I'm selling a year old Harman Kardon AVR 133 with JBL SCS 200BK 5.1 Home Cinema Speaker System for 18000 Rs.
Please suggest me the upgrade whether to go for Martenz or Denon. My budget is 60k. My use will be for 80% Movies and 20% Music.

I heard, for movies onkyo is the best. You can look for onkyo 608 or 609.

If your taste is 80% movies and 20% music, then I would recommend you to go for the Yamaha RX-V667 or RX-V767.

Last month I had auditioned Yamaha RX-V767 vs Onkyo TX-NR609 playing the same movie scene (Transformer 2007) with the same speakers (MS carnival 6+2+5 with Paradigm DSP 3200 V.2 subs) and same volume knob (-15db).

The Yamaha output better surround sound with more clarity while the surrounds in the Onkyo was marginally suppressed. Both units were without the Audyssey set-up.

Now coming to playing music from the receiver, the Onkyo was far superior to Yamaha.
