    No, have sold AX3 already. I will also note that I will be using the Musical Fidelity A308 to drive the front speakers anyway.

    In that price range i would/did look at the Arcam AVR300, Denon 3805 and the Rotel 1056. I demo'd the Arcam and Denon and went Arcam because i prefered the stereo sound. I was tempted by the rotel but wanted 6.1 for around the £1000 (ok i over spent but the rotel would have been more again to make it 6.1)

    HK AVR 630 replacement for 8500 or wait for the DPR1005/2005 the new digital amps to come through to the uk.
