    I am looking for an entry level amp! I have £400 to spend on a full setup!!!

    I dont need/want anything that is mind blowingly powerful at the moment! Maybe in the future but for now i want to settle for a smallish system that will complement my Samsung hi def LCD and xbox360.

    Any ideas?

    I have been looking at the Cambridge Audio AZUR 540R for £200 from RS (if i can still get one)

    The CA is a good choice for sure and if you can get it at that price, even better:thumbsup:

    is it worth spending the extra and getting the v2??

    I just checked and i can get a V1 for £200 and a V2 for £270?

    Is it worth the extra or should i just get the V1?

    I asked our local importers the same question and the answer was that I was no worse off sticking with my V1.

    There are some changes in the V2 that I would have liked in my CA, but I can live with that.

    The most significant changes are:

    On Screen Display
    Selectable sub-crossover(V1 fixed at 80hz)
    Direct selection of function on remote - DVD, CD, Tuner, etc(V1 has one button that cycles through functions)
    Control Bus In & Out for multi-room integration
    RS232 port for future upgrades(Don't hold your breath!)
    1 additional digital input

    Hope this answers you question as I listened to a V2 and could not hear any improvement on already great sound quality.

    I think one extra feature is that the V2 is HD Compliant (on the component source) whereas the V1 isn't, but I could be wrong!
