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.
