My stereo receiver is without a doubt the most important "appliance" in my home. If the fridge breaks, I'll stop buying milk. If the stove breaks, I'll order a pizza. If my dishwasher breaks..... Well, if my dishwasher breaks it means my hands are broken and then we have a whole new set of awful problems.
Putting the needle on the record and having no sound come out of the speakers is completely unacceptable. While I'm not particularly happy that my Denon receiver conked out less than 4 years after the purchase, the Denon certified repair people at Argo took care of my stereo quickly, and explained everything that needed to be done to fix it up and bring music back to my life, which is of utmost importance.
I'm probably gonna eat pizza for dinner anyway, who am I kidding?
