Struggling to choose/ find the Amp I'm after


Established Member
After a month of looking at various Amps I'm struggling to find what I'm after.

Requirements :
Price tag : £500-£600
Simultaneous Dual Zone output for simultaneous inputs.
Conversion from any input to HDMI or Component Output, dual HDMI out would be great.
Sub Out, NOT Pre-sub, assuming the sub on the AE in not suitable for Pre-Sub
Suitable to drive Acoustic Energy Aego T 5.1

Now I've looked at various amps including :
Denon AVR-1507, considered a little too cheap
Onkyo TX-SR674E, looks a tad dull and a review I read didn't rate it, but can get it for £299 from superfi
Pioneer VSX-2016AV, very tempting, but doesn't seem to do the dual zone thing, see forum post

After a month of looking around I just can't seems to find what I'm after. Could anyone give any advice on the above

Thanks All

the denon 2807 does most of those things it think. can be had for around th £650 mark. great amp.

The Denon does fit the bill, but i think you'll struggle to find dual HDMI outouts at this price point at the moment.

No problem, it's a good price, have to say I'm very tempted to go for the 674 for £299 and free delivery, just need to check if will do simultaneous zones.

Well, couldn't resist, for the price I think it's a steal at £299, Onkyo it is, looking at the Superfi site now, just in time too because it's back to £399.

Thanks for the responses, but price ended up winning.

be aware that second zones are normally only able to play analogue inputs, not optical inputs....
