In a receiver comparison, it is almost always a feature based decision as opposed to an sight/sound based decision.
Get the one that has all the bells and whistles you want, as they will all drive any RTi but the 12s nicely.
Personally, I would choose a Marantz for the remote. I bet no salesman said that...........

I have a Yamaha RX-V4600 and it is a really good sounding receiver. It also has HD Radio. I am driving a 7.1 Polk speaker system with a pair of RTi100, CSi40 center and 4 RTi28surrounds and a PSW303.

The Yamaha will be bright, IMO. The Marantz will be quite smooth in comparison.

My personal preference is the Marantz. My opinion is that it has a very neutral sound, not digital or analytic. SMOOTH.

They've got some "B" stock receivers beginning at $269. They are an authorized factory dealer with full warranty.
