I am looking at probably upgrading my SC-25 that I have.

Current setup
TV:
Sony X850D | LED | 4K ULTRA HD | HIGH DYNAMIC RANGE (HDR) |
Receiver: Pioneer Elite SC25
Source: Nvidia Sheild – Plex, Netflix, OTA HDTV
Want to be able to take advantage of 4k & HDR Stuff. I also use zone 2 for audio for speakers out on the deck.

Requirements for receiver - Key things I use from my SC-25 and some items missing since getting a 4k tv.

Items Missing on SC-25:
HDCP 2.2 for 4K Video
HDR-compatible

Items I use on SC-25:
Zone 2 for music in the backyard
5.1 setup
Auto Speaker Calibration
Support DD, TrueHD, DD+, EX don’t care about Dolby Atoms right now
Pure Direct mode


For price range under $500 max which models might you recommend to go with the Goldenear supersats speakers. Supersat 50s R/L, 60C, 3s for rears and two 15 inch subs in a room that is 11' 6" deep by 12' 6" wide with a vaulted ceiling. The SC-25 has more than enough power......

I am looking at these as of right now:

Pioneer Elite SC-LX501
Yamaha RX-A770
Marantz SR5011
Integra DRX-2.1
Pioneer Elite VSX-LX302

I run my Squeezebox on zone 2 for music on the back deck.

For right now 4k would be through online like netflix, etc.Eventually movies through plex/shield.
