Question about Yamaha HTR-5280 Receiver
The center channel on my reciever has been failing intermittently when using the Dolby Digital or DTS surround modes while viewing movies.. Usually, the effect is a 80% reduction in volume from the sound coming out of the center channel. I can usually resolve the issue temporarily by manually icreasing the volume via the big volume control located in the front of the reciever... As I'm turning it up, the sound will "pop" back on.... but I don't want to be doing this 6 or 7 times during a movie.....The other channels do not seem to be affected. The reciever is approx 6-7 years old, and I have enjoyed its use up until now... I like the clean sound it puts out, both for music and movies.. In addition to any ideas regarding what the issues may be with the reciever, I would like comments regarding whether or not the repair will be worth the $$$, given I can get a new reciever for roughly $500.... Any comments/suggestions would be appreciated.
Some of the theater selections sometimes effect this i think. check different fields also.
