    Thanks Graham 14 but was after the 940 - IIRC the Sony's went down hill after the 940

    What price was you looking for the 1070?

    Don't know of exact differences
    Between 940 and 1070.
    1070 is 6.1 as against 5.1.
    IIRC 940 was superseded by 1070
    My receiver is in mint unmarked
    Condition complete with remote control and manual although I don't
    Have original box
    Would be looking for £75 plus delivery estimated at £15

    Have you considered a DB930? IMO it's a better amp overall than the DB940 as it was built almost to Sony ES standard (the DB930 actually has ES grade output amps inside), and was in fact rated as better than some later ES spec'd units that came out after it! I'm just curious to know why you're after a DB940 model specifically? Anyway have a free bump!

    I have read this too in regards to the 930 v 940 (agoraquest - Sony forum in the USA) however the 930 had a few issues that the 940 ironed out with also a few improvements in the LFE control - IIRC

    I have owned both the 930/940 - to my ears the 940 was as good - I also owned the tan9000es's but always went back to the 940..

    It will be performing 2 channel duties in my gym - i recall putting it up against the mighty Pioneer VSX ax4ais and the 940 blew it out of the water!
