    What is the difference between the DVD 30 and the DVD 506 Limited Edition? What is the price difference?

    I was told byLiam that the 506 is basically a recased DVD30. I've ordered the 506, 507 + Orius 7.1 package from AVSales for a very reasonable £1300 odd. Can't wait for it to come so I can play.

    506 has the components and styling from the new range (released in March apparently). It is not a repackaged DVD30.

    I believe a replacement for the 25 is due in March. The 506 is close to this in terms of internal boards and casing.

    regards

    Given that AV-sales are doing the HK/Infinity package at what initially appears to be an OK price I would say that the 506 would be similar to the DVD30. However since from the other prices on their site, it is clear that AV-sales are in general very very expensive. I would therefore probably have to say the the HK 506 must be a cheaper version of the DVD25 let alone the DVD30 for AV sales to offer this promotion. Just look how thin it is. They must have left half the components out. As for the 507 this must be a cheaper version of the 4550. I personally think I will pass on these unknown HK systems.

    I'd dispute that .. they vary, for example their price for the Z2 isn't a whole lot higher than, say, Ivojo who are considered on the low end (and AVS are offering a freebie remote which is worth something to some) .. OTOH their price for a Denon 2900 is quite a bit more than others.

    I think therefore one needs to look on an item-by-item basis .. there are far more expensive places to buy.

    Yes, I bought my Z2 and Onyx from them .. but I probably won't be buying my 2900 there. :)

    Have just been told by HK that the 507 model is based on the AVR 2250.

    do you mean 2550?
    Bit accedemic now as new range is due in a month or so and 507 almost sold out HK uk have no stock left at all. Specs are a lot closer AVR4550 than, 2550 & 505 are very similar specs.
