I have a 5800 that I use in a test rig. It's a beast of a unit. and well worth reintroducing into a 2ch or Hometheater setup. Plug in an Oppo 103 and it's like your breathed new life back into the unit. the DAC is still very capable as well. It's a solid unit all around. No HDMI required with the Oppo either. There are tons of ways to incorporate and utilize the 5800 with a little imagination. Airport express into one of the toslink digitial inputs for high quality streaming is just one of many ways to squeeze additional life out of this unit.

Glad to see a few more of these getting resurrected and put back to work.
