Hi all, Having set my sights on a 505XDE (with HDMI) I have recently auditioned the Pioneer 868 coupled with a AX5Ai - initially with the Kef KHT 5005s, but also with the Kef Q series (which I naturally preferred). However, being English, I'm interested in Arcam AVR300/DV79 as an alternative. I'm not too concerned about the extra £500 or so, and wondered what I'll gain/lose by going with Arcam for the DVD/Receiver. There are a couple of other points... I plan on using Kef Q series with a Rel Storm 5. I'd love to have 7.1, but am happy to consider other layouts. I'd also consider adding another amp (I'm not sure why I need it, but I've read on a few posts here about adding an additional power amp for stereo?). I'd like great reproduction for both movies and music. Other sources include Sky+ and a DAB tuner, but these will be used less than the DVD/DVD-A/CDs. Hope you can help! Paul.
