I am currently running a Yamaha htr-5540 in my dedicated room with Polk speakers all around and a Velodyne Cht-15 sub. I am interested in upgrading to 6.1 surround but my budget is very limited. I have found the new Pioneer vsx-d812 for around $225 online. So fire away. Will I be downgrading my sound quality going to Pioneer from my Yamaha. I have noticed the 1% thd of the Pioneer to th .07% of the Yamaha. Do you think I would be better served waiting for a year or so and increasing my budget for 7.1 sound. Any help is greatly appreciated.
