1st off Let me just say I wish I had found this place sooner!!! As for my question, I have recently tried out a Pioneer VSX-1015TX (120Wx7 / TXH cert.) in my home as well as a Yamaha HTR-5860 (110Wx7 / XM) Overall I feel as though the Pioneer is a better unit. I was just wondering if I was missing anything in the $500-600 range Onkyo ? Sony ? I was also considering the Yamaha HTR-5890 (140Wx7 / THX Cert.) but thats pushing up into the $700 range. I just dont wan't to commit to one only to find out Yoshmitsu makes a supiror reciver for the same money. Thanks, Tom PS I have Klipsch SF-3 front speakers as 2-pair of Klipsch SF-1's for the Surround & surround back speakers. I don't yet have a sub, but thats for a later post. I currently have a Sony STR-995 reciver Thanks again.
