What do you prefer to get: Yamaha RX-A3010 vs RX-A1050


I have two Yamaha Aventage Receivers to choose from.

Yamaha RX-A3010
Yamaha RX-A1050

Used price for both units is about the same maybe a bit less for RX-A3010 due to age and not being an Atmos unit, but 9-channel instead of 7-channel amplification.

What would you guys prefer to get first?

High End RX-A3010 Flagship Top of the Line Receiver that is a bit older Burr-Brown DAC from 2011.

The newer mid-range Receiver RX-A1050 with Atmos and Bluetooth and ESS Sabre DAC from 2015.

Sound quality is my first priority.

Thanks for your input

Is used your only option, what's your budget? AVR's are quite complex pieces of kit and not known for their reliability. A long warranty is nice to have.
