Well, since Christmas is approaching it's time to sell off some equipment to pay for the upgrades. I thought I'd post these here for a few days before I post them on Ebay. I think the prices are fair based on my research, but I'd be willing to negotiate on a package deal. Here's what I've got: * Sold * Sony TA-E9000ES preamplifier/processor $500. It's in perfect condition except for the little LED in the volume knob that went out in the first month. I liked it better that way so I never bothered to get it fixed, but it should still be under warranty and there's a Sony service center right down the road, so I could get it fixed for you if it's a big enough deal for you to be worth the wait. I think the firmware is version 1.18C, but I can't remember how to check it. Purchased December 1998 - I think the balance of the 5-year warranty may be transferrable, but I can't make any guarantees on that.

I would recommend you pick up the upgrade kit with the new remote (the unit is priced with this in mind) or just use a Pronto like I always did. Parasound HCA-806 6-channel amplifier $500. 80 watts per channel RMS into 8 ohms (can be bridged to 80/80/180/180), rack mountable. Excellent condition. Purchased December 1998. Pictures: Large Small * Sold * Paradigm Mini-Monitor speakers $150 for the pair. Some minor veneer damage on the edges, most of it is on the back. They work perfectly. Purchased May 2000.

This was the top end monitor series center channel at the time I bought it (I think the CC-370 is the current model). Purchased May 2000. Pictures: Large Small * Sold * Paradigm Monitor 9 speakers $400 for the pair. Good condition - the veneer on one of the corners has separated very slightly, and the grill cloth has developed a bit of "sweater fuzz". Functionally the speakers are mint. Purchased May 2000.
