Where are you located? As the HTS3500 been launched? If you have a choice, then always go with the latest technology. The 3500 has replaced the 3400. I am also looking for the 3500 but was not sure if it has already been launched in the market.

It's not a good price.
Why do you say it it not a good price? Many dealers in Bangalore & Delhi seem to be offering this price now.

I am also considering buying this, so let us know if there is better price available somewhere.

I have seen many people in this forum say that the HTS3500 is available though it does not seem to have been launched formally.

It's not a good price because the 3500 will replace it at that price soon and the 3400 will drop to 20-24k for clearance after 3500 stocks reach stores.

Unless the dealers are trying to sell the 3400's at marked price by not bringing in the 3500 (Which is probably whats happening)

Take a look online if you can find a souce.

Here is a review of 3500
Onkyo HT-S3500 Review - See our price! | HDTV Reviews Lab
Mainfeatures are
- 4 HDMI Inputs and 1 output with support for 3D and Audio Return Channel
- WRAT Amplifier Technology
- Direct Digital Connection of iPod/iPhone via Front USB Port
- Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio
- Easy Settings Change with On Screen Display via HDMI

WRAT was there in old onkyo amps and i guess this is an updated version of same technology. From pics i am not seeing any change in size of woofer. They could have give the usb option for video also. Size of rear speakers got reduced.

There is no USB port in the 3400 model?

Is it worth spending the extra bucks for 3500 ?

Satish from where in Hyderabad did you purchase? Any reason why you opted for 3500 or over 3400.

Also I understand that this model has speakers along with the A/V receiver.
I don't understand why would you need additional set of speakers?

Also from whatever I read about this model looks like it's not that great for audio!

Hi Andy, why i purchased 3500 is just because its a updated model, and it has USB post which i was waiting for, latest is always better than old :). features wise its very good receiver at this price bracket.

coming to audio is also great if you listen at 50 to 55 volume. original audio cds bit clear than MP3s.

i have read in one of onkyo threads that change of center speaker gives better sound for specially for audio listening. but i'm pretty much happy with my original set of speakers with 3500.

I watched few english movie dvds on 3500 sound is just awesome believe me.
