Sony STRK800 - any good?

That would depend on what you want the amp to do.

Do you want the latest HD sounds from Blu-ray Discs on the PS3? What speakers are you planning on using ?

Is it a good buy is a very subjective question.

Not bothered about bluray etc. Just want a cheapish amp and it having hdmi is a bonus. Using ms 902 speakers and 309sub. Is it ok then?

I had one myself for a while (I've since upgraded to an STR-DG910) and was very happy with it.

The only reason for changing was to simplify the cabling at the back of my equipment and to gain from PCM soundtracks.

It's not suitable for the HD-DVD/Blu-Ray world despite the HDMI's but if it's for normal DVD, Freeview, Sky, etc then it's a great choice.

RS in middlesbrough had 9 to clear at £200. Why are they no good for bluray like? Was going to put ps3 and skyhd into amp and have 1 hdmi to panel - would that be ok?
