Excellent deal, spent the last half an hour wondering how I could justify this to my better half.

Birthday, Xmas or Easter gift? When's fathers day!!!
#4
its meant to be just as good as the Denons that cost almost £200-300 more
#5
Why all the cold votes without any justification??

Can you find it cheaper or is Home Cinema just not your thing?

Onkyo TX-SR674E : 7.1 channel A/V Surround Receiver

Onkyo has announced a series of new A/V receivers, headed by the flagship TX-SR674E. Boasting 150 watts per channel, this 7.1 beauty will give you everything you want for your HD experience with HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) “Upconversion” as well as 2 HDMI inputs and 1 HDMI output, in addition to a full series of “classical” connections (see details below)."

Interesting Thread, this is a lot cheaper than the £500 it was last July.

Seems like a good deal for £300 in my opinion.

It got a What Home Cinema commendation for 2007 too.

Also great for all those people with HDTVs with only one HDTV input, as it has two HDMI inputs, and upconverts other inputs to the HDMI output too. You can have a single HDMI cable run to the TV, and put all your AV equipment out of site in the corner :)

chhers for this. just ordered.
#9
******...
bought one for what I thought was a cheap £398 on Wednesday!
:-(
Sounds good though, and has loads of configuration options, so I can definitely recommend it.
#10
I wish I could justify buying this. I have no more room for it. That's the problem living out of one room. Great deal though.
#11
Look forward to receiving mine!
#12
Great price - voted hot!
#13
now showing at 399.99 :-(

Have to stick with my sony sf1000 for now

You get a few people on here who vote cold because they don't need one or it's the wrong colour. Whether or not it's a HOTUKDEAL seems irrelevant. :roll:
#15
i voted cold coz its now sadly 399 :( if it were 299 it would definitely be a hot vote
#16
quick update on this one for people that have ordered it. Mine arrived today.

looks fab.

cheers again for the offer overlord
#17
I was looking at one of these at Xmas, just couldn't get the green light from misses @ £499 :-(

Now I should have mine over the weekend and I'm over the moon :thumbsup:
#18
I dont get it - how is/was this worth £300?
#19
Gary_rep look at the specs for it and see if you can find a similar quality model for 299.
#20
Available again @ £299.
#21
is this better or the yammaha 759? (also reduced and now about to be discontinued, as this model is)
#22
Looking at the specs on Avland it is a definate NO. No HDMI for a start, also no tuner but that's a personal bugbare (why have a digital, next 5 yrs amp that doesn't have a digital tuner?!) but it is iPod ready...!

Here's the spex. If you want to compare.
http://www.avland.co.uk/yamaha/dspax759/dspax759.htm

Very tempted by the Onkyo. Anyone who bought one got anything to say yet?
#23
The 674 is now discontinued according to SuperFi. Looks like it may have been going end of life which would explain the price.
#24
New model is the 605 but the 674e could hardly be called 'old'. It all depends on your hi-fi requirements.
#25
That was an excellent deal for the Onkyo, must of missed that one.

It processes audio over HDMI too (up to a maximum of 5.1 channels), which makes this is the cheapest amp to be able to do that.

The new 605 model will have Dolby TrueHD/DTS HD decoding for Bluray/HD-DVD, but are irrevlevant at the moment as all current gen HD players only process the next gen audio onboard, and do not output the signal to the amp via bitstream.
This will change eventually, but as its lossess sound, it will be interesting to be able to see how much of an improvement this will make.

If you can buy this amp for £299 go for it, I paid £399 for it from AV Land and can endorse their excellent service. I dont regret paying £399 for it as it's original price when it first came out was £499 and recieved very favourable reviews like this German one,

I bought this as well from av sales, now tryin to get some decet sub sats to go with it
#29
Just took your advice Jetski and ordered from AV.. It's the 2nd time i have ordered the 674 as I had one earlier in the week on order from SuperFi but had a mental "how can you justify" moment (£300 amp, £75ish cables, £400-600 new speakers,, HD TV!) Nothing really wrong with my current setup a Tosh. CRT with Nicam (Mission 737Rs in the front, TV acts as centre speaker/s and Eltax round the back) but I suspect ignorance is bliss.
Gonna have to keep the current speakers for the mo' but need some decent cables but need some decent cables without paying £29039 each. Anyone got any recommendations?

Nice one buelligan, £299 is a steal for the amp if your thinking of paying £29039 for speaker cables :giggle:

Oop, should have been £290.39 :oops: At least it felt like it. Just been down to Richer Sounds. £30 for an optical and £50 for a component. The DVD is (or will be) optop of the amp so only need 8" to be sure and the TV is above the DVD so only need 2'. Surprised drug dealers don't switch to selling cables on street corners. Profit margin must be huge :x

What cables you referring too? If its speaker cables look no further than the Van Damme blue concert grade 2.5mm.

Maplins were doing this on offer a while back @ £1.69 p/m but not sure if you can still get it there. Or alternativelythis is a very good cable for the price.
#33
If its optical cable your talking about, get the a well made cheap one from Ebay. I paid £4 for mine delivered.
Like HDMI, its a digital signal so doesn't need to be 'methane injected' rubbish, even though my £4 one is double shielded/polished fiber optics and gold plated if it makes you feel better.

For a component cable, I can recommend the Belkin Pure AV range. Very well made cables for the price.
PC world had a deal for ages on the 6ft Belkin, so you could get it for £7.49 if reserved for collection (normally £24.99), but I think they've put it back up now. You can pick up the 3ft for around £10 though on various sites.

Cables don't have to be expensive to be good, just don't buy overpriced Monster cables from the Curry's saturday boy rubbing his hands with glee for his commission.

Now that's a bit spooky. Litterally just finished purchasing a Van Damme component cable off eBay :w00t: Thanks for the advice guys. Just learned my Onkyo is turning up tomorrow, yeharr. Just got to figure out how to get to City Link the other side of Southampton as they will only deliver to your home address and surprise surprise I'm working

buelligan, once your happy with the amp and can aford it I would suggest you upgrade to at least a dedicated center speaker and subwoofer to make the most out of the amp ,using the tv as the center speaker is far from satisfactory IMO mate.
#37
So I've just found out (spent the last couple of hours setting it up). Forgot to add I've got an Aiwa powered Sub, not big but nor is the room.

Tad impressive so far and I haven't finished settting it up.
