    Hey,

    Ok I currently have a Sony STR-DB940 but I am possibly going to purchase the Kef KHT 5005's and am worried that my amp will not be able to make the new speakers work that well...

    I know a few years ago this amp was very hot, but will it let the 5005's down?

    I would spend about £300-400 on a new one if need be, but don't really have any idea on what I could get for this. I wouldn't mind second hand either, not a big fuss for me if it's in good condition.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Nobody got any say on what to match the 5005's with? Any recommendations in the price range I have specified will be appreciated :)

    I'd say in that price range, the Yamaha AX750 perhaps?

    I would suggest you wait and save some more money before partnering £1200 of speakers with a £3-400 amp. Perhaps double your budget and get a Yamaha 2400 for £650 from superfi. That will do your speakers justice. :lesson:
