Hi everybody!

I need some help. I'm building my first HT. I want to buy a decent amplifier and basic speakers. Later on I will update my speakers. I will build a 5.1 -system. My living room size will be 18 square meters. The ratio between movies and music would be around 70%:30%.

I have searched several forums and I've ended up with these amps:

- H/K avr 230
- Yamaha RX-V650
- Sony STR-DB790QS (European model)

NOW. I need Your advice. Which model would You select and why? Please tell me your own experiences rather than what you've heard...

Thanks!

In my personal experience (not something I read about in textbooks or other mags) I find HK to sound the most musical with a warm laidback sound while both Yamaha and Sony tend to sound a bit lean and analytical. You should listen to the choices in your own system to see what suits your tastes because everyone listens differently.

My 2 cents.
