    Hey All

    So I've been thinking about upgrading my Denon X4000 as I wanted to get the most out of my Monitor GX speaker system. I was originally looking at the AV8801 but that with the MM8077 is nearly 3k and although I could afford it I don't think I can justify spending that amount of money. So now I'm looking at the AV7701 with the MM8077 and also seen the anthem MRX 710. Basically I need some help as to whether upgrading will be worth it on a 2k budget and what you can recommend if it is worth it. Usage is about 70% movies 30% music.

    Thanks in advance

    Mrx510 with a mca30 will give you stunning performance. If 5.1 or 7.1 is all you are ever going to need then the anthem will do the job for you

    Can i be controversial and suggest you add a power amp instead. It will improve your soundstage nand make it more "forward". An ATI 1805 is less than 2k. Throw in a KKDXD808 sub and you're just over 3k
