    Hi Guys,

    I recently bought a Pannie E50 dvd recorder and my amp at the moment is the Sherwood 6090 RDS. I need to upgrade my amp so it decodes DTS etc. Does anyone have this amp (The Yamaha that is !) ? Any good?

    I also have Tivo and Sky and wondered if this will compliment the set up ? Many thanks. The amp is currently £219 at Richer.

    Hi Warnie
    The yamaha htr5550 is the silver version of the rxv530rds i owned the htr5540 and this was a great amp for the price so you wont go wrong with the 5550. this model has been superceded by the newer model which now have 6 built in amps instead of 5 if your not bothered about 6.1 get the yamy it will blow the sherwood in to the weeds.
    Cheers Gonzo.

    Had the Yamaha HTR5550 about a month now to replace my faulty 620, I have to say i,m well impressed with it. The Pro logic 2 decoder sounds crisp and clear and I am impressed with the power of the HTR5550, and I havent even cranked it up yet ! My neighbours are well impressed too !;) I bought the Yamaha Dvd 530 to go with it and they make a nice pair !
