The other half agreed to buying me a receiver for xmas, initially I was looking at a Denon AVR-1804, but unfortunately the too good to be true deal of £150 on one fell through. I was then pretty much set on an AVR-1705 at around £188 delivered, but have since read a few reviews that aren't keen on it's sound performance, and also I am worried that buying the bottom of the range receiever will leave me with upgraditis in the near future. But maybe not? Maybe I would be over teh moon with this amp, trouble is I can't demo it near me. Would I be better looking at the Marantz SR4400, or is this no better than the 1705 as it is lightly older technology? OR, is it worth spending the extra little bit and looking at say the AVR-1905 or Yam RX-V450, both avavilable around £223 delivered? I had a look at the RX-V450 at the weekend and was fairly impressed, and have read good reviews on this amp also, but some popel comment on Yam amps having a 'manufactured' sound, that is good with movies but not wirh music. I will be using this setup for both music and movies, prob about 50/50. I will be running Aegis Centre, with EVO 3's and EVO 1's. Any comments or help would be much appreciated.
