I had a Marantz sr5200. its old and a capacitor exploded in it and the electrolyte ate the main board before I could do anything about.
I don't have a lot of money to play with at the moment.
I need it to have pre amp outs ( I use all external power amplifiers)
HDMI would be nice
I only have a 5.2 set up now so 7.1/2 or 9.1/2 isn't that important.
I have searched for hours cant find any thing I like or wont kill my bank.
I would mind a use amp so if someone has one there not using with the preamps and HDMI let me know
Call Sherbourn. Maybe they'll have a pt7020 preamp on sale for you in their Factory Renewed gear even cheaper than their current sale price. 615-790-6754 See the note posted by another AVS user in a different thread.

while I search for a new unit I decided to try and get my rs5200 working. I found all the DSP board is the cause of all its problems.
the DAC on the DSP board has failed. this seems to be a common problem. does any one have the ability to solder and unsolder surface mounted component? this thing is tiny ,and I don't think I could get it on with out cross soldering the pins.
