Fellow Audioholics,\n\nBeen a long time since I posted\/lurked here but I am back (with a larger budget!). I have some outdated gear and I'm ready to start upgrading. First on my list is an updated receiver as I'm working with a model not able to even do 4K passthrough.\n\nCurrent Setup:\n5.1\nMarantz SR5005\nDefinitive Technology Mythos STS Towers\nDefinitive Technology Mythos Seven\nDefinitive Technology ProMonitor 800\nSVS PB-12 NSD\n\nMy budget is roughly $2000 but willing to go above if it will further future proof me or is a significant increase in quality. This will be for multimedia use. Gaming with Ps5, surround sound and music. I likely will not be adding more speakers or incorporate Atmos so I'm really going for sound quality and being futureproofed.\n\nI have also heard great things about Dirac Live so have been favoring that functionality (or ability to upgrade). I'd say my largest questions center around how much power I need and how important Dirac Live is. \n\nMy receiver short list sits at:\n\nArcam AVR5\nAnthem MRX540\nDenon AVR3800H \nYamaha A4A\nYamaha A2A \nOnkyo RZ50\nDenon S970H (budget option)\n\nWould love to hear your recommendations!
