After a nervous flip of the switch and going through Bob's start up instructions I was up and running. Right now it's hooked up to a $5.00 Goodwill CD player and some old JBL speakers that I didn't have the heart to throw away. Unbelievable sound!! Can't wait to put it into my system in the living room.
Thanks to all of you. I have read and learned a great deal from these pages.
Anyone with patience and a willingness to learn can do this.
