As above. Thinking of getting one. Can anyone advise?
I've had mine about 5 weeks now owned avr 65 before which was good
but 430 is even better surround is superb. (7.1 exellent)
CD reprodution is also very good, I tried this amp against the ArcamAVR 200
and it was much better. The new Arcam may be even better but your
looking at alot more dosh.
Couple of questions...
How noisy is the fan and how often does it come on?
Are there any significant audio delays changing format?
What's the story on the firmware update iix and dropouts?
I have yet to hear the fan, but then it is behind a glass door .
No delays at all as yet. Seems fine. As for the firmware upgrade
u've totally lost me,is there one and what does it do.
I ask on the fan because one guy complained the 630 fan was too noisy. Here...
On the firmware HK have confirmed it's coming one day. When and how it can be updated yet to be said (or if it costs!).
"We are currently in the final testing stages of an upgrade for the AVR 430 and AVR 630 that will not only add Dolby ProLogicIIx, but upgrade the system's firmware for improved performance. Due to the nature of the testing and certification process we cannot say when the upgrade will be available, but we expect it some time in the next eight to ten weeks. Please check our web site periodically, as the upgrade will be available there when it is ready"
Saying this for 5 months.
Did you get yours in UK?
All i can say is may be it's a bigger fan in the 630.
I had a listen yesterday and did'nt notice it at all,
may be mine is'nt working. soon find out when my
amp blows up. I will have to keep an ear out for the
I have an Avr 630, and i´m very satisfied with it.
My fan hasn't worked so far, although it runs a bit hot.
About the firmware, i´m waiting for more news.
