hi,
im new to this forum, jus purchased a pair of B&W 602 speaker currently running them of a rotel RA-611, and am looking to upgrade

ive been looking at the yamaha 757 or even the newer 759, considering the denon 2805.

Got a budget of around £400/450.

What was the problem driving them with Rotel RA-611?

The amps you mentioned are AV amps, do you want a surround sound amp or a stereo amp?

If stereo music is you priority dont bother with a surround amp, you will get much better 2 channel performance from a cheaper stereo amp.

In fact you are probably getting better performance in stereo mode from your Rotel than you would get from either of these AV receivers. If you really feel the need to upgrade and wish to remain in the stereo realm, why not look at a newer 2-channel Rotel amp or if your amp has pre-outs, look at adding a power amp/s to the mix.
