    HI all
    Looking to put one of the above to go with my Mordaunt short premiere + speaker system but, with them all being a similar price wondered which would be the best purchase ( leaning towards the Pioneer at the mo )

    Sony 795, has buzzing problems ( possibly )
    Denon, not sure of the looks of the unit ? ( doesnt appeal to me,,sorry )
    Pioneer, well not much i can find against it, also there are plenty of suppliers have it in stock,

    Help please :rolleyes:

    Use will be mostly movies and watching music chanels

    Coupling it with:-

    pioneer 575 dvd
    panasonic e55 dvd recorder
    panasonic viera plasma
    ( hope that helps )

    Regards IAn,,

    I'd go for the Pioneer, but saying that, all three are good amps.

    The Denon may suit the Mordaunt Short speakers a little better though, but I doubt the difference will be that noticeable. I'd disregard the Sony due to the sheer number of issues that have been flagged on it and continue to be flagged on it, I believe the buzzing issue is still on going.

    The Pioneer would also mean one less remote, as you could use the amps remote to also control the DVD player :D

    Although the AX3 remote doesn't seem to control the 575 :confused:. I would go for the Pioneer out of those units although I would also suggest a look at the Marantz SR4500 as that is a very nice amp indeed.

    Cheers for your valued input Kazman, geting rid of one more remote is proberly a big bonus point for the Pioneer :thumbsup:

    Also a big thankyou to 'tons of fun' but unfortunatly the 4500 is out of my buget :mad:

    From those three above, I agree with Kazman, the Pio would be the choice.
