    Hello friends,
    I'm selling this Philips FR975 DTS/DD receiver for $165 + shipping with a free monster (1M) Coax interlink digital cable, or $150 + shipping without the monster cable.
    I need a receiver with 3 optical inputs. I tried a fiber optic combiner to make 2 inputs out of one and it didnt work very well (sound would cut in and out sometimes). So I'm going to find a new receiver with 3 optical inputs.
    I believe this is a good entry level receiver, in fact I would be keeping it if I could only have 3 optical inputs instead of 2. It is superb on DVDs...I really hope when I find a new receiver it will play DVD's sounds that well. Receiver comes with remote (and batteries), AM loop antenna and FM wire antenna.

    Dolby Digital (AC-3), DTS, and Dolby Pro Logic surround decoding
    100 watts per channel x 5
