    I wouldn't say Sony's surround receivers are very suited for beginners..
    In my experience they can get strange faults in their audio processors that are hard to find and understand even for experienced people. I don't like'em..
    You'd need at least a service manual and an oscilloscope, maybe a signal generator.
    Google for "str-db940" and "str-db870". Maybe you're lucky and find a service manual or some tips.
