I currently have the Yamaha rx-v565 receiver.
Rated 90watts @ 7 channels.
I'm thinking about jumping on the the Pioneer SC-1222-K while it's on sale tonight or tomorrow.
Class D amp, rated 120watts @ 7 channels
Personally, I don't really care about the features.
What I want is more power power and a cleaner sound for simply watching movies and listening to music.
My question is whether people think the Pioneer SC-1222 will be noticeably better @ powering a pair of Monitor 70's, CS2 center, and pair of Monitor 30 rear(5.1) surround speakers than the Yamaha rx-v565?
The 70's seem pretty power-hunger.
I am on a budget but could fit this receiver in if it were a big enough upgrade in overall sound over the Yamaha.
