    Get into separates with this bargain!

    For sale a Sherwood Newcastle AVP-9080R, the unit is in mint condition, and includes original box, remote (unused) & manuals. Pictures are available.

    Some of the specs:
    The AVP-9080R drop down panel elegantly hides seldom-used, but conveniently-placed controls.

    Please note that the unit comes with the popular universal remote (aka Home Theater Master SL-9000) found on many of the other high end processors.

    This is in excellent condition and the only reason I am parting with it is because I purchased a Theta Casablanca.

    I'm asking $425 or best offer. (it sells for $1200 new!!)



    Thanks for looking.

    Just to answer a bunch of the questions I've been getting. This preamp does have a 6 channel analog pass through. This is perfect for outboard D/A's or using SACD's and DVD-A's.

    This is a great preamp, and at that price, it's a bargain!

    BTW, I've heard this on several different systems at various audio stores and this is a great budget pre-amp that does 2-channel quite well.

    Thanks for the reply, Robert, I primarily buy my equipment for how well it does music. I just use the Home theater angle to get spousal approval.

    Either in stereo or Surround sound, this is one impressive preamp. It rivals others in the $1200 - $3000 range and is an excellent way to get into separates.
