I finally pulled the trigger and bought a video preamplifier, a Marantz AV7005.

All was well for the first seven weeks. Then it died.

The last piece of electronics gear I bought was a Denon AV receiver to use in a vacation home. That lasted about a year and a half.

It seems there was a time when you bought AV equipment, plugged it in, and could reasonably expect it to last for decades. You replaced it because of obsolescence, not failure.

What happened?
