    Either of these two would be powering polk rti 8 ohm speakers. The HK is $1020 the 53tx is $699. Can anyone articulate for me a reason as to consider the HK given the comparable statistics between both units and cost?

    I believe you already answered your own question. If you can get a 53TX for that price authorized, then it pretty much seems like a no brainer. I have 45TX, which is a very similar model, outside of the remote and USB and a few other subtleties, and have been extremely happy ever since April when I bought it. That and my speakers are the 2 things that I wouldn't even think about replacing/upgrading anytime soon. The H/K might have a little different sound than the 53TX does, as all receivers vary somewhat, so if you've had a chance to listen to both, and you like the sound (did you test with your speakers by chance?), and the it has the features you are looking for and will need in the future, then it's time to pull the trigger.
