My 2003 Kenwood VR-6070 receiver appears to be dying. Several inputs have gone dead recently. I've used it a LOT and switching between TV input, satellite radio and PC out of auxilliary input. So I'm sure that's part of why it's dying, plus we get a ton of power hits where we live. And although it's been on a UPS for a long time, it's begun clicking and popping a lot of the time, so I'm sure that is taking a toll on it as wel..
The thing is my husband and I still have a lot of vinyl (yes we are that old) and need a receiver with a phono input. Looking for something realitively inexpensive (Under $700 I'd say). I've been searching the Internet and found the Onkyo TXNR709 has a phono input and sounds like a decent price. We really don't need 7.1 as we only have 5 speakers. Got referred to this forum here when looking for reviews of the 709. But just wondering if anyone here could point me towards any other receivers that still come with a phono input to compare to it?
Thanks in advance!
