Which would suit my speakers best????

Hi all,

I have sold my recent 2nd hand Yamaha RX-V1800 as it didn't do video/audio passthrough which is important as wife and nipper just want to watch tv without amp on or BD without amp on. 

So new choice would be Pioneer VSX2021 £499

Or Yamaha RX-A810 £549, speakers are in my sig. 

Any other recommendations for around £500 new or 2nd hand would be massively appreciated.

MUST PASSTHROUGH video/audio in STANDBY.

 

Many thanks for your continued support.

 

Darrell

Glad you managed to sell it, and I know, and you know how I know, where you managed to sell it!

How did you know I'd say that?! I thought I was being a little bit unpredictable there...  :grin:

i have the A-810, great bit of kit, highly recommend it. i have it with BX5's and i never cease's to amaze me when i play some good quality audio through it.

 

i also have the same issue of wife/child & kids tv etc, it works a treat not having to have the surround on just for my little lads tv!

Hi tj27

Nice one :clap: As i've often said Yamaha AV amplification + Monitor Audio speakers form a great match time after time :rockout:

Anyway i hope that you enjoy the performance of your system for many years to come Smile

All the best
