    wow, just looking at this unit makes me horny.

    and the backside makes me go wild, all gold plated terminals and plugs.

    and the feature list is awesome.

    i wouldnt exchange this for any other receiver, this is da bomb!

    if only i had 2 or 3 grand when it arrives in norway.

    what is ur thoughts about this receiver?

    I have not seen anything officail as of yet, but while paging through the 2001 S&V Buyer's Guide, I noticed an AVR 7500. It is close to the same as the 8000 without THX Ultra certification. The last email I received from H/K said there were no plans to release anything between the 520 and the 8000, but I am waiting on a reply on what I read in the Buyer's Guide. If this unit does exist and will be released in the future, I will be saving all of my lunch money for that unit. [​IMG]
    As for test results on the 8000, I don't expect to see too many in the near future because it is not planned for release until sometime in December (according to the H/K website).
