spectacularly off topic and a huge question. Suggest you try to google beginners guide to home cinema and start from there.

Any home cinema experts on that can say how good this is compared to others around this price?

AV Receivers provide the following functionality:

1. Decodes digital sound to analogue. The digital formats supported will be specified in the specifications. You may be interested to know that this receiver decodes the digital sound used in Blu Ray films (Dolby True HD and DTS Master).
2. Provides switching of audio and video inputs.
3. Amplifies sound from connected separate components.
4. Possible upscaling of video with or without image processing.

Should be "easy as PI"!

This will basically take both video and sound from several sources and output it to TV and surrond sound speakers. THis along with a set of 5.1 speakers basically do the same job as the one box surround sound systems you see advertised. Getting an av reciever and sound decent speakers will ,even at entry level, usually get you better results than a one box surrond sound solution - all about your budget really.

As above think you need to be a bit of research elsewhere really as there is a lot to think about if your starting from scratch as it were . . .

this does get pretty good reviews and at this price does offer great value for money - there's a newer model come out which is why this has dropped in price. I've been looking for a decent AV amp for a while that does upconversion and HD audio and comes in below 300 and this is the first that has caught my eye. This also has some great Ipod connectivity features so if you plan to directly connect your ipod this may appeal over others around this price point.

What is your budget?

It might be better for you to look at Blu-Ray home cinema in a box solutions, which has the amp, speakers and source (BR player) all in one box.

something like that would be a good starting point but it doesnt decode high definition sounds. You'll need to spend a little more if you want those.

I had a logitech Z5500 for 3 years and i recenlty kept the same speakers but replaced the amp with the Yamaha 667 and its amazing the difference its made with just regular DTS soundtracks, HD is awesome!

thats got good reviews and decoes all the latest HD sounds

Nice spot BigDannyB!

No surcharge for Northern Ireland deliveries either. The buy now, pay later option is particularly good for getting this purchase past my other half!

Thanks a million for this.

How does this compare to the Sony 810 amp?

Cheers

Sony gets very good reviews at its price point - but to be fair the pioneer is pitched above the entry level range of the sony. The sony is pretty new and is at 280 where as the pioneer was 500 when first released - I think you are getting more bang for your buck with the pioneer.

I have one connected to my KRP500a and all I can say .. its the dogs conkers , it powers my B&W surround sound system as well as my 360/ps3, sat system..

Oh nuts. I just bought a Pioneer 920 and Pioneer BDP 333 dvd player for £560. Would it be better to go for tone he 919 or just keep what I've got. New one has Blutooth for Iphone and the new app to run it etc. Running it through Jamo A102 surround sound system and dont know if I should take it back and get this. Any ideas how they differ and if I should return and buy the old model?oO

if you have a later model - I'd suggest keeping it - you'll need the features in the future and I'd rather pay more to get the latest stuff than get something a year old. Really depends on how much your budget is and how much you want to spend...

1080p upscaling for £280!!! I'd buy one today if I didn't have a mid-range Denon

Personally I think you should keep what you have, not for any technical reason, just because it'd show at least an ounce of respect for the retailer you bought it off...

I had a friend like you, he managed to make a £250 birthday gift last about 5 years by taking things back to shop after a week or two of using them and either something new, different or better came out, or he got bored. Personally I think it takes massive liberties with retailers no-quibble return policies when people return stuff for non-genuine reasons, and means the retailers have to sell it on as second hand, which eats into their profits, my ex-friend was eventually banned nationwide from richer sounds. At the end of the day, it's people taking advantage of generosity that wear it out.

Besides, in a months time, when a new amp comes out, or the price drops again (as it always does with technology) are you going to swap it again?

Anyway rant over, and like I said stick with what you've got, stop looking for something better and just enjoy a perfectly decent home cinema setup.....
#22
Mmmmm Bradford doc you do make sense. It was just because it was my 1st set up and didnt really know what I was getting. It's all still sealed in the box but nether the less I find myself in agreement with you. Anyway, the Blu Ray is costing £300 brand new and seen for 280 so I have still made a big saving. Wasn't sure if these dedicated blu players are better than a PS3 to play discs but it does say its ethernet connectivity so I don't see why it wouldnt update over the net. Telly is Pionner but 1080i I hope it doesn't matter too much I have been told that my Pioneer TV is still awesome and still better than a lot of newer ones so should perform very well. Can't wait to see if this true!!!!;)

I am tempted even though I know I would rarely turn it on!

Just from memory, does your 920 support HDMI 1.4, and the 919 only 1.3? Maybe yours supports 3D TV switching? I have not checked, so don't take any of this as gospel, it's too early!

I know nowt about AV amps. Are there evening classes I can go on like: 'how to talk about AV amps like a pro'?
Perhaps I'll have to resign myself to the fact that I am not worthy to be on this thread...
:(

Just work on what you are wanting to experience and then look into what can provide that - I previously wanted 5.1 surround sound amp and looked at the best option at the time and got an amp and speakers. Now I wanted to upgrade my set up to HD sound from my PS3 - my speakers are decent tannoy ones so I just need to upgrade the amp. So I looked around for the best features in my budget that provided HD sound and got decent reviews. Thats where this pioneer amp came in as I reckon it was the best option for my 300 quid budget.

budget is the biggest thing - once you know that they'll be 2-3 that will stand out as the best performers within your budget. Just be careful cos you can always spend more and obviously get better results - you can get some unhelpful recommendations that are always outside of your budget.

Darn shame the mrs didn't come with a 'no-quibble returns policy', would've been nice to get a new model every few weeks. :p

60 grand upfront (wedding) and still paying out the nose for an old model (not that she was a model in the first place). :D
