    Personally, no. However as a point of interest, the 100 is known to be sourced from overseas...China or somewhere else I don't know. Not sure about the 200 but my guess would be it is also. Doesn't mean you shouldn't buy it, but an informed consumer...and all that jazz [​IMG]

    I have the AVR100 and absolutely love it. I was all set to buy the Denon 3802 until I heard the two receivers head-to-head. The Arcam totally outshined the Denon with music, so much so to the point that I couldn't justify buying the Denon even with its better feature set (component switching, 7.1, DPL2).

    The only caveat is that in a large room, you might find the Arcam having trouble driving 4/6-ohm loads. I've just added a 3-channel amp for that reason, but in our old apartment the Arcam rocked.

    I don't know of any on-line dealers like onecall.com or audio advisor, because I suspect Arcam (like Sunfire and many other companies) supports brick & mortar dealers. However, if you're too far from a dealer (you can find one at ASL Group/Audiophile Systems in the US or Emerald Audio Resources in Canada), I'm sure some will do mail order.
