Hi
June04 edition of What Hifi has a "First Test" of the Arcam AVR300. They think it's a stunner and rated it as 5 stars.

Seems it's on a par with the best receivers out there for movies and significantly better for music. I'm looking forward to hearing it for myself.

Regards

I just bought one and love it.

It is an excellent buy.

I actually prefer it to my old Denon AVC-A1SE....go figure.

Ditto. Traded up to it from AVR200. It's been great so far. Sounds awesome. Great set of features.

Please bear in mind that this was not a FULL review...after a few months Whathifi or any other medium seems to find something to grope about after all.

In that respect I value the forum members' opinions no less than WhatHifi.
Therefore my question:

How do you value the stereo performance of the AVR-300?
Bass, mids, highs, soundstage depth etc.?
What Hifi says it compares to the A65 if I remember correctly, but what do they mean?

I did order an AVR300 but I doubt if it'll ever come, since they offered it for only 1265 Euro which can't be correct IMO, although they stuck to the offer as correct when I phoned...
So I may end up with my "humble" AVR5550 by HK, which sounds good, but I still wonder if somebody has anything to say about the expected musicality of the AVR300?

Where did you order it for 1265 Euro?

Shop in Holland, suppose no use to you...
What I expect is there'll be AVR-200 on the box when I pick it up...
Will keep this forum posted on my Quest !
Some of the Dutch dealers are kinda ignorant, one Arcam dealer near me suggested I should take the 200 as it was much cheaper and it was practically identical...

Well, if I come to pick it up and there's a real 300 in the box I won't say no!

...Yeah, and run for the door! :smashin:

Does anyone know the availability of the AVR300 in the UK, I think I read a post saying that there's so many orders that one ordered now would be delivered in September! :eek:
