    Sorry if this has been covered before but I am on a short time restraint here. I just picked up the Onkyo on Saturday. Thought I would be happy with it but I realized it only has 2 rear optical inputs. The Yamaha has 3. That right there could be the deciding factor. What I am wondering is I would lose any sound quality or other features by going with the Yamaha. Like I said it is a matter of the optical inputs as long as I am not sacrificing anything else. Need to make a real quick decision so any input would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Steve-
    Wish I could help. I am in the same boat. Everything I am reading about the 5660 or 5650 seems to be positive, except for some guy who gets hissing (he posted ot my earlier thread) in his 5640, which is a related model I think.
    Best of luck.

    I just got my 601 setup and it is MUCH better sounding than my old HK225
