    As per the title, can anybody recommend any AVR's around £200 - £350 mark that have pre out for the front two channels.

    You need to spend more. Probably £500/£600+

    But if you just need a AV pre, what about the Nakamichi AV1?

    The Yamaha RXV777 has pre outs and this is probably one 0f the cheapest receivers currently available to include them. The RXV777 will cost you about £450:

    There's also the Denon AVRX3100 for about £390:

    and the Marantz SR5009 for £380:

    I've found this one and this one so far, both under £300.

    Are they no good?

    The NR1504 only has pre outs for the front left and right channels (and sub). The Pioneer VSX924 again only includes front left and right pre outs.

    My bad, I only require pre outs for the front two channels and sub. I was sure I included that info in my OP, but clearly I didn't, sorry. I've edited the OP now.

    The Pioneer is technically a higher tier receiver than the NR1504, but the Marantz is very good in terms of its stereo performance given its size and does include Audyssey room EQ correction. It will lack some of the inputs and output found on the Pioneer due to its slimline design.

    There's also the slightly better spec's NR1605 which just comes in under your proposed budget:

    Thanks for all your help guys.

    We went and had a listen to several setups today, spending probably about 2 hours in the listening room, and I've ordered a Marantz SR5009.

    It sounded better than all the others to these ears.

    I'll let you know how I get on!

    Is it possible to disconnect the power to the SR5009 amp stages? To reduce power consumption and heat from the unit.
