Hi folks I thought you might like to know about the latest incarnation of my set up. As some of you may know I have a Yamaha DSPA 990 Amplifier that has been converted to 5.1 to which is connected a DD and a DTS Decoder. Well recently I decided to go the separate power amp route using the Yamaha as a pre amp. My local Richer Sounds reccommended the Cambridge P500 power amp as a suitable device. I was a bit sceptical as it was on offer at £99.95, reduced from £199.95 so not a high priced amp by any means. I connected it to the front pre-outs of the Yam' and switched on. All I can say is WOW the sound was awesome. So I promptly went out and bought two more P500s and connected up the remaining Pre outs. Great stuff and it also gives me a spare channel if I decide to go the EX route. So my advice is don't be frightened of by the low price of these amps. They're good!!
