So after agonizing for quite a while I couldn't take it any more and bought Rick's (rromeo923) Parasound HCA-800II and C/PT-600. There doesn't seem to be much said about these units on the web so I emailed Parasound service. Later that day I get a response from none other than Richard Schram, founder and President of Parasound Products, Inc. How cool is that!
Anyway, he is going to have his tech department see what they can dig up and send to me.
This kind of service really makes a person feel proud to own their products (kind of like Polk Audio).
