I am putting together a system to purchase in the new year, that consists of: Pioneer PDP-435XD freeview plasma Pioneer DV-868AVi-S DVD player I am looking for an Amp to go with this, and would like a Pioneer one to match. Knowing nothing about amps (in fact, whats the difference between an Amp and a Receiver?). But basically, I need a resonably decent Apm to go with this to handle all the audio. I dont have a huge budget for this (ive blown it all on the above!) but looking at about £300 - £500 for it. The only thing (I think) I would like it to have would be te iLink. Im guessing this is what connects the Amp to the DVD player, then the DVD player to the Plasma via HDMI? Or would the Amp connect directly to the plasma media box? I already have speakers, and as I live is a semi, I dont really need it that loud, or in fact as high quality as the DVD player.
