You may already be laughing, but we have a Technics SA AX710, Symphony 6 fronts, JPW sub and some cr4ppy wharfedale centre with AS rears (don't know model) Now this was "inherited" via my partner and I want to upgrade but am having trouble - she says "it's good enough" I disagree. I'm putting together a shortlist, but theres seems to be soooo much choice nowadays that I really need help. So I've got a "few" questions. 1. Modern amps - I think it's a daft question to ask, but would one of my choices (8/912, 440/540/640 etc) be a good improvement? 2. Which amps tend to have the best compromise between music and home cinema? For the £300 ish range. Was initially thinking the 640se, then wondered if it's worth the extra over the 440se, or if the 812 is better than an 1803. I guess they're "all" great? 3. Speakers - The Tannoy FX5.1 can be had for a great price, but I've always been dubious of small satellite speakers compared to bookshelfs/floorstanders. Is this a good cinema/hifi package, or would it be better to go for a package like an M70? I have an old pair of 751s - would these be better as fronts or have things moved on that much, that the cheap bookshelfs are better nowadays? 4. DVD player. Was set on a 565. Then saw reviews of the Limit 900. Now just seen reviews of the Denon 770sd. I know theres always something better around the corner, but I want to get the best that I can, for the budget I have. Richer are doing the 565 for £150, which seems like a fantastic deal. Currently "borrowing a Sony S725P. All this will be hooked up to a Philips 9308. So it's an open ended question, but could do with some personal experience recommendations, rather than relying on magazine lab type reports. Plus the more noticeable the improvements, the easier my life will be Thanks in advance.
