Wow. That's really nice for $150. I think mine is like 200 watts, and it is dying, so I might consider it too.

Yeah. Go for it and let me know how it works.

I absolutely hate how Sony advertises its receivers. That 500 watt rating means nothing in real life. Look at this rating instead.

Quote:
Watts per Channel - 100W
Total Harmonic Distortion - 1%
That THD rating is a bit high. I'd look elsewhere.
