My existing AV amp (a Yamaha A592 I think - I'm at work not at home) does have a dedicated subwoofer channel and this works fine in the Home Cinema environment ... I particularly like the added bass I get on my many music related DVD's and when I come to listen to a CD I find the lack of bass a real pain as the sub does not work when listening to CD music ... My question is - Are their any AV amps that can be configured (or just do it) that use the sub channel when listening to non 5.1 stuff like CD's ? I have a limited budget to change amps (or rather I will have when I broach the subject with "she who must be obeyed" !!!) So dont start talking about one that will cost a grand ...
