    After searching the forum I am considering the Yamaha Dsp 630. My priority is movies over music. Has anyone had a bad experience with this model? Also whats the cheapest price at the moment? Thanks in advance.

    Very good amp, I use one with no problems.
    Buy from a local dealer it is always better.

    I also vote for it. I have the 530, little brother, and I am very satisfied. No problems, and I haven't read anything about problems here. Ah! And most of people say that it is the best option if you want it primarily for movies.

    Gets my vote, swapped this after having a Marantz 4300 for a couple of weeks excellent with movies and holds a good tune.

    Got mine from local RS for £270 and change.

    As you know, my friend HB has this amp which she bought after she and I conducted a number of listening tests. We both think that it's great and I may buy one as well soon.

    Got one last week from Richer in Guildford very good amp, still learning about it and will be for a few more weeks yet.
    I use it for 95% movies so ideal.

    I think it's great too and have found RS to be the best price.

    Ace with movies, Ace with music. I've moved to this from a 3-box system of Yamaha processor, and bi-amping Arcam Alpha 8s and am really chuffed with just how good the music is. Though it would be much more of a compromise than it is (in fact, Pro-Logic 2 is that good I'd actually say I prefer it to the old set-up and don't care what any 'audiphiles' may say to that!).

    I am astounded by PLII. Didn't think that any digital processing could have such a good effect on music.

    My only question that remains about the amp is what is "ES compatible" compared to 'proper' DTS-ES. Mentioned in another thread also.

    Thanks for that guys. Unanimous I would say. Looks like a trip to RS is comming up. Just one thing - I see the Dsp620 is quite a bit cheaper, how does it compare with the Dsp630? Thanks again in advance.
