Hey all. Looks like it's time for a new receiver, my trusty old Onkyo 707 bit the dust. Won't come out of standby mode. Did as the manual says and it just won't turn on anymore.

My question is; I need a receiver that has preouts for my mains (M80s) I haven't looked into this stuff in 10 years so to say I'm feeling like a novice at this point is an understatement.

Any recommendations

Tried a hard reset and all I got was a pop and some sparks. Time for a new one.

Just buy it for less than 600 of your dollars and enjoy!

I can't recommend Onk in that price range due to HDMI board issues which still persist 8 years after initial reports!

Thank you Mojo, that was the one I was looking at.

Use the Onkyo 707 for target practice.

That CZ won't produce the same level of destruction as my Springfield Armory XD-M 4.5" full size .45ACP.

Shower it with a mixture of 3/4 oil to 1/4 gas before killing it good. Dead receivers are always more fun on fire.

Guess I could always go with an AR and M855 steel core.

Rick - Accessories 4 less has the Denon refurb for $500. I have a 7200 refurb, and it looked brand new.

This link takes you to their Denon page - they also have some killer Marantz deals.
