    Last year I bought Denon DHT550sd for >£520.

    My connections are as following:
    Sky+ to Panny TH42PV500 by RGB scart.
    Sky+ to av amplifier(denon) by optical cable for audio
    Denon DVD player to Panny by component cable
    Denon DVD player to Denon amplifier by optical cable for audio of dvd.

    One of the optical output(which connected to sky+) stopped working. I gave it for repair under extended warranty (by domestic and general). They kept it for more than 2 months just to tell me later that they cant repair it and have offered me £249 (hopefully just for the amplifier). This price depends on empire direct price for Denon DHT1356XP. Link: http://www.empiredirect.co.uk/conte...tre~subdept~HOMETHEATREPACKAGE~make~Denon.htm

    Does anyone know how's DHT1356XP amplifier as compared to the amplifier of DHT550sd. One thing I know is DHT550sd is 6.1 surround but 1356xp is only 5.1.

    I have got plans of buying a HD dvd player also in future.

    Do you guys think it's a good deal they r offering me or I should argue with them for more...

    Can you suggest any other amplifier for this price range to be connected to denon 550sd dvd player.
