    I have been debating if I should get a Onkyo TX-SR501 or a TX-SR601. I will be running a JBL NSP1II in a small room that is 10X10. I know the TX-SR501 is more than enough for my room size, but I would like to know if it they're any advantages to getting the TX-SR601 apart from the more power? Will the 601 also rum hotter than the 501? Would also prefer if I didn't have to upgrade the receiver for more than 2 years.

    I can get the TX-SR501 for $200 brand new or the TX-SR601 for $315 refurbished. I will be upgrading from a Kenwood VR-505.

    The 601 has:
    OSD, 85 vs 65 watts/channel(?), a learning remote and extra inputs compared to the 501 so I guess it would depend on if you would need any of these extra features.
    For the price the 601 should have pre-outs to add a 5 channel amp but it doesn't.....
