Quality going to be expensive.

Prefer Bush myself when it comes to AV. Heat for the price though.

Got the AV in my main room .

Imo this is a great price .

Don't why one would buy this expensive thing at home when u can't play it as loud as u would want to.
May be I need perspective...anyone?

It you want to play at the type of levels you'd see in the cinema, I expect this would struggle anyway - from what I can tell, it's rated at 100W with one channel driven, so unless it comes with very sensitive speakers it won't play all that loud before it starts distorting. Although, as you say, most people won't want to play that loud at home anyway.

As to why - people like having surround sound at home, and these little speakers can be relatively easy to place at home. That is a good price - you could easily pay that much for blu-ray player and amp, though you'd probably end up with a better amp if you did that. Not something I'd go for myself - but I don't think it's a daft thing to buy

Yamaha HTR-2064 (RXV-373)

Has anyone else noticed the RXV-373 bit?

The HTR-2064 is the equivalent to a YHT-196.
Either a mistake or theyre shipping the RXV-373 with this package.

I don't see any mention of the RXV-373 here petertyson.co.uk/ebu…ASw

I have this exact kit the speakers are fantastic for the price, sure they are not audiophile speakers but there surpass your standard home cinemas by a long way and i have turned the receiver to full volume and no distortion orther than items around the speaker vibrating lol, one problem i have though with the CEC and im sure this is SKY's fault but.....

If i turn my PS3 on it will change channel on the TV and the HDMI input changes auto on the receiver, but when i switch the PS3 off it doesnt switch back! it stays on the wrong input in the receiver, my harmony can solve this problem but it wont if you dont have one, i swear its because sky doesnt call through CEC. and sky will never support it until HDMI spec 2.0 they have said.

also for the comments about 4 HDMI INPUT's if your TV and devices support ARC and CEC then your TV inputs work just as good too with audio sent back through your ARC HDMI input.

its been pretty much mentioned, but here are some reasons you would have a 5.1 receiver.


Replace those crappy TV/LCD/Plasma Speakers.

Dolby Digital Audio vs Stereo from Your TV or a Soundbar.

Surround Sound /DTS HD/ DD5.1 HD that works very very well over digital signal.

Brilliant for gaming esp for multiplayer location finding.

Sound quality vs Loudness they are two different things.

Netflix, Lovefilm etc all use 5.1 as does Sky Movies and Skys HD channels.

Run multiple devices through one HDMI cable to the TV.

Control all your devices audio through one device.

many many more reasons.

Maybe they say that to not make you feel bad? Loud booming bass is felt as well as heard.

I prefer good quality at loud volumes
I've got a Yamaha AV and CD player seperate with missiom floor standing speakers. Was blasting it very loud last night and no distortion whatsoever. luckily I have a detached property so no worrying (or not as much ar least) about the neighbours. But back to the point; I reckon this would be epic and £239 is not a lot considering a decent TV costs around £400 except you [u] wont[u] be replacing this in 5 years time... it'll go on forever*.
(*not forever, but a very long time if you take care of it)

But in most cases (neighbours) I still prefer better quality to louder volumes. You would too

This is a point that many don't appreciate...

A correctly setup 5.1 system will dedicate the centre speaker to dialogue on true 5.1 audio sources....

Fantastic for those movies with lots of spoken dialogue.

Additionally a properly setup 5.1 system will also allow you to hear spoken parts of movies without scaring you out of your seat when a large explosion or something happens in the movie.

Looks a nice bit of kit.....forgive my ignorance,but will it play ordainary music cd's?

What would be better - this or an ONKYO AVX380 (I have an offer of a 3yr old second hand Onkyo for £150)

The Blu-ray player should.

Hot from me. Would love it for my HTPC but I simply can't justify it.

Ordered. First time with Peter Tyson.

Perfect for next gen gaming. Hot for active sub!

That might actually be a PS3 problem rather than Sky. I have a cheap HDMI switcher, and when the Xbox is turned on/off, it switches back to Virgin, but when the PS3 is turned off, it doesn't switch automatically.

How does this setup compare to an all in one home cinema system like the Samsung ht-f5500 ?

higgzy is correct I believe. The HTR-2064 is NOT the same spec as the RXV-373 (that's the HTR-3065) so there is a mistake in the listing. I know because I've got one.
Don't order this expecting to get a RXV-373 spec receiver without checking with the supplier first.

Not sure why. Chalk and cheese really. Bush (aka Alba) are simply not the same quality as Yamaha products.

Some people live in old flats with excellent sound insulation. Some live in detached houses. Some live in semi-detached houses with the living room on an outside wall rather than a shared wall with their neighbours.

Besides, as far as AV goes this isn't expensive. Many people buy £3000 AV receivers and a separate £5000+ speaker package - not everyone has neighbours to consider.

active sub?,that swings it for me,time to do some gooling,heat op.

ordered thanks again
