    I've been reading the forums for quite some time now, and always had seen good information and advice.

    He's my issue...
    I have just purchased a nice new shinny Panasonic 42" Plasma. My speakers are HKTS 11 (Harmon Kardon) in black and I would like to connect a PS3 for my Bluerays films.

    So I'm in desperate need of an AV Amp. I only have a small amount of space available.. about 12cm x 45cm x 40cm (H x W x D). Does anybody have any suggestions ???

    Thanks as always,
    Rich
    :lease:

    With the limitation in height, I would suggest your only option is the CA 540R V2 or V3. There is a recent thread with a link to a voucher to get the V2 in store for £150 which is a bargain. The V3 offers 2:1 HDMI switching but costs a fair bit more as it has not long been released. I would do some research though as I'm sure the CA540R V2 is 10cm high, which doesn't leave you much room for heat to escape but should be okay, providing it fits ok.

    Thanks for the help on this... although I have move some of my other stuff around and can now get a little more room.

    I have removed my DVD player to another room.. so I now need to connect

    1 - Sony DVD / HDD recorder
    2 - Sky Std - Sky + on its way
    3 - Sony PS3

    Maximum hight is now 14.5 cm which should give me some better options.. I hope !!

    Any other thoughts on this ??

    Thanks
