    I'm looking for an AV Receiver to replace my old Sony DAVS550 with a budget of up to £400 MAX but could do with spending something around £350 if poss.

    Looking on this forum, I only seem to see the words Onkyo 605 everywhere - is this the only thing to go for within this price bracket? If not, what other good alternatives are there?

    My current setup is:

    Sam 1080p 40" M86 - Xbox 360 Elite (HDMI) - Sky+ (soon to be HD) - HTPC (HDMI)

    I would also like this to be for my music listening too as well as movie audio.

    Onkyo seems to be the choice at the moment due to it's spec and price.

    Or the Sony STR-DG910? (I'm biased...)

    This is one that has caught my eye. Just trying to work out what the Onkyo has over the Sony 910 and whether it is worth the extra money.

    What main features does the Onkyo have over the Sony?

    The main feature thats not present on the sony is the TrueHD audio capability, this is the reason why i'm planning on getting the Onkyo 605
