My man cave has been turned into my wife's permanent home office following the lockdown so I'm having a cleanout. First things to go are:

 

Rotel A12 Integrated amp - https://www.listeningpost.co.nz/assets/A12_InfoSheet_NA_182017_1.pdf $600 with free shipping (I have the original packaging).

 

Anthem MRX-520 AV Reciever - https://www.anthemav.com/products-current/series=mrx-series-gen3/model=mrx-520/page=overview $1000, includes the ARC microphone which is possibly the beat room correction mic I have ever seen - don't have packaging so shipping could be problematic. Pick up in Wilton, Wellington.

 

Both are in as new condition and are approximately 2 years old.

 

PM if interested.

I got quite interested when I first saw this ad and then was disappointed to find the Anthem doesn't do Atmos which is really essential these days (IMHO)

There are many people (myself included) who only have 5.1 or 5.2 systems and probably will not be adding anymore speakers. Mine are all built into the walls so bit of a pain to add things.

Getting a bit OT but I had the same problem with speakers (5.1) and I solved it by buying a pair of these

 

 

 

https://www.amazon.com/Debut-Dolby-Atmos-Modules-Black/dp/B07B4P9TYJ

 

 

 

Mounted on top of my front speakers they bounce the directional sounds off the ceiling and provided a surprisingly realistic 3D Atmos effect. And no holes in the wall required!
