I have the following equipment all about 5 years old and am looking at upgrading the Amp and DVD player to support a new Philips 37PF9830 LCD. My requirements are movies much more than music (90/10 split). My budget was about £500-£750 to replace the Amp and DVD as I don't want to spend too much on a DVD with HD-DVD in 18 months or whenever!). However I don't want to buy an Amp that does not drive the speakers. Existing equipment Sony DB930 AV Amp receiver Fronts : B&W 603 S2 Centre : B&W CC6 S2 Rears : B&W DM601 S2 Sub: None DVD: Sony DVP-S725D (probably replace this with a Denon 1920 to upscale) Sky+ RGB/Optical Looking at the mags the Yamaha DSPAX757SE seems to be highly recommended (I know it is not a tuner). My questions are: 1) How will this work with my speakers? Would you recommend a different Amp? 2) I have never had a sub and haven't missed it as the DM603's seem great with the low frequencies. Am I wrong on this? 3) How much difference am I going to notice over the Sony Amp. Do I need to take advantage of the 7.1. My room is only wired for 5.1? 4) All my AV will be HDMI in the near future - is it worth switching it through the Amp as the TV only has 1 HDMI in (assuming Sky+ HD in Feb, DVD, X-Box 360). (It also has a DVI) All help really appreciated as I can not go to a specialist and listen to lots of equipment as I am in Guernsey! I have to decide using Magazines and advice in these forums.
