Replacing 20 year old Pioneer AV Receiver, XV-D222, suggestions


Novice Member
Hope you can all help with suggestions as to what to replace my 20 yr old Pioneer AV DV Receiver with. I expected to be able to go and buy a similar one incorporating a Blu-ray player to save space and remote controls, but these don't seem to be made now.

I've upgraded the system over the years and last year got a new LG - 49SM8200PLA 49" Smart 4K Ultra HD HDR LED TV. Its a big room but we use one half of it for the TV and audio, sitting about 4m away. The existing surround sound speakers are wired in, but shouldn't be a problem to replace with new.

I was previously using a PS3 to network stream from my home network drives, and play Blu-ray. However the LG connects well to the home network, but i still need DVD/ Bluray facility and was hoping to get rid of the PS3.

Budget is fairly open, the rest of my audio is all Cambridge Audio stuff, reasonably good budget system thats been updated over the years.

What facilities do I need and is it possible to buy one that does both?
