Aaron, I have visually inspected the innards of the receiver and can find no traces of burning, soot, etc. When it blew, it was on “tape“ mode. I haven’t tried any other inputs. The reason it’s on tape is because I hooked up a Bluetooth Receiver so I could listen to SiriusXM on my receiver. It worked perfectly until it blew. Like I said, the right channel works just fine.
Let me see if the guy in south jersey gets back to me. I’m still waiting for a reply from him. Thanks for your help!
