Stupid remote or stupid user
If you are under 10 years old it's the remote, otherwise look in the mirror.  
Easy Come Easy Go…….BOOM!

"B&W" ?
Nothing sinister. It's just a software glitch.

@dekay  Joe's performance at Woodstock was epic. I honestly expected his vocal chords to snap and his head to explode at some point during the song.

One receiver for both ht and 2 channel (diff speakers)
Been there before and unless you are okay with the quality of sound, even a high quality AVR offers, then you might consider going the home theatre bypass route. That way you can use the front left and right speakers for both HT and two channel. ...

ATC SCM40
I have the ATC SCM19's powered by a Musical Fidelity M6si rated at 220 wpc @ 8 ohms. They sound great.  
Robert Plant

Do all remastered vocals in vinyl albums have been 'corrected" with auto tune?
I would compare an original release to the "remastered" version and that should help to answer that question. I will say that, back in the day, vocalists couldn't necessarily rely on electronics to enhance/fix their vocals, whether that was durin...
