Question Mini system upgrade option

Hi all. I am looking for suggestions for a receiver to replace a cheap JVC mini system. My listening is split between DAB, Bluetooth and internet radio as well as vinyl from an AT-LP120. CD is not that important to me but I’d definitely like the option to add a CD separate at a later time. Subwoofer our would also be a bonus. Speakers are Mission LX2s.

Would be great to know if anyone has any suggestions for something in the £200-£400 range. Cheers :)

Used Yamaha RN803? It has everything you want.

Given they're 500ish new in the UK, finding one used for 400 shouldn't be that difficult.

If you don't need to fill a huge space I'd see if you can get a listen to a Marantz MCR 611. Richer Sounds stock them together with your speakers so a demo shouldn't be too hard to arrange.

Hi thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately I’m quite far from a Richer Sounds so demo isn’t really an option. The Marantz looks good but the limited input options is making me want to pay a bit more for something else. I’ve pretty much decided it’s going to be either the RN803 or TX-8250 just can’t decide between them! Cheers.

I'd go for the Yamaha myself. It's room correction software is a big bonus.
