    Hey ppl,

    My current set up is a

    yamaha dsp 630 receiver
    Denon tuner
    Arcam 72 cdplayer
    Sony j980 minidisc player

    eltax 350 speakers.

    No although I have an av amp I dont really use it for surround sound and spend most of my time listening to music.

    I know my speakers are bad but they are gonna be upgraded at another time. So the upgrade now is the amp.

    I have been look at the cyrus 8vs but I want another couple of models to demo it against so that I can make sure I get the best amp for my money.

    So waht do you guys suggest?

    Not got one but sound great, try a Sugden a21a also.

    The cyrus is great. I have a cyrus 8, very good amp and is a lovely object. The vs is slightly better. You will find most of these suggestions will out-perform your av amp easily but its really down to taste. Enjoy choosing!
