    Get the 5400. The 6200 has a slightly more powerful amp section, but in terms of sound, they will be very similar. There is a known issue with the x200 series, in which there is a problem with digital connections "dropping out" the first half second of sound while trying to lock onto the incoming digital signal (does not happen in analog). From what I have read, the 5400 does not have this problem, and also has newer, slightly better DACs (D to A converters). This is coming from a former 6200 owner. Very good sounding receiver, but not quite powerful enough for my needs.
