    I'm about to get a new amp and am wondering what people think of the above.
    I know the denon's aren't out yet but is the 50£s worth the upgrade from 1705 to 1905? Baring in mind I'm going to be running 5.1, definitely not 6.1 or 7.1
    (too little space & too few speakers :p)

    Also, I'm interested in the harman kardon. What do people think of that in comparison? It is 100£s more, is it worth it? That would be pushing my budget.
    I've seen the 130 on eBay from Germany for 250£s, does anyone know whether the remote and display will be in english or german?

    I'll be listening to a lot of stereo on this
    I'm thinking of pairing it with the monitor audio b4s or aegis evo 3s + center.
    (I'll be asking questions about these in a different thread :p)

    Thanks for any help!
    Robert

    I've just this morning ordered a 1905 from http://www.avland.co.uk (due next week) and a set of Mission FS2-AVs from http://www.discounelectricaldb.co.uk.

    I'll post my thoughts after running in the speakers. I'm no hifi buff and haven't heard the others, but I know every little helps when you're building a system :)

    Denon 1905 minimum, or the 2105.

    The 1705 model replaces the 1404...

    1905 or Marantz sr4500.

    the 1905 replaces the 1604 then?
    do you know what the 2105 is going for?

    i'm looking at the sony 795 as well now, after its review in what hifi, seems pretty cool

    the price :)
    or is it out now?
    in fact, i think it is out isn't it
    sorry, i'll have a look.
    i think it is too much though
    is the 1905 worth the extra considering i won't use 7.1 and that i can get the sony with more power for 240?
