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

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

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.

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 ;)
