the bummer is i completely misjudged its size. i need something smaller. i the rest of my audio system is on its way, so i haven't installed this item nor connected it to anything; i.e. it's totally unused.
yeah, my ebay name is "faeces". don't ask. (at least there was no risk it would be taken. )
if anyone is interested, please let me know. it retails for $280. i'll sell it for the auction price, but will ship and insure anywhere in the US for free. i'll put it up for auction in a few days if no one here takes it. thanks guys/gals.
