    Hi,
    Is it possible get hold of Pioneers VSX-D912K Reciever in the UK/Europe?

    Although I haven't had a demo yet, everywhere I've checked seems to rate this very highly on a quality Vs price rating.
    I've heard a friends' Elite Pio with MCACC and was amazed by the quality. (I'll be using Gallo Adivas+Nucleus for speakers)

    One UK supplier been told it won't hit the UK until later in the summer but just can't wait :(

    I've found one US site that will ship international ($309.99+Shipping) and I assume that the volatage will be auto sensing so will just need a converter plug. Of course I'd prefer to buy from a UK supplier :clap:

    Any advice appreciated...thanks
    Rick

    Last time I heard, it was supposed to be available in June here (Finland).

    Be aware that the VSX-D912 has no OSD and its crossover frequency seems to be limited to between 100-200 Hz (which is unusual), and hence cannot be set at the typical 80 Hz as recommended by THX!

    Also, it seems to be less compatible with regards to speaker impedance; 8-16 ohm (instead of the usual 6-16 ohm).
