    What is the purpose of a Reverb Amplifier in a home stereo setup? I mean, I fully understand what reverb is for on a guitar amp/etc, but what's their application in home audio? Was that just a short lived fad or something?

    I have one. They're cool to own. And you rarely encounter one. Use it occasionally in my tt setup with compression. Sounds just like the old days when I'd listen to the radio in the 70's.

    Here is a SR-202W, I just picked it up for $35.00, MINT case. Seller said it works nicely.

    I have not hooked it up yet any idea on how you do it? I will leave that to another thread.

    Reverb on a stereo is intended to add "depth" to the sound image.
    Make you think the room is larger.
    Best used in low levels otherwise it just sounds like an echo in a culvert.

    YMMV
