My brother got one on the Amazon deal so was round at his place and its just what I need.... ta !
:thumbsup:

Got mine from Amazon to upgrade my system. Only got it set up on 2.1 at the moment until I move.
I can say that even though I am only using analogue connections the sound is crystal clear, very precise sounds as well.
It does lack the warmth of my old system, but handles my speakers much better. The Audyssey system auto setup is awesome as well, very helpful...although I still sat there for 30mins and tweaked it.

Can't wait to hear it 5.1 and DTS-HD/True HD!

Make sure you verify whether items come with 3 months (for open box/returns) or 1 year (discontinued) warranty!!!!!!

Cheers thanks for the tip..... on the way to the store now :thumbsup:

....well I was..... In the words of Richad Wilson..... I DONT BELIEVE IT ....!!!

Just checked the stock on website...and my store is now all gone ...... its just not meant for me to get one these bad boys ..grrrrrr

Picked up a returns but as new (still had all the packaging, blabla) one from Bournemouth this evening (they said the customer returned it within 14 days to buy a better model, or something like that). I missed out on the Amazon deal too, and spotted it a day before it was actually posted, but only became interested in looking for a receiver about 3 weeks ago and had no idea it was a good price, and was about to order it the night before it became more publicly known (i.e. HUKD) but missed it. Oh well! I did get RS' nice 5 year warranty extension for just £18 so probably worth it!
Also picked up the Tannoy SFX set with 5 year warranty, but those are being delivered as they were out of stock. :p Can't wait to set it all up.
#9
damn good price, heat added, i do feel like voting cold when somethings a lot cheaper than i paid lol
#10
oooh i wish i had the money. my cambridge audio amp has just packed in. speakers keep dropping out or making static noises (nothing a thump doesn't fix)

so...anyone want to buy me one as a gift?
#11
So tempted by this, but 4 HDMI ports seems a bit low - 360, PS3, Sky HD and a media PC. What happens when Nintendno's new console comes out? Or you want to quickly plug your laptop in? :(

(edit) meh, oh well - not in stock at Cheltenham. Probably would've taken the hit for this price. £180 for one of these is a fantastic deal.
#12
i would say that 4 hdmi slots is perfect for most setups the fact ur worrying about an as yet un released bit of kit you dont own makes me think you shouldnt buy one due to hdmi 1.4 coming out soon anway ;)
#13
hi what can i use this for?
#14
wow superb deal. I've got an Onkyo 606 which i've had a couple of years now. Which one is better this 507 or the 606?

you use a optical cable from Sky HD or from the PC and directly feed HDMI into TV.....i honestly think you should do some more research before you ask such silly questions!!
#17
And maybe you should stop making silly assumptions about other peoples setups :)

If you have a TV wall mounted, with a single cable running into an AV reciever, it's really not as easy as you claim to 'just run another cable'. The main appeal of an AV receiver like this for me means a single HDMI cable will do the job, and I don't have to worry about taking the TV off the wall, moving the TV stand and messing about trying to run another cable through the wall.

i think he is talking about the amp mate, you dont need another lead to your tv, just a single hdmi but you could plug in the optical cable into the onkyo unit from the sky box, similar to my setup.

this get a bit hot when its on for a while but the manual says that's normal, just make sure you have some clearance for it to breathe. also when enabling hdmi pass through when on standby its uses 30w :?

30watt on standby...damn!

bought the TXSR307 at the weekend for £149 and also got a set of Yamaha speakers also for £149.
Sounds great.
Not sure what the difference between the models is but I am happy with mine and would recommend Onkyo.
#23
where from Jimmy?

I'm desperate to get a decent amp - I've got a budget of around £200 to get the amp and a sub-woofer, and this would have been ideal for me - but as always with HDUK deals, none near me.
#24
Any speakers you can recommend that go with this?
#25
this might be a good option for those who cant get it, http://www.richersounds.com/product/av-receivers/sony/strdh800/sony-strdh800, what hi fi only give the onkyo 3 stars,not too impressed with the sound! most important thing!! the sony gets 5 stars! decisions decisions!!

Sorry should havce mentioned that, got it from Richer Sounds and similar to this deal it was on their VIP email I think and was an ex display model with full 12 months warranty too.

One comment I will make about this and most of the other AV receievers I looked at is they all look dated. I had a Sony stereo separates about 10 years ago and these look like that did! It even makes the dink sound when you turn it on.
Also they all seem to be quite big, need to find a permanent home for mine as looks a bit out of place at the moment. Silly thing is though it has so many heat "escape" holes in the top you can see straight in and there's hardly anything in there, sure there was no need to make it so big.

Do you guys mean use the Sky box as a HDMI passthrough or something? If not, I have no idea what you're on about sorry. I always figured optical cables were audio only, so what would I do about the picture?

I think they may mean connect the Sky box via HDMI to the tv (which presumably would have some spare inputs if only one was being used by the AV receiver) and then an optical cable to the AV receiver.

