    Anyone have any experience with or own a Yamaha DSP-AX759SE? Movie use only and have a budget of £250. Speaker set KEF 1005.

    I can't seem to find a reviiew or opinion anywhere on this amp. Is it a reasonable budget entry level amp?

    Cheers

    I seriously doubt you'll get better VFM at that price.
    That's a lot less than I paid for my 557, 18 months ago.
    Which is 2 down the previous range to the 759.

    For info, the previous range 357, 457, 557, 657 and 757 was replaced by the 359, 459, 559, 659, 759.

    The 759 is only so cheap, because it's about to be superceded (again).

    Blimey, even better :thumbsup:
    I'd suggest that's a steal at that price.
    Congrats mate, I'm sure you'll be happy.

    Be sure to let us know what you think :smashin:

    It will make a huge difference.

    Got mine about a month back also form digital direct and it is superb, i was chuffed with it thinking it was a budget amp now i'm even more so fom what i've read here.

    The set up is a doddle with the auto set up and the manual is very detail I can't see how you won't be the cat that got the cream once you hear it.
