    Having had a sony 1080 on back order just before the buzzing problem came about and Sony's subsequent withdrawal of the product, I am left with either waiting for the replacement 2000 to arrive which will be September at the earliest or sourcing something else.

    So I thought i'd have a quick look round at whats available, but can I find anything in stock? no.

    I got the money burning a big fat hole in my pocket such that I am losing small change at an ever increasing rate - who has a decent AV amp in stock?

    Sparky,

    acanning just got the new Yamaha RX-V640 from hifijunkies. This one is according to http://www.areadvd.de/hardware/yamaharxv640.shtml the new benchmark amp. I have translated the summary bit on the "Is the new Yamaha RX-V640RDS available yet?" I regard areadvd higher than the UK mags apart from HIFI-CHOICE as they really test the products in very detail.

    Hifijunkies 'had' 3 - all now gone


    was looking at the mid range if i was honest with myself. heard good reports of the 2011 but would I be able to tell if it was worth the extra money even if i could find somebody who had one in stock!

    YOu could go to a shop. They have stock rooms where they keep the stock and they can check. I too have found online shopping to be some what disappointting.

    Definitely agree with this. Used to buy off the net now get almost everything from 7oaks, you can't beat a good dealer except on price & I'd rather pay a few quid extra for demo's & better customer service. If I was looking for a 2011 that's where I'd go (and they'd probably advice you to buy the 1011 like they did with me)

    I wonder if it's the same one that was "in stock" when my mate tried to order one a few weeks back - turned out it wasn't. If it is in stock then thats a good deal on a great amp

    Sparky,

    www.homecinemaheaven.com has 1011S in stock for £550 excl delivery I think.

    Were hifijunkies out of stock for the 2011S?

    Also give www.multizonedvd.com and avland.co.uk a call as it doesn't say if they are out of stock.

    Have you called up sevenoakshif.co.uk branches?

    Most other online retailers including smaller ones e.g. hifistore and techtronics, were out of stock.

    Ended up working for most of today - but i have located both a 2011s and a 1011s. :clap:

    Assured both are reserved for me until I get there :smashin:

    As long as I can get my butt outta bed in the morning I should be setting one up in the pm.

    many thanks for your help so far


    Got this evening to choose between the two.

    The 2011 is some £200 extra which buys the auto setup component video circuitry as well the air studios tune.

    decisions decisions

    I ordered a 2011 from techtronics as soon as the stock level indicator changed from 0 to below 3. On 6 months interest free credit to boot !!. Took my deposit sent the credit agreement - 48 months at some silly apr with option of no interest if all monies paid within 6 months - bound to catch some one out - wise to where they were going I returned the agreement. 2 weeks later they called to say out of stock 6 week minimum wait I cancelled and only got my deposit back after a recorded delivery letter promising to contact the police on the grounds they were obtaining money by deception. BEWARE.
