New AV Receiver


Standard Member
Hi All,
Sorry - long post.

I'm looking to replace my old Sony STR1080 with something better and newer.

I have a slightly odd speaker setup.
I had a Mission FS1 setup. But the Sub and dialog speaker failed.
So now the front speakers are my ancient but wonderful Rega ELA (Mk1:love:), with a Wharfedale sub and a Monitor Audio Radius centre.
The remaining FS1s are used for the rear (2) and side (2) effects.
Sounds an odd mix but works well.
Audio is provided by Sonos. It was my old Arcam 270 CD and 290 Amp, but the convenience and quality of the Sonos won out in the end.

Video is an LG BD390 Blu Ray player and Sky+HD.
TV is an old Panasonic 42PX70BA, but for movies I have an Epson TW5000 projector.

So I'd like the amp to have 2 HDMI out.

Cool running (relatively) would be a bonus.
Plus a decent sound on audio.

So I'm looking at:
Onkyo TXNR709
Yamaha RXV771
Marantz SR6006

I'd love an Arcam 400, but I think I'd need new speakers and it only has 1 HDMI output. Oh yes and the cost...

I'd appreciate any advice on the relative up/downs of this lot, or any alternatives I may have missed.
Thanks a lot
