    hi there all. Tomorrow I am going to buy a new amp - mainly for movies but listening to music is also important.

    I was going to get the yamaha 630 for about £300 but I can also buy the marantz 5300 for £350.

    Does anyone know if the marantz can compete with the yamaha when it comes to surround sound in movies?

    thanks for your advice

    yes, didn't sound like you had much luck with that amp.

    While the yammy is £50 cheaper its a matter of getting one £50 cheaper.

    I'll probably take a chance and go with the 5300 and I'll post a review in a few days when I get it.

    thanks

    Was this the DSP or RXV version ? I can't find any reference to a Yamaha 630 on Richersounds website.

    Mark.

    hi there, its the non receiver version and it isn't on there website - I rang and they had 4 (now 3) of em. I rang the Kingston store.

    The amp looks great - haven't really tried it for sound yet though :)

    bye for now
