    Hi,

    Have been reading with intrest of the TAG equipment for sale through a number of companies and thought I would start a new thread regarding this. I purchased yesterday through Hi-Fi BitZ the Dual Processor, assuming this to be a 5.1 version. Who else has done the same in the last 24 hours, surely there cannot be that many out there!!

    there might be more of them available than you think. IAG is not going to get my money but they know what they are doing.

    anyway , if someone needs high end home cinema processor and can live with the fact that TMA does not exist any more, this is deal of the century.

    Steve,

    I had the choice of upgrading my basic AV32R 5.1 to DP for £2200 or buying a new one at £1600 - not a hard decision :)

    Me too: £1800 to upgrade my existing processor, or £1600 for a new one - no brainer! I ordered mine yesterday. They are also doing an upgrade to 7.1 for £595.

    Hi All

    Hope I have made the right decision, if not I'm in trouble with the missus. I to was looking at an upgrade IAG was gonna charge me £1600 plus an extra £250 if the unit is over 18 months old. Should sound much better than my existing bp-192 even with 5 channels.

    I Have a SP AV32R and have ordered a DP for £1600. I would like the dolby headphone option but HiFiBlitz don't seem to know if that will come with the DP unit or not. I know that it's an option and would pay the extra £100.

    HiFiBlitz also said that the units would be available by the end of the month and if I wanted the headphone option I would have to send it back for another 4-5 weeks :eek: .

    I have to say, they don't know much or is it that IAG tell them nothing other than, here is a bunch of equip, go sell

    Looks like we are in the same boat as all people that ordered the FLR's, although it would appear they all had a happy ending, suppose its the price you pay if you wanting a good deal.

    Also the option to purchase a Black DP has now disappeared of HiFi Bitz website. Only silver left!!

    There should only be a delay if you want the 7.1 upgrade.

    Just had a look at the site and as far as I can see they only have single processor models left. Am I missing something? I must admit I don't know too much about Tag processors and the multiple upgrades but I'm a sucker for a bargain and I really should have a decent processor in my system.

    Regards FRANC

    For those of you who ordered 100x5Rs from Lintone, check with your credit card company to see if the deposit/full charge has been taken... If it has :thumbsup: :D :smashin: if not :thumbsdow :( :censored: :mad:

    I bought the DP for £3500 in October 04 direct from IAG.

    Should I feel sick :oops: .

    Well I do.

    All those of you who have bought the DP are in for a treat, it's a fab piece of kit.

    Well...those certainly moved quickly....I was assured by the HiFiBitz helpdesk that they do have a number of DP machines available,but no idea of how many that was in total,hence I bought one quickly.

    I got the receipt from Lintone today - check the post; confirms £699 + £12 p&p - cheeky to debit in advance; but there is no going back for them!

    I noted hifibitz response of dropping the 100x5 to 999 if purchased with a AV32.

    Very tempted & is a bargin.

    Currently have a VSA AX10 hooked up to a FLR.

    Big enough difference to justify 2.2K for a DP 7.1 ?

    Any thoughts/opinions welcome ( within reason of course ! )

    Hi
    Personally I feel the 100*5 is a great amplifier if your speakers don't have a low impedence rating.

    HiFiBitz now have the 250 amps - stereo in one box? Are these such a bargain?

    How much better are they than the 100 x 5R?

    The 100 x 5 amp. is very good; the 250 x 2 or 3 is a much better amp. with the extra 'horses'.

    Richard,

    I have a 100x4 and a 250x3; use the 250x3 across the front and the 100x4 for the rears and backs very successfully. I have not tried the 100x4 on the fronts but the 250x3 drives them in superb fashion (better than the biamped 8000MXs I used before).

    Thanks for the tip off about the 250x2s. I think it's a great price as Sevenoaks have them at £2400! Such a good price that I just ordered one!

    Regards,

    Derek

    I've also tried the 100x5R,and I think my views are well known here....it's ok,but somewhat limited into difficult or current hungry loads,and certainly wasn't up to the job of running a set of B&W 805s at more than moderate volumes.

    The 250,I'm told is a very different beast,and would be worth considering over the 100x5 if possible.

    Hmm, missed out on the black AV32R 192 BP on hifibitz (the DP although very attractively priced is a bit too steep for me).

    So if any one wants to sell his for a reasonable price, I'm interested...

    And if any of the upgraders to the DVD32FLR wants to lose their CDT20R with T2L....

    You guys have it so good on that side of the Channel!


    Cheers,
    Menno
