If you have good mono sound now then leave the system alone.

USL Inc's (Ultra Stereo's) JS-200 Series of processors might be a good starting point if you're looking to build full 4 channel or even 6 channel digital from mono over time. Their processors are configurable from mono to full channels with split surrounds. By adding cards additional channels (left, right, sub, surround) SR noise reduction, 1/3rd octave eqs, you can build your system as your budget allows you to add the associated speakers and amplification channels.

Using a JS-200 series, it is entirely possible to start mono, go to a single surround channel, add left & right stage channels, sub channel, and then go to digital either all at once or in stages without re-buying or sparing out any cards or equipment.

The problem with the USL is that in the front surround mode the Left and the Right channels appear 3db in the surround
A better bet is the Smart Mod6 as it is configurable from FS right up to 6 channel if ordered as such by moving a jumper and setting a dip switch
Also it is a lot less expensive out of the box

Also remember the system will sound no better than the work done by the engineer designing the surround array and amp system and final room tuning so the cheapest dealer price is not necassarily the best nothing comes free regretably

Since the whole Ultra system was gong to only cost $500 I thought I'd take a chance but maybe that is too much.

When you say the "whole Ultra system would cost $500" (USED?),I assume you mean the Ultra PROCESSOR (pre-amp, equalizer, Dolby SR compatible noise reduction, pro-logic capable decoder, adjustable time delay for the surrounds, and master fader, as a package)... IF that is the case, and IF that package provides built-in capability for the full 3 front channels w/surround AS WELL, it IS a good buy!... However, IF it is only a mono front/surround channel system which is NOT Dolby SR compatible, it isn't worth $500... Whichever it is, you will also need to ADD a MINIMUM of at least one Stereo Solar Cell @ about $125 each, probably a new narrow slit sound lens (?), Stereo Amp @ $200 or likely more, and at least 8 surround speakers (more is better) to use temporarilly with your present mono amp & front speaker... PLUS you are still going to need some type of red light exciter lamp, SOON... AND also wiring, installation and allignment costs, etc... IF this cost gives you ONLY front mono capability with surround (but without the built-in capacity to add the other 2 front channels later) you will have essentially wasted your money!...
