Firstly apologies for long post, please have a quick scan at some of the decoders I link to and offer comments etc. Thanks in advance. Basically looking for a smallish but capable set-up with sufficient volume and good quality sound for my PC (nvidia soundstorm optical output dolby digital AC3 and all that). Main uses will be playing games, watching DVD's and listening to music. I currently use a mini hi-fi system by Aiwa which is adequate for analogue stereo but I'd like to move up to something nicer which I could possibly use in my Lounge when I move out from my mum's house with a dvd player and nice tv. (Finances permitting, lol.) My budget is around £200 but could possibly stretch to £300 or stagger purchase of items. I already have 4 speakers from mini hi-fi systems. Just read the spec of the lowest spec speaker and it says 6ohms. I have put a * next to the one's that strike me as interesting. I have heard sony amps are crap so probably best to avoid them? Possibe options for a half height decoder are as follows. Pioneer VSXC100 silver £139.95 * Sony STR-KSL5 £119.95 Pioneer VSXC301 Silver £159.95 * Pioneer VSXC550-S £199.95 Full size decoders (preferred) Pioneer VSXD512S £139.99 (out of stock ) * Yamaha HTR5630 £129.95 * (also have HTR5640 for £219.95) Teac AG5D £192.95 * Any thoughts or advice appreciated. Currently thinking the Yamaha HTR5630 if RicherSounds has it in stock.... Thanks in advance, kind regards, tHatDudeUK.
