Hi there, I've recently purchased a 60" HDTV and I'm considering purchasing an HDMI-compatible receiver to replace my Yamaha RX-V1. A friend has provided me with an unbelievable deal (i.e. less than half of retail price) on the Sony STRDA5300ES receiver. I don't usually think of Sony's receivers as top-of-the-line, but I'm pretty impressed by its CNET rating of 8.7. My question is: Will the Sony receiver pale in comparison to my Yamaha? Is it as good as the CNET editors believe? Does the Sony have enough new features (HMDI, 7.1, others?) to make me forget about the RX-V1 (which I've loved from the moment I installed it). Thanks, Scott.
