12-09-2005, 02:51 PM
Mint condition pre/pro with box, remotes and manuals. Better sounding than the Rotels and NAD. Very natural with huge soundstage and excellent decoding. Has latest firmware installed and ready to go. Well reviewed and respected all over the net. $1350. The Sherwood remote is a MX-500 and nice! Same DACS as the Meridian G68 and Lexicon MC12 and the DSP of the Integra and Rotel 1098.
Newer version with auto setup.

Crafted from the finest hand-selected components and designed by passionate audio engineers, its impressive decoding capabilities include virtually all of todays best technologies including: DTS-ES Discrete and Matrix; DTS 96/24, Dolby Digital EX and Pro Logic IIx; and Dolby Headphone to name only a few. With a built-in phono section, the ability to Re-Master CD sound to 192 kHz/24-bit, advanced Room-2 functionality; three wide-bandwidth component video inputs for switching Hi Def TV and two remote controls, the P-965 has the capability to satisfy today’s most ardent and advanced audiophile. And with the P-965’s “User Upgradability,” it’s probably one of the few pre-pro’s available today that will still be called “Advanced” in a decade.
