Greetings All.

Am looking at various configuration options of these very flexible amps where info seems to be quite shrouded at the moment. (AC-3, multi-channel, phono.)

Any information, tips or links would be appreciated kindly here, - am scoping options & wondering how this combo (possibly together with more Power Amps) would fare in a dedicated stereo vs AV setup.

EDIT:

Am particularly interested in hearing information about and availability of the DAVE (Digital Audio Video Entertainment) and MARC (multi-room) modules.

I would be most surprised if any of the modules are still available given the age of the product.

Having trouble finding DAVE (or MARC either) though?  :thinking:
