Hi all,

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.

Having trouble finding the Yamaha unit online.

Can anyone tell me what the Onkyo TXNR509B is like?

Seems to tick the boxes and 3D capable, so future proofed in that regard.
