The low condition grade was given due to the fact that the video section of the unit is non-functional. Cosmetically it would rate around an 8. I'm selling it to be used as a DAC/Preamp and the video section is not needed for this purpose. The remote may not be fully functional but it's possible that the unit may respond to a properly programmed universal remote if it has the Proceed codes. It is being sold "AS IS" at a very low price. The unit works and sounds great.
The sound with the Proceed emerges from a black background, no audible noise, at least to my ears and those of others that have heard it. Detailed but warm, no grain and no listening fatigue.
