  1. Update for anyone who cares: I solved this issue recently with a relatively cheap master/slave energy saving powerboard.
  2. Hi all. I was recently given a JVC JR-S201. I want to use it purely for its amplification. It's in pretty poor shape. The speaker terminals have sustained some damage & are a little bent inwards & one of the terminals struggles to securely clamp onto the speaker wire. There is no tuning wheel & the rear bar antenna assembly is hanging on by a thread. However, as I never listen to FM, I can live without those. The very first time I powered it up I had 20-30 seconds of fairly loud static/hum/hiss but this hasn't happened since. I do get static whenever I a
  3. Is it? Well, I guess I am a peculiar type of guy. I know most people would probably pre-out to a dedicated stereo amp for this kind of thing, but I had a spare AVR & decided to play around.

The Yamaha is taking care of the C, S, B, Sub & Atmos speakers & an old Onkyo TX-SR608 AVR is powering the FL & FR speakers (connected via Yamaha pre-outs). The problem I'm having is when I tell the TV to switch to the external AVR speakers, only the eARC connected Yamaha powers on (as you would expect). To get audio from FL & FR speakers I have to manually turn on the Onkyo (first world problems, I know). I man

  6. Hi Stereonet. About me: Mid-40s HT enthusiast who lives on VIC/NSW border. Far from an audiophile, but appreciates quality 2 channel & loves good multichannel (movie buff for as long as I can remember). Lives rural, so can listen at reference volumes (when I have the house to myself). Started out with rubbish gear & have slowly worked my way up to the following: Paradigm series 7 - Monitor 11's, Surround 3's (x4), Center 3 & Ultracube 12 (+ a couple of repurposed old Sony speakers used as Atmos up-firing) Yamaha RX-V2085 Old Pana 50" pla
