Question about Denon AVR-3801 Receiver
I bought a 3801 when we moved into a new house in March 2001. I have the family room set up for 5.1 surround and the other two amps driving stereo in the study and master bedroom. Several months ago the study and bedroom stopped receiving sound. I had the system checked and after charging me an exhorbitant fee they proclaimed there was no problem with the house wiring or speakers but that they "thought" the amps had blown and expressed surprise that they had been able to do the job at all and offered to install power amps to protect the replacement receiver they expected I would have to buy.
How likely is their diagnosis to be correct and is there any hope of getting an economical repair of my current beautiful amp? Otherwise (in desperation) what is the most economical replacement I could get to provide similar sound. I use the radio, cable TV input, a DVD player, a turntable and a TV. No plans for HDTV anytime soon.
This amp allows you to pick a secondary source for those other rooms. Did you by chance accidentally change it from the "SOURCE" designation that makes room 2 listen to same thing as room 1? Just a thought.
