Alpha Audio also retailing at this price. Value for money?
Alpha Audio put 2 ads... both shown as black... Why not 1 black 1 Silver one?

I thought of buying NR686
but after knowing NR696, I pause a little while.

Are there any differences between both of them and should I buy 686 instead rather then waiting for 696 ... thanks

686 is now considerably much affordable than Denon which offers close capabilities n functions but different by power.
696 newest improvement goes to the motherboards (lesser ICs), n removable power cord.

Saw TN 696 @ 1299 from one of the shop I can't recall.
Only differences are, it has DTS virtual X and 10w extra.
Would you go for TN686 or the newer TN 696?

The 686 is $699 (in Lazada/Alpha Audio).
You can get 830 for about $1k.

$1299 for a 696 a bit on high side, isn't it?

Like that, then all Jap AVR brands will become one.

Competitors will be those angmo brands only.
