Yes...As per my other post on the complete AV & speaker package deal - The Monitor Audio Bronze AV 5.1 is 5* rated What HiFi and is also recommended by them as a great combination with the Sony AV....

Peter tyson have an brand new showroom with an excellent testing room too if you are from the North, listen before you buy!
1 available, open box at this price.....
I was looking to get this to upgrade my Sony str dh820, went and just bought the Denon x2400 though.
Having bought some Acoustic Energy 7000 Speakers and a Marantz 1608 Amp I can say the service with PT was exceptional.

Must say the Marantz 1608 is a steal on PT at the moment at £419.10. Normal price is £599!!!

"Packing in Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, HEOS, 4K Upscaling plus much more, into a half-height casing, the Marantz NR1608 is an AVR tardis."

If you think Marantz is not up there with Sony (and in most regards better when it comes to specialist and high end gear) then you need to do some background reading because Marantz is high end Audio and AV stuff.

I'm puzzled by the lack of knowledge on this site sometimes
Sony is getting slagged off in a number of forums for discontinuing support of units in their ios / Android app, it would seem that anything over three years old is no longer supported and this is an ongoing issue

They have been bought and sold over the years to various organizations which includes Philips. Think currently they are owned by the same group that also owns Denon.

The audiophiles seem to love their gear although most of that is out of my budget
This is an open box. Brand new ones are still £465, same price as other retailers.

Yeah, both Denon and marantz are owned by D&M group.
Nobody's mentioned the 'O' word so far! Very impressed, although close thing with some of the earlier comments.
Just noticed it's an open box item! They have an open box Sony at sevenoaks for £399.

Thanks for the heads up! Just nabbed it at SevenOaks - at that price, its a bargain for full warranty, albeit 1 year compared to 2 at PT

NP, I got the same AVR 4 months ago from them for £399 and was quite pleased
Cool. Just hope it’s as described and has all the accessories. Been after one of these for ages so this is a result. All I need now is the Optoma hd142x and I’m done spending!

Received today... Was clearly a returned item (stickers on box) and not had a chance to test as yet but seems in perfect condition and all accessories so am expecting no issues. Wonder if the ‘slowness’ put previous buyer off.... Anyone had any experience of the slow UI on these?
