    I am thinking about buying this home cinema receiver. Does anybody out there know of any online reviews of this particular model.

    Any personal views would also be helpful.

    The one up from that (SR9200) has just been rated AV receiver of the year in HiFi Choice this month.

    Thanks for that info, I'll have to buy the magazine ....

    I have also heard that there is an SR7300 coming out; is there an SR8300 being launched as well? and if so, does anyone know the launch date?

    the new *300 series are being released soon and details/prices about them can be seen on www.unbeatable.co.uk
    I am sure I read that the *200 line had some issues and were not as musical as the previous models or the new, soon to be released models.

    Thanks for the info Cam,

    Had a look on unbeatable, but could not see the sr8300 listed (or sr9300 either).

    Does this mean that these two models are not going to be re-vamped?

    What do you mean by 'issues'. I have heard about 'a four second delay for the sound to kick in', is this what you mean?

    All the *200 series are being updated to *300

    That and the sound is not as sweet as the earlier models. If you do a search of this and the AVS forum there are some threads addressing some problems/critisms of the *200 range that seem to have been remedied with the *300 series.

    I have been given the opportunity to buy an 8200 for £450.

    Would that be a good option against a more modern Denon 2805?
