O.K. so I am looking to get my first A/V amp and I have read around the forum and it seems that a low end Denon/Marantz/Sony maybe the place to start. I listen to plenty of movies but still through the TV so I want to upgrade to an A/V amp to improve things. However I am not yet in a position to have any rear speakers due to the layout of my lounge so is it worth going down the A/V route? Can you still get improved sound using just 2 channel using an amp? I have some floorstanding Mission 702 speakers to go with my Sony AMP and CD player so could I use these as the front speakers? and will they sound o.k. when used with say for example the Sony DB790? Any advice greatly appreciated.
