It was repaired 2 weeks ago. I just picked up the Hafler dh-220 amp yesterday. So before that I never had a need to use the pre-outs on the Onkyo.

Thank you

Well I have not really had a chance to run it yet. I need to run Audyssey again so it can adjust the levels to the amp. So with the left channel not working it won't even run through the setup. I tested it at the sellers place and it sounded pretty good to me. It is in excellent original condition with barely a scratch on it.

Update time......

It is fixed. Took the pre-amp board out and it had a weak solder point on the "left" output. Resolder it and it is working. On e problem though I popped a tweeter on one of the Polks. I guess yesterday when I was swapping RCA cables there was a loud pop sound. That will be another fix..

But the sound is amazing. A lot more depth to it. I still need to run Audyssey again.

Thank you

Sounds good is the output board the one on the bottom that the speaker lugs go to? Ive had mine apart also before I sent it in trying the youtube fix with desoldering caps and the oven trick I am surprised they even fixed it lol.

The output board is right above the speaker terminals. Pretty easy to get to, just remove HDMI board, then take back panel off the make it easier to take out the other boards.

Oh and I fixed the issue with the speaker. Turned out I didn't have the terminals on the speaker tightened down so the jumpers did not make a connection with the top. So it is all good now.

Thank you

Hdmi-cec

I used the HDMI-CEC settings for the first time and it works really well. It communicates with the cable box, Samsung TV, DVD player, PS3 and 4. I'm not sure why that feature isn't explained better and promoted more by all component manufacturers that enable it. It was the new Samsung TV that made me understand it at all and try it.
Just one more feature that this TX-NR709 has that got by me for a while.
