    Default Entry level amp

    Hi Folks,

    My step son's mate is looking for an entry level cinema amp. Any suggestions?

    He's also looking for floorstanders. Again, any suggestions?

    He doesn't have a lot of cash.

    I've got a Yamaha 495a cinema amp that I could let go cheap. Also got Mission 773e, 77c and 77ds that were going on ebay in the new year if he's interested.

    Cheers Jon, yes, I suggested the same thing, but thought I'd ask about what's decent at entry level as I don't know much about cinema stuff.

    I'd have suggested some older 5.1 cinema amp a while ago & let the DVD/BD player decode the audio But having heard the Oppo BD95 with it's full conversion of DTS-MA & Dolby True HD I'm not so sure

    I was still happy with what the older kit did & if you are looking at a few hundred pounds then you won't do a lot better... Unless you are lucky & find an amp that'll decode it but won't do 3D That's a distinct possibility as some people just gotta have all the bells & whistles

    I'd suggest patience, ebay & a good look at reviews of promissing equipment


    There are always bargains to be had if you take your time

    Cheers Mark, but he's just a young lad and doesn't have a lot of money to spend. Mark's offer looks like a bit of a bargain I think.
