Mid/High end Receiver and Amplifier suggestions (Nadz vs Arcam vs Emotiva) etc

Dear ASR,

Long-time reader, first time posting.

Some info:

I am moving into a new home where a (4m width x 5m depth x 3.8m height) will be a dedicated room for home theatre (70%) and stereo music (30%).

I am currently running a 7.2.4 setup with atmos with Kef R- series for speakers and SVS subs.

Looking to upgrade AVR/amps for my system, currently using old Marantz avr and amps.

I would like my new system to have:

1. Dirac Live
2. Independent Sub outputs ( Dirac Live Bass Control)
3. Auro 3D support

Could someone please point me in the right direction? I have been looking at Nadz T778 (poor review here), Arcam AVR20/AVR30 (poor review here), Emotiva (not sure with independent subs) Monolith (not available in my country), new Onkyo/Pioneer (no stock) etc.

My budget is around 6,000 USD to 8,000 USD for both AVR and amps.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
