    I would go with the denon as its better value with newer technology and processing than the old model Yamaha. Look at the £315 rxv-650 instead if its within your budget.

    £315 might be pushing it a bit, poeple seem to speak highly of marantz AV especially if music is a factor I guess I'll be 70% movies 30% music.

    How about the Sr4400?

    How much is your budget?? You might be better looking at the new 4500

    Pioneer 814. Good for movies and ok with music.

    Yamaha rxv550
    http://www.superfi.co.uk/index.cfm/page/moreinfo.cfm/Product_ID/1927

    www.petertyson.co.uk have the Marantz 4400 for £179 and hte 4500 for £319.IMHO I think you would be better off with the Denon than the marantz 4400.

    Since I don't want to start a new thread could you share your impressions about the stereo performance of the 1905. I am sure it manages multichannel sources perfectly, but still couldn't find any description of it's stereo capabilities (at least not from somebody who owns the receiver and has tested in home conditions).
