Replacement amp


Established Member
So my current av receiver has developed a fault and will require sending away to be fixed. I'm waaaaaay to impatient to wait for it to be repaired, so I'm looking for a replacement ASAP!!! It's primarily for use with films, and I want something that will work with my Dali zensor speakers. It needs ideally to have 2 hdmi outputs for my proj/tv. I like the yamaha's - the a1010 looks like a bargain, also the a810. I know the a1020 and a820 are due out next month but as I say I'm need something ASAP! The new features of the v673 and v773 are interesting, the dialogue lift and subwoofer trim. Unfortunately the v773 isn't out yet and the 673 doesn't have 2 hdmi outputs. Any other suggestions??

The RXV763 is several years old now and I'm surprised you can even find a new one still in stock anywhere?

Look at lasts years RXV771. This is the model the RXV773 replaces:

Another option would be the Marantz SR6006. Again, last years model and now replaced by the SR6007. but still a viable option with a better price than that of the SR6007:
Marantz SR6006

Anything above these or maybe the Yamaha RXA810 would be pointless given your speakers. You'd be buying amps that deserve better speakers and there'd be nothing to be gained by spending more on the amp.
