I currently have an H/K Avr 254 with an Adcom GFA 7605. Now the amp is in 9/10 condition its probably been used for a total of six months since it was purchased, I am the second owner. There's one problem One of the five channels stopped working on me ...Now it will only work when I stand there and push down on the rca cable . Regardless the shop that's near me, that Adcom recommended said I'm looking at maybe $200 to fix it. I was thinking.... I bought it for $400 now I put $200 into it ...is it worth it ? Especially because I want to upgrade the H/K to something with HDMI 1.4a
So instead of fixing the amp and then upgrading the Avr ....I was thinking of just spending between $800 and a $1000 and getting a kick ass Avr . I'm leaning toward the Pioneer Elite Sc 35/37 . Then I could sell off the Adcom as is and sell the H/K ...To balance it off a little...
Does this make sense?? Or should I fix the Adcom for a couple hundred maybe upgrade the capacitors and wiring and some new binding posts ...Say drop $400 total on the amp .Then buy a refurbished H/K Avr 3600 for $400 Whichchoice will yield the best results? Either way I'm looking to spend between $800 and $1100 bucks maybe a little more maybe a little less.
Let's keep in mind I"m looking to upgrade to the Rti series of speakers down the line ...And also am upgrading my tv to a 55" smart led within the next year ..
Thanks guys any advice will help !!
