Whilst watching TV last night, I noticed that my Sherwood 6103 has developed a tendancy to increase the volume all by its self!!! And typical, it's 6 weeks outside the warranty period . Now, assuming the problem is a real one, and I'm jnot imagining things, I will need a new reciever, but budget is limited. Based on research here, I've drawn up a short list: Pioneer VSXD512 Sony STRDE495 Sony STRDE595 Denon 1603 Yamaha 5640 I've heard the Sony STRDB790 is a great amp, but just a little above the budget . So, can anyone give any feedback on these? FWIW, they will be working with the following kit: Toshiba ST330E (for DVD and CD) Sony KV-32FX68 Pace NTL digital cable box Eltax Jupiter speakers Thanks . Dave.
