Yamaha DSPAX620 vs DSPAX630SE



I had a DSP620 on my shopping list and thought I'd check out the Yamaha website to see if it was the latest model - whereupon I found the DXP630SE - its about an extra £100-£150 depending where you shop - but is it worth the extra cash? Has it superseded the 620 and does the extra investment make it a little more future proof?

Can anyone help me?

The 630 has prologic 2 which the 620 doesnt, it creates 5.1 sound from a stereo source, great for tv and video games.

(i think thats correct)

Dont know about much else as ive never looked at the 620


Cost an extra £100 for the 630 ( £296)

It has more features so yes its worth it.

I upgraded from the 620 to the 630 but in the end i didnt really notice a difference or think it worth it, so for anyone else considering that upgrade id say stick with your 620 for the time being, its a great amp.

But buying new i would say yes, youve got to get the 630 simply because its the newest model

Markster, what about upgrading from older Yamaha? I've recently got rid of my DSP A5 and am seriously considering DSP 630 or Pioneer 811. Will I notice enough difference from older amp to justify another Yamaha purchase?

I upgraded to the 630 from a two year old Sherwood amp (DD & DTS). All I can say is that it revolutionised my HC setup - absolutely gobsmacking perfomance compared to my older amp - Get it just to enjoy the DTS 6.1ES track on the extended FOTR (Don't know much about the Pioneer amp)
