Default which mirco component to buy


I am planning to replace my good old aiwa with a new micro component.
I am not looking at anythibg from sony / aiwa / philips / lg / samsung.

I am only looking at once with silk dome tweeters and wooden bookshelf speakers, 2 channel stereo, which can play ACD and FM.

I found following models matching criteria
onkyo - CS-515 - 25k
yamaha E 700 - price not known
denon DM33 - 34k

I have all the info on ratings given by different magzines.
onkyo has 5 stars frm what hi-fi magzine uk
yamaha is best buy suggested by av max
no info on denon. denon is known for its superior sound and performance.
please suggest which 1 to buy?

Buy an amp, a dvd player and a pair of bookshelves. My suggestion - Wharfedale Diamond 8.1/9.1, Norge 2060, Philips DVD player.

Onkyo used to have a very poor reputation for quality in the UK. Even models they sent for magazine tests used to fail. I would stick to a more trusted name like Denon.
