    Ive been looking for a good affordable thx receiver, and have narrowed it down to these 2 models due to their price. Ive had experience with both companys, and liked them very much and dont know which is the better buy. I currently have a yamaha cd player, so one plus in my opinion is it would be a good match if I did get the htr5790. For speakers I will be using Fluance sv10's and the Fluance sxhtb package, and a 12" northridge series jbl sub. Thanks in advance to any help.

    MattVod, welcome to HTF and congratulations on your first post. I can't speak on those two receivers specifically, but I have always liked and had good luck with Yamaha receivers. I think they are very well built for their price, and have recommended them in the past. Having said that, my friend recently bought the Pioneer 1014 receiver, which is now available delivered for $400, and it is terrific for the price. It sounds great and the auto MCACC was very easy to use to setup the receiver.

    Good luck.

    I own the HTR-5790 and still consider it one of the best bang for the buck receivers. No problems or regrets.
