An acoustically great pre/pro for stereo or 5.1-channel home theater. Pre-dates HDMI (reflected in the low price). Excellent build quality (including an attractive titanium faceplate—see photos), and well-known great performance. This preamp was especially noted for the exceptional purity of its analog bypass mode, which means that your SACD and Blu-Ray audio will work here in full resolution. Also note: the 9080R has a phono input for a turntable. Very handy.
Cosmetically and acoustically perfect. Some light wear on the remote. All manuals included.
In the photos, the blue display lettering looks a bit uneven. That is an effect of the digital camera. Rest assured that the display functions normally, with even and steady lighting. The unit is in perfect working condition all around.
Smoke-free, pet-free home.
