Well-known Member
At the moment i have a sony stdb930 and i'm thinking of changing for something with dpl2 and all the other new formats.I have not herd any yet and have up to £400 to spend.I have only looked on web sites and a few mags at the moment .

Models i have seen are the pioneer vsxd811 and sony 1080 but not seen much about them on the forums someone must have these amps what do they think of them?

more into dvd than cd...

oh bye the way its got to silver no gold (the wife) to fit with the rest off the system.

Can't go wrong with th Pioneer. Available in silver, sounds stonking and is £305 from BOS Electronics in Ruislip.

Welcome to the forum BTW.:)


Both are great with movies, little to choose. If you liked your 940 then you will find the 1080 even better. It's great for music too and I would have thought had the edge on the Pioneer but that's from what others have said.

The Pioneer should be cheaper so it's really a matter of personal choice. I am delighted with my 1080 which I bought as a stop-gap before I get some real serious kit.
