I use the above combination with a Technics SH-AC300 DD processor. I like the sound of the current setup but I want to upgrade the system for PLII and EX/ES. I looking to spend up to £400 so a separate processor is out of my reach. I plan to buy an new AV amp and use its decoded preamp outputs to feed my current AV setup for 5.1 and use the new AV amp amplified output to drive the rear centre (back) only. Is this a good idea and any opinons on the best AV amp at this price given that it will only be used for decoding? I'm thinking of using a Marantz, Yamaha or Denon AV amp. P.S. The system is used for HC 99% of the time. Current System (In converted garage) Sony vph722 CRT projector Philips Q40 DVD player Mission 752 + 75C + 77DS Rel Q Bass Technics SH-AC300 DD processor.
