    Has anybody got one of these?

    I demoed one last Saturday and it sounded very good with films and excellent with music. Didn't do a comparison with another amp at the same time, although its music performance was far better than my Sony STR-DB940.

    Is it worth its £1800 price tag or would a similar improvement on the music front be obtained from, say, a £1000 receiver? (PS - I want a one-box solution)

    How about the Rotel RSX-1055 instead.

    It's lower powered (60w per channel I think) but appart from that is pretty much identical.

    Best thing ... it's around £600 less than the RSX-1065

    Apart from the Rotel, the NAD T752 and T762 would also be worth auditioning if Music is a priority, and also the Arcam AVR200. The Marantz 8200 is also well reguarded and I think thats around £1000 too.

    If Music is important to you ... make sure you also think about a CD player (even a £200 NAD C521 if thats all you can afford) as this will be a lot more musical than most DVD players.
