I thought this was a good price for a decent amp. Im putting this with 6x kef C1 bookshelf's and an ipod dock to create a music system in a shop!

Onkyo TX-SR508B AV Receiver

The TX-SR508B is a 7.1 channel AV receiver, which allows you to unleash the power and potential of your films, music, games and other entertainment sources in fantastic surround sound. Unlike most entry level AV receivers, the Onkyo TX-SR508B supports HDMI 1.4a – the latest standard in HDMI cables so it's also capable of handling 3D content via it's four HDMI 1.4a cables as well as providing amazing picture and sound quality from your DVD player, Blu-ray player and games console.
All well as delivering outstanding picture quailty the Onkyo TX-SR508B will take your music and audio and transform it into high-quality sound. Dolby Pro Logic IIz delivers surround sound from any audio source. On the Onkyo TX-SR508B you can incorporate two front high speakers into your surround-sound setup as an alternative to the two back speakers. The front high channels carry ambient, non-directional audio that immerses you in sound when watching films or playing video games.
Top quality sound comes from Burr-Brown DACs, which are jitter resistant and play rich, highly-detailed audio at an incredibly powerful 130W through each channel. With the Onkyo TX-SR508B’s ability to decode Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio (lossless audio formats), your music will sound exactly how it was intended when it was recorded in the studio, while ensuring your Blu-ray discs sound incredible. Digital audio is also supported. The Onkyo SR508B handles TX-Dolby Digital Plus and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio, so DVDs, radio broadcasts and online content sound great.
Three Audyssey technologies are integrated into the Onkyo TX-SR508B, too, ensuring the audio from your speakers fits your rooms perfectly, while adjusting sound fluctuations to give you a smooth listening experience and consistent bass.
Powered Zone 2 and 2 Line Outs enable you to play a different audio source in another room, through a separate pair of speakers.
Thoughtful additions to the Onkyo TX-SR508B include an input for your portable devices, such as your iPod, and an AM/FM radio with 40 presets

Amstrad is a great make,just see the valuations they get on the antiques roadshow.
#8
for a few quid more I'd go for an Arcam FMJ AVR600

Had this amp for a while now and I'm very happy with it. Paid £300 for mine so this is a bargain.

If you haven't heard of Onkyo, you need to get out more or buy mags with less pictures and more words.

You can get an Alba from Argos for this price.

#17
Seems to be the standard price at RS and peter tyson etc. maybe good if you get Quidco too.
#18
so you're putting in a decent amp and speakers and your source is an ipod?

Hmmm - you don't sound like you know what you're doing.
#20
yes the ipod will provide for shuffle with thousands of songs - not even a 5 disc changer can do that and multi cd changers are less reliable...

and id say onkyo's profile has been raised greatly by hotukdeals as i knew of them but now as much as now!
#21
oh yeah and im getting the c1's for 130 a pair!

I bought an Onkyo amp the other day to replace my old Sony amp. I had a look at the camparable Sony in the shop but I went for the Onkyo and I'm really glad I did - great quality, well built, sounds great and with good features. The only advantage the Sony amp had was Bravia integration but the man in Richer sounds did not think that was worth the bother.
As the guy in the shop said, Onkyo specialise in AV receivers and that's why they are less well know in this country.

Thought Tonka only made toy cars??

9p cheaper at PeterTyson

Hi from Germany,
I bought almost the same receiver called 578 at "Saturn.de" in Germany for 199,- €. Quite a difference to the English price range... Therefore my vote is neutral.
Concerning the technical features the small Onkyo seems to be very powerfull.
Bye

another onkyo thread........lol
#31
surely the yamaha 567 for £199 deal is better than this one, the yamaha is musically better sounding, has got the same features as the 508 and is £50 cheaper ??
#32
HUKD is just unbelieveable. This isn't even a deal. It is this standard price in several places.

Please don't tell me your one of these shops that blasts out tasteless drivel all day!?

It was the 10% quidco that makes this a good deal otherwise i was happy at amazon at the same price with free prime delivery!

I think my microwave is an 'Onkyo' which I understand was Asda's own brand before they brought in the 'smart price' range.

Seems expensive for non branded - I'd see how much the Sony's are but if you're going to get it make sure you pair ti with some good quality Sony speakers

I think he's trying to be a WUM which is pretty poor. Jokes been done to death.

As for pairing it with an ipod, really? You're going to spend the best part of £500 and then put some crappy clipped and compressed music through it?

Go out, buy a decent CD player. Play a tune through it directly into the amp (IMVHO I'd ensure you used a digital transfer method such as optical)

Then play the same tune through the ipod.

I hear what you're saying about the amount that you can store, but a decent media player (digital connection) and music in FLAC format will offer you the same freedom.

I'm thinking you may need to adjust your settings on the ps3, as I had a 307 until recently which managed 1080p from my ps3 ok.

Or Rockbox your iPod and play uncompressed audio through it?
