    I see RS have this for £499. Is this a bargain or what? I have heard that there was an update on this model recently and you need to make sure you have a later one. Any idea how you can tell? I was going to wait to demo the 1080 after half deciding on a Marantz 5200 but this looks like a steal.

    Any comments please?

    I saw this too and thought it was a great deal. However, I was a little suspicious as RS describe it as an STRV555 whereas the Sony website has it as the STRVA555ES. The specs look similar but I wonder if RS's is a grey import. Not that that's a problem if the specs are identical.

    STRV555 is the old model and is not as highly rated as the 'a'. It also does not support dd ex, dts es etc. (only matrix) as it only has 5 channels of amplification.
