A co-worker bought a new reciever and is selling his old one. It is a Yamaha HTR-5280 http://www.yamaha.com …CNTID=200175&CTID=5000400 (which I think is from 2002 or so).
My current Yamaha reciever is lacking DTS (Dolby Digital only), so I think it would be a nice upgrade and has more power as well. The only problem is the remote doesn't work (didn't work since he has owned it, which he bought the unit second hand) replacement remotes online are around $75. He wanted $130 for the reciever but since the remote doesn't work he would go down to $100. Also the bass knob is missing, so I would want to order a replacement for that. Is this really a good deal, or should I just wait and find a better one when I move into a house (live in apartment right now).
thanks for your help
