Right I need help choosing a new A/V Reciever because the old sony we have had for years has finally given in and no longer works, and isnt worth replacing, the only problem is the Reciver itself cant be any taller than 130mm. Also seeing as only Yamahas seem to have sync features, but they all seem to be to tall for the space. But if I wasnt having sync problems on the old sony, would it be likely I would have any with just replacing the amp. Also as I havent bought one for several years, im not upto speed on all the features they have now, it seems s if you can connect the component out of the dvd player to the amp then up to the tv? am i right in thinking this? and what are the advantages of doing it? my old sony only had audio in options and nothing to piggyback so to speak to the tv. Also not sure about budget, preferably nothing over £350 although might be able to stretch to it. Thanks for the help! Neil.
