    I would like to get an amp/receiver for use with my XBox/PS2. My requirements are that it has 5.1/DTS and at least two optical inputs. I can go up to about £400.

    Any recommendations?

    Hi

    Have a look at the Denon, Yamaha, Marantz and Harmon Kardon range of amps.

    Specific models
    Denon 1802, 2802

    Yamaha AX620 etc

    Marantz 4200, 5200

    Harmon Kardon 3000, 4000 etc

    You'll probably get the usual Denon/Marantz answer here and I'm no exception! :D

    For your buget I would go for Marantz 5200.

    If you wanna save a few quid for games, try the 4200 which has everything you need and ample power for your games stuff.

    Cheers

    I am a big Denon fan but the 1602 only has one optical input so I am going to go for the Marantz SR4200.

    Thanks guys.
