Hi, hope you can help a newbie... Just moved house and have at last got my own den for the XBOX360. Room size is 9'6" square, and the system will be mostly for games and the odd standard DVD movie through the 360. Hope to eventually add a PS3 when they bring out some decent games, and then I might venture into BlueRay, etc..... (also got an original XBOX, PS2, PS1, Dreamcast, etc to hook-up). The set-up will be the new Panny 37" LCD and the Q-Acoustics 1010i Home Cinema 5.1 package - now just the amp..... Started off with a choice between the Onkyo 505 and the Denon 1708 - the Denon has been recommended over the Onkyo by a reputable dealer (shop and net dealer).... yet it's the Onkyo that's getting the best reviews - or is this just a "fashion thing" - with Onkyo just the 'in brand' of the moment.... or.... should I spend the extra £100 and go for the Onkyo 605.....??????? or something else around £400 like the Denon 1908....? If I go up to the 605 will this amp be too powerful for the intended speakers.......??? The more I look, the more confused I get....?!!! - HELP and the more expensive it's getting too! Kind regards, Damian .... and thanks to all who reply!
