Finally decided to upgrade my pioneer 811. These are the two I've been looking at. They are about the same price online, the yammy's a little more, but not much. Any thoughts on these two receivers? How does the YPAO compare to the MCACC? Which of the two has a stronger amp section? I know the yamaha is rated higher, but we all know how some of these companies rate their stuff. It will be used for about 90%HT/10%music. Any other receivers in this price range I should look at? I'm open. Either of these will be a giant step up in terms of power compared to my 811. Just kinda curious which one would have more actual power. All 7 speakers driven simultaneously. The room is pretty big and open on 1 side. Anybody ever done a comparo between the YPAO and the MCACC? That's kinda got me curious too, to see if the YPAO can keep up the MCACC which has a few years on it. Thanks. Fronts. Monitor 7's. Center. CC-370 Surrounds. Mini's all the way around, including surround backs. Sub. ps-1200.
