    Any difference? 5400 is about £60 more than 4400. Is it worth the extra?

    5400 is very similar to a 7300 but without the RS232 port on board. There's a bit more grunt, better dacs, component video switching and it has a proper metal fascia that improves the overall feeling of the unit. IMHO the better processing and extra video switching would be worth the extra in my source heavy system.

    This is the comparison point between the two amps. My point is that the 5400 is very similar to the 7300 that at one stage cost about £700 so represents pretty good vfm.
