I would be tempted to get the Cambridge Audio 540R for £250. This I think is a better sounding amp than the Sony but does not decode the HD formats (although it does have analogue inputs so can get HD formats with the right player).
I would also look at the KEF 1005 5.1 package (see if you can get a demo of both this and the Tannoy to see which you prefer- also do the same with the amps).
