By THe lookjs of things the LX-83 is being shifted at such a low price £1300 to make way for the new SC-LX85. I will only be running 5:1 at the mo but through 3K worth of speakers so things like 11.2 dont really interest me. But is there going to be £700 worth of advantages to hold out for the Pioneer LX85 over the LX83 ??

I hear initial reports from across the water are praising the new digital amplification. The current ICE amplification is excellent, but the new DirectFET seems to be even better, as Pioneer stated a long time ago. With that and the awesome iControl AV2 app, I think it's going to be hard to resist the 85! I'll certainly be changing my 83 to an 85 when they become available.

We received our SC-LX85 yesterday. Pioneer anticipates it going on sale in the early part of October.

As it stands, we're hoping it'll be First Tested in the Awards 2011 issue (on sale 21st October). Of course, in the topsy-turvy, rock'n'roll-lite world of publishing things can change, but that's the plan just now.

Simon have you also recieved the BDP lx55 as well ? It would be great to have a review of this along with the 85.

The 75 and 85 were delayed by a month, so will be October as mentioned - we were told the LX55 would be a month or so later, but that was a good few months ago, so may be up for revision.
