I really enjoy two channel audio, but I don't know that much about home stereo/ movie audio. I am asking a question that has been answered many times, but I cannot find the thread I am looking for. I have a basic Sony 5.1 receiver that is showing signs of age. I have rewired the system three times, and it keeps going into protection. I have changed speakers, used it with and without the sub, and removed the center channel. It is not something that I want to rebuild. It was purchased from Radio Shack roughly 100 years ago (or at least in the 90s) with a nice compliment of RCA speakers. I use it as a 3.1 system, and I do not have any plans to do anything more. I have the speakers for a 5.1 system, and I am not that worried about it. Additionally, I don't really plan on spending that much. I do not use the tuner. Is there a receiver or integrated amplifier out there that meets my needs? I have seen plenty on Amazon and the like -- I am sure they are reasonable. I am asking here first because of the knowledge. Mentioned earlier -- I am sure there are other threads. I am searching the wrong thing. Links to other threads will not hurt my feelings.
