I was just wondering whether anyone had any knowledge as to how the Pioneer VSX 1120-K receiver compares to the Yamaha RX-V667?
They are in a similar price range though the Yamaha is cheaper, about a hundred dollars lets say. Both have 7.1 preouts which is important for me because i will be using these to run RTi A7 or A9 fronts with RTi 8 rears and a CSi A6 centre (this is what I would want it to eventually run at least ;) ). The Pioneer has THX Select 2 Plus certification.
From the reviews I've read the Yamaha gets great reviews but it seems to be 20 watts per channel (RMS) lower in it's rating. I would only be going the 5.1 route, but I have no idea if this would make each channel enjoy more wattage considering 2 channels are not being run.
Which brand receiver would match better with the polks mentioned above, in terms of sound (I don't like it sounding too bright)?
I'd also say I use my system about 50/50 music/home theatre
Any help would be appreciated.
