New Amp to replace Onkyo TX-SR605
i currently have a samsung 40" LCD 5 series which i will upgrade in the future but for now i want a new amp to get ready for 4k and 3d and more hdmi inputs and also networking.
is the 609 the best amp for £400 at the moment? i popped into rayliehg hifi in chelmsford and he said that he doesn't rate them against denon's the new yamaha's and a canadian company which i forget the name.
i also want to stream through homeplugs music and movies through the amp if possible. i have an xbox 360, ps3 and foxsat hdr box which i want connected up to.
my surround speakers is a 5.1 tannoy FX set which i got for £170 a few yrs back but i'm not overly impressed with them. i may go down the route of floorstanders and nice centre with rears.
what would be a good setup for £600 inclusive that would beat what i have now? i listen to music via an ipod which sits on a dock station/speaker at present but will purchase a new record player in the future when i move home.
