Afer the demise of my av receiver and the stubborness of my insurace company to give me anything aprroacing its value (£500 i will be receiving) I find myself on the lookout for a decent Av amp that is excellent with music as well. And somthing that I can add a stereo integrated amp to -at a later date when finances allow.( like an FMJ A32 or Azur 840A and use the av driving the centre & rear speakers. I have auditioned a 640R and was extremley impressed with the sound and its only £600. my seavenoakes dealer in oxford can get me an Arcam AVR 300 for £795. My source is an Arcam FMJ139 for dvd/cd playback & Accoustic energy 109 floorstanders. I dont care about hdmi switching as my Panasonic plasma is connected directly to the FMJ139 via a QED SR hdmi cable. I am unable to get a home demo of the arcam AVR300 so I would like anyone's thoughts on which av amp would be best for stereo & sacd playback?
