    Hi all,

    A friend has £350 to spend on a HC receiver. any suggestings?
    Denon AVR1803
    Yamaha RX-V730rds
    Pioneer - VSX0811

    Any others we should look at, and why?

    Personally, I have the Yammy so as I've not heard the others, I'm biased! But I am willing to consider the idea that the RXV730 may possibly not be the best that ever existed...:rolleyes:

    Thanks all!

    A friend has just bought the pioneer 811. Excellent piece of kit for movies although I must say that musically it just didnt have it.

    The only other problem with it was a nasty black remote control.

    But if its only for movies you want - give it an audition, you wont regret it.

    Denon 1803 ok for movies ok for music no pre outs so no connections to integrated stereo amp for music.

    Yamaha 630/730 nice for movies poor for music

    Pioneer 811 excellent for movies worse than yamaha for music. I've recently changed from a yamaha to a Pioneer (more to do with looks than anything else) & have it hooked up to a Rotel RA01.
