Hi

I am living in Norway and going to buy one of those: Sony STR-DN1080 or Onkyo TX-NR686 They cost around 385£/470USD/435EUR after conversion in Norway

Which one should I choose and why?

Or maybe something else?

Thanks!

I would go with an Onkyo 696.
Do not overlook the year of release when buying a new AVR since I doubt new features will be added to the 2017 Sony/2018 Onkyo while 2019 Onkyos will have a chance to receive new features...just for example last December Alexa support was added to 696 but not to 686, the same happened with Roon tested certification that reached 696 but not the 686, etc etc.

Looking at Amazon DE I see the 1080 and 696 are same price even.

Michel they are very similar, the nr686 has more audio inputs as well as dedicated phono input.



In the same category maybe look at these
Pioneer vsx-lx103/104
Denon x2500
Yamaha rx-v685?
