Moderators - not sure where to post this, but it seems that many people ask questions on products where they could easily find the answers by looking at the manual - both new and old items. Please move this to where you think it should go, but I would suggest making a new forum title for manufacturers' literature. It won't stop the very necessary user feedback, good/bad point debates, merit and demerit approach, but would at least give relatively good starting points from which to draw simple conclusions on technical specifications, features etc. Here are a few: Marantz Manuals Denon Information (USA) Denon UK Products Start Page Sony UK Manuals Entrance Page Yamaha AV Product Manuals Start Page Pioneer User Manuals Start Page Panasonic Operating Manuals US Panasonic Download Centre UK Arcam Handbooks Meridian Library I hope this doesn't introduce the concept of before people have even bought the box of choice! Just my little way of saying Happy New Year and wishing all members an audio-visually fantastic 2005!
