The ht-790 soundbar brand new is only £30 more with Currys. May just play it safe with them.
I have a pioneer vsx-1131 which is excellent and i used it with 5.1.2 Atmos but decided to upgrade to Marantz sr6012 as I want to make it 5.1.4 with my 500watt sub and make it future proof with hlg and Dolby Vision. I'm also slowly increasing my atmos blu-ray/4k collection
A bit special, this.
I was toying with buying that receiver the other day. Thing is I don't have atmos speakers, I just have 5.1, not 7.2... And I dont live in a mansion. So Im stuck wondering what difference that amp will give me vs a £180 Pioneer one. Noting I already have multiple smart sources so the streaming element isnt needee.
