    Anyone seen the spec on the AVR 250 yet?
    Prices?
    Are recent AVR 300 purchasers gonna be sick?

    I heard that it is a stripped down AVR-300 (75W/channel). No regrets here.

    No pre-outs!
    Don't be daft, Arcam wouldn't be that stupid would they?

    There's a picture of the front in the new what hi-fi and they say the 250 will be demo'd at their show in November

    The AVR250 has no preouts. Audiophile Systems has a pdf brochure on their website. The AVR250 only has a Sub out where you would find all the preouts on a AVR300.

    I agree it wasn't a good idea. I think that'll be a deal killer for a lot of potential AVR250 customers. The U.S. model is priced $500 lower than the AVR300 ($1699 vs $2199).

    But the avr200 has preouts so why not on the more expensive avr250?

    They're obviously trying to make a more "affordable" version of the AVR300.

    I think the lack of preouts on the AVR250 is to persuade people to go for the AVR300.
