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!

Keep in mind you don't necessarily need an AVR with a phono input ... with a phono preamp like this one you can connect to any AVR's analog inputs.

Think you have a defective AVR? Owner's manual - Factory reset 4-5 times in a row.

Just so you know, if you find a receiver you like without a phono input, you can buy a phono pre amp for fairly cheap.

See "The Needle Doctor" website for some phono pre amps (example - http://www.needledoctor.com/Needle-D...category=35249)
