    Onkyo TX-RZ50 vs. Denon X4700H vs. Yamaha RX-A6A

    I didn't use auto calibration. I used REW and a Umik.

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 vs. Denon X4700H vs. Yamaha RX-A6A

    I currently have a couple Marantz. An SR7013 in the living room and an AV7703 in the HT. That 7013 runs really hot. Not the 7703.

There's a reason they only provide, at best, a full range signal into two channels, or more often the completely useless spec of a 1KHz test tone. There is only enough power coming in to drive two...

    Onkyo TX-RZ50 vs. Denon X4700H vs. Yamaha RX-A6A

    If that is correct, it would completely disqualify the Onkyo for me, for the reason Greg explained. It's most beneficial to use an external amp for the front three channels, not just L&R. However, looking at the RZ50, it does have pre outs for the front channels, so it really should be able to...
