    Im having such a tough time deciding, based on a price vs performance factor. Ive kinda narrowed it down to this list. Any other suggestions in same price range are welcome. These are aussie prices.


    Sony STR-DB790 - $680 (does anyone know the audio dac in this?)
    Yamaha RXV-450 - $650
    Pioneer VSX-814 - $730


    Marantz SR4400 - $950 (or wait for 4500?)
    Yamaha RXV-550 - $900
    Denon AVR-1705 - $800 (hasnt come out yet)
    Sony STR-DB795 - approx $900 (hasnt come out yet)
    Harman Kardon AVR-230 - $950
    Cambridge Audio 540r - $1100

    I am interested in both movies and music, probably 75% movies 25% music. Its for a medium sized bedroom.

    I would be partnering it with Sony 3-way floorstanders and sony surrounds, with a 150w sub from a diy company.

    Any advice would be much appreciated!

    Cheers.

    I believe the 1905 also has video up-conversion to component if that's of use!
