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.
