    Well I had a listen today and bought one, see my post "Arcam DV88, Am I wasting my money?" The amp used for the demo was the Arcam AVR200 AV Receiver which I also liked very much so much so I was prepared to have that also. Then the bombshell these newer amps don't cater for laser disks (remember them some people still have them). So it looks like I'm stuck with my yamaha A2 I need the AC3 RF in on the amp unless anyone can help?

    You can get an AC3 RF demodulator which will convert the RF signal from your laserdisc player into a standard Co-Ax or Toshlink digital output which can then be connected to a digital input on the ARCAM.

    Some of them are tiny little boxes a few inches square so easy to hide and forget about. Sony, Yamaha, Kenwood, and even Meridian do/did them.

    Quite a few people have posted wanted in the hardware for sale/wanted forum - could be worth a try.
