    I would like to have the new options of the 225, so I am curious if anyone has heard of a date for the release of the newer version of the 520?

    I'd be real curious too... [​IMG]
    I have seen a blurb in S&V that the 225 has Logic 7 for 5.1 DD/DTS sources. (Anyone know for sure? I haven't perused the 225 manual on H/K's site yet.)
    So I would assume that the 525 would have this, and DD EX too.
    The 520 was very highly rated on audioreview.com .
    I did email H/K about availability and the L7 question, so I'll post back here if I get an answer...
    There is a HT show coming up end of Sept where hopefully a bunch of stuff from a bunch of companies will be announced. [​IMG]

    Any word on a replacement for the 8000? I'm hoping to get one of those as a pre/pro as soon as its successor is released.

    The detailed specs, quick set guide (a real smart thing that H/K is starting to do for set up specific to it's x25 series) and FAQ all do not address the 225's ability to process L7 over 5.1 sources.
    The 225 is limited to 5.1... a great second or apartment unit.
    Nothing leaked on the 525 or 8000's successor yet [​IMG]
