Can the iPod touch be connected via the USB without loss in sound quality? I am curious to know what to expect in terms of music qualityPlanning on replacing my aging Cambridge A1 Mk3 amp. Thanks

You might need to find out if an iPod touch can be connected at all via USB. Only works with FAT16 & FAT32 devices & doesn't support encryption. Anyway the DAC in the iPod is probably equal or better to that in the amp so you're probably better connecting via a good quality analogue cable.

Any alternatives that are better value below £200?

Go to http://www.thomann.de and have a look on there, must be the largest music store in Europe, flat rate shipping on everything in stock and because we're in the EU for now there's no extra charges on top. I've used them many times. The exchange rate isn't as favourable at the moment, anyway it's worth a look on there. If I was rich they'd be out of stock of everything :)

The 3.5mm audio out on the express can be used with an analogue or digital optical cable. The sound quality is great provided you have a good quality source file. The express has a very good DAC.
No no no
You don't connect your iPod to the airport express.
The express connects to your wifi or ethernet, and then streams your music from your iTunes library on your mac or PC.
That way you get the full quality file - rather than a compressed version that you might have on your iPod in order to carry more music.

This a great amp - I've always had Yamaha amps.You do know that you can add Apple Airplay to any amp by getting an Apple Airport Express (they're only about £20 for a used one)

Thanks. I didn't realise they could be bought for £20! I just wasn't sure whether to expect a drop in sound quality when connecting the Airport Express to my hifi amplifier and then my iPod to the Airport Express via the USB. I already have a cable (3.5mm jack and 2 x RCA plugs) plugged into my hifi for my iPod, but the sound quality is not great vs. my CD player. Thanks

Hi all. I'm considering this AV receiver as a replacement to my old Cambridge A1 mk3 amplifier, because of it's USB connectivity, and Apple AirPlay facility. Has anyone tried this AV receiver as a stereo? I'm wondering if an AV receiver can also be used as a hi-fi at this price point. In order to purchase a dedicated stereo amplifier with these features appears to be considerably more expensive......Thanks

Cold for the sarcasm and the fact that Denon are better receivers for the price and Tannoy are better speakers.
Seriously, hot+cold system isnt meant to be used like that and unless your alternatives are the same price or cheaper than what has been posted your point is well..... pointless.
If it means just one person thinks twice then it is not pointless. Also I knew someone would say what you said. But I expected better word and sentence structure.
Avoiding the questing and insulting me, well done.

You could have just left a comment instead of saying you voted cold because another item is better, it is to my knowledge how the site is supposed to work.
I was being facetious. Guess my point was it would have been hot for me if Denon and Tannoy equivalent. I should have abstained!
guys, is it worth forking out the extra 50 quid for this av receiver over say the 381? and so the speakers lend themselves to being part of. 5.1 setup in the future?

Good find Buzz. However I really think you should get out more. Yamaha is one of the oldest brands in the audio universe. Apart from audio equipment, they have been making world class musical instruments including concert - level pianos since the 19th century. I'm saving up to buy a 50 year old Yamaha piano and even then I won't have much change left from 2 grand. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamaha_Corporation?wprov=sfla1

I appreciate the comment mate. I think you've missed the ongoing HUKD joke, though :(

Bit of advice please guys. Is there a receiver that can switch off all speakers but 2 ceiling speakers that otherwise get used for Atmos? Was looking at Marantz SR7011 but was told it can't do that.

only way i could think to do that is if you ran extra wires to your ceiling speakers and wire them to B speaker inputs, this all depends on your current set-up ie are your front speakers bi-wire?


Not set anything up yet as house is getting refurbed. What is bi wire? I bought some mission m cube 5.1 speakers from ebay and a pair of Monitor Audio for the atmos.

No idea why this is cold. These are great guitars. The humbuckers tend to be far from the best but they are still useable. Nice action on the neck and quality components. It's a deal!
Very nice guitars, really nice to play. I got one when I first started playing many years ago. It is great for beginners, but it's still one of my favourites even now with a collection of 4 others to pick from.
It's a decent deal. The guitar is good and it's a branded amp - usually in a package the amp is a cheapy. Worth the extra over the £100 sets you get everywhere.

