    Between the Yamaha HTR-5560 and the Pioneer VSX811 which is recommended? The only thing I will be using it for is movies. I really don't care that the Yamaha doesn't do DTS-ES discrete because I won't have room for a 6.1 set-up for a couple years.

    Sound is a very subjective thing, but even although I can get Yamaha receiver at cost, I'd take Pioneer in a heartbeat.

    Perfect Vision rated the Denon-4802 and Denon-5803 as the pick of the litter for HT receivers. No mention of Yamaha and Pioneer. B&K also makes a great receiver. Why limit yourself to looking at Pioneer and Yamaha?

    I just picked up the Yamaha HTR-5590 last week and love it.
    I've owned 2 Pioneers in the last 5 years and the Yamaha blows them both out of the water.

    Just my Opinion,
    Jason
