Matching an AV receiver for B&W 684 speakers
Hi All,I've recently made my first step into the AV world.
I just bought a pair of B&W 684 floor standing after some research and several listens. I've also got a new Onkyo 616 because it seems to be a good match. Now I'm reading tons of negative review about the 616 and it's reliability issues and am considering changing my decision.
My alternatives are:1)Marantz SR5007 with an addition of £165 2)Yamaha RX-V 773 with an addition of £2503)Yamaha RX-V A820 with an addition of £3004)Stay with the Onkyo NR 616 - no addition
I will be going to the shop audio soon and give each a listen before I decide but would like to get some advice in order to help me make up my mind.
Priorities in decreasing order:1)Best match to speakers.2)Value for Money3)Other, non-audio direct-related features (Connectivity, Video, Interface etc..)4)Unit design and shape.
