Have had to sell all my hi-fi stuff, and replace with AV amp and DVD player. Speakers I still have (i.e. Linn Keilidh, Linn Centrik and Linn Index). Shorlisted the following amps: Sony STR-DA5000ES (£740 at techtronics) Pioneer VSX-AX3 or VSX-AX5i (£594 & £885 at QED respectively) NAD T762 (£850 at avland) or there's an old Denon AVC-A11SR (2nd for approx £800). All offer 7 channel power except the NAD - is this important? Looking not only for excellent movie sound, but passable music as well. For DVD - shortlisted the following: Pioneer 757i (£609 at techtronics) Sony DVP-NS999ES (£740 at techtronics) Marantz DVD-17 (£699 ex-dem) Cyrus DVD7 (£585 ex-dem) Arcam DV88 (£500 ex-dem not plus) Denon 2900 (£750) Not bothered with progressive scan, but still looking for excellent picture quality along with good CD replay. SACD and DVD-audio are just bonuses. ANy help appreciated.
