    Hi

    New receivers are launched beginning of Feb, AVR 230 and so on. These are now on their international website and availability sometime mid Feb.

    After a new amp to replace my Marantz 4200 with Mission M74, M7C2, M7DS and M7C1 (rear) and a Veloydyne CHT-10 Sub which yet to try as my amp is gone. Was going for a 5400 but thinking about maybe a HK 230 instead (as I want the 6 speaker upgrade ideally)

    Have listed to a 507, was impressed but trying not to spend TOO much on this upgrade, so wondering anyone got any ideas on whether the 507 is overkill or not, considering my room aint that large.

    Any ideas????

    Thanks for any advice in advance

    I suggest you read my thread on 5400


    have just brought a HK AVR 507. Beware they're going like hot cakes as it's compares to the HK4550/HK5550 which cost more.

    I have a very small room it's not the power that persuaded me it was the pure clarity of the sound. It fills the room with well balanced dynamics.

    Logic 7 does a great job of turning stereo into 7.1 it can also
    turn 5.1 or stereo into 7.1. (Smilar to Dolby Prologic 11x).


    Also a great amp for stereo use.....


    I suggest you get a demo.....

    Cheers Depsi

    Have read your thread, it what started me thinking of more money for my upgrade ....... I did really like the 507, it sounded well rounded but no idea what it would sound like on my missions (next upgrade I guess!)

    Oh well I reckon I would pay 350 so whats another 127 I guess.

    Going to call to get delivered for friday I suppose.

    Cheers

    Steve
