    Hey,

    Looking to get me first Amp/Receiver so I can have 5.1 in all it's glory. I've recently purchased an Eltax A10 sub and I am on the look for speakers. I've got a Pioneer DV350 DVD player.

    Anyway, I'm not really looking to spend more than £100 as I'm poor :D

    Obviously if it's a little over, fair enough. I wouldn't mind purchasing a second hand one either so maybe I can get somethign better for the money.

    So, preferably I would like it to have DPLII as this system is going to be my source for music as well as movies/tv, I don't have a hifi system.

    It doesn't need to have a radio tuner as my tv has one built in.

    I don't know if I am asking too much for the money, probably, but that's my situation. Hoping someone can help :)

    That pioneer would go nicely with my dvd player as it is also pioneer, but only for looks.

    Ok, so I could possibly go for the Yam second hand, might be able to get it for the price of the VSXC100.

    The Yam doesn't mention sub out? Does it not have a seperate sub out or have RS just not mentioned it?

    Been through store finder, can't find anything on the site regarding the "Open Box" day?
