Replacing the 972. Will be in the case style of the 1065 with similar amps as are in the 972 and about the size of the 972. It will have the latest software and one nice feature that the 1065 does not have, assignable amps. So that it you require more power, the 5 very nicely powered amps can be assigned - i.e. - for center and all rears included 2 for 7.1 and then you can put another amp on the front channels.
