The Sony would probably be the best tonal equivalent to your current receiver since both are considered bright sounding.
All the receivers you mention are good so if there is a particular feature you like on one that is not on the others then this could be the deciding factor. Try to listen to them to see if one of them suits your personal preferences more.
I have a Sony 1040 and love it. I use it for TV through Sky HD box, Bluray and listening to music on vinyl and through Airplay. Had it for 3 months, and it has been hustle free fun! Also some very good deals to be had now that the 1050 is superseding it.
Its actually about £100 more than the RXV775, but this rewards you with an AV receiver that equates very closely to similar Yamaha products that would cost you about £1K. Which would you determine as being the better value for money option, the RXV775 which closely resembles the RXV675 or the RXV1073 which is for all practical purposes an RXA1020 without the anti resonance features associated with the Adventage models?
I bought this from Harvey norman had it a month then it stopped working , took it to get fixed needed a new mainboard
anyway i just got it back and have set it up as per the manual , i can when i YAO all speakers work even the subwoofer But then when i play the tv or dvd i only get sound on one side and the subwoofer and middle and left side speakers don;t work at all .
Any ideas on what is wrong would be appreciated
