I was originally looking at buying an all in one system, but I came across a set of Mordaunt Short premiere speakers at an absolute bargain price (less than £100 brand new!!!!!! ) so decided to buy them and go for seperates. My only problem is now I'm not sure what to buy. I have a budget of £500, and my original thoughts were to go with the Pioneer VSX1015 amp with the 585 DVD player as I can pick these 2 up for £480 for both. But I have now managed to find a Pioneer VSX AX5i for £450, but I think it is the older model before it was upgraded. My question is, is the older AX5i worth the extra (about £90) over the new 1015? Also are there any other receivers/amps around the £350-£400 mark that are worth me checking out. My biggest problem is they have to be missus friendly and look 'nice' as well, which is one of my reasons for the pioneer as it is not cluttered with buttons on the front!!!
