    Its difficult to suggest anything, except maybe save. You have a cheaper system so obviusly your looking to get the next level up, and altough recomending the lower end full sized recievers from the likes of denon and yamaha, i doubt the improvement would be enough to stave off any further need to upgrade in the near future.

    You could go with the yamaha av set 57 , which includes the entry level amp and some decent starter speakers, all this for under £200, but if you want better than that your gonna have to put more money in. Maybe with a little saving

    The Audio Azur 540R is worth saving for.
    I personaly would not first get a sub. Amp, speakers and then a sub.

    mmm yes that does look good!

    what would be the cheapest and best option with video switching & upscaling?

    If you mean upconversion not upscalling then I think the entire yamaha x57 range has both, although the 657 (£300+) is probably the best one to start at and demo against a 757 (if you can one :p) . All amps have video switching though, just the upconversion is a bit newer, upscaling is very new and only coming out now on the higher end models.
