    Currently running Technics CD and Amp through pair of B&W 602s. Just added pannie S75 DVD and considering next step on home cinema sound system. Question is do I replace existing amp with an AV Receiver (and probably lose out on stereo performance?) or add extra channels by way of a processor such as the Yamaha DSP E800 for home cine use?

    Anybody gone through the same thought process?:(

    I used to run three Technics class AA amps, fed from a DVD player with onboard DD/DTS decoders.....pretty damm good I thought!

    Now have a Sony VA555ES instead (retained the best AA amp for twin centre rears only), and......well......its just sooooo much better.:smashin:

    I reckon the Sony is far better at music (stereo performance) than the class AA's were......
    AV amps 'aint half got better since the war...:D

    depends on what you want to spend, an AV amp with preouts and you can still use current setup for stereo!
