    I've just seen this amp, which has built in DAB.
    This seems like a great feature that no other amps of the same price have.
    Is the sony good in the other areas?
    I'm a keen sony fan (my dad used to work for them), with a sony tele and if i got the amp i'd probably get a matching dvd player.

    I'm thinking of matching these with the aegis evo 3s (see other threads :) ).

    Thanks for all the help,
    You guys have been great so far!

    I've heard that it doesn't actually have DAB onboard and it was a what hi-fi misprint.

    I'm fairly sure it does, it says it has it on a couple of magazines and all the sites it is on

    It doesn't have DAB. WHF apologised for the error in the October issue (page 40 something) and there is no accredited DAB logo on the front. Plain vanilla RDS only.

    This is mainly because most written info is on the strength of that WHF article. Sony's only DAB module AFAIK is the big and expensive one used in the 777ES which wouldn't be suitable.
