    Hi there,

    Just getting into the world of home cinema and a mate has sold me a set of B&W 602s/601s and a cc6 center speaker. I'm now looking to get an Amp/Receiver for them.

    What would people recommend in the 300 - 400 price range? I was thinking about the Yamaha RXV630RDS but believe its being replaced by the 640 soon. Should I hold off or see if I can pick up a 630 cheaper as it's discontinued.

    What other amps in this price range would people recommend?

    I will be mainly using it for watching DVDs etc, but also some music listening and need it to be fairly powerful as it's going in a large living room.

    Many thanks,

    Keith

    I used to have a Marantz SR5200 and it worked well with the 602 / LCR60 / 601 setup I had ... so you recomend you look at the SR5300.
