    FS:Denon AVR-X6200w

    Hi there, your pic of the back of the unit shows the AVR-X4200W but your ad is for an AVR-X6200W??

    Did I just kill my SCHIIT FREYA?!

    What on earth are you talking about? No-one here has tried to force guilt onto anyone, everyone is trying to help. Well everyone except that person ^^^^^^

    Bob Dylan

    Went and saw him in 1992 in Hobart, got stoned off my face to get me in the zone and promptly fell asleep and missed most of the concert . Apparently wasn't much chop anyway but was still annoyed with myself

    Did I just kill my SCHIIT FREYA?!

    Yep sorry, no logic really. To me though, unless it is tested and proved it doesn't work then just maybe it will work! Hence my suggestion to try a new tube. Can anyone suggest a way of testing the tube holder connections with a multimeter?(to save risking a new tube) The readings he should be getting? If the tube holder on the other side is working ok maybe compare outputs with the smokey one? I guess I am a "if it aint broke, don't fix it" person! And no-one knows yet that it is actually broke. Plus I generally try to fix whatever I can myself before calling in the experts. Could the smoke have been from pcb lacquer etc? @Zaphod Beeblebrox would be the man who would know. I know I have seen pcb's smoke before but not necessarily burn out. Not sure videoing it all that time was a good idea but it was still smoking and didnt go "pop" In saying all that, the most prudent advice (as suggested by yourself and others) would be to have it checked by a competent technician as even though it may still work, chances are there is now a weak link somewhere in the chain.

    I doubt both tube holders are smoking, most likely just smoke from the incorrectly inserted one drifting across to the other. Pull the locating lug out, stick a new tube in and see if it works? Who knows, you might get lucky

    Paper machè horns.

    also... a bit of a flashback when I left. The bottom floor unit at the end of your street I spent a number of nights at with a crazy cat girl many years ago that I had totally forgotten about. Must have repressed that memory for a reason I'm thinking...

    . Was great to finally put a face to the name. Indeed! I was kind of actually expecting the dude in the yellow top and tin foil hat though! lol!

    Thanks Linc, really enjoyed today and the finish of the horns is spot on! Pics don't do them justice. Everything else is mumbo jumbo but sounds darn good ?

    'New Content' not working

    Thought I would try it for the hell of it, mines says "Unread content", took a looong time to load. Not a feature I use anyway, just being a guinea pig ?
