    Hello all,

    Looking to get a nice stand alone 5.1 decoder, I'm not looking for anything fancy don't need any other features and I don't need any amplification or anything like that. After much looking around a Cyrus AV5 is as close as I've seen to ideal for this in the UK (lots of other decoders makes out there ofc, but not many in the UK pre-owned market for whatever reason!)

    I've seen a Cyrus AV5 go for £80 on this forum before and I would be happy to pay that for one if anyone has one collecting dust in the attic.

    Also it'd be getting used and going to a good home, which is certainly an important factor to me at least, weird how we build emotional attachments to inanimate objects...

    Sincerely,
    G

    I've got an AVMaster 8.0, the one with built in power amps, if that was suitable for you.

    But higher than £80 though, be wanting £165 delivered.

    If interested let me know.

    Hey L30 thanks for the quick response!

    I don't need any amplification or 7.1 so its a bit overspec, but from looking up the spec sheet it seems you can switch the amps off and still decode 5.1, so it should do the job nicely. I'm willing to split the difference and go to £125 if that's acceptable? Where are you based?

    The price is £165 delivered & only that price so I can't accept your offer, hope you get sorted.

    Sure.

    I found an alternative unit & have PM'd the OP with details so he can make a decision. If he wants to go with it then I will update here, just didn't want to advertise the unit publically here just yet to prevent other users contacting me as has happened before with people from outside the UK.

    For the sake of clarity the OP is going to buy an alternative Cyrus unit from me with declared faults which he is happy about. The payment has apparently been sent so the delivery will be organised by me so we are proceeding. I'm sure he will update this thread himself soon.

    Yup its as L30 said, we have been negotiating behind the scenes on another Cyrus unit which is a much better fit for what i am looking for. I have made the bank transfer so just waiting for it to turn up at my house now! Can't wait!
