Further information:

Time for me to part ways with my tried and trusted Lexicon receiver. I’ve owned it since new (RRP $13k) and it has served as the heart of my media room for many years without fail. The build quality is exceptional and so are the built power amplifiers (7 x 140Wpc solid state) which can be used for bi-amping if you so choose. I have been using it latterly as such and the results are quite superb driving my Gryphon speakers. In its time, the RV-8 was regarded as the best receiver on the market, made by the same manufacturers as Mark Levinson. 

 

It has 8 channels, can operate three separate zones and can decode all the major formats including THX Surround and DTS 96/24. Its Logic7 can create 7.1-channel sound field from 2-channel sources for surround effect. It also includes a decent phono stage for high-output cartridges as well as a programmable AM/FM 40-preset tuner. The built-in DACs are of high quality and at 24-bit resolution with up to 96kHz sampling rates can stand up to a lot of more modern units and are probably superior to those found in today’s Blu-ray players. It’s downside is the lack of HDMI inputs but the digital audio inputs covers that as most would use direct video inputs into their HDTV anyway, unless you need to use video-switching. Digital audio inputs are treated carefully and processed via a two-phase phase lock loop circuit designed for low-jitter performance and high-jitter rejection of incoming signals, so sound quality is given prominence in the Lexicon and clearly its major strongpoint.

 

For a review, here is Michael Fremer’s take: https://www.soundandvision.com/content/lexicon-rv-8-av-receiver

 

I have the original boxes, manual and remote. It’s a beast in terms of weight (30kg) so prefer local pickup but happy to ship at buyer’s expense.

 

Message me if you require further info. I’m open to offers.

      Item Condition: used Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Sydney or Canberra State: NSW Payment Method: Cash on pickup Reason for selling: Surplus, downsizing and bass needs replaced by fewer 21" speakers Further information:
      Heavy duty 4" VC 18" driver with shorting ring.
       
      Reconed by me with genuine 18sound recone. Unfortunately for me their recone kit uses a black cone (not the stock original one) to my annoyance. Although T/S parameters are the same. 
       
      If you want a pair PM me. I have another identical speaker.

      Specks of paint on the cone due to accident from previous owner, see photo. Otherwise runs well.
       
      If you want a pair PM me, I have an identical driver (with pretty much the same cosmetic flaw)

      STUFF YOU NEED TO KNOW:

              Any title here gets a brand new inner and/or outer quality Blake sleeve as needed before shipping.

             I fully guarantee everything I offer  - if you don't like any item for whatever reason, return it at my expense for a full refund, no questions asked (verified 30 day+ active Forum members only thanks)..
             Original contents are stored inside the cover.
      I try to ship all records themselves outside the cover, so any postal damage is minimised.
             I use mostly s/hand pre-made cardboard mailers for all orders, and these virtually guarantee safe arrival of your record (they are also MUCH faster to pack).
             Combined postage to anywhere in Australia at cost (or close enough) and is EXTRA (ie. not included in prices). 
            ABSOLUTELY NO LOCAL PICKUPS - don't ask - it's not going to happen.
      Complain to me loudly if anything goes wrong (although it barely ever does) - and it'll be fixed, in your favour.
