I could use some advice on a good choice for an AV reciever with DLNA built in.
Ideally I would like to keep the cost of the recevier under $1,500.
A bit of background ...
I have partial hearing loss, so top notch sound is wasted on me, but I do enjoy listneign to music and watching movies.
I would like a receiver I can use with: - - Sony Bravia with freeveiw HD built in (via HDMI) - Blue ray player (via HDMI) - DLNA server NAS (Via CAT-x cable) - MySky HDI at some stage in the future (via HDMI?)
I have front and centre speakers - Wharfdale Diamond 9 series. I will be adding a sub-woofer and rear speakers, when we re-do the lounge, so 5.1 sound would be enough.
My favourite would have to be the Yamaha RXV671. It will not only tick all the boxes, it's also easy to use - with quite possibly the best GUI I've come across at the price point. I haven't managed to play with the DLNA side of things, but the product blurb seems to say it will do what you're looking to achieve.
