I auditioned TN696 and really impressed with it
Listening to DTS virtualise is so much different to compare with DTS-hd master (  which currently listening )
Only flaw it has one optical input.
Would have been better if it has 2 ...

Just hooted the outgoing TX-NR686 Onkyo at 699 at AudioHouse Bendemeer over weekend.

Value buy I must say as I was resisting to change out my old 608 and have tried various HDMI splitter for 4k video duties. Now all is good and I am getting UHD video and HD audio all sorted out.

I am sure there are other more better AVR but am happy with this.

Btw I am still running 5.1 hence exploring what are value for money atmos speaker for the front.

Suggestions?

You can't go cheap if you intend to go the Atmos Reflection speaker route. 2 possible options you can look at - i.e. Elac A4 or the Pioneer SP-T22A-LR. The last time I knew was both speakers carry by Alpha Audio. Give them a call to check on availability. It won't burn a hole in your pocket. I highly recommend the Elac A4 over the rest.
