    Busy renovating my house and have decided to cable up for a HT setup. I've already got the speakers (Mordaunt Short) and it's now time to pick up an amp. Whilst it has got to work pretty well for watching movies etc we also listen to a lot of music. Now this isn't sit down and listen in the optimal listening position but I would still like good quality music reproduction. I spent many years working in high end recording studios (as a musician) so I have a good idea what decent sound is, but have lost a bit of top end in my hearing (age plus load on stage monitoring).

    I've narrowed it down to a couple of choices namely a second hand Denon 3802 or a new Yamaha AX759SE. From the reviews it has been reported that the Yamaha is quite musical which also brings the CA Azur into the equation.

    Any recommendations, taking into account the speakers which I've been told can be quite toppy at first.
