My old receiver (some late '80s silver Pioneer or JVC box) has become afflicted with loose connection gremlins. Last time I asked about getting it dealt with, the folks at Solutions Audio said it'd probably run about $200 to repair it. I'd like to see what my options are and whether I can get something as good or better for about the same price (or a little more). [more inside]

I inherited a NAD 214 stereo power amplifier. I plugged it into power and the lights came on. In order to get it out of the house (spring cleaning) I listed it on ebay for $5 and said it powers up fine. But now it's getting lots of attention and I have people asking me if it works properly.

Based on their good reviews and cheap price, I bought a pair of JBL Control 1 Pros for my DJ setup at home without realizing they were passive speakers. Any recommendations for a cheap amplifier? I just need some basic reference monitors for my turntables/mixer so I'm a little out of my depth when it comes to wading though reviews on audiophile websites.
My amplifier/receiver died. I need something inexpensive (~$200) but powerful to replace it. I am not an audiophile but like my music to sound good. Should I get a simple amplifier and an HD radio tuner or troll eBay for a used receiver? I have two sets of speakers plus woofer and need about 100W per channel. Need three or four inputs. Don't need fancy 5.1 or anything. Recommendations? [more inside]

Can anyone recommend a tube (valve) amplifier kit in the ~ $500 (US) range? I was going to buy one of the Passion Audio Kit i11 amps but the company that offered them, Rotac in Quebec, quit selling them April 1st.
