    I have had a Yamaha DSP-595a amplifier for the last 6/7 years. I have been really happy with it and not had any problems with it except in the last couple weeks when some of the front channels have been starting to crack up.

    I am now looking to upgrade this amp but having not kept my eye in finding it a nightmare to work out whats out there. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. Below are my main requirements

    1) Dual HDMI Input capable of handling 1080p24 signals
    2) Will Scale Component input -> HDMI (only single input required)
    3) Optical Sound Inputs
    4) Only needs to be 5.1 as I do not have 6.1+ setup

    In terms of power it does not need much its power some Tannoy M1s + M2s + Tannoy Fusion C

    Ideally I would like to have dual HDMI outputs to service my LCD & Projector but I expect a splitter will be much cheaper at ~ £50

    I am not looking for a really expensive amp just a 'good' one which will last another 4/5 years

    Thanks for any suggestions in advance
