7.1 channel Blu Ray Receiver - does it have a Blue Ray built in or just Blue Ray in the name for no reason?

No Blu-Ray built in I'm afraid.

It's a amp that can handle 7.1. Seeing as Blu-ray is the only thing that will give you 7.1 encoded audio that's why blu-ray is in the title.

Not easy to find reviews on for some reason.

Picked this up from play.com
An AV receiver for the HD age must be able to amplify digital source signals containing a massive amount of information without degrading them, and produce sounds that match the HD images. In addition to reproducing sounds, however, it is more important than ever that the AV receiver have sufficient AV selector capabilities for outputting the input images free of degradation. The ease with which the user can control its advanced performance is also a performance benchmark. The SA-XR700 satisfies all of these needs. The SA-XR700 receives in their original form the 7.1-channel digital audio signals sent by HDMI cable from the DMP-BD10, digitally amplifies them without degradation, and generates more than enough power to cleanly drive the speakers.

The unit's advanced audio features include triple amp drive, which allows up to three amps to drive each of two front speaker channels. Exclusive to Panasonic, this drive system makes optimal use of the receiver's multiple amps to provide a superior sound even from a two-channel audio source. The SA-XR700 doesn't stop there. It also excels at receiving the 1080p full-HD video signals sent by HDMI cable from the DMP-BD10, and outputting them in their original digital form, free of degradation, over a second HDMI cable to the TV. The SA-XR700 adds convenient operation too. HDAVI Control lets you operate all system components at the same time by pressing one button on the remote control. And Auto Speaker Setup makes it extremely easy to make the optimal speaker settings. Combining superb audio and video performance with easy operation, the SA-XR700 is the perfect building block for creating a home cinema system that will satisfy even the serious audio enthusiast..

Seems overkill to me but then I've got an Onkyo I'm happy with. Would be interested to know If it lives up to the hype.

Except for HD DVD and DVD Audio.

This came last in the home cinema choice group test a while back.

If you have £300 to spend on an amp like this then check out the Yamaha AX763 or the Sony DG820 instead. Just as it has £400 off the price doesn't make it a good buy.

I planning on getting a new tv, blu-ray player and surround sound set in the new year. Is it worth investing in an amp as well. Only other thing I have is a xbox 360.

Review here:

http://www.techradar.com/reviews/audio-visual/hi-fi-and-audio/receivers/panasonic-sa-xr700-280951/specification

Decent looking amp (not as big and dominating as a normal amp) but review seems to indicate it doesnt excel with blockbuster movies and it doesnt seem to support a number of the HD audio specs.

If only the Onkyo 606 was a little smaller! And £100 quid cheaper! ;)

Cheers
