    Has anyone noticed this?

    I am not a surround guy. Just pure stereo. I wouldn't exactly call myself a purist but I am a minimalist. At least as much as you can be these days and still integrate a modern tv and gaming heads for my son.. Because of that I have always been on the search for a stereo pre-amp that has modern inputs and conveniences like Bluetooth and wifi without carrying all the bells and whistles of a big AV processing unit. In my search the other day I came across this. Its not a pre-amp but its still kinda cool. Decent price too @ $430 on Amazon. Wounder how long this unit will be around.

    A couple of Apollos, a 55" smart tv and internet and you are all set.

    I hadn't noticed it before. Looks good, I gave up looking for something like that and bought HT receivers, didn't like wasting the extra channels, and built more speakers. Nice simple control layout too.
