In the past, Pioneer has tended towards girth, while Yamaha has tended toward musicality, but I haven't listened to either for quite awhile.

Using girth as your word of choice made me unable to understand exactly what you mean, but what I've done is that I've put a bet on both of them slightly bellow what the price point was and if one of the sellers agree then i'll buy that one.

I think out of the two I'd go with the Yamaha, It seems a bit newer has more features and stuff, its pretty much a brand new receiver except it doesn't have HDMI not that you'd use it but It's good and 100W a channel is good too. I'd grab that if you could. ALSO a big must for me when I get an amp is its REALLY nice to have the option of having two sets of front speakers so if you listen to music you can switch between smaller desk speakers or something and larger speakers quickly with the press of a button, you'd be using surround so it doesn't matter to you but its a good feature. I'd grab that one, make sure its in good condition maybe even audition it if you can with whoever is selling it... smile.gif

Anyone thing without HDMI these days is pretty much worthless. $4000-5000 receivers from 2005-6 can be had for like $200-300 nowadays because they don't have hdmi. The ones that do are still worth 50-60% of their old msrp.

For example, a Denon 5308 and a Denon 5803 are essentially the same receiver, same power supplies, tranformers, DACs, analog output stages, connectivity, and both having retailed for $5000 in the mid 2000s. The former has HDMI, is still selling for $2500+ on ebay, and the latter has no HDMI and is going for as low as $375 in some cases.

Just an update got the Pioneer VSX-916-s a bit cheaper than expected and plugging in my speakers and using an old TV to configure it. I'm in love with the sound. Plugged in a Yamaha microphone i had lying around to let it equalize the different speakers and now they play together like a charm got a total of 10 speakers and a subwoffer connected, and i like the sound better than my ATH-M50's.
