I've noticed some retailers offering a £400 trade-in allowance for your old receiver against Arcam AVR400. Is this a national offer by Arcam?

If only Pioneer would so the same, I would trade my Lx83 for the LX85! I should start a petition Smile

The AVR400 was impressive with music when i heard it!

You should get a good £800-900 for an 83 in good condition with it's box and accessories.

Indeed if you only want £400 I would imagine you will have no problem finding a deal!

It looks like it's a bit a pressure from Pioneer and Arcam is trying to compete with them!  

Would y'all still buy a Pioneer LX-75? over an Arcam 400?

Depends on what you want out of your system. Pioneer will be far superior for movies & Arcam will be better for music. Of course, it depends on which speakers you've got as well.
