Must be silver and cute! Women! I am trying to introduce my sister to seperates! She wants Surround sound (in future) so reasonable stereo performance: Max budget for amp £180! Current short list! Sony STRDE495 Sony STRDE595 Pioneer VSXD512 Yamaha HTR5630RDS I am leaning towards the Sony 595 any one own or demoed one ??? In terms of speakers looking at Mission M30/31 and M71i/M72i She would like silver must be good musically and sub £100 preferably £80 £250 max budget you see. She is going for some demos at the weekend/Saturday. I am not a sony fan but they do seem to have the best package at this price. System is to replace her current 9 year old Alba system!!!! She has a PS2 which will be used for DVD, My old Technics 480 CD player and her Panny Portable MD recorder adding Minidisc deck (Sony SJMD480) DVD deck (Tosh SD330E My thoughts) DAB tuner around XMAS all to go with her 14" Combi Any help or advice appreciated guys I demoed a yamaha5640 at sevenoaks with Monitor Audio B1 and B&W DM601s3 sounded great but way over budget! I am well uo for a pair of them for me though!
