    i've seen this eltax amp for a good price. only thing is, a mate said to not buy from QED as we found a bad review of them.
    anyway, in general are they too be trusted ?
    and what do you reckon of this amp?
    (im a uni student, gonna have this in my room in halls hooked up to some decent speakers)

    Seems like a good little amp for the money even though your left with no details of the specks on it.

    Hi rvd48
    New to these forums myself, but I too fancy the very same "Eltax AV250" amp.
    I am planning on using my existing speakers until I can afford some new ones, but need a relatively inexpensive amp to replace my integrated "Samsung" POS, which in hindsight was never right from the day I bought it years ago.

    I too would also appreciate any info regarding how good this amp actually is and whether "QED-UK" are OK to deal with.

    According ot the "Eltax" site, the basic specs of the amp are:
    =======================================
    Music Max power 5 x 50W + 1 x 100W
    Frequency range +/- 3 dB 10-30.000Hz
    Signal / noise ratio > 80dB
    Tuner Bands FM 87.5-108.0MHz, AM 522-1620KHz
    Tuner presets 20
    RDS Functions PS, PTY, TP
    Surround formats Dolby Digital, Dolby ProLogic II, DTS
    DSP effects 8
    Analoge audio inputs Aux1, Aux2, TV
    Digital audio inputs 1 Coaxial + 1 Optical
    Video inputs 4
    Antenna inputs AM, FM
    Speaker outputs 5.1 speaker output
    Subwoofer RCA line-out 1
    Mains voltage 220-240V / 50-60Hz
    Dimensions (HxWxD) 58 x 430 x 330 mm
    Weight 6.0 Kg
    Manual languages English, German, French, Spanish, Dutch, Danish
    Remote control Yes
    Batteries 2 x AAA Included
    Antennas FM & AM included
    =======================================

    More detailed specs can be found on the "Eltax" site.

    Spend a little more and get a better amp from a more established (reciever) manufacturer like Yamaha/sony/denon/pioneer etc.