Question for the AV Gurus, I notice that many budget AVs do not have Upscaling as a feature. My sources include, Xbox One (new smaller version), Sky HD, and a variety of Apps built into the TV such as Netflix, iPlayer etc.

What will upscaling do for me? Will it only really help if viewing old DVD's? Should I spend the extra and get an AV with it?

The main thing AFAIK is that I need HDCP2.2


leave the scaling to your tv

Dont flame me as i'm total newb and no nothing bout audio though like tech so this may save me hours of reading!
Chrrently I have a Sony surround sound dvd system (Dav z something)
I have had this sometime however never use the dvd function.
If I was to buy this Amp. Would I be able to plug my existing 5.1 speakers into the back. My Sky Hd and PS4 and then get better sound quality?
Or
Have I missed the point and this is to control better bought seperate speakers?
The reason I ask is that I have already gone around the room with the speaker wires lifting the carpet and also havinv difficulties with a splitter getting sound from sky to surround.
So my thinking is I could unplug the main DVD unit. Plug everything into this ans then nkt have to keep getting uo swapping HDMI cables and optical cables?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
If you have the Sony DAV-Z260 unfortunately the simple answer is no.
I had one of those years ago and from memory the speakers have plugs on them which are specific to your receiver, you could remove the plugs but the speakers wouldn't be doing the Yam receiver any justice.
Also I think the Sub for your Sony receiver is a passive unit, you would therefore have to buy a new active sub.
Thanks Matt, it's exactly that model. Just looked behind, you're right, they are plugs.
I tried to get read into amps, but the whole ohms amps and matching speakers and amps together got a little confusing for now.
Just can't get Sky HD to work with splitter (though all other devices do)
What sound setup do you have now? Is it loads better?
I always liked the Sony I have, as I like to use the mic for auto setup and calabiration. Saw this as one too.
Not in such a rush at min and may also be best just to go to the professionals or Richer Sounds and buy amp and speakers together. Not heard better than my Sony surround (apart from cinema) so not missing out on much, but think I'm ready to treat myself to something new if it's worth the jump!?

I liked that old system, I replaced it with an LG Bluray all in one about 5 years ago (Maybe more) and it wasn't anywhere near as good as the Sony, the speakers were feather light compared to the Sony's and the Bass was non-existent!

I now have a Denon AV-RX2200W, Monitor Audio BX2's front and back, Monitor Audio Bronze centre and a BK Gemini II sub. It's not the final word in home AVR, it's more a mix of solid and good value items, but it is a massive step up both in terms of quality and price from your current setup.

If you're happy with the Sony producing audio that's acceptable and enjoyable to you and you don't want to spend £700+ on a new AVR & speakers then I would suggest sticking with what you have and trying to solve your HDMI issue.

I had a quick google and it looks like Sky HD boxes aren't too keen on passive splitter's, that might be your problem? If yours isn't powered you could try one of these - HDMI splitter

HDMI should produce better audio than optical, however if optical is the only option you could also use a splitter. Nothing fancy needed just a basic one like this - Optical Switch Just get the cheapest you can find, they're a very simple device.

If you do look to upgrade then definitely get yourself into the audio video shops in your area for a demo, they're normally very accommodating and understand that you're parting with a hefty wedge of cash.

Dont flame me as i'm total newb and no nothing bout audio though like tech so this may save me hours of reading!
Chrrently I have a Sony surround sound dvd system (Dav z something)
I have had this sometime however never use the dvd function.
If I was to buy this Amp. Would I be able to plug my existing 5.1 speakers into the back. My Sky Hd and PS4 and then get better sound quality?
Or
Have I missed the point and this is to control better bought seperate speakers?
The reason I ask is that I have already gone around the room with the speaker wires lifting the carpet and also havinv difficulties with a splitter getting sound from sky to surround.
So my thinking is I could unplug the main DVD unit. Plug everything into this ans then nkt have to keep getting uo swapping HDMI cables and optical cables?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
If you have the Sony DAV-Z260 unfortunately the simple answer is no.
I had one of those years ago and from memory the speakers have plugs on them which are specific to your receiver, you could remove the plugs but the speakers wouldn't be doing the Yam receiver any justice.
Also I think the Sub for your Sony receiver is a passive unit, you would therefore have to buy a new active sub.

