I have been mulling over the components for a system upgrade for about 9 months now but have been struggling to convince myself its the right time. For most of that time I was planning a system round 720p + all current sound formats but came to the conclusion that, if I wanted another "5 year" system, 1080p needed to be included. Sat at the core of that system is the amp. 1080p switching is just starting arrive but the HD sound formats are still not catered for natively in anything I have seen. I have three potential strategies: 1) Buy something mid-range with all current gizmos like a Denon 4306 and accept the fact that if I want to keep pace with new technology I will have to trade it for a "4308" in a few years 2) Spend more on an amp with more upgrade potential like an A1XV which has a better amplification section and has at least a chance of hardware upgrades from Denon 3) Separate the processor from the amplification to give more flexibility in upgrading the processor without paying again for the amp section (Arcam AV9/P7) Which way would you go? I am a little concerned that if I go the big amp route I am going to have to spend more on speakers than I intended too to get the benefit and handle the power. I presume my current KHT2005 Eggs (and others in their class) would be overwhelmed?
