And the answer is ... it depends.

It depends on what you want out of the amp, eg

What features are you looking for?
What speakers do you want to use?
Do you want 6.1 or 7.1?
How much do you want to spend?
Will it be used solely for home cinema, or music too?

The Sony, Marantz, Denon (1804 replaces 1803) and Yam (is that an old model?) are all fine amps, but everyone has their own preferences?

The best thing to do is to draw up a shortlist (which you've pretty much got), and get some demos.




i will use JBL SCS-140 Speaker Set (5+1)

i will add an extra Center for rear as 6.1

i generally use for home cinema,

i listed some receiver above because i can buy them nerarly same price, i saw some comparision Sony DB790 and Denon 1804 was the winner for sound quality , and Marantz sr4400 was the worst .
