Fully Loaded AV192R with video upscaler up to 2K.
Still one of the best AV Pro/Pro units ever produced.
The Tag McLaren features
The is unit has all the options retail was $32,000 ,base price is $18,000, Scaler $8900, FM Tuner $1800, plus external out board supply and 7.1 Balanced Outputs. The unit has 5.1 BYPASS for direct analog output.
This is a true reference grade audio component with that sounds as good as anything you can buy today. The blue book value says $10,500 not including the above upgrades.
