about the heat issue
. I will have basically no clearance on top of the 706 unless I raise the shelf above it. I can't raise the shelf above it due to the height of my center channel speaker, (7"). I may need to get a new shorter
center channel speaker, so I can raise the shelf. Any suggestions?
All components sit on a "2 shelf" stand underneath my 65" Mitsu. My fronts are Definitive Technology BP 10s and am running a 15" Velodyne sub. Rears are pretty typical.
I'm expecting delivery of my 706B in a couple days. Will post back whatever happens good or bad.
