As I mentioned in a previous post, I am in seek for a new receiver to replace my current Arcam AVR280. My 40's birthday is comming soon and I wanted to take the opportunity to make myself a present. The budget is 800 pound and I was originally looking at some of the modern receivers such as Martantz SR-7005 which ended up begin more expensive (around 1000). Then, I found a second hand offer of a Yamaha DSP-Z9 for 800 pound and I although it is a very old receiver, I am being tempted as it seem it was one of the best receivers at the time and the RRP was around 4000 pound.
Any thoughts about this DSP-Z9? Would it be better option than one of the 800 pound modern receiver?
