Can anyone help as Ive totally confused myself. Current setup is a TH42PE50B which has Sky on scart 3, a vcr/dvd combo on scart 1 which is connected to a hi-fi with pro-logic for the surround sound and a dvd on component and also connected to the hi-fi. Ive decided to get a Yamaha CDR-HD1500 and was going to connect this to the hi-fi also. I then thought that as we only ever play cds I could get rid of the hi-fi and use an av amp, probably a Yamaha RXV 657 or DSP-AX757SE for the surround. The question is - would the av amp act as an amp for the cd player, is it horrendous to wire and simply would this work?
