AV Receiver with MP3 and PC connectivity

Hi there,

I'm looking for a receiver that will be able to play MP3s from my pc and sony MP3 player.

The system will primarily be used with my PS3, Xbox and Sky HD box, but when we have parties, I'd like to be able to connect something to it to play MP3s. Will most amps allow this? what's the simplest way to connect either a pc or mp3 player to it?

My budget for the receiver is £450. And will be teamed to Q Acoustics 2000 Cinema pack with 2050 free standing fronts.

Thanks,
Rob

Any amp and:

3.5mm Jack Plug to Phono Cable 1m Premium Only

From you mp3 player or pc to your amp.
If your amp has an optical or coaxial digital out you can get a cable for that from the same sight pretty cheap too.

Not sure but I think the QA speaker packages are usually a neutral sound, so should be able to be paired with any amp.
I'd recommend Yamaha, but then I'd be biased as I like the sound of yamaha's, then there's Denon, Onkyo....quite a choice for up to £450.

Thanks tris, that's much appreciated, I didn't realise it would be so simple, or cheap!! :)

I think that we'll usually have a laptop next to the AV amp, our Sky router isn't the strongest, so I don't rely on it's network being available 100% of the time.

Thanks,
