    Default Denon AVR 791 or Yamaha 667?

    I have a Denon 791 that I like but there is no room for adding on as their are no pre-outs. A guy at work would be willing to buy the Yamaha 667 and then swap me for my Denon...would you? just curious.

    Pre-outs are a plus....but only 'you' can decide what you think sounds 'better', they're your ears.

    As for me. I think Denons are much more musical than mid-level Yamahas. Shouldn't change AVRs on a whim. Maybe you should just borrow his Yammie and try it out 'first'!

    I did set up the Studio with both receivers and for my ear the Yamaha seemed "tinny" to me. I definately liked the Denon better as far as tone was concerned. Thanks cnh....guess the obvious escaped me there...LOL

    If you're going to get an amp right away it'd be worth it, then it'd sound better than both.
