Hi I'm caught between a rock and a hard place - I cant decide between the above 2 amps! Having read a recent review in What hifi about the 757se which can be had for about £400 (I know I shouldn't trust it too much but its a starting place) they state it sounds like a £1000 amp which is what the Arcam AVR250 is. The reason I want one is mainly for home cinema (I may choose to sell up my MF gear one day and then consolidate into one amp but not for a long time I hope) and I will probably go for the Monitor Audio Radius package to please the gaffer! (I was tempted by the Kef eggs due to price but not by M&K or B&W - look ugly IMHO!). Does anybody have a view as to what I should do (I have also looked at a Harman Kardon DPR2005 - looks great but no video upconversion - I probably wont use it but maybe I'm just being a snob - don't know!). All advice greatfully received!
