How much are you gonna spend?? A couple of suggestions of the top of my head are:-
Yamaha rxv 1400
Yamaha rxv 2400
Pioneer AX5i
Harmon/kardon 8500

Always demo and have fun looking.


I want to spend between 200-300 pounds. THe ones you have suggested seem to be on the xpensive side.

Sony STR-DB790? Plenty of power, decent reviews in the press and I like mine. £230 @ Superfi.
