I recently bought a refurbished Marantz SR6009 from A4L, my first purchase from them. I thought it looked new, but have since detected a very slight scuffing on the logo. It works, and it works well....

After replacing a 16-year old Yamaha receiver with a refurbished 6009, I had to learn the hard way. I must turn on the receiver BEFORE the Blu-Ray player, otherwise nothing! After pushing the...

The Anthem is a bit above my budget and to be honest, I've never even SEEN one. But I'm going to be doing some reading for sure. Thanks for the hint!

Yamaha HTR-5280: fix or replace

Try to make this short. I've had the 5280 since new and although I have a Pioneer KURO, obviously with HDMI, I've loved the sound of this receiver. It has 6 channel input jacks, so I got an Oppo 103D...

It was almost all a backstory last night, with only a brief appearance by Mr. Chandler. I am awestruck by Eva Green's performances. Someone give her a substantial role in a good film. She can do it!

My avatar is taken along Going-to-the-Sun Road in Glacier National Park. We live just outside the Park. I "took" the photo from the internet somewhere. Forgot where, but I'll look.:)
