    John,

    I think your talking about the Adcom GTP860? Onecall has it listed as low stock, so I assume it's out?

    I ordered something from onecall yesterday and it was 'low stock'. For me it meant they had 1 left. After I ordered it went to 'out of stock.'. They might have one or two in stock..

    Kevin,

    Yea thats the one. I dont know if it has dd- ex and dts-es by reading what the have listed, which is:

    Available in Mid-December!
    The newest addition to ADCOM’s line of home theater preamplifiers, the GTP-860 offers superior audio and video performance over the best receivers available today. ADCOM’s own 7.1 circuitry provides enhanced sound field depth and imaging, even with stereo and 5.1 source material. Easy to set-up and use, the GTP-860 comes with a learning remote control that will operate all of your home theater components. Combine the GTP-860 with one of ADCOM’s new 5 or 7 channel amplifiers for a home theater that sounds better than the real theater. Available in black or silver, the GTP-860 continues ADCOM’s tradition of bringing high-performance separates at down-to-earth prices.




    Manufacturer's Warranty: 5 Years Parts / 5 Years Labor -Carry In Service


    GTP-860 Specifications Back To Top


    7.1 Multi-Format Surround Outputs including Dolby Digital, DTS, & Prologic II


    Six Digital Inputs; S-Video, Composite, & Component Video Switching

    Does this have DD-EX AND DTS-ES or just Adcoms version ??

    Actually, the 860 is at least a year old and is pretty out-dated I think. They have a new one coming out called the 880. According to the CEDIA report in "The Perfect Vision", it is scheduled for release in the first quarter of this year. It has some pretty cool features from what the article says and they also say it should be $2000.00. I just hope it doesn't make me regret my Anthem.

    I'd excpect some more new products from them when this one comes out. I heard from my dealer they got bought out and have re-grouped so to speak. I guess it was a tool company of all things that bought them.

    I don't think the Adcom will make you regret your Anthem at all. Adcom makes decent quality gear but when it comes to HT, IMHO they have always been behind the times. They seem to have their timing down such that as soon as they release a piece of equipment, every other manufacturer on the planet introduces a one up product within a month.

    Dan, I stand corrected. I was thinking about the 830.
    But, I do know about the 880. Check out the latest "The Perfect Vision" issue in their CEDIA report. Also here is a link with a picture and some info (Scoll down a bit).

    Does anyone own the GTP-860 that can comment on it's performance for HT, Music, and SACD/DVD-A??

    I would also like to know if it uses a "real" analog bypass for the 5.1 inputs as opposed to doubling the info under 80Hz like the Rotel and Outlaw clones?

    I'd also really like to know when the GTP-880 is coming out if anyone has that info.

    Nick
