Trovin started as a service centre and earned their reputation there. They do have competent people. The only issue will be to get parts for the unit. If it is not available in the market or with them, they may need to import from Singapore and that may take time.

Another excellent service person is Mr. Sayeed. He operates from the Philips Showroom next to Aavin parlour on Mount Road. This is in the Spencer plaza crossing. He can repair literally anything on earth.

Cheers

Thanks...Actually, I am travelling back to Dubai...but the problem is baggage allowance, which is 20kg, and the receiver weighs around 13 kg...I also contacted service center in Dubai, they are ready to do servicing on chargeable basis as my warranty expired...If I am able to bring the unit via courier to dubai, if the rates are not too high, otherwise I will have to stick to ur suggestions...

Still, i would like to get ur suggestions...i am using Boston Ms8000s HT speaker packages...the spk ratings are 100W @ 8ohms, and freq range is from 120Hz...and the sub included in the package is 50W with freq range 45Hz to 150Hz...I started hearing cracking/distortion noise from the speakers...do u think it is because of these speaker ratings, which i feel insufficient for my receiver...Pls give ur suggestion..

Are you playing the amp at very high volumes? If so, the amp could be clipping and that will create distortion.

If not, the reason could be anything - power issues, bad cables, or a possible issue with the amp itself. I don't think you need to carry this to Dubai. Either Torvin or Sayeed can resolve this issue.

Speaker ratings will not be a factor.

Ok..I normally play @ -30 to -24dB volume....If I play DTS source no prob at all, but the problem arises if the sources are Dolby digital 5.1, 2.0, mp3...If I select DTS Neo for 2 Channel sources, no sound at all, if select DPLII, again movie sound with distortions...I think there is a prob with reciever, anyhow will chk with either Torvin or Sayeed after i comeback
