Should i repair or move on ?
I have a 18-20 year old CT-100, recently stopped working, pretty sure i found the problem.
My question is whether its worth fixing or should i just move on ?
I know its difficult to tell the extent of what could be going on but any suggestions or thoughts would be much appreciated.
I have a 5.1 setup powered by a 18-20 year old Sony STB-DB930, usage is 70% movies & TV, 25% music.
I just recently upgraged my viewing panel to a 65" E7P LG Oled & figured i would watch a few movies. but when i plugged in the sub which hadn't been used for a while no sound came out...i tried a seperate rca, Ran rca"s direct from a cd player to the sub but still no sound.
The power light comes on and the stanby light does change from red to green if i send a signal but it seems pooched beyond the led indicator.
I took the sub apart & found what looks like a couple overheated capacitors which spewed out some material..
I'm pretty handy with a soldering iron from my PS2 modchip installation days.
There is no electronics repair anywhere around here. but i could order some parts & replace whats needed.
I loved this sub and am pretty dissapointed at the moment but it was good to me, i really never pushed it, my receiver volume always stayed below 50% although its pretty darn good at 40% ( i love that receiver too )
I have no idea whats out there for a replacement if i go that route, i'm scared the quality wont be there for my $500-$600 budget..
Thanks for any advice
