Can anyone recommend a receiver?

Right now I have a Yamaha HTR-5063 and it works great. I have it in a 7.1 setup.
However, sometime this year I am upgrading my TV to a 4K HDR10 and will be getting the new Xbox Scarlett. I also have several media that has Dolby Atmos / DTS:X tracks on it as well as the console doing it too.
My current receiver only supports 1080p and doesn't support Atmos / X.

I've been doing some research and I've found two that seem pretty decent:
Sony STR-DH790
Yamaha TSR-7850R

The Sony can be found for around $250 used and the Yamaha is $300 refurbished.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?
Thanks a ton!

I own 3 Yamahas. Oldest one is from 1992. Last one I bought was the Yamaha RX-V681BL which has Atmos and I got it because it was very versatile and supported phono and tons of HDMI including 4K. It is a bit pricey though.

If your budget is ~$300 look at the Yamaha models in that price range and get one that will satisfy your needs!

Thanks. I really do love this Yamaha it's just so damn old and all the audio/video inputs/outputs are outdated.
Looking at the Yamaha TSR-7850 as it's their latest revision of their cheapest model.
It does it all though - 4k, HDR, Atmos, 7ch.
It's around $380 after taxes new but you can get it refurbished for around $300 after taxes.

I feel like 4k / Atmos should be future proof for at least a decade so that's only like $30 a year.

Ended up getting a used Yamaha RX-V583 for $205 shipped. It's a 2017 model but it has everything the newer models have. I double checked the specs page. Apparently you can even use your phone as a remote control.

epic -

2 years ago is nothing in audio, is kinda like 2 years in TVs/Monitors. Not much changes, and we're all still waiting for the same thing we were waiting on 5+ years ago.

Add me on Steam, same name

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

That is good to have a phone remote as a backup.. sometimes the newer units might include minor ups like a newer HDMI 2.0 to a higher speed etc. If it does what you need Kudo's.

Just went through the same situation about 8 months ago, had an older Yamaha receiver that was all composite ins/outs and had to update due to upgrading cable box for a new 4K TV which is all HDMI.

Ended up with the Yamaha RX-V385, one of Yamahas lower end, no Atmos, but does have bluetooth to use my phone and Amazon prime music.

Always exciting to get new audio equipment!

Went from Yammy to Sony for basically the same reason and situation you find yourself in now about two years ago almost.

Things I enjoyed about my Sony DH770 was the integration it had with my TV (Sony) and PS4. BUT, pretty sure most of those features are not Sony exclusive's and are all handled through Enhanced HDMI. Overall sound quality was fine for me. I also enjoyed that I could bi-amp my two front mains (I'm only 5.1 setup, so those extra two outputs were just sitting there doing nothing).

Things I miss about my Yamaha was there were more options I found for EQ, but that may not be everyone's jazz. I still use the yammy daily out in the garage gym to drive some 30 year old technics speakers, the thing has to be close to 10 or more years itself. I love that about good AV, stuff can last forever.

I should note, the only reason I chose Sony was cause it was the cheaper option at the time that had all my features checked off.
