A/V Recievers

I’m planning on upgrading my current A/V receiver since it doesn’t meet my needs and currently there are a lot of options out there. A few features which are important to me at this point is the capability to upscale to 1080p, at least 3 HDMI inputs, 7.1 Channel, multizone, and the latest audio/video processing. Currently there are a lot of choices out there and they choices just keep increasing. Now HDMI 1.3a has become standardized but each one of these machines has a little extras which are different then other machines, but they all are fully featured.

Onkyo TX-SR875

HDMI: 4in/1out

Price: 480 KD

Sony STR-DA5300ES


HDMI: 6in/1out

Price: 480 KD

Yamaha RX-V3800


HDMI: 5in/2out

Price: To Be Released in November

    let us know what u decide on because i need to get one as well, i guess denon will have a new line up as well with all 1.3 hdmi`s
    so far from what i heard the sony is impresive
    btw even if thier out the wekala in kuwait they wont get them as soon as the usa, uk, or dubai so where ur getting it from?

  2. lfc-Q8: I’m getting these from the UK, and the best features are shared between them. Right now I’m leaning towards the Onkyo, the Sony looks good but I like Onkyo’s features. The Yamaha packs a punch as well. Getting it from the UK means you can get it without the taxes shipped to Kuwait, and shipping would be 20-30 KD which isn’t too bad.

    Z i dont know but if u want lets get 2 at the same time as i need one :) maybe we can save on the shipping that way :) what do u think?

  4. What are the choices available currently in Kuwait ?

  5. lfc-q8

    none as far as i know

  6. lfc-Q8: when I do think of getting one I will get in contact with you! I have no issues sharing the shipping cost!

    G-Funk: None right now! Kuwait want to move all the stock before they get new items!

  7. lfc-q8

    Z i have my final short list
    onkyo tx-sr875
    yamaha rx-v1800
    denon avr-3808
    i think denon are in stock at alyosifi now dont know about the others … did u make up ur mind yet?

  8. lfc-q8: I would go either with the Onkyo or the Denon! The yamaha is good, but I prefer the other two because of the processors they have!
