Marantz 5008 with SQUEAKING SOUND
A friend of mine was offered a Marantz 5008 that periodically makes a squeaking sound which can be remedied by tapping on it, according to the seller, who wants $100 for it which doesn't seem like a bad deal at all.
Anybody know if this this a common problem for this model line? Would it be easy to fix or have fixed? Or should he just look elsewhere? Other than the squeaking, the receiver works well and sounds good, he says.
My friend mainly wants to hook it up to his tablet for music streaming, and to a BD player for the occasional movie, so he doesn't need the extra features/formats of a current receiver.
~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)
