    I have the STRDB930 which I am very pleased with. I thought about upgrading to the STRDB1070 as it has 6.1.
    However this amp got a severe mauling in HCC. Can anyone give their own opinions on this amp. Do they agree with the HCC review?:rolleyes:

    Sonny,

    You know how to touch a nerve don't you.

    Have a look at the thread http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=26801 in Mag Feedback.

    Craig_Nike will also add his comments if he spots your post (which he will)

    PS Loughborough is not a million miles from Tamworth and you are most welcome to come over for a listen if you want.

    You will not see a huge leap in sound quality by moving up to the newer Sony. Consider spending about double the price of the Sony to jump to the next level of performance.

    Thanks,
    Ian and Beddie for your swift responses.
    Would a visit sometime be practical Ian?
    Perhaps we can arrange something.
    See my profile to get in touch.:)

    Like IanJ I am a big fan of the 1070.

    FYI it definately decodes dts 5.1 ES & DD EX which are features it doesn't adequately advertise.

    My mate had a STRDB940 and upgraded to the 1070 and is very pleased with the difference. (Especially having a Center Rear speaker).

    A few of the people around the place think Sony kit is inferior to Denon, but most of the time they're talking about the 3802 or higher spec. which is 400 pounds more expensive !

    Unless you want to spend double for 5% better sound quality - the 1070 is excellent value and sounds awesome. (IMHO)

    BTW if you're going to spend double anyway have a look at the STRDA 5 ES -

    Good Luck - let us know which way you go and how it sounds!
