    I have been searching this forum for previous threads but I cannot find the answer that I’m looking for.

    I currently have a Yamaha RXV540 receiver, however I am hoping to upgrade it. I need some help with the following alternatives, unfortunately I won't be able to audition them before I buy.

    Will I notice am improvement with the following, or are they just a direct alternative to my current Yamaha?

    Denon 1804
    Marantz 5400
    Pioneer 812
    Onkyo 500 or 501


    Will these receivers offer a marked improvement over my current Yamaha? Are they comparable to each other?

    Pioneer 912
    Marantz 7400
    Denon 2803
    Yamaha 740
    Onkyo 600 or 601

    Are there any others that i should be considering?

    The receiver will mostly be used for watching SKY and playing DVD's with occasional music usage.
