So my Technics amp bit it. Almost 500.00 to repair ain't worth it. So I find my self looking for a new amp. Here's what I've got to hook it up to: Technics LSPD988 CD Changer (RCA) JVC XV511BK DVD Player (RCA/SVid Component/Optical) Explorer 8300 Cable PVR box (RCA/SVid) The DVD player will likely be upgraded in the future, however the best input that the TV has is SVideo. It's a 36" Sony. Still not time to replace it yet, so I want the amp to be able to have an SVid monitor output, and component switching for the future. I've got all the speakers I need and a powered Sub, and I'd like it to be able to run the B channel (outside on the deck speakers) at the same time as the A. Front spkrs are B&W towers. Center is B&W. Sub is an 10" paradigm. Rears and B channel right now are Koss indoor/outdoor but they will be changed in the near future. Any suggestions? Right now I seem to be partial to the Yamaha RX-V457 (449.00 CDN) seems to have what I need + some room for the future (ie: component in/outs once I upgrade the TV), but I may want something cheaper.
