    Yes....I just ordered one... Should be here on the 30th...I'm jacked! (A receiver with 7.1 with external amp)

    Sidenote...there are NO movies that utilize 7.1 yet and only a handfull that can do 6.1......jfyi..

    Wow...I can't wait to try that card out myself, Burke..

    The only complaints I'm hearing so far, mostly relates to recording with it.....the playback is supposed to be killer! I suppose that a few more driver upgrades and that's going to be one hell of a buy! Oh yeah, keep checking the site for the DVD-A player software..due in Febuary.

    Oh yeah...this is what is comming next Friday.

    It's an older Pioneer with Dolby....110 watts to the front..70 to the rear and 70 for the center...but...My kids are already fighting over it.

    I actually bought the new one for almost half that cost from www.Etronics.com

    I'm still chompin' at the bit over that new Revolution card....

    Burke....you have no choice...a review when you get it up and running....please.

    Errr...ummm....yeah..thanks!.lol

    Stereo is a hobby as well as collecting music. I've been doing this since I was 16 and am almost 49. I drive my cars till they are really worth nothing...dress plain..eat simple and work hard...

    I splurge on music and every 8 to 10 years on stereo stuff.....

    New speakers are next but not tell the end of the year.....and my wife will be teed about that purchase also...
