    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.

    I fear you will find this Ipaq's CIR is short ranged - 3m at best.
    Flog it and buy a Dell X3 Axim instead, it's discounted now and goes 7 metres!
    I'm very happy with it.
    Total Remote and PDAWIN both werk well on it.
    I hated the 3805 remote!
    Just my 2 eurocents...

    Fair point, but I've ordered an extender from ultramote or whatever it is.

    I'll try that, if it doesn't work the x3 is an option I am considering.
