Looks like the 976 Processor isn't available anymore. That is a damn shame. Here was a processor with 9 channels of fully-balanced, high-quality outputs for $1k. Insanely good deal. I guess the lack of support for newer audio formats killed it, but the raw performance is a lot better than any of the behemoth processors that are had from any of the major processor manufacturers. It was the perfect vehicle for putting together a lower cost\/high-performance home theater using active speakers. Let's say you made that the heart of a Presonus Eris XT active speaker system with a couple Hsu subs, you would have had an absolutely killer home theater for less than $5000 that nothing could touch for the same cost. It hurts to think that Atmos 'height' channels are what killed it. No equivalently-priced Atmos system would sound nearly as good.
