Sounds like pins you're describing. If they only go in a little I'd be worried that one would come loose and short against another connector. I'd either just cut off the connector and place the bare...

I currently own a Paradigm Ultracube 12 sub. My wife and I are having an entertainment credenza built which will house the electronics and subwoofer(s). :eek: and raise the WAF considerably. Please...

Glad you didn't take offense. I was hoping the smiley face would tell you I'm kidding. My current entertainment center (new one on the way) does not have a removable back, so when I want to change...

I hope you realize that I was just kidding. Even without as complicated a system that would be too much to ask. As it is I decided to keep the system the way it is. Feature wise there isn't much...

I own the RX-A2030 receiver, along with a Sunfire 7 channel amp. Currently I'm using nine channels (5.1 HT, and 2 stereo zones) so upgrading to the CX-A5000 would also require the addition of two...

Thanks. I called UPS & it would be a little over $100 to pack & ship this amp. Shipping alone is $70. Seems a bit excessive for an amp in this price range. I haven't received a quote, but I'd be...

Gave serious thought to both brands. Although I am running a 5.1 system I can use the extra channels for other zones. I also like the low weight and how cool it runs. Found the TGA7401 refurbished...

Thank you very much for your answer. I appreciate your insight into the possible failures. Unfortunately the amp is not under warranty anymore. I do like your idea for getting monoblocks!

Replace amp, keep using or somewhere in between

My home theater is 5.1 channels. I purchased a used Sherbourn 5/1500A amp this summer. It's a 5 channel amp with 200 watts/channel. Each channel is its own monoblock, with its own transformer (400...

Yamaha does not specify it. Considering the power requirement of 490 watts you need to figure it's under 490 watts total. If driving 7 channels that would give you less than 70 w/channel.
