This is a really good deal i think.
i was looking for one of these for a while but held back from the £250 that play.com wanted.
All of a sudden they have dropped bigtime.
i understand this may not be perfect for hardcore users because its not built to the same standard as some of the more expensive makes and models but this is great for the average user.
Also includes a nice ipod docking station that i like the sound of. £163.97 inc delivery seems very good to me so i ordered one, i couldn't find cheaper elsewhere but if you can post the link.

With this do you get the HD Audio?

AFAIK it can output HD Audio if your blu-ray can process the sound itself and you can output PCM from the player but it can't process HD Audio itself.

those previous links from NOVATECH were a ''SPECIAL'' one off price as i actually tried to get one at that price a year ago from novatech and i even phoned them up and asked if they will get anymore and they said ''Not at that price no'' but now it seems that the 170 mark is the ruff standard price now for these which is great.

Had one for the last 7 months as bought it when Novatech had it on offer. Brill bit of kit and the amp is huge. Have it hooked up to my PC and a Samsung Blu Ray player and it all sounds amazing.

Just seen you can price match and used this link (below). Didn't want to order from the price matched website as i have no idea what they're like.

I have this too, bought with Play at £220 a while back.

Awesome bit of kit considering the price of AV Rec on their own!
#16
Yeah looking around loads of places are selling them around the £170 mark but still a good deal.
#17
Looks a very nice unit plenty of connections on the amp
#18
i too got one from novatech, for £160. brilliant for the price. sure, the snobs out there will go on about buying more expensive gear, blah blah blah, but most people this is a very good set. i have a 42" plasma, sky hd, ps3, xbox360 and wii hooked up to this and its been perfect.

the ipod dock is also very handy, although it doesnt seem to work with my iphone 4, ipod touch.

I too bought this using the Novatech deal and it sounds great but there are some niggles.

1. It expects HDMI one to be the DVD / Blu Ray player and HDMI two to be the Cable / Sky feed. The amp always defaults to HDMI one, even though the Blu Ray player is the device that's turned on the least. It means to have to have the amp control handy to change the channel to HDMI two so we can get the feed from our cable box. It's annoying!

2. There are 4 HDMI feeds in and one out. Can I get all 4 HDMI in feeds working? Nope, max of three. I've tried to plug 4 HDMI devices into the amp, i.e. Blu Ray, V+, Xbox 360 & Acer Revo PC.
But I can only select access three of the HDMI inputs, so I can either see the 360 or the Revo but I can't have them both on and be able to switch between them. The remote for the C560s is frustrating as it doesn't allow you to press a button for HDMI 1, 2, 3 etc

I can press the DB/DVD button for the Blu Ray in HDMI 1
The SAT button for the V+ in HDMI 2
The AUX button for the PC connected to HDMI 4

But I cannot access anything plugged into HDMI 3 ... WHY?!

Even despite these niggles, for this price it's a bargain and I wouldn't change mine unless I won the lottery ... or it broke! Tron:Legacy is a dire movie but the playing this MKV via the HW-C560S onto my 46in Panny Plasma not only looks stunning but the Daft Punk soundtrack is sounds (not allowed to swear) amazing.

Yes, they MAY get more stock at a later date

has anyone got theirs from crescent yet btw?
#31
Not yet
#32
well my order got canceled saying out of stock when i was the first to order when it said 10 in stock so if you guys get yours there something very wrong with that company. out of stock everywhere else now since i posted the deal so cant even get one cheep. kinda shot myslef in the foot posting the deal when everyone else got a cheep price and im left without one.
#33
Funny that i contactd them today asking when my system was being delivered and i got a sorry the item is out of stock so we are refunding your money,
So i have sent a stinking letter back as there was 6 in stock when i ordered, and they only notified me about this when i asked them about the order!!
Obviously selling something they never had to get people to look at there site me thinks.
#34
i think they did have them i think they just never updated there stock. i also so annoyed with them. i called 30 times with them never answering the phone. i left a message in the end and they got back to me. still no reply to emails tho. thing what annoys me most is i could have used one of the other companies that were selling at very similar price only a couple quid more. but since i posted the deal it gave everyone the heads up to order them and they went out of stock everywhere thats at a good price. im never posting a deal again untill the item is at my door.
#35
I ordered one of these, haven't heard anything from crescent yet, so I dropped them an email this morning. After reading your comments I'm not expecting anything though. Another one goes on my "Companies to never use again" list.
#36
Thing is if they had them and i took the last one like i did why then 30 minutes later did they show 6 in stock again!! So someone was updating the system because i to was showing other people where to get them from at the same price just wondered if anyone actually got any.
#37
i got an email finally back today explaining what the problem was.

Thank you for your email. I would like to apologise for the delay in getting back to you. Unfortunately our purchasing team have advised me that our suppliers provided us with an incorrect feed, they failed to notify us before you placed your order this item was out of stock. On the 26th April you were refunded for the full amount, here is the refund number which will appear on your statement: *******************. I would again like to apologise for the inconvenience caused.
#38
I got an email back saying my "order is being processed". But think this is their dumb response to my status request without even looking. Don't have much hope.
#39
::sigh:: I finally emailed them today because I had not heard anything since I place the order, and they said it was out of stock and they're refunding. What took so long for them to realize that??
