I live in Britain and am wondering which of these two amps to go for: Pioneer VSX-D912 Silver Yamaha RXV740RDS Titanium Both of them can be had online for just under £400, which is my budget for a new amp at the moment. I have placed an order for the Pioneer, as it has 7.1 inputs, auto accoustic calibration and a nice looking remote control. However, when I saw the Yamaha for a similar price, I was uncertain that I had made the right choice. Its RRP is actually a lot higher than that of the Pioneer, and it looks a lot nicer (IMHO). The remote looks less nice, but does have an LCD display. It doesn't have auto accoustic calibration, but it probably has more actual power. Overall, I'm wondering if it will sound nicer (with stereo music too). Some sites list it as not having multi-channel DTS 96/24 performance, but this might not be a big deal for me. I've had a Yamaha before and been very happy with it - should I change my mind, sacrifice a few funky features and go for the safer bet? Can't find any online reviews of the Yamaha, so I'm relying on you guys! BTW, I don't need radio in it, so should I go for an amp as opposed to a receiver? Is that the only difference, or do amps generally have less features than receivers? Cheers, I really need help on this one!
