Sony 1080 owners - replacing onkyo 608


Standard Member
Hi all. After a frustrating year of looking for a new tv unit to fit my onkyo 608 (that also meets my wife’s design criteria) I have given up and told her to buy whatever she wants and I’ll replace the AVR. So I need an AVR that fits a gap 16cm high and 35cm deep (loads of width so not an issue).

the Sony 1080 looks like it will work on paper - 15.6 high x 33.1cm deep - but keen to hear from owners if that’s accurate when you consider the antennas / binding posts etc? (There’s a few extra cm of height once you get past the tv unit outer frame so hopefully ok airflow... )

Alternatively feel free to suggest another model (Sony 790?)
