Try doing a microprocessor reset (p. 233 Owner's manual) about 4-5 times in a row and if still no joy, exchange it if still within the exchange period.

Disconnect all wires from the 1804. If it still powers off, then more likely an amp failure and will need repair.

The SR7009 can provide 125W into 2CH and likely closer to 90W/CH when driving 5 or 7 speakers. You won't likely need the Rotel unless you want to expand to 11CH or externally power Zones 2 or 3.
