    I recently bought an ex-demo AV8 from my local dealer, he's waiting for AV9 stock apparently, and I am pleased with it.

    However, the AV8 box did not contain the manual. It contained a print out of a PDF.

    The dealer said they could get me a copy of the manual from Arcam, but they've just supplied me with another PDF printout.

    Is this right for the AV8 manual? Or is it possible to get a "real" manual from Arcam?

    Why do you require the original manual if the pdf version is identical to the original manual?

    The PDF document is an exact duplicate of the original. If you can read it and understand it then don't worry.

    I want it for future resale value.

    A nice printed manual is much better than a single-sided printout from laser printer is it not?

    Before I purchased my AV8 (3 years ago), I wanted to check the manual, to see just how complex the thing was. (This because my wife was unable to get to grips with my then Meridian setup). I was not offered a PDF copy, but was forced to buy one from Arcam for (from memory) £6!

    I note that you have AV8 in your signature. Have you got two manuals then? Is £6 your opening price? ;)

    If I can find the original, you're welcome to it for the cost of postage, but it isn't in pristine condition and I think I wrote on it. I'll check it out tonight.
