    Hi

    The new pioneer has hdmi switching 2 into 1 and many features for £430, prob cheaper online. Yamaha are prob best in that price bracket being the 750, 757se and 759 (new model). They all sound the same but have extra features. KEF's are usally paired with Denon amps but you get passed all the Denon features you'll never use, IMO the Yamahas and Pioneers are the better sounding of the three.
    And then of course Onkyo have a few new budget amps out shortly with should put the cat among the pidgoens!!

    Happy hunting

    CH

    ps. Ebay has many good amps on the cheap at the mo and some are BNIB!

    The new Sony has just come out at £400 - gets a 5* write up in What HiFi this month....might be worth a listen.
