As far as DSP surround processing is at question, yamaha will do best but when you ask for audio performance, output clarity and performance.... Denon or HK.

Is it worth repairing a sherwood model 6030R Receiver and can you even get new parts for it???


Given that the Sherwood is a basic stereo/Dolby Pro Logic receiver, and that we have had sources where digital audio (coax and optical) are the standard for Dolby Digital and DTS for well over 15 years, and that HDMI is established now as the de facto standard for AV connections on many home AV products.... perhaps it's time to retire the Sherwood and look for something new.

Entry level price points for new, fully spec'd, AV receivers capable of dealing with HD audio, DD, DTS, Dolby ProLogiic- and ProLogic II have never been cheaper.

Sherwood is still a good brand. It has been joined by Yamaha ( RX-V377BL); Sony (STRDH750); Denon (AVR-S500BT) and Pioneer (VSX-524-K) at the entry-level price point of $249. In real terms these are probably a fraction of what you paid for the Sherwood all those years ago.
Another option is used equipment. There are some really good pre-HDMI AV receivers from Denon, Yahama and Pioneer available in the used market.

Replacing AV Receiver what to buy


Looking to buy new receiver so far only have two that appear to be good value for money and within my budget. They are Marantz NR1501 and Denon 1909. also looking at the Quintet 5-channel Klipsch speakers. This is about as far as I have got but will continue to check out the reviews a little longer before making my final decision.

The receiver works, but the LED display does not come on.


My Yahaha DSP-A1 had the same problem. Apparently its quite a common problem, caused by the heat from the LEDs causing the solder joints to fail.

I fixed mine by removing the front panel, and resoldering all the connections on the back of LCD panel - and it works fine now.

Its not particularly difficult, but is a bit fiddly and does require the use of a small soldering iron.

What's NEC PF68S33 TV's remote control code for YAMAHA HTR-6130


I had similar problem when setting up the YAMAHA remote control for my NEC LCD TV. At the end I found I did not follow the YAMAHA manual properly. Did you hold down the DTV/CBL button, and AT THE SAME TIME press the AV POWER for 3+ seconds? You should be able to "REMOTE SETUP OK" displayed in the front panel of the YAMAHA AV receiver. Hope this helps. BTW, only the TV POWER, TV MUTE and the numeric buttons work in my case.

Powers on for just 5 seconds then off


Took my Yamaha HTR 5790 to a repair shop for an estimate to repair. Cost me $50 for estimate to be applied to repair. It needed two circuit boards replaced at a cost of $390.00.

 

SOLUTION... they kept my $50 and I bought a new AV Receiver that WAS NOT a Yamaha.
