    I just picked up the equivilent model below the one you speak of. Mine is the RX-V640 which is virtually identical to the HTR-5660. I highly recommend Yamaha's receiver line. I upgraded from a Pioneer and the difference is night and day to me. But definately gets your ears into listening mode and see for yourself.

    As for the 5590, I believe it doesn't have preamp outputs. That's a pretty large no-no for the price. I'm assuming you found this unit at a Best Buy or similar store? Check out an audio specialty store, something like Tweeter (www.tweeter.com) The RX-V1300 is the same price and it has preamp outputs and probably a few other things. I'd go that route. I don't believe you can purchase this unit from Tweeter's web site though.

    Anyhow, good luck with whatever you do.

    yea but i can get it for $495, new. I figure for that price its a steal. Im probably gonna be hookin it up to the klipsch synergy line and im wondering if it's a little too much power

    be patient get the Rxv 1300. look online for a cheaper price. It's almost the end of the year, chances are the price has gone down. stick with the RXV line of yamaha's.[​IMG]

    There is absolutely no difference in the 2 lines as far as quality they are exactly the same components but as stated the 5590 will not give you pre-outs other than that its the exact and I mean exact same as the rx-v1300 so if you dont care about Pre-Outs the go out and get if you can get it that cheap.

    The Yammy will not have too much power for the Kipsche. In fact, the Klipsche's can handle far more than the Yammy will ever give them.
