    Hi Guys!

    I'm looking for a slim AVR 5.1, with good stereo sound quality and with good 5.1 sound quality.
    Could anybody recommend me one?
    Do you know any test?

    Thanks.
    Zsolt

    Your preference for a slim receiver limits your options to one of the following:

    Marantz NR1504 £400
    Marantz NR1604 £550
    Pioneer VSXS300 £210
    Pioneer VSXS500 £320
    Cambridge Audio Azur 351R £500


    I'd rate the Azur 351R as being the best option in terms of audio, followed by either of the Marantz models.

    What is your budget? What speakers do you have? Slimline receivers tend to be compromised in terms of sound quality for the price so if musical ability is really important then a full sized receiver will often be better.

    Hi!

    I have Dali Concept 6 series.
    And the actual AVR is Onkyo Tx-SR504
    What do you think is it worth to change the actual AVR?

    Thanks!
