    i'm thinking of upgrading my av receiver as I have just re-done my cinema room, got new (2nd had Jam0 D6 THX ultra) speakers and just order a new monolith subwoofer.

    My room is 13ft x 11ft, I'm using it pretty much solely for movies. I'm thinking about the Onkyo 818 (can be picked up for £599), is it a worthy upgrade, would I notice much difference to the yamaha? any other alternatives?

    The Onkyo is basically the same level as your current Yamaha, if not a little bit lower than it, so I do not see it being any kind of upgrade in terms of sound quality. Also Yamaha will probably be a better tonal match to your new Jamo speakers than an Onkyo although a lot will depend on your personal sound preference.
