Hi, AFAIK the AV8's feature set has been unchanged for at least 18 months now. With the imminent release of the AVR300 it seems that Arcam will be offering a much much cheaper unit with features that their flagship processor lacks (e.g. DPLIIx and video up-conversion). So, in the light of that does anyone think that the AV8 is due for an upgrade and if so has anyone heard any rumours of forthcoming upgrades to the AV8? Regards, Jules.
