    Only a couple of weeks old and I will include the receipt for warranty purposes. The "A" behind the 707 means that this the upgraded version which now has Component Cable Switching ability. Retails for $399 my asking price is $165. This Receiver is identical to the Kenwood VR-7070 except it does not have the THX Certification. The 7070 retails for $600!!!!! It is Silver in Color also, very Sleek.

    Riveting 6.1-channel home theater excitement is yours with the VR-707. This receiver delivers dynamic multichannel movie and music thrills via 100 watts x 6 channels of clean Kenwood power. An advanced 24-bit processor supplies precise Dolby® Digital EX, DTS, and Dolby Pro Logic® II decoding.
    None of your home theater speakers need to be left out when you're playing music or older video sources, thanks to Kenwood's Circle Surround modes. These let you transform any stereo or surround source into convincing 6.1 audio. You also get five audio DSP modes to enhance any music source with the ambience of your choice. Kenwood's Midnight Theater modes let you enjoy the full dynamic range of Dolby Digital sources at reduced volume levels, so you don't disturb sleeping housemates.

    The VR-707 offers an impressive array of inputs to build a great A/V system, including 3 digital inputs, S-video switching for 2 sources, and a 5.1-channel analog input for a DVD-Audio or SACD player. The multibrand remote is pre-programmed to operate the basic functions of most brands of A/V gear, for easy control of your whole system. Silver finish.

If you are connecting a DVD player using the stereo analog inputs, you should use the Front Left and Right RCA jacks of this input.

    The 707 is NOT exactly the same as the 7070 minus the THX certification. It is much lighter, has less features, and is 2 steps down the line.

    Sorry Stephen didn't mean to hit to insult you but the 707A does have pretty much the same features. Is 7070 better, yes but is it worth an extra $300 compared to this receiver no. I've heard them both.

    Anyway this is a for sale post if your not interested then please don't post!!!

    Why don't I send the Receiver back simple. 15% Restocking fee and I pay shipping. Why am I selling well thats also simple. I got this for my Dad and set it up for him and he doesn't want it. I own one of these myself and it is well worth the price compared to other receivers that have the same features.
