I wandered into my local AV specialists today for some cable for installing my new 507xd.

The upshot being that I ended up coming out with a new amp.
Ive bought a Denon AVR 2307 to replace my old but still good Sony STR-db940.
This was done purely for connectability.
Will I notice mch of a difference ?
Hopefully it will be an improvement.

how have you found it?

I have a sony STR-DB830, and was considering getting something like a 2307 or onkyo 674 for HDMI audio and switching convenience. But it'd be nice to get better sound too :)

To be absolutely honest and I run the risk of being shot down in flames here but I preferred my Sony.
Whether that is just because I was familiar with it and knew how to change settings at the drop of a hat or what I dont know.
It just seemed better to me.
I suppose it is down to the individual.

do you mean the Sony sounds better or just you prefer the way it operates?

Primarily the Sony sounds better ( to me ), im sure others would beg to differ but it suited me.

I keep having to turn up the centre speaker up higher than the setup mic sets it to on the Denon.

The switching between appliances is easier on the Denon as it is just a push of a button. I felt the Sony was fine too but it seemed to confuse everyone else. When my parents came to stay I would spend time virtually every day resetting my system cos they had pressed every button on every remote trying to just change channels or switch to dvd etc. I even produced a pictorial step by step guide and still they cocked it up. :rolleyes:
