Sadly, I must agree with you. Every time I fixed my VSX-51 using the heat-gun, the problem went away, but then resurfaced again about 7-10 days later. I fixed the receiver a total of 3 times. After the final failure, I finally caved and bought a new one (SC-81). I suspect the underlying problem may lie within the silicon rather than the PCB assembly; but, I don't exactly have spare time to debug Pioneers technical problem. If the SC-81 fails in the next 3 years, that will be my last Pioneer Elite receiver ever.
