Sony str-de895 distortion in right front channel

Hello, all!

 

I am having trouble with distortion of the right front channel of my
receiver. Its not really that bad at lower volumes but when I am
watching a movie
and turn up the volume, it gets really bad--almost to the point of
replacement. Although its relatively old, I really like this unit, and
dont have the $$$ to replace it with a more up-to-date unit. Any
suggestions???

THe fact that the distortion

THe fact that the distortion is effected by the volume control indicates that is stems from early in the system. This is usually a bad dif-amp section and is not very costly to repair. Figure on $5-$10 for parts plus your local labor rate. I will look up your specific model and try to give you more details.
