Outstanding SHERBOURN TECHNOLOGIES, INC. pre/pro in EXEMPLARY condition ~ ORIGINALLY RETAILED FOR $3199!


I AM THROWING IN AN AEROS MX-850 UNIVERSAL REMOTE CONTROL ($200 VALUE).


DESCRIPTION
Surround-sound preamp/processor. Decodes surround sound, controls volume, routes audio and video from source devices (DVD, satellite TV, etc.) to TV, amplifiers, and speakers. Includes AM/FM tuner


SURROUND MODES
Dolby Digital EX and Dolby Pro Logic IIx, DTS ES and Neo:6, Party Mode


CONNECTIONS
Three component video inputs, six composite and S-video inputs, two component video outputs, three composite and S-video outputs (HDMI upgradeable, but is equally as stunning via composite), nine RCA unbalanced stereo audio inputs (one phono), eight-channel audio input for DVD-Audio/SACD player, five RCA unbalanced stereo analog audio outputs, six coaxial digital audio inputs, four optical digital audio inputs, coaxial and optical digital audio outputs, line-level unbalanced RCA and balanced XLR outputs for all channels, additional unbalanced RCA stereo output for left and right side axis speakers, fixed- and variable-level unbalanced zone 2 audio outputs, DB-9 connector for RS-232 control, IEEE-1394 input for software updating, 3.5mm IR control inputs for main zone and zone 2, block connector for zone 1 and zone 2 12-volt trigger outputs, 3.5mm minijack for 12-volt DC output (main zone). 





I have been trying to sell this Pre/Pro for weeks, to little effect. I purchased it in a bulk auction due to the fact that it was originally $3199 and that it came with a $200 universal remote that is not generally included with it. 


I attempted to sell it at $1500, to little effect. I see others on eBay going for $999, but they do not appear to be selling. I have it at Buy It Now for $949. 



I am accepting all offers, so please feel free to email me at paul@bradleymediaconsulting.com. Thanks.

Technology has moved on... when that was new 6 years ago, it may have been worth the money.
Everything these days is high-def, blu-ray, & HDMI interfaces, so, just like VHS, that box is obsolete!
If these are "going for $999" on ebay, & failing to sell, that should give you some indication that the sellers are asking way over the odds!
Stick it on with a 99c start price, & you will find out what it is actually worth.

Yeah, i am staring to realize that you are right. However, it is HDMI upgradable with like a $70 piece, though everything I have read says that the unit is potent enough that component works just as well, or close to it.

I did not join the forum to do anything ugly or to shyster my stuff. I joined to get informed comments like yours. I don't really know a ton about this stuff.

It looks like I have been scammed on the value of the stuff and I wanted some audiophile input.

I actually saw one sell for $995 today, which was encouraging, but I am ready to cut bait.

Anyway, I apologize for seeming disingenuous.
