Opinions on these two Yamaha Recievers

Recommended Posts


Ok, these two both seem to have a whole lot of features that...well mean nothing to me because i'm not upto date onthe new Dolby and THX technologies.

Please enlighten me.

(note: these arn't so much for video as they are for audio mainly, but if i plug a video source into this before routting it to the tv, will i loose much signal quality?)

basically i want something that won't become obsolete in the next 2-3 years.

Well, while the Yamaha is only 6ohms of continuous power and the Sony is 8, the Yamaha looks to have better audio dacs and a much lower THD. It's a really tough choice and I'm not sure which one I would go with certainly. I have a personal preference against Sony receivers, though the 597 isn't that bad. However, that said, if I had to choose right now, I'd probably go with the Yamaha. The Sony is actually a model from last year and has been replaced with a poorer 598.

I'm not an audio whizz (I have better knowledge of video), but I'm pretty sure most people would agree with me.
