Vantage HD-8000S review


Two tuners, hardware blind search and internal HDD support herald this revision of a recent hi-def favourite

Classy appearance ; Great AV quality ; PVR-upgradable ; Media playback

Some bugs need resolving ; Timer functions could be better ; Ethernet port under-used

With some minor bugs still needing ironing out, this receiver is not perfect, but definitely has more than enough great features to appeal
