For several years I wouldn't recommend Onkyo. They seem to have cleaned up their act.
Denon is a great brand, but that 1513 model is weak compared to the linked onkyo.

I would rate them in the order you listed. Onkyo first then Sony etc.
This is based on connections more than anything. All 4 are proven brands.

They have the 2040 refurb for $1280. $460 more. Atmos is worth almost nothing
unless you install some ceiling speakers. And no 4k copyright protection until 2050 model.

Especially with lower end denon/Marantz receivers. Buy a different brand and the hdmi switching will actually work properly.

Yamaha has a few weaknesses in all but their two highest models. Being stuck with
a global crossover level is not good. No subwoofer eq is the other weak link.

Neither one of those prices is that great. Newegg sold the 775 for as low as $430 six months ago.
They have the 677 at $400 for 1 day. Watch newegg for a better deal on the 775/777 models.

These guys can probably fix it. http://www.repairaudio.com/
Even though that was a very expensive flagship receiver it is 13 years old and obsolete in many ways.
Probably not very reliable either...
