Looking to replace a home cinema system (sony dvd combined) and will be going for a DVD recorder and, for the first time, introducing an amplifier to give me the 5.1 I need. I'm just looking at the budget end and it will be for movies and also need to be compatible with the DVD recorder (Toshiba RDXS34). I'm swithering between the Pioneer VSXC301 (from Richer Sounds) and the Denon 1705 (from Empire Direct). Can anyone offer any advice/comparison/insight into these options? Or does anyone think I'm off the mark and should be looking at something else?
