    Saw the HK AVR-8000 at the Fremont Fry's yesterday for $2500.00. Has anyone else seen or heard this unit yet?

    I believe it's HK's flagship, no? Serious stuff I'd bet!

    Nick,

    I did get a chance to listen to the AVR8000 at Fry's last weekend and it sounds great. It's THX certified(a bit pricey & overated IMO), pure clean sound is all I heard. With a combination of different speakers. $2499 for a sticker price, A little too expensive for me though. For you HK lovers the AVR 8000 might be one for you to look at.

    Anyone looking at this piece may want to head over to Sound Distributors. They have it for $1750 shipped (UPS ground). I am not 100% sure if they are authorized dealers or not but I have seen a few of members on this forum say they are happy with them. I would like to upgrade my receiver sometime late in the year and the 8000 is on the list. So anyone else that has gotten to hear it please add in your comments. Thanks!
