I currently have a Marantz SR7200 that's a little over 10 years old. Recently the front right speaker stopped working properly. I called the folks who set up our surround sound system and they told me to switch the wires in order to see if it was an issue with the speaker or the receiver. I did this and found that the right front speaker did work but the left front speaker stopped working. So I'm assuming this means I have a problem with the receiver.
Can anyone give me an estimate as to how much they think it would cost to repair the receiver? Keeping in mind that we don't have the budget to purchase a very expensive receiver that would be of the caliber of the Marantz. do you still think it would be worth it to repair the Marantz?
Assuming that the receiver is not worth repairing can anyone recommend any affordable receivers? In all honesty I don't think we have the ears to appreciate what a super expensive receiver can offer but we'd still like to buy something good quality, but affordability is also important.
