    I got my hands on one of these the other day. It is mine now. [​IMG]
    I have a receiver that does DD 5.1 and DTS, and this one is Pro Logic...
    but...
    by its inputs it looks pretty useful and of high quality.
    Main thing is - anyone have the specs on it & an opinion to share?
    Thanks,
    Chris

    Chris,

    I have one in my basement family room system. Bought it brand new in 1993 for $750. It is a fine quality receiver that has served me well. It does have preamp inputs/outputs for the main channels but not the rest of the channels; so it is not 5.1 compatible. Power output is 80 x 3 into 8 ohms and 28 x 2 for the surround channels. This is a solid receiver with the weight to back up the power ratings unlike alot of the 80/wpc receivers of today!

    Like I said, I have been happy with it but would like to get 5.1 downstairs too so I will be selling it soon. It has become a fixture in my setup and it will be sad to see it go!

    Aaron

    I have had mine since new too and it is an awesome reciever, I can't bring my self to part with it given the amount of money I would probably get. It will probably end up with my kids when they are old enough to work it.
