    Hi all, i'm contemplating entering the 5.1 world from 2.0 [i.e. a marantz amp with ms10i speakers] i want the surround sound thing but also need good quality to listen to audio. also need enough inputs for all of the following:
    pace sky box, sony dvd player, sony vcr, ps2, archos av440, sony tv [and i'm guessing i have to buy a little preamp or summink for my turntable to be connected to the system] i like the look of the denon AVR-1705 and that probably gives you an idea of overall budget. i was gonna just go down to richer sounds as i don't want to spend more than 500>600 quid in total...but thought i'd take advantage of the wealth of experience on this here site first...any ideas how to get the best for my money? love this site - its full of all sorts of useful info...
    :lease:

    Listen to some A/V amps in your price range and decide if you can settle for them as your stereo source as well. If the answer is yes, then no problems just get the A/V amp. Try Marantz they sound good in stereo.

    Failing that if you get a A/V amp with pre-outs can put them into your stereo amp but then need to ensure you stick the stereo amp on the right volume and input when listening to a movie.

    Try the A/V amps and if you can get one that does all you want then go for it. Most of hte new ones have a heck of a lot of inputs.

    Re turntable yeah most don't have turntable inputs, but NAD do a decent little pre that's cheap.
