Re: Throw it out, or repair it?
When the circuit protection kicks in that's time to go to the shop. Time for a new Denon! The feature set is so amazing, you'll be pleased with the selection.
I currently own an AVR 3803 & AVR 1803. The inlaws got the AVR 1603 and my guitar buddy's getting my old AVR 2400. Have always been pleased with them since 1992...
