    Sorry about the naff title I couldn't think of any short way to put it.

    I'm picking up a second hand TAG Mclaren AV32R this week and I dont know how to check whether the item has the specification listed by the seller when I collect it. the 7.1 and 5.1 bypass are easy enough by looking at the rear, but what about the software version, dacs, PLII, DTS-ES etc?

    Any help would be appreciated.
    Many thanks

    Ricky

    The software revision is visible when you power up the AV32R...it appears on the screen.
    As for the internals,if the DACs have been upgraded,it should be marked on the front,and the other options(PLII/DTS-ES)will be found in the menu options.
    DTS-ES and DTS-ES Neo6 both require the 7.1 upgrade.
    If you have the serial number,the Tag Helpdesk may be able to verify some of those things for you,if you explain the situation.

    I take it the seller has listed the spec for you?

    As regards the Dac's i would contact Tag. When i had my first Tag and i had the DAC's installed they did NOT change anything on the front panel at all other than a transparent stick-it note on the display panel to say that it had been up=graded with 24/192 DAC's, in the options fitted menu it definately did say that the EX board was installed but i really do not recall anything regarding the Dac's - take the appropriate steps via the serial number and Tag or the registration of up-grades to make sure.


    Regards

    Steven

    Thanks.

    I have the serial no, I'll give TAG a call. I hadn't given that a thought.

    Cheers

    I emailed the help desk at TAG and this was there reply about how to find out the spec.

    "Regarding what it has fitted, simply go into the On Screen Display > Change Set-up > AV Options + Backup. This page will show you what has been fitted to this unit".

    Would anyone with the AV32R please have a look on theirs to see if this works

    Thanks again

    Ricky

    This does does work - I've just tried it on the Dual Sharc model I'm trying to sell. I think it works on the older models too. However, you need to bear in mind that the old model runs a limited (but still excellent) set of features. The newer model runs the same software as the AV192.

    Edward has stated he has bought a 192R, hence the sale of the DP.

    Its for sale on Tags website in the 2nd hand market :)
