Found out my next door neighbour is an electrician who specialises in AV systems, I allas thought he was a builder, anyway he helped me out a few weeks back with my new LG Blurry and swapped a dodgey optical cable for me.
Unfortunately the swap meant the audio and picture were out of sync, so I gave him a call on Friday to see if he could help. He popped over and swapped the input which rectified the prob, while he was here I told him about the hum on a t/t a mate had given me.
He had a look at it but couldn’t trace where it was coming from, he also said he had a hum on one of his systems so I offered him an old Kenwood amp the mate with the t/t returned to me. He took it away and tried it, returning about 20mins later to tell me it was a bit knackered.
But thanks anyway and would I like some gear he was chucking out. Wait for it… a Marantz AV Receiver – http://us.marantz.com/DocumentMaster/US/SR4600specsheet0506.pdf and a Marantz Super Audio CD/DVD – http://us.marantz.com/DocumentMaster/US/DV7600specsheet02-06.pdf
Boy am I full of WIN!
I’ve got the CD/DVD up and running but I’m gonna need help moving my gear around and rewiring the speakers for the new amp. Still what an amazing thing to happen!
Never been a Marantz boy, tended to be Technics and Sony (for no good reason) so I’d appreciate any feedback on my ‘free’gear.
