Look at it here.
That's funny. I was just thinking too myself, "I wonder why the H/K 8000 flagship hasn't shown up yet?".
The thing that gets me about this receiver is that it has EX and ES capability but only 5 channels of amplification for a flagship receiver.
I do agree. Having amplification for all channels would be better.
But are you sure the 4800 wasn't the flagship? I thought for certain that it came out a while before the 5800...
I hope they make it available before the next CES. Their street date has been slipping steadily.
Dan, the 4800 did come out just before the 5800 but the 5800 was known to be coming as their flagship receiver with every format (at the time) known to man.
Still, the 8000 does look impressive.
Actually, now that I think of it, there was talk shortly after the 8000 was announced that they were thinking about making to 8000 models. One with 5 channels of amplification and one with 7.
Maybe that was just a rumour.
According to OneCall the AVR-8000 is due Dec. 1st! And for just over $2000 including shipping....it's very tempting.
I think there was a thread here about why h/k did not add the aditional amps. h/k replied in an email that the additional amps would require a very large unit that would render the unit inpractical. Rather than skimp on the amps to make them all fit, they decided to omit them, and let the buyer add an additional outboard amp. Makes sense to me the 8000 is a big unit with just the five channels.
Is there any updated information on the specifications for the unit. The website only has a picture.
Onecall has more in depth specs here
A little scattered in my opinion, but it covers most of the bases fairly well for a product that isn't out yet.
