[UK] Recommendation for second-hand AV Receiver with all modern formats


Novice Member
Hi everyone.
I am looking for an upgrade for my av receiver, as my current avr can't process common Dolby formats which gives me a problems in plex in other stream apps.
My setup:
TV: sony 75xh9005
AVR: Sony str-db930
center: b&w cc3
L/R Front: Tannoy Mercury M4
L/R Back: Tannoy Mercury M1

I am watching all media via built in TV apps so I don't think I will need a send any video signal to receiver apart from pure sound via HDMI because SPDIF doesn't work on modern formats like atmos etc.
I am also playing on PS5 but due to quite problematic and expensive feature of 120hz/4k in AVR world I am expecting to passing through the sound signal PS5 > TV > AVR rather than PS5 > AVR > TV as I will loose 4k/120hz.
In the future I would like to buy a ceiling-firing atmos speakers.

I am looking for decent and budget friendly (£200-£300; the less the better) second hand AV receivers so I would really appreciate any model recommendations or even links to auctions. I am based in South East England.
