Just bought it!

Would have preferred black, but that's another £50 to put towards a set of Tannoy V speakers.

Great deal, Was reviewing several AV receivers last night and this one was the favourite. Best price I found for this was £330. Now at £280, I can't say no. Ordered!

This is serious competition to my £440 onkyo 608. Shame I never got to test the 667.

Have some heat! Awesome price.

All the reviews I've read put this up with the Onkyo 608. I decided on this one over the Onkyos due to reports I'd read regarding problems with the Onkyo's OSD signficantly effecting picture quality. I'd decided to buy at £329 so it dropping further was a bonus.

Purchased the 667 as i already have a yamaha 356 (i think) and have had no issues with it, and well impressed by the sound and excellent reliability. I'll stick with Yamaha.
Now that HDMI's are on all my devices thought i would upgrade. Time to ebay the old one - it lasted 4 years +. Cheers for the advice!

oh and just to let you all know that quidco tracked at £28. This happened pretty much straight away. Waiting for a delivery date now.

Ordered today too - me prefer titanium to black, as I'm upgrading from a Harman Kardon, whose trademark AV colour scheme is.... silver and black, just like this little fella.

Total bargain, a good £70 cheaper than anywhere else, and with cashback too - only available until 3 Jan, so get it while you can (unless everything must be black for you !)

I considered buying this but I decided to wait. Why you may ask?

- I can live with the brushed silver front but I think the painted silver top and sides looks horrible which will be visible on my AV rack.

- Best Buy have yet to prove themselves with customer service. I know there has been a few teething issues because they are new in the UK but I'm seeing a lot of unhappy customers reports online.

- Cashback is not guaranteed. As far as I know, Best Buy has not actually paid out cashback to anyone yet because the site is so new. If the cashback doesnt track or isnt paid 2 or 3 months down the line then the price would be £280, and for that price I would pay the extra £20 and buy the black version from Richer Sounds or another highly regarded retailer.

- The price keeps going lower! I expect to see most retailers hit £300 or less for the black model in the new year. I can wait another few weeks as I wont be using it straight away.

Don't under-estimate the VAT hike to 20% in January - you may have to wait a little longer for £300 methinks...

Fair comment on Quidco though - I still think even at £285 it's a Billy Bargain, from a proven manufacturer with a strong AV record

I paid £500 for the black with 5 year warranty back in august!! Awesome price

Buy the onkyo

I've got the 765, if this is anywhere near as good it's a great bit of kit and well worth £300

ordered. cheers

This is more comparable to the 608. With the 608 still selling for around £400, This one kicks it into touch.

Buy the onkyo



Why because you did. Onkyo 5and 6 series still have issues with the hdmi board as many owners will testify. I've witnessed the 608 fail to pick up the hdmi from a pc graphics card many times. Bit of a palaver.
Onkyo? Oh No
Yamaha? Aah Yes.

Out of stock now.

I see him now, He probably means no harm but he needs to remain calm when he sees someone leaving a store with an onkyo under their arm.

The Onkyo 608 is a very good amp, i woud get the RXV667 over the Onkyo 508 but not over the 608.

Richersounds have the RXV67 in black for £299.95, it is still a steal at this price...

You forgot digital cameras (_;)

Hot and back in stock how do you get a deal unexpired?

Currently showing out of stock, I too am gutted

It was probably the one coming back into stock from another hduk'er who mentioned on the richersounds v667 he had cancelled his bb order as he went with the black version for £289 with a VIP voucher. In and out of stock in seconds I'd guess lol

Anyone had theirs shipped out yet?
