AV Receiver upgrade advice

Good Morning all,

Currently in the market for a new AV receiver. As is always the case the array of current offers is making my decision pretty difficult. I use the amp most for TV/movies but do also enjoy listening to music. I will be pairing it with a Tannoy Arena 5.1 speaker system.

I am currently considering the following options:-

Yamaha RX-V673 available at £449
Pioneer VSX-922 available at £239
Onkyo TX-NR515 available at £249

Any comments or feedback would be greatly appreciated. I think the Yamaha would probably win in a straight shoot out if they were at the same price but given the reduced prices on the Pioneer and Onkyo I'm less convinced!

Thanks,

Ben

This will be vastly superior to all of them:

Thanks,

That's a tough one! On paper, Denon 2313 is a class above Yamaha RX-A810. I prefer Yamaha's sound, but have not directly compared it with the Denon. Denon has more features (AirPlay etc.) if that is I important for you.
