    Hi anyone, I have the yamaha dsp ax1 amp, it still feels new to me but is a good few years old. i know there are more features on new amps and i could be missing out on them, so does anyone think its time to upgrade or will there not be much difference. Macky........

    what sort of budget are you looking at here? Does the ax1 have Dolby pro logic 2 or :dts: Neo:6?? If not those options are worth having for listening to the tv on or turning your music to multichannel. Also the newer amps will be better in stereo than the ax1 (if that interests you).

    If you dont plan to go to 6.1 or 7 speakers and your happy with your Ax1's sound then leave it a bit until the newer HD sound processing modes from Dolby and DTS come out and get intot he cheaper (non flagship) amps.:D
