did they get tested alongside the Arcam AVR 280?

I'm interested for obvious reasons....

Yep

280 has gone from 5 * in August to 3 * now :rolleyes:

Verdict The AVR280's unique selling point is unique no longer: better-specified rivals outperform it for movies and are close for music

Wondering what it's unique selling point was in the first place?

One reason why I take WHF reviews with a large pinch of salt! If I'm researching a new piece of kit I look at real world experience from on here :thumbsup:

Does whoever has a high advertising budget with them affect their reviews?

What do you think?:rolleyes:

Yawn This has been asked umpteen times on umpteen forums. Yawn. Who cares? Use the reviews not for their star ratings, but for their actual descirptions and comments. Then as a previous poster said, go onto a forum for real world experiences. Yawn.

:eek: That's a price increase and a half, puts it out of my league. Hope the 4300ES is close to it's specs minus all the extra HDMI inputs

Same here I will need to look in the 4 to 500 hundred pound mark.

I think the only company thats selling a next gen receiver at that sort of money is onkyo, I do believe the model number is the TX-SR605 at £399.

I'm waiting for the Yamaha's to arrive in September before I buy anything.

do you think Integra employs same quality codecs for all these new sounds (TrueHD etc) ? But costs twice less.

Your comparing a UK price to a US price. Many electronics in the US are half the price they are here, including AV equipment. There are many threads on this already :)

as far as I can see Onkyo price in dollars is around 1600-1800, and integra announced at 800. So I expect pound price to be proportional.

The only concern if codecs are of descent quality otherwise no point to buy it even if it is cheap. I can stick with my old Yamaha for another year.

Are you based in the US? As far as I am aware (and I could well be wrong) Integra are not sold in the UK

oops. that I didnt know... but perhaps I can import one? and use 110v adapter......

Or have you got in mind some 400-500 quid HDMI 1.3a receiver with all HD audio codecs which can be bought here in next 2-3 months?
