For Denon X8500H owners, it seems the 8K board is out. New model will have 8K build-in, calling it X8500HA

Not sure what is the upgrade price for MY, anyone has the price, do advise smile.gif

US price is 600 bucks
This is the board information

yup correct.. but my wondering point is:
x8500h board is to upgrade 4k to 8k to ensure that x8500 throne remains
so the problem here is if the x8500ha board possesses the same flaw like 6700h or 4700h that require another external adapter to fix?

Need some advise here on AVR. My current Onkyo TX-NR646 just went dead with no sound and thinking of getting a replacement unit.
My budget is just around rm4k-5k max, which will be the best AVR that I should consider at this price point?
I have basically narrow down to Yamaha RX-V6A, Denon AVR-X2700H & Marantz SR5015. The most affordable one is definitely the Yamaha.
I only need 7.2 channels since I'm having 5.1 speakers setup with bi-amp for the front. I'm also looking at the one giving better quality for 2 channel stereo music since I don't have a stereo amp.

Any suggestion on these 3 models, are these the best at this price? Any other models should be considered?
