This unit has been tested working properly on all functions.
Cosmetically, it's very close to perfect. If you look closely under the right light, you can probably find some very light signs of wear on the top, but overall it looks like good.

The Arcam DiVA series AVR300 is a high performance 7.1 channel AV receiver designed to sit between Arcam’s 5.1 channel AVR200 and the award-winning FMJ series AV8 processor and P7 power amplifier. It makes considerable use of the experience gained with the AV8 to offer the feature set and audio performance required in today’s demanding AV marketplace.
The feature set is expected to include support for just about all current audio decoding algorithms, including Dolby Digital EX, DTS24/96 and the upcoming Dolby Pro Logic IIx 2 to 7 channel decoder. The video path supports both component and European RGBS video, and includes up-conversion from composite or s-video to component video to help minimise the number of cable runs to a display. Three component video inputs are available, all with sufficient bandwidth for HDTV. A programmable master audio delay of up to 100 milliseconds permits use of modern digital displays without loss of lip sync.
Both the stereo and multi-channel performances of the AVR300 are exceptional, made possible with a huge toroidal power transformer and seven identical ultra low distortion power amplifiers designed to audiophile standards. There is a direct signal path for both stereo signals and the 7.1 multi-channel input. Power output is 120 Watts per channel into 4 or 8 ohms (two channels driven) and 90 Watts per channel with all seven channels driven. Preamplifier outputs are available for use with external power amplifiers. An independent second zone, with stereo line level audio and composite video, is supported. RS232 control is built in as standard; this also simplifies system software updates.
The master DSP chipset is the new Crystal CS49400, with 24-bit and 32-bit processing; the audio DACs, ADCs and volume controls are from Wolfson Microelectronics.
