Receiver Advice - repair elite SC 37 or buy new one in the $2,000 - $3,000 range
I have a Pioneer elite SC-37 Receiver running 7.1 Def Tech BP 7004 fronts, with a Def Tech Center and BP 8080 Surrounds and Surround backs with a velodyne sub. The surround back left channel all of a sudden stopped working and I'm wondering if it is worth repairing or not? Anyone know what the possible repair cost could be? I called numerous repair shops but as you might guess that want me to bring it in and I'd rather get an estimate without having to carry that heavy SOB into the store. That is part 1 - an estimate if anyone has had a similar repair?
2 - if i decide to buy a new one, what in the 2-3k range is available these days and will anything be a major step up over the sc 37? i'm primarily into movies, about 90% of use as it is in a dedicated home theater.
Thanks as always for the help and valuable advice everyone!
