Is the Onkyo 601 as good as the rest?

    I'm going to get a reciever soon and I was looking at the Onkyo 601. My question is, are there any other comparable brands that I should audition alongside this. Only new models since I will be getting this from a local dealer. Some brands I like are HK, Denon, Yamaha, and Pioneer. Thanks.

    Most people think yamaha+klipsch = bad. They both are bright products. Just demo them all in your ~$500 range and pick the one that sounds best to you. Also, I'm not to fond of lower end pioneers. Kinda weak sounding. I have an onkyo sr600 and it sounds quite a bit better then the pioneer d711 is replaced.

    I like Denon best out of that bunch. An Onkyo 601 is more than enough for most people and their HT goals.

    What are your HT and/or audio goals?
