    Basicly... I need to finially make a decision... Hopfully that is... Last night I finally went to my local HI-FI shop and asked for the absolutly BEST price on the Speakers I like and the Onkio TX-DS595... And he did... And the price was quite good... :)

    Then I asked about the first amp I was going to get which was the Kenwood VR-509, and he stated that he personally would get the Onkio over the Kenwood... UNLESS I was to get the Kenwood VR-510 which is THX...

    All in all, the pricing was good... The pricing differnece between my two packages was $50 more for the Kenwood... Which seems quite good when most places are still asking $599.00 for the Kenwood (I think it lists for $699)... and $499.00 for the Onkyo...

    Unfortunatly I don't see too many write-ups for the Kenwood VR-510... Anyone use one? Is THX worth it?

    The Kenwood actually does have more bells and whistles... and 110w X 5 channels versus 75w X 5 channels on the Onkio... I just keep hearing the Onkio has more driving power...

    Help me please....

    Thanks!

    Bill

    Both are excellent receivers!

    You are going to have to let your ears decide.

    MAKE SURE YOU GET A FAIR AND "PROPER" DEMONSTRATION OF BOTH!!

    My personal pick would probably be the Kenwood 510.
