As I just mentioned above, was able to get the new AVP up and running yesterday. All I can say is I'm glad I waited. Coming from a legacy, all analog Parasound C-2 processor, this new 8802a is like a...

Good guess. It's a Rythmic FV15HP and it measures pretty flat down to 16 hz in my room full of compromises.
