    It's a bit hard.. because of the price and how fast things move.. The older models had a lot of cooling fins - hence the weight.. these days, the fans take heat off, literally.. and here, a few kilos might come from those reinforced plate, and the capacitance is a lot lower than before...

    I found a site in Japanese which confirms that the 8500 has the same capacitance as the 7200, but has to drive more channels: https://translate.google.com.sg/translate?sl=ja&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fweekly.ascii.jp%2Felem%2F000%2F000%2F409%2F409760%2Findex-2.html&edit-text=

    Start watching around 10:00 for the AVC 8500 information. 27kg! Thick panels ! Copper plates around the power section. Griffin Lite 32 bit DSP chips! 32 bit up-conversion: http://www.analog.com/en/products/landing-pages/001/adsp-sc58x-adsp-2158x-series.html Around the 25:00 it can consume 2800W to power all 13 channels ...

    SRP is S$6k... you might be able to knock a few hundred off... but I don't have the indicative price yet..

    No radio though... the units are starting to arrive in Asia-Pac ... should I pick one up ... hmm..

    I am waiting for 4k discs to hit the shelves at the local Big W
  12. Actually it's not a bad thing to run off an AC brick.. You pay a lot for 'isolation of the power supply' from more 'audiophile' products
