Looking for a mid range amp to upscale 4k to my new TV.
Will the amp upscale all HD sources ig media player, Blu ray and Sky. If so is the picture better than just feeding direct to my TV?

You don;t really need the AV receiver to scale lower resolution content and your 4K TV will scale lesser resolutions up to 4K in order for the image to fill the TV's screen. You can in fact be introducing undesirable artifacting ans other anomalies by scaling the video with the low budget scalers included wthin AV receivers. Whichever mid range AV receiver you buy, the results will not be anything worth shouting about and will be no better than the scaling your TV can do for itself.
