Stunning Emotiva RSP-1. Let me say this upfront; pictures do not do the RSP-1 justice. It is a gorgeous piece of equipment. The sides are finished in beautiful polished piano lacquer. The front panel sports large pieces of brushed milled aluminum. The rear is home to high-end Tiffany style connecters. All of these characteristics are gone from the Emotiva products of today due to cost cutting. The RSP-1 is a true example of, "they just don't make 'em like they used to."
I purchased this unit last spring to use as the hub of a lovely 2ch. rig that I was going to assemble. Well that never happened and I don't see it happening in the foreseeable future. I used it no more than to check its operational status after I purchased it and it has been sitting boxed and in my closet ever since. These are very sought after and typically hard to come by. They are sought after for good reason, as they sound amazing. My standards are high and I wanted a unit as nice as I could possibly find. I waited a long time, but my patience paid off. There are four small feet-marks about the size of a Quarter each, on top of the unit from a component being set on top. They are not scratches. I am going to rate the unit on the low side with an 8/10, just to be safe. I will assure you however, that this is in very, very nice shape.
It is in superb condition. I did not have the original outer shipping carton, so I purchased one from Emotiva. The inner box is factory original. All original plastic is there, as well as manual, spare battery for remote, power cord, and some printed literature from on-line about the RSP-1. The unit is registered in my name with a warranty good until 1/1/2013. I will happily transfer warranty to the new owner upon purchase.

This is my first sale on Audiogon, however I have been an eBay member since 2001 with a feedback rating of 100% under the username of wake_rep. Buy with confidence. Unit is boxed and ready to go. All pictures were taken today. I will ship within 24hrs. of receiving funds. PayPal fees and shipping included in price. Shipping to CONUS only. Local pick up is fine and I will knock off $25.
