    This is the info that I've gathered so far on the new Sony preamp:
    release date: summer 2002
    MSRP: USD 3000
    5 coaxial inputs, 5 optical inputs, firewire.
    There will also be a TA-N10 amp, 7 x 120 w, MSRP USD 2000.
    I guess that the street price for the preamp will be $2400 or less.

    Do you also know if the unit will have DPL-2, DTS 96/24, etc ? Will it be THX Ultra 2 certified?

    I really don't know but my guess is that it will have both DPL-2 and DTS 96/24. THX Ultra 2 certified probably not.

    I can tell you right now about the THX cert. Sony has a strict internal policy regarding this and will not pay extra just to have it certified. As for the pre. it sounds exciting and look forward to the rest of the details when it becomes available.

    Maybe they will have learned from the disaster concerning the TA-E9000ES remote...
