I am about to buy one of these as second hand, STR-DB940 or STR-DB870...
Which one would you suggest?
Thank you for your time...

What's the price difference between the two you're looking at?
I had the Sony 930 and was very pleased with it. The 940 is meant to be a noticeable step up from that. There's a glowing and fairly trustworthy review of the 940 here (http://www.home-entertainment.co.uk/firstlook_read.asp?ID=872)
That said, the 870 also got good reviews. I don't think you'd go to far wrong with either to be honest.

Thank you for your reply.
The price are close to each other STR-DB940 is around £130-£140, and STR-DB870 is £150. But I think STR-DB870 is a lower level but one year newer compare to STR-DB940...

The 940 is probably the better bet, still a reasonable receiver especially for that money, its only really lacking Dolby Pro Logic 2.
I've just added a Rotel power amp to mine and its given it a new lease of life.
They tend to go for £220ish on ebay.
