Upgrade from RXV381


Distinguished Member
Some how managed to convinced swmbo that I need to upgrade my RXV381 for a newer model. Looking at the RXV685 which is about £450. Are there any other options I need to look at?

I need it to be dolby vision compatible, have preout for front L and R (so can run fronts through my yammie AS501), and likely atmos for some front upfiring speakers (reckon I can sneak some in in the future without being noticed). Originally looked at the marantz NR1609, but its a bit lacking in power. So what other options are there which are similar price point and meet my needs that I'm missing.
