Looking to upgrade from my Denon 4308. I listen to lots of movies, gaming and music (house, urban)


Reciever will be mathed up with Paradigm Studio's or a Monitor Audio Gold setup (I still haven't decided yet)


I'm considering:


Arcam 400 (maybe make the jump to the 600)

Wait for the Denon 4520?

Pioneer Elite SC68



Thanks.

Pioneer receivers don't EQ the subwoofer (which you don't mention), unlike Denon and Arcam. Some people consider this a major deficiency. Also, getting an Arcam suggests getting significantly better speakers than you might otherwise, since the general rule of thumb is to spend at least twice as much on speakers as you spend on electronics. You certainly should plan to spend some time auditioning the speakers, in home if at all possible. Other people's recommendations (other than trying to start with speakers which are as linear as possible) don't always apply to your own listening environment.
