The Latest Purchase - Onkyo TX-NR818
So there I am, quite happy with my setup but notice the new line of Onkyo AV amps are coming out. The NR616 is on a good discount but there's not enough in it to make me want to give up the 8050.
Then Richer Sounds slap a 40% discount on the TX-NR818 and it gets my attention. Everything the 8050 has it's got and more. Terrific reviews as well, plus it gives me the means to bi-amp the DC4s and take this chance to get rid of my other stuff too. This'll hopefully pay off the cost of most of the 818 and probably signs off on my amp purchases for the foreseeable too. If this is as good as the reviews say it is, this is one special amp.
It arrives on Saturday morning and it's a fine looking beast! I'll post up my thoughts later.
