After much searching and countless demos,I managed to get a great deal ( i think so anyway!.. ) on a sony strda12000 home cinema amp. It was purchased last october for 450 euro ( about 310 stg ) with a monster bass cable for my sub, and monster home series hdmi cable ( for my ps3 ) chucked in for free, from my local retailer.Seemed like a good deal at the time....... no????
