Hello Forum Firstly i'd like to say i am not adverising it on here, simply to get some input and reaction to my choice. After reviewing constantly over the net i decided to change my sony str-685 or something more advanced "well mind you it was an offer of a friend that made up my mind to sell, i had no problems with the 685 one bit." Anyway i went off to town looking for the right amp, then i came across it, being use to a 5.1 set-up and pro logic 2 surround, the 1803 was a mighty performer. This was back in January-2003 which would make the amp 8 months old now, since that time i have grown a longing for more power that led my too stumble apon my first power amp! This "Gemini x4"beast was a whopping 2X300w 4ohms going into my massive "eltax mill 500" 4way speakers it quite simply changed my perception for the apprecaition of music. Anyway to get to the point without writing a book, i now have another power amp of similar spec an "sst 600 s" Here comes the crunch have connected my power to the soundcard on my pc not the reciever because it has no pre-outs ahhh! the only way i can connect the p-amps is by either a y-splitter or the single source outputs, you can see my problem. I can split the connection but that would mean lossing voltage which would led to degraded sound so i am led to believe. Final Point first how much would somone suggest a good honest selling price, provided i dont find someone gullable, i was thinking £150-250. I want to change my reciever the the 2803 which i think is about £500. Main points for buying it is;- 1. DSP it uses the same one as its £3000 big brother. (did you know that the 1803 only has a 24-floating point dsp, i am not quite surewhat that means but i think the 2803 has a 32-bit floating point hammerhead shark?) 2. PRE-outs (also are these noisy ?) 3. Slightly more power 4. OSD 5. 7 chanellas including 7 ext-ins for my soundcard (whoo hoo, this means i can finally use my sound-card to its full abilities, i.e, cmss2 and take advantage of constantly updating dvd software.) 6. 100mhz video bandwidth, (does this make much difference using s-video?) I'll leave it at that thanks very much for reading, and thanks in advance to your feedback. Regards Adam C.
