    I am fairly new to this av lark and have a probably amusing question. Laughing out loud is permited.
    My pioneer vsx810 is a few years old now and looks as though it no longer wants to output dts audio. Pioneer have said it may need repairing as an internal bit has possibly passed away. Is it possible to have the internal parts upgraded or is that just stupid. My amp decodes dd and dts-es but not dts 96/24 or dd-ex and is 7.1 compatibale.
    Any comments of my tight purse strings are welcomed.:blush:

    Repairs - yes.
    Upgrades - no.

    You may want to get an estimate for the repairs and compare that with receivers currently available, new or second-hand. DD-Ex would be nice but I would not be bothered about DTS 96/24 as very few dvds have it.

    You could try looking and even posting in the hardware classifieds section of these boards as a starter. Shops such as Sevenoaks have ex-dem sales and (I think) provide warranties. Also try av retailers generally; prices may be within your range.
