recently bought an onkyo nr686 to replace a conked out denon avr-3310. Just a decent amp to power the existing HT system.

Sure, the sound quality and built quality lose out, coming from a denon 3000 series but considering my low usage and that my 2 previous denon 3000 series also spoilt after a few years, I decided on this cheaper model and plus there was a sale going on, could be clearing last year's model. Think the new one will be nr696.

anyway, my new avr has 7.2 sound, wlan, bluetooth and some built in apps like spotify etc, similar to current crop of amps.

Better to research online first. Onkyo has latest features for low price. My entry level model is latest model onkyo tx sr393 5.2ch only $425. 7.2ch version is tx sr484. Internet connected model latest one is onkyo tx nr696 at $765 only. Please check prices on Lazada. Sold by Alpha Audio at Adelphi. Yamaha has rx v485 and rx v685. Please google for more info.

I dont know Denons so well but can find out which are latest models and best value ones. Pioneer is also getting popular. If u listen to Spotify u can get one with spotify connect. Then u dont need bluetooth to play music. Please read up about this technology.

Was comparing Marantz and Denon during my avr shopping at Aldephi recently.

There was a promotion on the Denon, think the model is a 2500 something, being priced at $599 or $699. Can check it out if it fits your budget and specs.

Alternatively, can try the audio shop at Sim Lim Square level 1, they have a range of models.

Better not buy 2nd hand. May break down in a few months like mine. Instead, u can ask shops about older models and compare price with latest models. U have to decide what features u want before u can properly decide which brand and model to get.

Think maybe it's an older model (2017/2018). Yes saw on Lazada app for $599. U can google for reviews. Also check if there is a newer version. Visit pioneer website.

Well i am not really experienced enough to say but at this price can't complain cos not many other options. Looking back I maybe should have paid more to get a model with internet connection so can enjoy spotify connect / chromecast audio and also in future easier to update firmware without using usb.
