With Onkyo/Integra cheapskating by dropping Audyssey, seems like Qualifi have seen the opportunity to turn up the local gouge factor for Denon to max.

No idea...

No price at the HKG AV show, but Singapore has a AV show in November, I suspect that Denon and Marantz will be able to showcase their new AV amps there.

Brad's prediction........Rob will buy this.  I know I am keen to see these as an upgrade from my 3808A.  I could then swap the 3808A for my old Onkyo 1992 model TXSV70 Pro

$3599?

Woah.... time to check the prices overseas... when they are out... no words in Asia yet..

  

 

Not surprised at that price.  Seems to be in line with what the higher end Denons always get released at.  If you want the latest you always have to pay.  I just paid about $3450 USD for a titanium exhaust system for a motorcycle.

 

Wait a year and the price will come down.  What was the price of the 4520 when first released ?  You can get it new now for $2500 if you offer the right store hard cash.

Actually you can get it for $2469 and put it on your Credit Card :)

I think this would be a step backwards from the 4520, except for atmos. I'd like to see the specs on the 7200 though

And guess what.   If you add it to your basket it will offer shipping to Australia for $100.   So $2100USD or $2254 AUD even if you add import duty you are still saving $1000 if that RRP from Qualifi eventuates (and that's just on the US RRP, and not even the US Street price).   But of course I would never get a US unit due to the power requirement, even if using a stepdown transformer.   Though it would be nice to play with the unit 2 months before the Australian stock arrives :)

Gee Spero....where did you see that.  I must not be looking hard enough.  Have to wait to see the 7200 now anyway. :)

Apollo HiFi have got the X5200W listed for $2199.   I know this has to be a pricing error but I'm tempted to order it at that price-
