Ok im considering getting my first av amp but i don't really know what one to go for?

I have a ps3 and a samsung hd860 upscaling dvd player that uses hdmi so i def need 2 hdmi inputs. and i want to be able to get the best audio out of them (Dolby true hd or whatever the ps3 supports) I can only afford up to £500 prefrebly less.

So whats your suggestions for what i should get? or tell me what i should be looking for in an amp

ive seen this one mentioned on here before
http://www.avland.co.uk/onkyo/txsr674/txsr674.htm
and this
http://www.creative-audio.co.uk/DEN_2307.htm

are they any good?

also any suggestions for what speakers to go for when ive decided would be welcome.

thanks
and sorry for another one of 'what amp threads' but i couldnt see any similar to my needs.

Any idea how the Deno would stack up against the Sony Str-Da3200/5200?

2307 is a great amp but i did audition both with KEF2005's and had the onkyo been the price it is now i would have gone with it

Just out of interest, how did the Keff 2005.2s sound? am in the market for smallish (aka wife friendly) surround speakers - ones that hopefully still sound decent enough.

2005 sound great - use them for music too and although they aren't going to have the presence of a larger speaker they do a very good job

Sorry for late reply, the JVC amp has 2 hmdi ins and 1 out. I have the denon 2807 and will not lie its a better amp but it also cost alot more! the jvc was a good amp and the streaming music was a big plus and it also upconverted to hmdi which is a must these days. Also the size of it was nice as the denon 2807 is huge compared to it. here was a review for it:
