I've just spoken to AVLand and had to cancel my order for a Denon 1706. AVLand advertised it as having up-conversion to component but it turns out that Denon have changed the spec for the UK market so that it's conversion is the same as the 1705. This also applies to the 1906 which also DOES NOT do up-conversion to component. The guy at AVLand recommended the Yamaha RX-V657 or DSP-AX757SE which do upconversion to component. My question is what are the major differences between these two Yamaha's (apart from the obvious lack of a radio in the latter)? They are about £100 different in price. Is the £100 worth spending?
