I was looking to buy a Sony STR-DA555ES. Currently I have a Sony STR-DH820. My dad has the 555ES and I think it sounds much better than my Sony. On ebay the 555ES goes for around £200. Great I thought! But I then remembered that I use my amp as a HDMI switch and I run my PS3 and other HDMI devies through it for the sound etc. The 555ES doest have this.
So my question is, what other amp can I upgrade to which will give me 555ES quality and HDMI support for low money?
