Hi, I'm hoping to upgrade my budget Yamaha DSP-E800 to a higher-end proc sometime in the potentially foreseeable future. My initial plan was to save up (and up and up and up...) and get something like a TAG AV30R, or second-hand 32R, but I've recently heard of Cyrus AV5's going for around the £650 mark ex-dem and I was just wondering if this even comes close to the TAGs in terms of sound quality, and should I consider this as a more short-term upgrade? See, if I only have to shell out £650, I can probably get it around January, whereas if I have to spend £1000 on top of that for the TAG, we're talking 1 to 2 years... i.e. aaaaaaages... I have no need for anything more than DD and DTS 5.1 - all this newfangled 6.1/7.1 and ProLogic II mumbo jumbo's got no appeal to me whatsoever (or at least, there's no way I could fit an extra speaker or two in my room in any case), and I don't see myself having any need for it in the next couple years. I reckon, if I go for a Cyrus AV5 in January, that would have me sorted for at least 1 to 2 years, at which time maybe I could afford a top-of-the-line TAG, or maybe an Arcam AV8, or Meridian - or even Lexicon maybe? I just want to know if the Cyrus is a big step up from my current Yamaha, or if I should just not bother. In terms of movie sound quality, if my Yammy's a 1, and the TAG AV30R is a 10, where would the Cyrus stand? If it's around 6 - 7 or more then I'll go for it. Otherwise, it's probably not worth it. I will get around to demoing, but probably not for a while, so I'd just like to see what people think. Cheers, Dunc P.S. - If anyone has any other suggestions for high quality AV procs around £500-1000 (the lower the better), including 2nd-hand and ex-dem, that you think I should consider, please do let me know!
