    For those of you who have always dreamed of Tag but were put off by price, take a look at the latest HCC press releases or the Tag web site.

    £1800 and then add the extras you want. A cut down AV32R. This may well win many new friends.:D

    I didn't see this one coming.......looks really good. It looks like it will satisfy many out there. Perhaps dreams can come true ;)

    This is interesting...I will keen to know the inside of AV30.

    Which DSP and DAC chips will TMA be using ? I do not think it will be 24/192 DAC for this price.

    Also lower price equals no THX certification.

    Cheers

    You have to applaud Tag for trying to make their gear more affordable but I don't think they've gone far enough with this.

    I want to buy an AV32-192 this year (5.1) which will cost just over £2500. The AV30 with the digital reclocking option added will cost £2100. That £400 saving will cost me connectivity, DAC quality and upgradeability among other factors. I would much rather spend the extra few quid and get the fully-specced product with the full upgrade path.

    I think Tag have missed a chance to target the lower class of processors and compete with the Cyrus, Rotel and Myryad.