Sky will only transmit video through HDMI to the Amp so you will have to use optical as well to the amp to get sound.

Sky - HDMI -> Amp
Sky - Optical Cable -> Amp

Amp - HDMI -> TV

At least that's my understanding.

All Av Recievers get hot, some hotter then others. My old Technics which I replaced with this very unit (albeit from Amazon) was actively cooled (it had a fan) and still got red hot, ie you could barely hold your hands on it. But never had a problem with it really, and it was fine. Breathing space is essential as it is with any console or tv as they generate heat, and a heat build up can cause components to burn out...just look at the 360s RROD to see that!


Let me try and explain as much as possible what you can do with this unit...
Right it is an AV Receiver, that means Audio-Video Receiver, thus with the 4 hdmi in ports you can plug in the likes of your:
SkyHD+
Blu Ray Player
HT/Media PC
PS3
Xbox 360
This will carry the audio and video to the unit, and then you use a single hdmi cable from the unit to the tv (or projector:-D).
N.B. The SkyHD+ will only give you pcm stereo over hdmi, thus use a optical cable for the sound to ensure you get dolby surround (when available).

Then if you have a standalone CD player you can also plug that in, or an iPod Dock via the likes of RCA cables.

The sound shall then be distributed to the speakers, which you can set up in any configuration you like of stereo if you want, or of course full 5.1 surround. Now as this AV Receiver supports Tru-HD and DTS-HD it will support the latest very highest quality sound on blu rays.
What speakers you go for depends on price limit.

This AV Receiver also has something called the Audyssey system which is a little speaker you put in certain areas of the room and it will auto adjust your system and register the distance of your speakers, and their limits. Thus setting them roughly to what they should be. This will be ok for most, especially if you haven't got much idea on tweaking these things.
For those who like tweaking further, I'd recommend it, but do use the system first to set it up as the stereo channels ie listening to Music sounds much better when enabling the Audyssey equaliser.

The unit also has something called 'Zone 2' this allows you to plug in a secondary set of stereo speakers and you can independently control them. This allows you to for example install speakers into a kitchen, dining room, garden, or whatever takes your fancy and use them if and when needed.

The unit also has 'Pure Audio' which is also nice for listening to more calmer music styles ie from the iPod, as it stops the processing which the unit does, and just reproduces the sound as it was sent to the unit.

The 'HDMI passthrough' which people are saying is where the unit even when off will 'passthrough' the unit and still send it to the TV as normal. I have yet to test the functionality of this, but it should send all video and audio through fine. This is handy for when you might just be watching general TV and you don't want to use the full speaker system.


Hopefully that is of some help to people, I will check back a couple of times today, so if anyone has any further questions I will try and help as much as my knowledge allows.

Shame the ipod dock is so expensive. Now, if it was integrated...

awoodhall2003 - What speakers do you recommend?

Well I'm afraid the speakers are:
AE Aegis One x2
AE Aegis Two (Floorstanders) x2
AE Aegis Centre
Sony Active Subwoofer (cant remember model number atm).
I got the sub from a audio shop in Bexleyheath closing down, and the speaker set from a guy on AVForums.
Personally it greatly depends on your budget, and to be honest the speakers I've heard are either older model which you can't buy anymore or pretty high end stuff.

People say the Yamaha NSP280 5.1 Speaker Package - £149.95 and pretty good, although I'd probably go for the Onkyo SKSHT528 5.1 Package - £169.95.
However I dont really like satellite speakers, and prefer bookshelves as a minimum, which would lead me to probably go for something like
4 x Q Acoustics 1010i - £100
Q Acoustics 1000CI (centre) - £80
Cambridge Audio S80 Sub - £120 (I don't like forward firing subs)

Obviously a lot more, but I prefer the sound from them, especially as I do a lot of music listening as well. This is not a recommendation per se, but just on face value what I'd go for, which is difficult without hearing them first, but Richer Sounds will usually demo stuff for you anyway. :thumbsup:

Don't get the ipod dock for it, the onkyo one.
Just get the official ipod one, of the cambridge audio one (£20 tops) and use a 3.5mm to 2xRCA to connect it to the CD input as I have done.
#36
Tempting. I'm looking forward to hearing HD surround.

I bought these speakers and can recommend them. It was a bit of a spur of the moment purchaseafter I bought the amp so didnt shop around too much. Richer Sounds had some clearance Onkyo speakers but couldnt locate them when I called so I bought these instead.

It has Component also so connect your 360 via Component and Toslink, giving you the extra HDMI for whatever

Then remember though that you must run component leads as well as a hdmi lead from the av receiver to the tv :thumbsup:
#40
Thanks, but the 360 doesn't do 1080p over component unfortunately! :(

Also, I'm confused by how these things work it seems - I thought I could just plug everything in (360, Sky HD, Media PC and PS3) via HDMI, and one HDMI into the TV, and *everything* would just work fine, audio and video? Either audio through the amp or via HDMI pass through
