Hi All - would welcome your thoughts and comments on replacing my Yamaha RX-V2600. After 6 years of great service the unit will now not turn on. Just the familiar "clunk" when you power on, but not output on the front LED panel, or any of the av outputs. Currently investigating fault / cost of repair, bit suspect it may not be economically viable.
One of the reasons I bought this receiver was not only it's great home cinema performance, but also the quality of music output (via CD and mp3 attached media player) Hopefully, a replacement would continue this balance.
The receiver has been paired with 6x B&W M1's and 1x B&W PV1, located in a 5m square room. No plans to replace these.
I'm thinking of budget between £500 - £1000, but happy to pay less! I suspect price / quality has improved over the years since I originally purchased, and I don't need audiophile quality.
All comments / thoughts gratefully received.
