    What's your AV Amp/Set up?

    Hiya Folks!
    Just curious as to what kind of setups the good folk here are running?
    I'll start the ball rolling, I have a Sony STR-DG910 amp in a 5.1 setup.
    I'm using a Technics DV290 Fronts/Centre/Rears speaker setup that I has served me many's a year and still give(To my ear at least) a stunning sound.
    I have cheated a little by mounting my centre speaker inside the wooden Fire Surround directly under my TV Which not only hides the speaker but gives a lovely Timbre/reverb to the speech!
    My Subwoofer is a powered Yamaha(model escapes me at the moment)
    All in all its a lovely balanced audio setup with a fantastically clear sound.

    So folks.....Whats ye got?

    I have 2 amp's both same brand, old skool one and a little more update one, i got both for less than £20 each lol.
    The other amp i have is boxed away as it has more gadgets, this is it here, well another one same model lol
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Sherwood-Newca...item4157d5bbb3.
    Currently i am using a Sherwood RD-6318R receiver, which i only have 2 x 500 watt Eltax millennium free standing speakers.
    Sound via optical cable.
    I hate the surround sound speakers, my setup is perfect for movies games etc, the rear surround just gets annoying and not needed.
    I only have it on when watching a movie or on cod mw2 as you can hear every detail of sound, not bad for a cheap setup, thou the speakers when new were £150, older amp was retail of £1000, current using amp approx £300 and setup still to this day looks right with my other entertainment equipment.
    To me Sherwood/Sherwood Newcastle are and most likely still one of the best makers for amps

    @ maxwell4321

    what can i say mate the amp is truly amazing i guarantee you wont regret it, plus you get all the added progs, networkable, ipod dock, bluetooth, and on and on it goes, thats' the 83 the others are equally as good but maybe not as well speced.

    get some decent speakers and the audio world will be your oyster
