If you want to sell that, send me a PM, I have the speakers that are supposed to go with it. That's the Yamaha reciever for their CAVIT computer sound system. I've been looking for the reciever for a long time now.

Thanks for the offer, but i dont think i'll sell it. I think ill rig it up to my playstation/tv and pick up a set of speakers for it.

What speakers do you have for it?

The NS-U50. It was designed specifically for use with CAVIT recievers: http://www.yamahamultimedia.com/yec/...avit/nsu50.asp

I lucked out and got mine for $23 shipped on Ebay, with only a minor dent on the front of it.

All you should need is some RCA interconnects (get something that is at least shielded, preferably double shielded...just don't pay any outrageous price for it either), and some speaker wire. I would go with 16ga wire for runs of up to 10 feet, and 14ga for longer runs.

The NS-U50 is actually a pretty nice speaker set. They are sealed box, and menat for near-field listening though....so if you are going to be any further than 4 feet from them, you are probably better off getting different speakers.

The CAVIT system was yamaha's answer to the Swans M-200, the Onkyo GX-D90, and a few other extreme quality 2-channel sound offerings that were hitting the market. I used to own the GX-D90, and aside from some design issues, was a decent buy at $80.

No, the rat bastards. I was just thinking of this yesterday but forgot to dig up the old thread. Watch now, it's probably in my mail box
