Just bought one from Weymouth HiFi to replace my old Yamaha amp. This is a great deal as most are £349 Richer Sounds are the same price but i don't think you get 2 yr warranty plus you need to go to a local store.

You can also choose the color and i got a Black one.

Ordered yesterday morning and came this morning, excellent service so far.

You do need to phone them though as they dont do online ordering.

I'd like to replace my Yammy AX620 which is getting on a bit, but runs cool in a cabinet. Does anyone know if this amp gets hot?

Mine is at the bottom of a stack, 4 things on top. There is another stack on one side and a wall 3” away on the other side. It gets warm but not hot, it’s on for 3 to 4 hours a day then on standby the rest of the time

thanks, what would be a good budget to have on a set of reasonable speakers would be a shame to murder the quality with rubbish speakers.

I just got one of these a week ago and it's great.

I plumped for the Boston Acoustics Soundware XS speakers which sound fantastic.

Best Buy have them super cheap at £279.99 and they are currently giving 20% back via Quidco/TCB making them a super bargain!

The Boston Aucoustics have great reviews too.

Something like http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/page/moreinfo.cfm/Product_ID/7428 would probably work out pretty well for you.

[edit] or http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/page/moreinfo.cfm/Product_ID/6739 looks good, perhaps plus a pair of 10.1's to replace the fronts and go 7.1 if you have the space/desire [/edit]

They probably do, but I'd advise going a little meatier if you can personally. There's a real danger of wanting to upgrade pretty quickly from a little sub/sat package like that.

I *personally* wouldn't go smaller than the QA2000's or wharfedale diamond 9 or 10's. Appreciate there's a fair price difference though.

Well having watched a few films with them now, they seem more than competent, they are seriously impressive.

I guess if you have the room and you don’t mind massive speakers then go for larger ones, but I can guarantee you, they sound plenty meaty!

Oh, trust me I did, mine dwarf the QA's, floorstanders all round ;) Obviously not a great call if you're in a flat etc though.

I bought my first Yamaha Theatre Amp about 10 years ago. I was advised to buy B&W LM1's to wall mount for front speakers and some smaller B&W's for the surround sound. I have a B&W centre speaker and Yamaha Subwoofer. The reason I recommend B&W is that last year one of the coils blew in the front left Speaker. Rang B&W and they told me how to test the speaker and then I gave them the serial number of the speaker and they made an identical coil for it and sent it out for something like £47 from memory. Replacement Yama V767 amp can only be turned up to minus 2.0 (That means the sound is still not applified!) before the windows rattle.

Whatever speakers you buy make sure you use decent speaker cable, it makes a huge difference, but do not spend £100's on cable, only a real pro can tell the difference on really high end cables and then you are into the realms of marble speaker beds and speaker spikes, which are just not necessary for a normal home theatre set up.

See what B&W's are like now as I don't know if you can get the LM1's anymore.
#18
B&W are obviously a great choice if you have a decent sized budget. 683's at the front, 685's at the back...
#19
M1's are a near enough replacement for the LM1's. With the right Amp can still rattle your fillings and mine are fine in an 8m x 5m room, I personally cannot see the need for anything bigger for a theatre sound system. As I said, I cannot get my amp up to amplified level with these B&W's and they are such a superb sound.

£120 each. Bargain for the sound you get - trust me. Try and find some reviews of them, or go and listen to them in-situ. Midlands here if you want a demo!

Too rich for my blood. only double the output power of the M1's but 5 times the price and 5 times (or more!) the size.... Wall mount the M1's, hide the cable behind some quadrant or beading stuck in the corner with no nails and all is hidden and neat.

How big is your room????? or are you 500 yards from your neighbours!

lol, mine too unfortunately it seems... I did consider it for a while but couldn't justify the cost sadly. But size/output power isn't any lower, just perhaps not quite as 'refined'.

If you're interested I got these http://www.recommendedbuys.co.uk/electronics/speakers-and-subwoofers/wharfedale-xarus-xr-5000.htm - they're an older model and the only place I know that had any were Hughes Direct. I took their last pair for my rears, though apparently they seem to keep pulling these out of somewhere. But essentially, a £450 speaker for as low as £150, which is why I couldn't justify the B&W's. These are great IMO, much better than anything you'll find sub-£400 I suspect.

They do take a little room though :) nb - they do perform more than adequately at 'reasonable' volume for home cinema use, despite the tag line

Yeah best buy had this over Christmas for £279 but that was Titanium
#24
And hiway had this for £259 on 31st Jan which RS pricematched when I bought mine the same day but seeing as neither of those options are available then this deal same as Rs current price. I believe warranty is 2yrs from yamaha anyway but I took out 5yr one for £25.90 at rs

I went for this amp and the Boston Acoustics in white. What are the recommended settings for this combination for movies and some music playing?

Thanks for the heads up on Best Buy. Was about to get these for 269.99 from RS but at £220 if cashback tracks then result. Look like an excellent set up to please me for sound and the wife for unobtrusive looks...!

You should pick up the Sony STR-DH810 from Richer Sounds, at £250 i think that's a bloody good deal! HDMI passthrough is very useful to.

It is a good price - listened to both the Yamaha and the DH810 nad the Yamaha was just that little bit better soundwise. I am a bit of a Sony fanboy and with a Bravia and BD370 it took a lot to make me choose the RX-V667. Plus you get an onscreen GUI and the ability to switch inputs on standby with passthrough. No regrets so far.

Are you talking about the Yamaha in this deal mate, the RX V667?

Yep - I got the Yamaha RX-V667 for £299.99 plus the 5 yr cover for extra 29.99 from RS.
Just remember on any amp if you have Sky you need to run an optical cable from the box to the amp to get Dolby. On this model run it to AV4 optical input and using the onscreen menu change the audio input from HDMI to AV4 for whichever port you connect Sky. Easier to do than describe!

Ok. I recommed some speakers for this. It will help you hear it.
#34
Changed my mind, looking for a Onkyo 607 second hand. Cheers for the advice though guys :).
#35
Onkyo....... who are they?
#36
The choice of speakers really depend on whether you want a good hifi or home cinema or best compromise between the two
