    I was looking for one the other day. I checked the branch in Newcastle, a couple in London, and the Watford one and none of them had it in stock.

    Marantz SR4300??


    Actually honestly I'm not sure. THe SR4300 (the replacement for the 4200) is around £270 I think. Around that place is also the Denon 1603 and 1803 and Yamaha 620 and it's replacement the 630.

    All have DD, all except the 620 has PL II, and all (iirc) do some form of DTS-ES along with DD-EX - the SR4300 does DTS-ES discret (not sure about the Denons though)

    Having just written that I remember that you need pre-outs so that precludes the 2 Denons anyway (the 1803 doesn't appear to have pre-outs that the 1802 had).

    My vote would be for the SR4300, unless you can track down at SR4200 or alternativly the SR5200 is going for a good price at RS (if they have any of those)

    thx. I should have mentioned the pre-outs. Truth is that I have the 1602 with which I am presently content but for its lack of pre-outs. I've spotted the Marantz 4300 for £260 and the Yamaha DSP AX 630 for £270. I was considering the the Denon 1803 but ....

    thx again

    Who, me? Well, no bids and two days to go, so it'll no doubt be here when the auction expires. Oh, no DPL II though. A kick ass budget amp though...
