    Hi folks,
    Our much loved but truly ancient Arcam AVR 300 has finally given up the ghost. I’m looking for a recommendation for a new replacement. Our speaker systems are Linn Keilidh and Linn Turkan and I’d have to be able to use the same connectors on the new device. Please can anyone help identify a suitable model, ideally not more than £1000, unless it’s a humdinger . Thanks in advance.

    If it helps I replaced a wonderful AVR300 for the Nakamichi AV1/AVP1 combo and have now given up thinking of scratching that itchy next upgrade. Did replace my speakers though to utilise the extra oomph!

    Arcam AVR 300 has the old component connections etc, no HDMI.

    The picture below is the Arcam AVR 390 which is £2K so outwith your budget but it lets you see what has happened. Prevailing connection is HDMI nowadays. Older connections no longer supported.

    It would help if we knew what is connected to the receiver and how.
