    I'm interested in buying this package but cannot even find it on the Yamaha site, I found out about it in the awards 2005 edition of What Hi-Fi Sound and Vision.

    It seems to be the RX-V357 receiver together with speakers inc sub and is priced at £200(according to the mag), a bit of a bargain if you ask me.

    Does anyone know where I can buy this from?

    Also, has anyone got this package, if so what do you think of it?

    Cheers

    It's been discontinued.
    Try a search on this forum, it's been talked about lots of times.

    Burnrubber,
    So what do you think of it mate ????
    I really don't know why they discontinued it, as it has been well received.
    I guess it was a bit of a loss-leader and there was no profit to be had.

    Thanks, but it looks like they don't have stock now, they have a AV457PACK for backorder though, which is £250, might be tempted... shame they discontinued the AV57 :(