Thanks Matt, it's exactly that model. Just looked behind, you're right, they are plugs.
I tried to get read into amps, but the whole ohms amps and matching speakers and amps together got a little confusing for now.
Just can't get Sky HD to work with splitter (though all other devices do)

What sound setup do you have now? Is it loads better?

I reckon this system has many eyes closely monitoring the price and of those are waiting for this to drop to sub £650. This is 6 months older from that £650 price point and possibly getting nearer to its replacement model the older it gets. I for one don't want to buy this at the higher price for it to inevitably drop more over the coming weeks
This is exactly what I've been after... except, it looks odd with a curved TV so I decided to go for a Samsung bar. I'm sure this is better though and not a bad price. Have some heat!
I been eyeing this up along with a few other options for the last few weeks as Mrs Loyal is not budging on allowing me to rig up the old set-up with multiple speakers around the lounge in our new house

This will most likely go cold as people will say it was cheaper at turn of the year but that was then and this is now so a decent price it is thus heat from the Chas

It would have to drop to well south of 600 quid for me to change my mind on what I have now decided on. Saying that seeing I've seen this has had two drops twice in a week now that may come sooner rather than later.

Some speaker recommendations at a reasonable cost compared to the cost of this unit?
For me the denon didn't sound as good when I tested it with my speaker set up so returned it for this, yes okay it has less hdmi Inputs but all are 4k hdcp 2.2 compatible, if you have more than 4 sources then I see why the denon wins but for me I only have 3 sources so why get extra ports I'm not going to use.

Musicast is brilliant too, denons app doesn't come close to the yamaha

What does the 681 have that's worth the extra money?
4K upscaling, slightly higher power output, 2 extra HDMI inputs, component input, phono input.

don't 4k tv's already upscale? don't think I need the other inputs

Any ideas of how this compares to the Denon avr-2300x? Both similar in price...
Richer Sounds just made my mind up for me; they dropped the price of the Denon AVRX2300W to £349. Trigger pulled.
Deal posted here.

Let us know what you think. Last 10 years I've had 5 AV receivers. 3x Yamaha, 1x Sony and 1 Onkyo. All similar spec throughout the years.

The Onkyo was beyond awful. Tinny sound, extremely poor interface and customisation. Not to mention an onslaught of bugs. The Sony was okay, but Yahama has always been the winner for me.

But this Denon has so many more features than 681, it simply must be considered. It also has great reviews. So let us know.

So happy to see 4K and HDR support is now entry level! Still holding out for second hand or open box stuff, but what excellent prices recently.
Great price for an HDR/HDCP 2.2 capable av unit, got the 481 and it sounds amazing!
Stupid question... I've got an old Samsung HT-C5900 system. would I be able to use this receiver in conjunction with my current speakers, then upgrade the speakers at a later date? Reason for wanting to upgrade for 4K compatibility.

This was £650 almost everywhere December until January and I was so tempted but held off then suddenly BAM £899 everywhere. I missed my chance previously but cannot bring myself to buy for anymore than £650 previous price. By the time this hits my sweet spot again possibly better will be on the market... hurry up and make this £650 again or I'll buy your successor :{

If you dont mind second hand, you can occasionally get a real bargain. I have seen several Samsung HW-F751 & H751's go for circa £150 since Christmas. Absolute steal.

At the moment I have 2 tower speakers (Celestion F3) but I replaced the speakers myself. Each box has a 5" speaker, 5" woofer. and a tweeter. Current setup only has good volume but not so good bass. In stereo mode? does it mean it won't have the 5.1 sound? I also have an old 10 band equaliser, but does not have any big effect.

