Just discovered that the center channel is dead on the Onkyo TX-NR616 I've been using for several years. Checked connections, wiring and the center channel and they all seem fine. There's no sound coming from the center channel even in calibration / Audessey setup mode. I even reset the amp once with the CBL/SAT button + power button routine. The thing is that everything was fine the last time I watched a movie with it, and nothing much happened in between.
Is there anything else I should try before giving up?
If I give up, is it worth fixing, or is it a better choice to get a cheap current breed receiver (such as Onkyo 373 or Pioneer 531) to replace it instead?
I have no suggestions on fixing the unit, however, if you really dont want to replace it , and you have a spare amp, you could take the pre-out for the center channel and connect to an amp......assuming there is a signal ...just saying.
I can't think of anything else. I'd probably move on to another receiver thinking the new unit wouldn't cost much more than a repair. If you could find a shop that still does free estimates it would be worth getting the Denon looked at then weigh the cost.
In my experience, receivers do have some sound quality differences, so when picking your next receiver keep your current speakers in mind.
