    I am looking to buy a 5.1 or better Pre/Pro w/ DD DTS. Also a 5 channel power amp rated at 100 watts per channel or better.

    Thanks, Matt

    I've got a Rotel RSP-1066 in silver, mint condition, protective covering over LCD display not even taken off.

    Asking $950+shipping.

    Sorry, I am only looking to spend around $500 for each.

    Thanks, Matt

    if you're looking at $1000 for the whole setup, your best bet is probably a receiver with preamp outputs and 5 channel amp. i'm not sure you'll find a worthy pre/pro for $500. check out audiogon for used gear that is most likely your only chance.

    you can't find a decent used DD/DTS 5.1 pre/pro for $500? What about an outlaw 950? maybe you could find one of those used for $500...

    As far as a 5 ch. amp, I know Kevin_B is selling an Acurus one here for clost to your price range, or else you could find a parasound 855a (I thik thats the number) in that price range, which i think is 85WX5.

    Or...just buy a good $1k receiver. You could get like an HK AVR7200 or 8000, Denon, or a pioneer Elite series.

    good luck

    lowest Outlaw 950 goes used for around $600 shipped. Usually more. Your best bet is a good receiver w/ preouts or older pre/pro like the Marantz units. Some will have DD and DTS but no multi-channel inputs. If you don't need those (for sacd, dvd-audio), you can find a pre/pro w/ dd/dts for around 300-350. I wouldn't buy one w/out multi-channel inputs, though.

    The Sherwood Newcastle AVP-9080 Pre/Pro is your best bet. These are going for less than $500 these days, which is an absolute bargain.

    yes, I thought of the Sherwood also, then I happened to see two on Audiogon yesterday. I think one is $400 and the other is $450. They even have AC-3 input for laserdiscs. They would be a very good buy.

    Well I bought my power amp. I bought an Outlaw 750. It has 5 channels 165 watts per channel.
    ($555)Looks like it will be a great amp.

    You got an Outlaw 750 amp and 950 Pre-Pro for $1K? Nice job! I cannot imagine $1000 going much further than you took it!
