    Well alot depends on speakers and room size.
    I owned the Onkyo TXsr600 and I now own the Pioneer 811. Difference between these 2 is the Onkyo sounded a tad cleaner but I still enjoy the Pioneer very much.
    Do a comparison on the two and see what you need to get out
    of the receiver.
    If you can listen to them on the same set of speakers at
    a store do it...and listen with a movie/music cd you know
    very well....that will tell you which one you like.
    The one thing I like over the onkyo is the remote that comes with the Pioneer.....it works with everything I own.

    Go for the Pioneer, if only because it has full channel pre-outs. You can add a two-channel amp later on for your mains and get outstanding performance.
