Good price for this from RS Clicky 5* in November, not group test winner but certainly worth an audition if this is your price range.
Was originally £500
Or if Denon is your bag how about the AVR 2113 for £249.95 Clicky was £549.95

That's interesting, I've got the (much) earlier STR930, wonder if this will be a step-up in sound quality rather than just additional functionality?
No signature worth mentioning...
I would say it would be a step up in performance from your STR930 and at £299 it's a great deal, must be worth a punt surely? You can always demo one first of course...may help make your mind up
Maybe but not this side of Christmas.
My advice.... BUY the Denon, I have the STR925, and while it has served me well for a number of years, Ive just got the AVR-2113 from RS, and so far its awesome, in comparison to the old Sony. It controls the Subwoofer much, much better, is incredibly easy to setup and use. The HDMI switching etc is great, and with Spotify available after a firmware update, its functionality is as good as the sound.
