I prefer not to ship the receiver, but if I did, it would be the cost of the shipping which may be significant as the unit is pretty heavy (26.3 lb, according to the specs).

Shipping won't be cheap....it's light compared to my Sony DA777ES which is about 55 pounds. Thanks, but I will pass.

No problem. I am going to post it on Kijiji and Craigslist as there's been little interest here. I wanted to give the folks here first chance :)
