ok. It's time for me to deciede on what av reciever I'm gonna get. Since I live in Iceland I don't have as many choices as you folks in the UK or elsewhere. Also, electronics are way more expensive here than, say, in the rest of Europe because of shipping. PS: I don't have the opion of demoing these two... Ok the choice for me now is between these two amps: The Sony STR-DB790 (which I can get alot cheaper than the) Pioneer VXS-812 Now If you had to choose and the price difference would be the worth of a good NAD cd player, which one would you choose? Anybody had any experience with the Sony or the Pio? Please help me, I am lost.