An extra £70 gets you a AV Rec with Dolby Atmos. Much better sound quality.http://www.richersounds.com/product/av-receivers/onkyo/txsr444/onky-tx-nr444-blk
Much better sound quality? Yamaha receivers are pretty much as good as it gets if you listen to music, movies are pretty great as well, my Monitor Audio GX200 don't complain. Then, I'm using a more expensive yamaha amp, what I'm saying is, if you want a basic av amplifier, this is really great, the sound quality will be excellent, grab yourself some bookshelf speakers and you have a very nice everyday setup WAAAAAY better than a soundbar! (way louder too!) Atmos at this price point is pointless, I'm a little biased as I'm not a fan of the onkyos either, harsh sound and silly name. haha
There will be AV input and sound level knobs on the amp, I don't see a particular need to have more, the remote can do quite a bit. Changing to this amp to get an increase in Bass probably won't do what you are after, the system will have some setup options for speaker assignment and size, but what you probably need is a subwoofer. This will plug into the amp and give you the bass you require. There are EQ settings on the AMP as well, I find most of them useless, your mileage may vary, above all, it depends what speaker setup you currently have, crappy speakers and a £10,000 amp won't make them sound any better.
For music specifically, you'll want to set the amp to Stereo - regardless of your speaker setup, with a woofer, the sound will come out your left and right speakers and the bass part on your woofer. One thing to check in the menus of this amp is the "crossover frequency" this tells the amp at what sound frequency to send those signals to your woofer, instead of to your speakers. Always set your speakers to "small" when using a woofer.
Hope this helps. the TL:DR is if you want bass, get a subwoofer. Or tell me what speakers you currently have.

erm... I think I might have confused you..
.
All av amps have a "music mode" which is basically stereo - it's the best way to listen to MUSIC. So 2.0 or 2.1 if you have a subwoofer. You can of course use 5.1 anytime you wish. Just typically, 2.0 or 2.1 is best for music to most people. But yes if you want, you can use 5.1 - if you have enough speakers. I don't know about equalizers that much as I've never had use of one. If you have the celestion f3, they are floorstand speakers, get a subwoofer like this...

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bowers-Wilkins-B-W-ASW-500-Powered-Active-Home-Cinema-Subwoofer-Loudspeaker-/112345236258?hash=item1a284c4322:g:kUUAAOSwLEtYmKyc

with the amp - set it up and tell it you have a subwoofer (set your speakers to small remember) and you're golden.. plenty of bass. You seem like you should know more about this stuff than you do if you've been changing speakers in cabinets... if you want more information I can try and answer your questions but you are probably best going into richer sounds yourself and talking to the people there, in my experience they are always friendly and helpful.

Looked at this a few weeks ago but ended up going for the Marantz nr1506. I love it, did cost £70 quid more though from RS. Worth considering.

Asthically I don't see why these boxes have to be so big! The Marantz is nice and slim, also plays my flacs directly from my Logitech Media Server so I sold my squeezebox kit.

Hey Azza, thanks for the quick response!

I assumed the line about no leads being included was referring to speaker, SW cables etc. That's fine as I have some cables but need the SW cable and plugs.

Really appreciate the info and for posting the links too. Great when people take the time to share a good deal and knowledge.

Glad your enjoying the system, will be ordering it this week.

It doesn't come with any leads, but all you need is speaker cable + a sub cable. It was my first time wiring up speakers myself but its very easy. Had it all up and running within an hour.

What i bought:

25M Speaker Cable (great quality) - £23.40
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0194WM2VO

3M Sub Cable: £5.49
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00CWZ01O6

Fisual Easy Fix Banana Plugs 24K Gold Plated - 10 Pack - £11.99
https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00IE9HMH8

The banana plugs are not needed but make things easier

Thanks for posting this.

Did anyone buy this?

Are there any leads missing that you would expect to be in the package as the website says no leads included?
Saw it 699 an hour ago, looks like they just put price up
It's showing £769 for me, is there a code?

Found this while looking for an AV setup. Usual price of v581 £399 and speakers £299. So atleast a £100 saving over elsewhere. Hope it helps someone. Read More

i cant believe this is for sale in richer sound's i dont want the peasants enjoying my exculsive high end equipment at a cheaper price this is a utter travesty oO


Cracked me up.

It reminds me of Bill Burr (comedian) when he talks about people queuing for Black Friday deals:

"Why can't people accept they can't afford it at the regular price?"

