Pointless comment, what's personal opinion got to do with a specific deal?
#4
One things for sure it looks nicer also I think the other amp posted only had 2 HDMI inputs
#5
Well put ,most of these donkeyo pushers have never witnessed the joy of a full Bravia setup capped off with a decent Sony amp.
#6
Good price. Heat added. Onkyo is better IMHO.

How is that a pointless comment....

The Onkyo does 7.2, this does 7.1

I'm sure there are more differences, and very easy for someone to find out....

If you're referring to the Onkyo TX-SR607 it has 5 inputs on the back and 1 on the front, so 6 HDMI inputs in all.

Nice amp for the Sony fanboys though.

It's all about whether this is a good deal for a Sony STRDN 1000, nothing more nothing less.

Click on the ' Click here for full features table on this product' for more details of each one.

Sevenoaks and a few others sell the Onkyo for £299.99. Richersounds will also price match.

It's been at this price for over 2 weeks with stock nationally, it's up-conversion is poor and it needs to be on even for pass through. You can do so much better for only 10% more eg the Onkyo 607. I understand the fundamental point being is it a good deal for this product but in this case the product is not as well spec'd as the products it's up against and people need to understand that before buying.

Not exactly ..... if the usual price for this was for example £2000 and it was by far the best deal at £300 , isn't it still rather poo if you can get a better spec amp from a comparable manufacturer that does everything that this does at either the same cost or cheaper ??

So , its not only about whether its a good price for this model , but also whether this model should even be considered in the first place.
If your theory of finding the cheapest price model on everything and anything that is available then this site would be flooded with anything but hot deals !! :thumbsup:

I agree with with AuctionSniper. Our votes on a deal should be about whether the product listed is at the best price available. You should also take into account whether the product is reasonably widely available at the price listed.

Of course, I understand that there may be other products of like quality with better specifications at the same or better price. Also the product listed may be poor quality. But it is unfair on the OP to vote cold only for these reasons. In these circumstances it is better not to vote and share with us your experience, knowledge etc. of the product. This was people can make judgements whether they want to purchase the product listed or an alternative.

I believe in this way we can remain a harmonious forum and also we would be helping our fellow forumites by providing good quality advice.

"HotUKDeals.com was founded in August 2004 as a place for consumers to freely share deal tips, voucher codes and other consumer information. The purpose of the site is to escape from the marketing messages and ads that surround us and get genuine advice from other people about hot deals. "

So, it's actually a consumer forum for advice and information :whistling:

I love the advice from other members on this website ESPECIALLY when they recommend alternatives to something I was considering buying. Of course, the Sony FanBoys aren't interested in alternatives!

Still voting HOT BTW but I would probably have the Onkyo myself.

Don't get me wrong, this Sony model is good, I even considered the 800 version of this model, but spec wise I felt the Onkyo gave more value for money.

I have a lot of Sony consumer products, but in this case the Onkyo won me over.
#20
Dood price, voted hot. However, as others have said unless you must have a Sony, take a look at Onkyo. I have one of their AMPs and it's very impressive.

It also not hotpricesuk - it may be the best price for this product, but it's not much of a deal if the Onkyo - a better amp imo - can be purchased for the same price.

Why can't OPs on this site just accept that if people think that their deals are hot they will vote hot - there really is no point in getting so worked up about it!
#22
Can I ask a (probably) dumb question please - that i really don't know the answer too??
I have a 40" Sony LCD TV, with the speakers turned 'off', as the Audio goes 'out' via the Sony 5.1 Pro Logic DVD/CD/Tuner player connected to the 'TV' via scarts......
I don't know what its total ampage or wattage is, but it can be fairly loud if neede.... My question is simply, what is the difference in (say) purchasing this how I have the TV set up anyway?
So basically all the normal 'TV@ shows come out 'via' the 5.1 Sony DVD Player on the TV Function, and the DVDs play in theire own super surround quality when they are put on. You dont often notice the (say) Dolby Stereo on TV unless a film is on though.....

I just wondered if any of you techies may know - as I dont.

Thanks anyway.

If I've decided I want an XYZ Turbo anything I might look on here to see if it's been listed at a bargain price, not to look at an alternative, & see that it's allegedly the best thing since lime juice. I can guarantee that if someone lists the Yo-yo TX-SR607 tomorrow there will be as many opinionated posts that the Slony STRDN1000 is far better!

Yes, but this isn't a price check site is it? It's a site for 'hot deals'.

I'm sure you've been looking at the other deals on Hot UK, but I thought I would list this just in case you missed the recent deals for the Onkyo TX-SR607, along with the comments posted within it....

The first two comments were not cold voters, just people mentioning that the Onkyo might be a better alternative. As it happens, I agree. I'm currently in the market for an AV Receiver, and from my research..including reviews by leading home cinema sites, the Onkyo is considered a better amp. As it's currently available for the same price as this, I can see nothing wrong with mentioning it. No one's saying the Sony is a bad deal, but If I was reading this thread, I'd be grateful for the heads-up on the Onkyo.

£299 is a good deal for this amp, and it looks very nice, so I wouldn't vote cold. However, given a choice of the two, I'd go for the Onkyo as it's a better AV Receiver..:thumbsup:

I don't understand what you mean by this post....

I'm not saying this is a bad deal, nor am I saying Sony products are bad. I actually have two Sony Bravia TV's, 40X2000 & 40W5710. However, as others have also said the Onkyo has a better spec and is available for the same price.

I also done this research recently. I almost went with the cheaper 800 series version of this Sony. However after reading reviews and comparing specs, I went with the Onkyo. All I thought I would do was offer some advise on alternatives, however theres no pleasing some.
#29
The Sony 800 was the one that started me off on my search for a new system! Initially I was looking to pair it with the Jamo speaker package. After some digging, I discovered that the Sony (and indeed the Onkyo) were not ideally suited to the Jamos, so I started looking at Yamahas.

Now of course, my budget has increased, and I'm looking at the Q Acoustics 1010i!..if I can find stock ;-)

I paired my Onkyo 607 with a set of Tannoy SFX 5.1's. Richer sounds did also suggest the slightly more expensive Jamo's, however reading reviews etc, a lot of people suggested that the Tannoys matched with the Onkyo better than the Jamos's

I think you're right..I came to that conclusion too. I prefer the look of the Jamos though. So much so, I considered buying a Yamaha instead of a Sony or Onkyo ;-)

I've just picked up this STRDN1000 for £259.95 from Richer Sounds without any haggling at all.
I was after two other Sony models (Cheaper - I had a low budget) and they had neither in stock so immediately offered this to me at said price.
I too have been looking for several days at Amps and after stumbling across a large post over on AVForums about how BAD Onkyo's are decided against one when I had all but made my mind up to get one.
The main point of the AVForums posts was that RS seem to try and force you to take an Onkyo saying how better they are. Lots of people had done that - got it home - decided it was pants and went back to swap for a Sony.
A Marketing Bod from RS even post's over their, saying how dismayed he is at the reports of bad service, but he won't comment on people's questions about how much more commission the staff get for selling Onkyo.

Anyway - for a tad under £260 I'm convinced I've got a bargain - the front is minimalistic which keeps her indoors happy with it and yet it still does everything need.
#36
and what about the views and reviews praising the Onkyo SR607...
#37
I've always found RS to be good - when I went in for a reciver I already knew what I wanted and they didnt force me to take anything I didnt want!

Anyway, surely no shop forces customers to buy things they dont want! What woul.d they do, lock the doors and hold you at gunpoint? lol. Maybe these people just need to learn to say 'no thanks' when they dont want something rather than buying something they dont want and whinging about it afterwards!
