Hey anyone got one of these yet?

In amaerica it is getting very good feedback with the XT32 and dual core video processing.

Let me know as I have one on pre-order and hopefully should be here this week.

Will be selling my SC-LX72 so hopefully should be a better all rounder.



Well my pre-order in silver has arrived at frank harvey hi-fi they are shipping out today.

So if all goes well, should have a little taster for you guys over the weekend.

There is a review of this in the states if you type in joerod in google.

Seems like one of the best av amps in a long time, and the specs compare to high end at mid budget prices.

I think there's one on site, and it's definitely on the reviews 'to do' list; I should be getting my hands on another sample next week, and will be aiming to do a hands-on blog sometime shortly after that.



Well got my 818 hooked up and ran XT32.

I got to say when it told me to turn my subwoofer down to 75db, on my SVS ultra, I thought... :?

But I followed the instructions, and I got to say the bass feels a little lacking, but yet, more controlled and intigrated, so it will take a bit of getting used to, but I love my bass, so I may adjust it just a tad to 80ish db and run it a little hot.

But for the sound.. :dance:

This blows my old SC-LX72 out of the water, it seems more dynamic, fluid and detailed, and I am over the moon.

As far as the build, its amazing, heavy heavy heavy, and love the silver finish.

The picture is great as well with the dual core processing.

I have not even touched the surfface of what this thing can do, the only thing I cant figure out is how to log into my spotify free account, the username and password is correct, but still keeps saying it cant log me in, not sure if I need to buy a premium account.

All in all, very impressed is not the word, I am amazed and all this, XT32, Dual Core Video processing ect.. for less than 1000.00, I challenge you to beat that.
