    At the mo i have a old pioneer amp which was bought (off ebay) as a temp solution until i got around to buying a better one. I have a budget of up to £400ish. This is what id like:

    - at least 2 HDMI inputs (switching) which do 1080p and that 24 fps thing! for PS3 and sky
    - at least 3 optical inputs for pc, xbox and sky.
    - would like it to be black (to match ps3, tv sky hd etc)

    think thats about it, just basicly want a amp that will do PCM and switching!

    Cheers fellas

    Glad to help. I don't see anything else touch it at this price point for features. Not sure about the looks though, :eek: they should sack the designer! :D

    Yep, it'll allow 1080p/24 pass through as far as I know, might want to confirm that with the sales guy just in case.

    Black is beautiful!

    I would go for the Onkyo 605 on your budget, its definatly the best in your price range for value, features and sound, I have the Onkyo 875 and its awesome ! Onkyo are on fire at the moment ! :thumbsup:
