Recently had to replace this excellent Amp. after 10 good years because the centre channel went missing. Tried the Sony STRDN 1010 (8.6kg) but there was no comparison, very flimsy sound. That ended in the bedroom because it sounded too empty and had not the power to drive the KEF 4 Ohm speakers. Tried the Denon AVR2311 (10.1kg) but still prefer the sound of the STR-DB930 (13kg), especially for Nicam sound from my Humax PVR, I would just set it to Auto Decode and job done, great for music. With the Denon I am constantly fiddling to get the setup. Forget the Audyssey and 6 HDMI inputs, just get my old 930 fixed and use optical connectors again.
