5 weeks ago I purchased the VSX-41 from Etronics for 369.00. I bought this over the Denon 1804 and the HK230. My decision came from reading about the power. I was a little disappointed by the size. It has a plastic face and does not weigh as much as the HTR-5590 I replaced. (This one was 6 weeks old and had a volume control problem) It has a great sound but the receiver I had really wanted was the Onkyo 601. I have now seen this one for 359.00. Is this a more superior receiver? Would the difference be noticed? I could sell the VSX-41 and grab the 601??
