Hi Ramsey

I hope you are well. And I am glad to see you guys got the Golden Gate in. What an absolute DREAM. :drool: One day. :)

I saw this and I thought that if you still have this is in two months' time, I will probably take it from you. I want to incorporate HT into my system, but I want to do it via an off-board pre, so that I can keep my 2-channel pure. I have a Rotel AV pre, but it does not have HDMI. I will probably sell it and use that money to help pay for the new pre.

Anyway, I hope all is well and that you are having fun with your new toys. :)
