    I have the 506 but with KEF 1005.2 speakers so can only really comment on the amp. I have been impressed with the sound quality and I am now a definite home cinema convert!

    That does look like a good value deal, however...

    ... have you considered the 576 amp?

    It is only about £25-£50 more than a 506 and has the big advantage that it can accept audio over HDMI which the 506 cannot. I think that is worth it for being more future proof.

    I wish now I had bought the 576 amp and perhaps spent less on the speakers.

    Also, worth checking out Denon and Yamaha amps - they seem to be getting good write ups at the moment (loads on these forums about them) whilst the Onkyos are losing their popularity a bit.
