Unhappy My Elite SC-05 died... Need help selecting 1 of these 4 for replacement

I'm trying to stay around $1000. I currently have a pioneer elite sc-05 and it's finally decided to give up.

My setup:

Polk Audio RTiA5 floor standing FL and FR
Polk Audio CSiA6 center
Polk Audio satellite surrounds
Klipsch 10" ported sub
Vizio P65C1
Oppo UDP-203

4k/HDR pass through and Atmos support will be great to have. I want to make sure it can pass through everything my oppo can output. I plan on doing 5.2.4. I'm looking for a 9.2 channel receiver so I don't need any additional gear. I'm leaning towards the marantz sr-6011 refurbished.

pioneer elite sc-lx701 3 yr warranty 1229.99 free shipping no tax
denon avrx4300h 2 yr warranty 999.00 free shipping no tax
yamaha rx-1060BL 2 yr warranty 1199.95 free shipping no tax
marantz sr-6011 1 yr warranty 949.99 25 shipping no tax refurbished

Any thoughts?

I'd like to add that I favor the marantz because I remember reading the audyssey EQ was generally considered higher quality than the pioneer auto cal that I'm used to.

Upon some more research it looks like Denon owns Marantz and that the avrx4300 has more features than the marantz 6011. So at this point I'm leaning towards the Denon. Any Advice?

I would not consider Yamaha... Their amplifiers seem to run out of power rather quickly.

I prefer Marantz over Denon just based on my previous experience with both brands, although I currently own a Pioneer SC-97 and love it... I like the Pioneer enough to own two of them... Their Class-D amps pack a lot of power and has a very clean sound with tight bass...

If it's not a BIG screen, it's not a theater...
