Still a personal choice but,
Yamaha has better power then the JVC,has better dynamic range.Even though the spec's are the same.Yamaha power is like this...if it's a 100watts...its equal to 110 to 115 other brands in its class.I personally think they under rate there power as others over rate.
Yamahas don't break down hardley ever.They are also clean sounding.Not a warm amp but a powerfull and clear.

stats don't mean crap (to an extent). there is no industry standard for rating wattages, so one companies 50Wx2 can sound better than another 85x2. also, a 5-15 watt difference at 100W isn't THAT significant. i would recommend going to a local dealer an demo both, see what sounds best to you!
good luck, and have fun...:D

I won't be looking for another receiver for a long time. In fact if I ever replace the JVC, it'll be for separates. Nice receiver. Great sounding, plenty of headroom, dual zone (CD in one room & FM in another) RF remote and very affordable. I'll try looking into the Yamaha to do a more specific comparison. What are you looking for.
No matter what anybody says about any given brand or model, demo your ass off.

thats whats its all about...making a personal choice.Demoing is the only way.No spec can make you or not make you buy.Unless its features, and it doen't have what you need.
