Well I'm finally getting into a position sort out my home cinema after some rather scary tax bills!! Earlier in the year I was pretty decided to go for the Yamaha DSP-750AX but today I found myself in Audio-T being demo'd the Arcam AVR200 as part of there special offer on these end of range amps... They are offering the AVR200 for £450 and if you combine it with the Arcam DV89 player they are also doing the deal comes out at £1100. Now I'm pretty decided on the speakers for the moment, the Kef 2005.2's with the center upgraded to the Q6c (I found it gave a much stronger sound) and using my Velodyne CRT-10 sub. I will be using my system around 90% movies and 10% music. Having explained this I was a little surprised to be shown the Arcam as I understand these are damned fine for music so perhps not the ideal thing for me. Now the setup sounded/looked great... but they didn't have a Yam in stock and the only other 'cheap' amp they had there was a Denon 1905 which I know I don't want as it's not powerful enough (have heard a 1705 already). So basically I've got nothing to compare the Arcam too... and I'm wondering whether I would do best to just stick to my original decision and go for the Yam as they are now around the £350 mark (and maybe less soon as the new models come out?) Sorry, I guess that's a bit of a vauge question but I just wanted to get it off my chest really.. is he out dated Arcam gonna give me more pleasure than the Yam? And I've seen on another thread that the Kef's don't do the Arcam justice... will they do the Yam justice?
