As above question.
Also, any news on the THX Ultra 2 software upgrade for it?
Dont worry, just read a review in HCC. Nuff said.
Was it any good (not that I'll be buying one or anything)?
It wasn't bad, but it was missing a few features, like DTS 96/24. hopefully tho' it might be on the Ultra 2 update.
Sound wise 4/5 stars
Build 4/5 stars
features 3/5 stars
Overall 4/5 stars
For an amp that costs nearly £2000 (approx HCC) I wanna see at least two 5/5 stars, both in sound and features. Shame really. It looked a nice amp.
Don't put all your faith in reviews. Probably still worth a listen to see for yourself .
John-D , www.soundandvision.uk.com have them on special for £1399 , which makes it a bargain. VMax
Hifi Choice said this was AV receiver of the year in it's price bracket. I know who I'd believe... (myself...failing that, Hifi Choice over What Hifi anyday of the month/year/decade)
I'll tell you something chaps. I really do think this amp looks the bee's knee's. I keep going back to the web-site to take a look at it.
They gave the amp 3/5 for features, but it's only missing DTS 96/24 and Ultra 2. Everything else looks to be there. And there's also a THX Ultra 2 software upgrade comming soon.
Also VMax, for £1399 I can take 4/5 for sound. It's gotta be better than my aging Denon AVC-A1.
I'm gonna be looking around for a week or two. I'll keep you posted.
Cheers for the advice