Decent system for the money. I would say the Mission M-Cube system from Audiovisual Online is better @ £299 (use their AV Club for this price) with an AVR of choice - LINK

That's £449....

my only complaint was the Sub was chuffing at high volumes
Chuffing what, excellent, useless?
"Chuffing" is a description of port noise caused by turbulence at the port edge.

is the email still on offer


Just a heads up - I spotted this thread only yesterday and immediately joined the VIP club - called up my local Richer Sounds and they had one left in stock - long story short but they were willing to honour the VIP deal "even though its not showing on our systems" - no doubt probably because it's amost four months old! Went and picked it up this lunchtime - thanks to the OP!

what's the difference between the v581 and v681?
the v681 is £399.


581 doesn't upscale but it does pass through 4k so if you have 4k source I. E Netflix 4k and 4k TV you'll be fine
MiahAM2013
v681 has 4K upscaling, v581 doesn't - so I wouldn't consider buying this.
Only 3x HDMI inputs are 2.2 - HDCP on v681 vs 4x 2.2 HDMI ports on the v581. Maybe enough for you?
The wattage per speakers is greater - v681 is 90w vs v581 is 80w.
To me what's important -
1. 4K upscaling.
2. v2.2 HDCP on all HDMI ports.
3. High wattage per speakers - will come handy when having a house party! With the radio playing on the AV or using the Android TV.X)
4. HDR.
5. DTS-X.
6. ATMOS.
7. Great headphones High fidelity support - supporting various virtual hi-fi environments - to keep Misses happy and me enjoying my ManCave. oO
thanks!...gotta be the v681 then

Expired all the ones from amazon have been sold
says £299 now
Known issue with this model. The HDMI line in's go faulty due to a power issue. It works for a while but then fails so you have to use another line in which then goes faulty until you run out of line in's. Had to exchange lots in a very short period of time.

Unknown brand, get a Kawasaki
I got an Onkyo
Surprised youv'e not got a job with them
..more surprised that they have not issued a cease and desist for tarnishing a brand's reputation for no reason, other than ignorance! It is shameful and ironical, given that the town implied in the moniker is associated with one of the best universities around, but this guy could not even locate a local RS for some window shopping. LMFAO

Never fails to get a reaction out of people like you though
So what makes this a good deal? I know yamaha make good stuff but what makes this better than others of similar price? I need an amp/reciever for my TV and blu ray player but no idea how much I should spend tbh.

I had the model above this and sold it. The bass was all over the place and it was nearly a rumble (I used to have REL so annoyingly any sub I buy will compared with that).
Use this with a quite top-endish Yamaha PianoBlack Micro-system for TV audio. Set at the right level, it gives subtle bass enhancement without sounding artificial. I paid £69 at Richer Sounds.

This is a great sub. I have one in my bedroom but you wont be annoying any neighbors with it. You will need to spend a least 5x this much to annoy the neighbous and at least 10x to have them coming around knocking on your door.
My SVS PB13 Ultra in the lounge gets cranked up when ever my Neighbors want to get in to an Audio battle (_;)
Omg nice piece of KIT;
PB16-Ultra
The ultimate reference standard for bass, PB16-Ultra features a massive 16” Ultra driver with astonishing 8” edge wound voice coil, a stunningly powerful 1,500 watts continuous, 5,000+ watts peak power Sledge amplifier with fully discrete MOSFET output, triple 3.5” front-firing high-flow ports and an innovative subwoofer control and DSP smartphone app with custom presets for precision tuning.
Cris_kis1, what have you got running with this beast/surround set up or separates? Don't know why I'm asking can't justify big bucks grrrrrrrrr Guttediam :(

Yamaha RX-A3030 and Nakamichi AVP Power Amp powering MS Aviano 8 surround speaker package. Sounds Awesome 8)

The PB16 Ultra is new to the SVS range. This supersedes my powerhouse so might be time for an upgrade :{


Sounds like a nice bit of kit oO
I bought this last January for the same price from Richer Sounds, and it gives out a really good sound when coupled with 2 side speakers.
