Check out a used Classe SSP-300 (if you only need single-ended) or SSP-600 (if you have balanced inputs and/or outputs). The sound on this processor is amazing. Have you considered upgrading your TV first to get 720p/1080i/1080p input capabilities via component, DVI-D and/or HDMI? It seems like staying with a monitor that only allows S-Video and Composite and upgrading sound-only may be a path worth considering alternatives for...my 2 cents. The SSP-300 and SSP-600 have all the video transcoding you would want for your current setup (no HDMI). The new SSP-800 (not available used as yet) has even more for the future. I've owned the SSP-600 and loving the units video passthrough and both HT and balanced bypass audio quality very much.
