Another newbie looking for advice


Standard Member
Hi all new to the forum so excuse my stupid questions, have to say the forum is fascinating reading

I’d like to get opinions advice good or bad on my query below

An amp which primarily be used for home cinema but also for music. But would like to run 8 ceiling speakers for music and be able to separate in to its own zone.

The other inputs to the amp will sky box and regular sky box, DVD player and a HTPC or something similar. Might swap out the DVD player for blue ray if the budget stretches

And lastly would like to control all from a single remote

My budget for the above is circa 4500 - 5000

Would like advise on the best solution or if it's possible with one amp ?

kind regards

Your need to be looking at the more expensive flagship models to give you the kind of multi room functionality you are after.

Some of the receivers you should be looking at are:

The Yamaha DSP-Z7

Sony STRDA5400ES or STRDA6400ES

Denon AVR4308A

or even the Arcam FMJ AVR600
