At one time, this was the AV preamp that drew all the “oohhs” and “aahhs” at the various trade shows and showrooms. The 7″ color display in the center was definitely one of the key features that got everyone’s attention. It may not have HDMI but it has pretty much everything else you would need to run a top notch home theater system. Setup was relatively intuitive and just needs a bit of common sense to navigate around it. But once you have that worked out, it is plain sailing from there and you just need to sit back, relax and start enjoying your movies and music.
Cosmetically, the unit looks good. Some scuff marks here and there that are common with use. A small hairline scratch on the right of the faceplate. A Rotel remote is included (a bit scruffy looking and is missing the cover that conceals the front of the remote but otherwise works fine for most functions) and unit will be securely packed for safe shipping. Manual is available online.
