    Erm, 32 people had to look just to see what you were asking about. That doesn't necessarily follow that they know the answer.

    I for one don't.

    Mark.

    (Swallows thickly) Yes... quite right :eek:

    I apologise for being a tit, I needed the info then and there -- why I seemed irritable.

    If I had stated in the thread title the actual amp...:rolleyes:

    Anyway, the amp is supposed to be £300 RRP, £200 2nd hand too pricey?

    It got a good review: http://www.homecinemachoice.com/testbench/Amplifiers/Kenwood/KenwoodKRF-V7030D.shtml

    My condolence to Chris, as Mark was able to bash me first. :clown:

    No "bashing intended", just wanted to explain the phenomenon where so many look and se few reply.

    It wasn't the first time we've needed to look at a post to see what it's about and I'm sure it won't be the last.

    You got good info from hornydragon on it so it was worth it in the end.

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    Well, horny dragon has given me the best comparative price for the Kenwood KRF-V7050D

    But, I wanted to find a price for the Kenwood KRF-V7030

    I'm not convinced these two models are exactly the same.

    In the pricerunner product details the 7050D does not have a subwoofer out (http://uk.pricerunner.com/sound-and-vision/sound/receivers/66718/details), HCC says the 7030 does.

    btw, the 7030 has a 6-channel input (not shown on Pricerunner), do 6-channel inputs accept 5.1-channel inputs? Is 6-channel input just a shorter way of saying 5.1-channel input?

    The 7050 will have a subwoofer out. It's part of the Dolby Digital licence. No 'woofer out, no Dolby logo.

    I've been looking at budget receivers and, to answer your question, no £200 is not a good price. I have had some good responses from my thread on budget PL2 receivers, so have a look at that. The 7030 is an old model and does not have Pro Logic ii (hence being sold off cheap). The 7050 does and is a better deal. The new models are the 60 series, 4060 up to 9060. The 6060 has Circle Surround II and in addition to Sub pre-out, has centre surround pre-out in case you want to upgrade to 6.1 later. EmpireDirect have this for £226.41 + delivery, as well as plenty of other models around the £200 mark.

    I might start another thread but all I truly need from my amp is: -

    An amp that will accept a "5.1 channel" output from a PC Soundcard (Soundblaster Audigy). Its an HCPC thang.

    50-80Wpc at least

    £100-150

    No decoders necessary, I will use PowerDVD with PL2, DTS software decoding. See below.

    http://www.gocyberlink.com/english/products/product_main.jsp?ProdId=28


    Errm, thats about it.

    This Circle Surround jazz has caught my attention, I'll only have five channels anyway, so I might pick up the other Kenwood.


    Any other :)grin: cheaper) suggestions based on my needs are very welcome. ;)

    edit: after reading budget PL2 thread.

    If you don't want any of the new features, I would suggest looking at Loot. You'll probably pick something up for 70 or 80 quid, plenty of people are upgrading. For discounted old models (but new) try www.richersounds.com
