OK guys I am looking for some more of your precious advice .... I'm looking to upgrade my current AV Amp (Yamaha - can't remember the model number but a great little performer) for something with 6.1 and DPLII, I'm not worried about THX certification and have a budget of £300. I was looking at the Marantz 4300 which fits the bill and is available at RS for £259. Any other suggestions? As always thanks for the help.
