    Anyone got the above amp and are you happy with it? Looking at taking the plunge into 7.1 and this looks the best option for the money. Also can you confirm it does not have component video switching, only s-video. Thanks

    I don't have the AX3, but can confirm that it doesn't have component video switching, only S-Video and Composite.

    I have got the ax3 - very happy with it. If you don't need the extra functionality of the ax5 (which I don't) then the ax3 is stonkin' good value.

    i got a friend to use his staff discount at a local electrical retailer.
    But even at £600 its worth it.

    John Archer (Reviewer at What Video TV) said that if you can't use iLink, then sonically, the AX3 and AX5i are identical.
