    I bought the Panny XR50. i did in home comparisons with a yammy HTR-5590 and pioneer elite VSX-41. Also compared in the store with HK 230 and Onky 601. The onky's are nice but i preferred the clean sound of the Panny. IMO, the Panny had better detail and imaging than the others. $240 delivered

    If you go 40 more I would go for the Pioneer 1014.

    Keep an eye out for used stuff on this forum in the hardware for sale area. You'll get more bang for your buck!

    Why does cheap equipment is always "for a friend"? [​IMG]

    No it really is for a friend. After the holidays I'm planning on giving the 30" Sanyo HDTV at Wal-Mart a shot & buying a Pioneer 1014 for myself. Dorian where can you buy the 1014 for $340 delivered? The cheapest I've been able to find it for is $369.94 delivered & the Yamaha 5760 that I was trying to talk my friend into is $336.43 delivered & he was moaning over the $36.43 more. If the Pioneer 1014 can be had for under $350 delivered I think I would really push my friend into spending the $50 more.

    This is easy - spend 50$ more and get the Yamaha HTR-5760. Excellent performance and flexibility + extraordinary reliability.

    Its amazing what $350 can buy.

    Agreed. For the money, the Yamaha HTR-5760 has got to be one of the best bargains out there.

    Anthony, I've heard the 5760 & it sounded pretty nice to me so how does the 5740 sound compared to the "60"? Also Happy Thanksgiving [​IMG]
