At present I have a Yamaha DSP-E580 processor used in conjunction with a Audiolab 8000 and XP8000 which I use for music. So I was originally hoping Yamaha would be upgrading their stand alone 800 processor but alas they do not seem to be doing that. So I will have to get a AV Amp (but will not use for the front two speakers). Is it worth spending a lot of money if Im not going to use the front 2 stereo speakers? As I-link technology is just coming out is it worth hanging on an other year till all amps have it as the only one that I know have it are the Pioneer AX5 and the AX10 (silver only). If I spend over £500 I will probably not change it for anything better for 10 years.
