    Well i know its not the best amp in the world but surely its not the worst for the price as i said its for my "budget" setup, not all of us have loads of money for av stuff so if you havnt got any thing helpful to say then dont bother saying anything at all

    Well ... looking at Richer Sounds ... for around £200 you can get ...

    Yamaha RX-V430 and Pioneer VSXD810 for £200 ... then stretching your budget a little we have the Denon AVR1602 for £220, then the Marantz SR4300 and the Yamaha RX-V530 for £260 ... all of these would comfortable out perform the Sony.

    But really it's not wise to buy something ... then post such a question because you will always get some smart person saying ... ah yes ... but you could have bought ...

    Oh ... and to actually answer your question ... I would guess there were between 1,000 and 150,000 of the Sony 870's made so yes ... a few people have them!!

    PS. Sorry for the sarcasm in this ... no offence meant.

    Thanks for the helpful reply:) i'll do a bit of research and i will see what i can do about changing the amp over if the other ones meet the g/f's approval:blush: as its about the look as well.

    Will i really notice the difference at this price level?

    Well ... some of the ones I meantioned have PL II - Yamaha 430, Marantz SR4200 and SR5200 and the Denon 1602 - which I think is a great improvement on PLI if you watch a lot of Video (cassettes) and/or TV.

    Well ... SKy was counted in "TV" unless you mean watching on Sky Movies on a Sky plus box then you do get DD ... but not otherwise.
