    I'm looking for a receiver that's around $500 and has a built in RF demodulator for laserdiscs. I don't know if one exists in this price range but any info would help. Thanks.

    If you are willing to consider a used receiver, the Harmon Kardon AVR-75 fits your needs. It does not, however, have the ability to decode dts.

    From what I've read in another thread, the Denon 5800 has this feature.

    My Denon 3200 has one. But again no DTS with it.
    Check around online, you can find them sometimes for around $450-500. Its a great reciever.

    I think you're going to have a hard time in that price range. Yamaha only puts that on their flagship receivers which cost over $2000, and I imagine it will be that way with most others. The Denon Tim mentioned has an MSRP of $3800 I believe. Your best bet is to look for a decent receiver with several digital inputs, and try and locate an RF demodulator. Yamaha had one that many recommended and only cost $100, I'm not sure if its still available, but perhaps you can find it used someplace.

    Hi Neil, if you have not already check the hardware for sale section, there is a Sherwood/Newcastle for sale in your price range.
