Replacing separates with receiver, need recommendations!


Active Member
Hi all,
I am currently running my HTPC's audio through a Asus HDAV1.3 deluxe sound card connected to a Krell kav250a amp, my speakers are B&W 805's.

I fancy a change and would like to simplify my setup so want to swap this soundcard/amp combo with an integrated 5.1 receiver.

As Onkyo receivers seem to be popular these days, do you guys have any suggestions for any particular model? The receiver will need to have fairly heavy duty amp modules as the B&W 805's are a difficult load. I am thinking that the 806 or 875 might be the best options but am unaware of the finer details.

Any recommendations guys? Budget £300-£500...
