    right well i just got a new moniter the dell 2407wfp hc lol yes its nie..BUT now i have gotton biten..i now want more.. im looking for a cheap av reciever high powerd but good sound..110watts rms would be around the mark. id prefer 7.1 but i would go for a 5.1 if it had better funcionality. its mainly for audio but if it could up mix composite video to 1080i through componant output (is it possible?)that would be a winner. easy setup would also be a bonus but im willing to fiddle with it a bit to get best sound(some av receivers have a mic to calabrate..are these worth getting?) would love thx cetified but lol they cost alot more than im willing. max price would be around 300 but i would prefer closer to £200. im not botherd about hdmi as i have no tv that uses that input. min opticle inputs needed are 3. either black or silver doesnt matter.

    now the brand problem... id like either a pioneer or yamaha..but specs matter most. please help thank you.

    ps:recommend speakers too lol...cheap/bargin but match power to amp... ill only use 2 for a wile then ill get sub/centre so on...

    (sorry for typos..i sliced my middle finger :(..dam knife....)

    Yam 759 at £250ish from Richersounds.
    Or the Yam 761, but costs more, with HDMI etc.
    The big fave atm is the Onkyo 605, but well over budget at £400.

    All have auto setup, but I'd prefer to do it myself, FWIW.
    THX doesn't mean jack, IMO. It only means the company is willing to buy the license.
    Upping composite to 1080 would be a waste of time.

    Speakers?
    You don't say what the budget is.

    Sorry, my answers probably appear a bit harsh, they're not meant to be :)

    I'm just busy atm :)

    Up the speaker budget to £150, will get you something like Mordaunt Short 902.
    Not brilliant, but not bad either, for the money.
    Stick them near the corners and they will give good (albeit boomy) bass.
