AVR recommendation

Looking to upgrade from my ten year old Denon receiver that powers my five 600 series B&W speakers in my 5.1 set up. Tower speakers in the front, bookshelves in the rear.I will also be using an SVS 2000 sub. Any recommendations? Thank you

I believe your speakers are 8 ohm with 88db for sensitivity so as you know you don't need immense power to drive them. What is your budget? Will you be adding any speakers? Do you want an AVR( my assumption) or separates? Do you like your sound a little brighter or more warm?

your options range from $200 to $3000. What is your budget? Do you have plans to expand beyond 7.1?

I would like to spend under $2000.00 and may be adding two ceiling speakers, not sure yet. Definitely like a brighter sound. Also, not losing voices in a movie is most important. Looking for an AVR, not separates.

I would like to spend under $2000.00. A 7.1 AVR should do it as I may add two ceiling speakers.

Since you liked the Denon sound for ten years I would stay with a brand you enjoy and with which you are familiar . The 2019 Denon 3600 would more then meet your needs. 9 channels of amplification and Dolby Atmos and Dolby Vision. Really great reviews.

The Denon X3600 mentioned above is a great value/performance option. You get audyssey XT32, dual sub HT, decent power, plenty of features and room for future expansion.
