I have decided to get one of these for sure(http://www.bestbuy.com/compare.asp?t...85&txtCount=17). Has anyone been to compare these two recievers head to head? I wish I could do it myself, but I have neither the time, energy or money to demo 2 recievers at the same time and take one back. Listening in-store was not an option either, the Pioneer was not hooked up properly. I am well aware of the glowing reviews that the Pioneer has recieved on this forum and elsewhere, and I would have no problem going with it had I not been able to obtain the Kenwood for the same price(Kenwood normally retails for $100 more). I know that higher retail dosent necessarily mean "better", but since not many have been able to speak of the quality of the Kenwood, I feel apprehensve about simply dismissing it based on intangibles such as reputation of the Kenwood brand(which I understand is not exactly glowing). Any positive/negative advantages/disadvantages to both would be greatly appreciated. I will be hooking up either to a JBL NSP-1 package, if that helps. Thanks in advance.
