My Onkyo AVR is busted. Seems a processor or something. HDMI arc, inputs, power and volume control mostly non-functional (yes, I tried a hard reset to no avail). Under warranty, so that's great. Also great is that the repair shop is local.
A buddy at work loaned me a much older Onkyo 5.1 avr which has no phono input. I thought I'd be shipping my amp and that it'd be multiple weeks to get it back so I bought a real cheap turntable preamp on Amazon. Now, I bet the turn around will be faster. Anyways, it's a Pyle brand. Sounds way better than I was expecting. I paid about $17 I think. Mids and highs are sharp, bass is a little muddy. But it'll get me by for hopefully not too long.
