    Both of these AV amps (Onkyo TX-NR616 or Yamaha RX-V673) are currently available for under £300.

    Any opinion which would be best suited to a large room (14 x 20ft) and driving Tannoy Signature Revolution speakers in 5.1 or 7.1 setup?

    Thanks in advance

    The Onkyo tx-nr818 is available for £500, it was a £1000 amp as opposed to the other Onkyo and Yamaha being originally £500, all have had 5star reviews but feel these are sometimes dished out too easliy, does anyone have knowledge if this is worth the extra for using with the Tannoys?

    not worth the extra dude....i always says that for below 500£ some AVR's are very good and 90% of people will not hear a difference with a 1500£ amp...why do people like to waste money ???

    That depends on what you are using the product for, in this case with speakers worth in excess of £2000 (as a 5.1 set up) with a 50% split for music /movies it is important to find an amp that can preform well with music and to do the speakers justice!
