Hi everyone!

I have a NAS with a dlna server on it (right now i plex, but I can use something else too).

I wanted to buy a good AV reciever thet is compatible with google cast since it's very easy to use it. Also every AV reciever that can use Google cast is compatible with dlna too.

I will use it with a 2.0 or 2.1 speaker to listen at jazz, classic music, metal, rock. Sometimes I will use it with my TV too.

Since very source will be digital (google cast,dlna or hdmi) I want it to have a good integrated dac.

Here's the list of AV reciever that I found. If possible I don't want to spend more than 500€.

Pioneer VSX-LX302 - 600€

Pioneer VSX-832 - 350€

Pioneer VSX-831 - 350€

Sony STR-DN860 - 450€

Sony STR-DN1070 - 550€

Sony STR-DN1080 - 600€

Onkyo TX-NR656 - 450€

Onkyo TX-NR555 - 350€

I'm not an expert, so I added things like Sony STR-DN1070 and 1080 because I don't know the difference between them :(

Can you please help me choosing the best one, or at least reduce the list of reciever to look for?

I'd solidly vote for the Sony STR DN 1080 from that list. I have their older model the str dn 850. And loved will not be disappointed :)
