    Hi

    a little advice please

    looking for an amp for a smallish room, will connecting ntlbox, video, dvd (digital output), xbox (digital output) and another games console.

    Been looking at the denon 1602- but i don't think it has enough digital inputs. Does the equivalent marantz (seems to have more inputs) match the denon.

    Secondly are there any slimline amps? I've seen the pioneer but it seems to be very limited on inputs.


    thanks for any advice

    I'll come back later for help with some small speakers :)

    Hi

    The Denon 1802 may suit you better as it has 4 digital inputs, 3 optical and 1 coaxial. You´ll find as you go up the range the amount of inputs etc increases, this usually applies to most manufacturers.

    As you´ve mentioned, Pioneer have slimline amps but most others tend to be larger (taller).

    cheers

    Marantz and Denon are usually very similar spec, you won`t get loads of digital inputs unless you go for a midrange amp / receiver. Exactly how many do you need, and what combination (.i.e optical / coaxial)?

    Panasonic have just released a slimline amp, sony are due onele, and yamaha are due one also late July. Pioneer are replaceing the current model next month, think it has an extra dig in....

    Hope that helps?
