Samsung is not covering it. I have an extended warranty and they told me it needs a main & power board. The main board is on a nationwide backorder and it will be 4 weeks to get the part. I would avoid Samsung tv's.
That didn't make any difference covering the IR. I called Samsung and they are looking into and said they will get back to me in a few days. I did a search and it sounds like it could be a bulb issue. There is no way I wore it out.
The Onkyo is tempting, but I have a 2 yr old one that I just didn't like the sound and found it confusing to use. I have read that a lot of people have had heat issues with them, but maybe the 706 has been improved. Does anyone know if the 706 or the Pioneer have on screen volume display?
I am currently using a 5.1 M&K speaker/sub combo. I am using a 10 yr old Denon and need something new. I have owned Yamaha and Onkyo, but I feel the Denon sounds better. From reading a lot of posts it sounds like a Pioneer VSX-1018AH-K might be my best choice at this price point. Any other brand/model I should consider?
I have the S-125's and use omnimount model 53 RST. I bought them several years ago, so I don't know if they are still available. I am sure you can find them or contact Omnimount and they can tell you if they still make it or if it was replaced by a new model.
