Anyone found the Yamaha RX-V750 in UK, or purchased from Europe?

    Looking for the Yamaha RX-V750, but it seems the UK only does the amp version (DSP-AX750). Has anyone found the RX in the UK? Or, has anyone successfully bought one from Germany or elsewhere in Europe? Which company? Good service? Any compatibility problems? Which mains connectors does it have?
    Thanks as always for any guidance in this.

    There are numerous threads on this. I got my 750 from Germany. http://www.technikdirekt.de/ for about £300. Got delivered within a week. Manual in English. Cut off the German put and wired on a UK plug. Easy!!!

    The European version of the Yammy is different from the UK version. Firstly theres an improved power supply for the UK version, therefore making it louder than it's European counterpart. The sound is also tuned specifically for the UK market. Don't even bother comparing the two!!

    But the European model does have a tuner which is absent on the UK model!

    My friend has the UK version of the 750 and I have the German one. The manual is identical, and we can't tell any sound difference at all. The only difference we can see is the tuner. Whatever 'sound tuned specifically for the UK market' means is anyones guess! Does the rest of the world have different ears to us in the UK? This is made even more irrelevant when using pure direct which bypasses the processing.

    Sunil Banga,

    What is the basis for your statement about the power and sound differences? Do you have knowledge of the manufacture or repair of these things, or have you carried out A/B listening tests?
    The inclusion of a tuner means that the unit does not need tuner phono inputs. The positions on the back of the RX unit are taken up with video monitor outputs - one composite and one S-video, which I will probably find more useful than the built-in tuner!

    Thanks, Sunil Banga, it makes an interesting read, perhaps enough to steer me back to the DSP! I just hope that Yamaha don't tout this stuff, and use the higher spec parts in the early models, and then drop back to the RX spec components when the reviews are all done and dusted. They wouldn't ... would they?

    I hope not but mine's safely in my rack!!! :thumbsup: Then again, I did pay full RRP for it when it first came out :oops: Bought it completely blind before even reading any reviews but couldn't ask for more now :clap:

    By the way, you're better off buyin the DSP anyway because you'll be able to buy a separate hybrid FM/DAB tuner which will be of a much higher calibre than that in the RXV. Track down a heavily discounted one!!

    Not sure I need a radio tuner at all, with Freeview radio channels and everything on satellite as well! I think FM's only future is in the car! I can't help thinking that DAB is going nowhere - in the home you've got digital alternatives, and in the car who needs that last ounce of quality?

    You do realise the 757 is coming out very shortly?

    So the 750 should get discounted further. The 757 is likely to only have the added tuner with no further upgrades hence it still being 75 not 76. I would still go for the 750 if you are going to use Sky Digital radio as you say.

    I've been looking the web site and I haven't seen if they sell or not items to customers outside Spain. If somebody is interested I can ask them.

    Just found the RXV750 on sale at Pixmania - not as cheap as importing from Germany though.

    There is no VAT or customs as you’re importing from within the EU.

    Yamaha UK will honour the warranty too. :)

    Tejstar answered the VAT and warranty Q.

    The delivery was €22. Took about 5 days. Superb!
