Excellent price.

Good price. Heat added. If it was the black version, I'd have had it!

I have one of these with some Boston Acoustics Soundware XS speakers and it sounds fantastic!

I have one of these with Monitor audio floorstanders and kef 1005.2 surrounds and sub. I am well happy. Plus the HDMI still works when on standby which is a must i think.

That definitely is a big plus point. I used to have the Onkyo TX-SR875 that didn't support it and I had to keep my display on for HDCP to work just to listen to Audio.

did the above mention Onkyo! lol

What's the best price for the black version?

pmsl laughing at the 'advanced feature' of an am/fm tuner!! advance from what?, stone tablets!

overall a decent bit of kit though.

Is this a better buy than ONKYO HT-S6305 which i have on back order at amazon at £349 with the speakers? if so how much would speakers cost me ontop?

nice one thanks for the heads up

awesome surround sound system! I cant believe I paid £500 for mine 5 months ago with 5 year warranty

model below is £199 at richer sounds at the moment (567) if you dont need as many features

please let us know is this inclusive of RS VIP membership £10 voucher. if not please provide the link showing this price.

please also say whats the best price the sell the black one. I heard the new ones will be there within another month or so.... so the price of current product line will be going down.

what would be the best price for Boston Acoustics Soundware XS 5.1 with rxv667 black

thanks a lot

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

how do i get a voucher i am vip but got nothing when i joined?

They appear to have just put it up by 30 quid.

Had one reserved yesterday and picked it up for £249.95. Just mention that you want to pay VIP price. The £10 voucher is not valid for this deal as it is a special promotion.

this or the Denon 1911 on offer at TJ Hughes ? sound quality wise, would this fare better than the yamaha 567 ?

Thanks, looking to upgrade my 13 yr old amp. This fits my budget perfectly

I thought the same but saw the 567 in titanium for £165, bought it and it looks fantastic and by that I mean it looks as good as the black if not better.

The titanium is not the same as the silver receivers you see around, it really does look good

picked mine up today as well, was intent on buying the boston acoustic xs but heard a demo in the shop and the tannoys actually sounded better as the front speaker sounded tinny on the boston, they were cheaper as well.

cool , let us know what they sound like at home , I am considering a second hand set of KEF's but may be going back to Richer Sounds , I did see some cool looking Sony's (5.1 and 7.1) BUT THE DEALS on these have gone ... just gotta be patient .

Picked mine up yesterday. Very nice bit of kit! Now to decide which ipod dock to get!! (_;)
