    Quite a simple question: what's the best I can get for about £250?

    I'm only interested in home cinema (although occasionally play games and music). I intend to buy a 6.1 speaker setup to go with it.

    I don't mind buying something slightly out-of-date to get a bargain (at the moment I'm considering getting last year's Yamaha RXV640RDS, available for £250, which was recommended to me by Nick_UK).

    Any thoughts/advice would be appreciated!

    I would recommend a Sony STRDB795 or STRDB790. You should be able to get a good deal on the 790 if you hunt around. Easy to use. Well made. Good remote. Good audio in stereo as well as multi channel. :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the suggestions guys but I wanted to get 7.1 sound so I've decided to pay a little more and get a Yamaha DSPAX750SE. Cheers! :)
