Well, this has to be the bargain of the century. I've managed to get a Harman Kardon AVR-8500, new and boxed, for £999 . Quite a ridiculous price I think you'll agree . Especially from Sevenoaks... And finally, something that can drive my speakers full-throttle & not die whilst doing so. From those in the know, is there anything I should know about this receiver before it gets here (which isn't going to be for a few weeks)?? Russraff? Spligsey? I don't think I could've found a better piece of kit for this price . Dimmy's very happy .
