    I've got a black B&K Ref 20 for sale.

    The manual is here:

    This unit has the $900 upgrade, which adds the following:

    -Ref 30 processor
    -5.1 inputs
    -Dolby EX and DTS EX
    -7.1 Pre-Outs
    -Enhanced room correction software
    -RS 232 port enabled
    -same software as Ref 30

    (Same as Ref 30, but no component switching, or THX Cert, but same "THX approved" software")

    Here's a review for the Ref 30. The Ref 20 looks the same, except the front is black and not silver:

    What amp did you use with this?
    How does B&K sound compared to Onkyo, Pio, Totel, Outlaw, etc? Anyone?

    I used some self powered speakers by Blue Sky, so I can't make amp recommendations.

    I did quite a bit of shopping when I invested in this piece of equipment, and I was preferred the B&K compared to any other controller.
