This has been a difficult decision to let this go but I am sure that I will not be using it for atleast another 6-9 months. Further its unlikely that I will be using the AVR's full power when I shift to a smaller flat in a metro. Its a 140 watt RMS @ 8 Ohms 7.1 HDMI enabled receiver
Acquired from an reputed FM around two months ago thru a Wanted listing. The AVR is a truly high end one selling for around a lac during its period. Its fantastic both for movies and music and many rave reviews on the net. One and only downside is that it runs hot and needs to be ventilated well. You cannot place any component on the top.
It can decode DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD via HDMI and was one of the first to feature this capability. Its THX Ultra 2 certified and very few amps have got this certification. There are hundreds of reviews out there but for the lazy I am pasting the main specs from Onkyo's UK site.
The AVR is very heavy - 25 Kgs and will cost a decent money to ship. I leave it to the buyers to decide how to ship the same at his risk. But I assure you that I will take every care to pack it well and will prefer sending it with the wooden crate it came with. Its very safe and secure.
The landing cost of the AVR was close to 29K since the courier & crate cost itself was 4K. I am ready to take a hit of 2K on this price and offer the AVR for 27K plus shipping. For this money I am sure you will be hard pressed to find any AVRs with the brute power and features plus Onkyo's bomb proof build. Its really nice and if not sold at this price I may be tempted to retain it since I am selling off quite a few components anyway.
For those looking for a one stop solution of an excellent stereo & outstanding HT capability this AVR can be a very good option since it has Burr Brown Dacs and oodles of color free power. Ofcourse it needs good quality speakers to fully utilize its potential
