Hi All My faithful Arcam AVR300 of 7+ years is slowly dying and having had two previous repairs, I think retirement is looking inevitable. Before buying the Arcam I demod various other AV amps. The more lively Japanese amps of 7+ years ago such as those from Denon were completely different to listen to far more lively for films but lacking the lovely warm, mid-range rich sound of the Arcam, particularly when listening to stereo music. My speakers are as follows: Front: PMC TB2 Centre: PMC TB2C Rear: PMC DB1 I would also like to buy a CD & Blu-ray player, with SACD and DVD-audio being a bonus if possible. I was about to buy the Oppo BDP103 to make the most of the AVR300 (no HDMI) but if I am to replace the Arcam then I am open to alternatives. So I am hopeful that other ex Arcam or current PMC owners whose priority is music over movies (although I do enjoy a good lively film) can point me in the best direction with advice on what to demo as a replacement. My budget probably wont stretch to another Arcam, and with questionable reliability I am prepared to look elsewhere .sadly. The total budget of ~£1500 is not necessarily going to stretch to a true upgrade , but currently being considered are the following: Anthem MX300 with Oppo BDP103 I am happy to consider second-hand, but do want something that can get the best from all the HD formats otherwise I may as well get the Arcam repaired again Any ideas? Thank you.
