Denon, Yamaha or Sony?

Hi Everyone,

We currently own an STR-DN 860 which is more than enough in terms of quality but the lack of HDR and having to use splitters etc is becoming a little painful. We were looking at buying a newer receiver, I know things are all over the place in terms of HDMI version etc so I want to get an insight into which way to go.

We were looking at the following two;

Denon X1600H For about $720 Or the Sony STR-DN 1080 for about $890.
The other option is the Yamaha V6-A for about $850 which does have HDMI 2.1, I am somewhat versed in the current drama's this AVR is having with it's HDMI 2.1 compatibility along with the other bugs which worry me more so than the HDMI 2.1 issues.

Another thing to note is we use a Panasonic DX902b, which is one of the best TV's I have seen PQ wise so unless it fails in the next 5 years, I don't know if we'd upgrade.

*Note these are AUD prices

Thanks!
