Any thoughts on these 2 receivers? I would be running them with some Paradigm Titans/Atoms/CC170. I can get both for about the same price. They seem to offer the same features/specs.

I know that HK is pretty warm. What is Onkyo considered?

thanks!

My opinions as I just recently had the Hk 230 at home. Very nice receiver. Has pre-outs for external amp, Logic 7, warm sounding.
I had the Onkyo 600 which was a nice receiver but I had issues with it...so it went back. It also doesn't have pre-out to add an external amp.
Both would satisfy your needs....I don't like the looks of the new HKs so I might opt for a HK 325. Have you considered the Yamaha 5760?

I've never been a big fan of the yammy's. I do like that they offer them in silver now though.

Thanks for the info...

Preouts should be tops on your feature list if you're looking for a receiver to last, so without any hesitation I'll recommend the H/K.
