Dear Mr. Heck:

In your letter dated November 1, 2004 you requested a tariff classification ruling.

The items in question are a radiobroadcast receiver/amplifier and printed circuit boards designed for use within the receiver. The receiver is denoted as model number RX-V2400.

It is designed to receive radiobroadcast programming and provide amplification for a home theater system.

The six various printed circuit boards provide various discrete functions such as digital signal processing, video signal processing, signal reception and tuning, signal conversion, on/off and control functions as well as the power supply board. These printed circuit boards are designed principally and or solely for use with the specified radio receiver. The power supply board is denoted as part number WB723200 that has 840 watts or power.
