    having recently sold most of me gear (all bar dvd player,telly,an center speaker)
    i was initially saving for the yammy AX1 amp
    but i hate whatching things in Dolby surround
    so having read the latest what hi-fi an HCC
    im thinking of getting the following:-

    sony strdb 940
    yammy 596 (£260 @ richer sounds)
    yammy A2 (been offred to me for £399)
    or Denon AVR3801 (good bye ax1 if i get this)

    im thinking of getting mission 733e for fronts and 77ds for rears.

    out of thm i have only heard the yammy A2 which i liked very much .i am on a tight budget and the other half dont like the price tag of the AX1 .i am wondering if i should dump the idea of getting an EX-ES setup and go for the cheap an cheerfull option ,any advice whould be appreciated

    thank you

    PS any of u lot know any good websites for home cinema fans with reviews good advice etc?

    probably out of that list - ditch the 596 as it only has spring clip terminals for the rears and centre.

    Drop the Sony, as the A2 is now at the same price and the Yam is better.

    People seem to have good things to say about the Denon - DTS-ES dicrete, etc - so between the Yam and it its probably down to price or features... so over to you!

    ps. what centre, etc, do you have?

    The Denon will do all current forms of comercially available surround, bar MLP (DVD-A).
    So yes it will do DD-EX.

    If you are going to replace your CC350 I have a willing home waiting.
