    A friend of mine has offered to sell me a Yamaha A1 for £ 500 with 5 months warranty do you think its worth it.He bought it 7 months ago from seven oak's for £1200 and he now wants to get a Denon A10SE. i was going to buy a new amp this week as my sony 930 gave up on me. So is he offering me a brucey bonus


    What should i do


    Thank's in advance

    I'd say that was an absolute steal.
    See if you can wangle a bit more, then that would be a true bargain!!!!

    Go for it. The Yamaha A1 is worth twice that amount and is far superior than your old Sony. I'm just not sure how much better, AV wise, the A10SE will be for your friend.

    Go for it if you are not bothered with DD Ex/DTS Es and 6.1, looks like a bargain to me!
