plus £29.90 delivery, and not in stock. Don't forget quidco too, probably 4% as it's classed as 'home appliance'.

Walk away

Onkyo in partnership with Loughboro Guy. Has he got shares in this stuff?

Mine's on back order since the 4th, been told by CS in stock from the 20th Nov, fingers crossed.

thanks for that... im ordering one myself but the site is under maintenance so will try again later... theres 6% quidco and £7 code on this aswell

Never beleive their in stock dates, I waited over 2 months for something when they said it was in stock, before I cancelled in the end, they kept saying another 10 days

Original Poster

website is working now... to get £7 off u need something worth 1p lol... i added 2 optical cables (1 for xbox 360 and 1 for sky hd)

pixmania.co.uk/uk/…tml

i ordered this from pixmania on the 6th nov (when it was advertised as being IN STOCK on the website). Waited 3 day to be told its actually out of stock now, and its expected to be back in stock on the 13th nov. That has been and gone.

Now its supposed to be the 22nd. I have no faith they will ever get it back in stock.

I personally am looking at alternatives now.

Done the same last week, Much better than pixmania, plus you get money back off the warranty if you dont need it, and youve got somewhere to go if it doesnt work!

doesnt always work though, i tried price matching as did someone else off avforums @ Richer sounds and they just laughed it off.

They ring pixmania directly as when they say its 'in stock' on their site, it doesnt mean jack.

This is actually a very good deal. The Onkyo TX-SR308 receiver bundled here with the speaker is very well received and regarded as the best value for entry level AV receiver its class. Just search in google for TX-SR308.

The receiver alone costs £199 in many places.

Problem with Pixmania is, they are based in France, hence the deliver charge.

Where does it say its the sr308? I'm looking at getting this myself. Cant decide whether to replace my sony STR-DB 940 with one of these............................................. you know................................... as Onkyo is a completely unknown brand >.< LOL

Actually my bad
techdigest.tv/cgi…=20

HT-S3305 uses HT-R308. It's very similar to TX-SR308 except for one thing:
R308 has a speaker wire configuration for subwoofer while TX-SR308 has a RCA port.

Onkyo maybe relatively unknown in the UK but it is quite famous overseas.

I was personally aiming for SR308 before I saw this. But I am worried that R308 won't support DSD for SACD.

Comparing the amplifier used in this bundle with the well received SR-308, there is virtually no difference except connections and minor features

Spend £50 more and get a know brand like a sony!!!!!!! COLD!

Onkyo? Never erd of em

thats why you should get sony !!!

anyway wouldnt touch Pixmania with their deals

Walk away, go for an established make. My Alba would blow this out of the water.

I still think the joke is funny!

Is there any Sony's for this sorta price?

Yep - so the user booklet may be French as may the power lead (if you're lucky they will include an adaptor). If you're really unlucky if the unit arrives dead, you have to return it to France......

Still looks a good deal though - just take the above into account.
Edited by: "gari189" 29th Nov 2010

6% quidco as well but pixmania are shocking but still in business

best to get RS to price match. This deal is good if you're not looking to upgrade in the future, as the receiver is only good for passive subs, so you'd need a new receiver if you wanted to upgrade the speakers with an active sub.

Note to self never, never buy anything from Pixmania

Haven't bought anything from pixmania in 4 years and still wont. Had a bad experience back then when trying to return a faulty item that was still within the years warranty. Apparently, because they are based in france they dont have the same consumer laws that we do.

I hpoe it goes well for anyone who takes the risk and purchases from pixmania. Perhaps they have cleaned themselves up by now?

still the shittest joke in the world gets used in these threads.

/sigh

You're better off connecting all your HDMI-equipped devices directly to the receiver, then use that to change inputs.

How on earth is this a hot deal if it's not in stock, and hasn't been for most of this month.

It has to come with a mains adapter.
But then, this is Pixmainiac ... Dixons by the French. Not sure it can get much worse !

By rights this should have been expired as it's not in stock, and reading the thread hasn't been in stock for nearly a month.

did my research and u wont get 5.1 with only hdmi passthrough... u need to connect the xbox 360 and skyhd by optical to get proper 5.1 surround sound

I don't care how it's worded, 'In stock within 28 days' is OOS...

If this deal was posted when it was in stock, then changed to that, it would be expired. So this should be expired, simples.
