$250 range AVR?

Hey guys, what AVR you guys recommend in the $250 range? I just bought a Sony STR-DH550 for $229 but I was wondering if I could do better in this price range. My TV is a Samsung UN65H7150 with a PS4, HTPC and Bright House DVR all connected to the TV. The audio is being routed from the TV to the receiver via HDMI ARC.

I like this Sony especially for the price but I wish it had Bluetooth capability so we could connect our iPhones and stream Spotify to it.

Any suggestions? Or should I just keep the DH550?

Refurbished Denon X1000. You can stream your iPhone (including Spotify) to it using airplay. It also has Spotify native on the AVR (but you have to have a paid subscription to Spotify for that). It does not have bluetooth.

ERuiz,
Did you end up returning it or keeping it? If BT is the only thing you are missing, I think you could simply buy one for $20-$25 range online and plug it to one of the inputs and use that as your BT receiver.
