As you may recall my amp blew, soon after purchase. Thanks to AV Sales it was classed as DOA and I received a replacement within a week. The replacement is in and initial impressions are very good. One point of note is that in the home (as opposed to demo) setting, music sounds much better than I anticipated. I've not tried an SACD yet, but ordinary CD is impressing me. The remote is still too dull, it's a stupid design, but the learning ability and macros make up for it. I'm considering turning an unused iPaq 3850 into a remote, will update on that when I've tried it. Thanks to all here for advice.
