I am looking for some advice. I have a friend that I am helping with a new HT system. I had advised him to buy an Onkyo 898 but he had found the Sherwood r963. The Sherwood costs more and I have searched and found its specs but I am wondering how these two receivers would compare features, sound, user interface etc. Is there anything major that one does that the other doesn't etc? Any input would be appreciated.
