    Hi there,

    I ran a search but couldn't find much. Anyone knows when will we have these in Europe? And BTW, I understand that they now sport Room Equalisation, any other difference from 430/630?

    Many thanks
    J

    They'll also have full process Logic 7 which means it can be applied to Dolby/DTS 5.1 tracks rather than just stereo as on the 430/630. The Room EQ you've mentioned (which also sorts the Subwoofer out) and they have new Processor's on board as well. More info here:-

    Not sure when they're due out in Europe but I'd imagine it's fairly soon.

    Would you have some alternative recommendations on the same level of receiver, especially on the musicality. I am listening to a lot of music as well, and I would appreciate any suggestions.

    Many thanks :)

    The 635 also supports component up-conversion. The 630 does not have this.

    They should be available now or very soon. My local sevenoaks has the 435 already but are still waiting for the 635.

    Guys,

    we will be shipping the 435 and 635 at the end of may, if all goes to plan.
    Any german sites with them showing in stock are lieing, as we have yet to ship a single 230 V 4/635 unit as of todays date.

    HGowever, I can promise a massive performance increase over the outgoing range, I have listened to the new EZset/Eq functionality, and it transforms systems when you have to place speakers in non ideal positions (close to boundries, rooms with lots of glass etc etc).

    Best bet is to go and have a demo at your local store at the end of may - and base your oppinions on what you hear, not what the specification sheets say..

    Promising stuff this.

    Would like to find out just how well they implement L7 to be used purely as a processor.

    If it is any good, why bother paying the premiums of the high end Lexicons?
