Both are nice receivers.
Go with Yamaha if you are running 7.1 as it will overlay PLIIx over 5.1 lossless and the Onkyo won't.
Onkyo is HDMI 1.3, Yamaha is not.
Onkyo will internally decode new lossless formats internally, Yamaha will not.
Owners of both rave about both.
Onkyo reportedly more "quirkier" and owners seem to have more complaints than w/ Yamaha.
