Went from Yammy to Sony for basically the same reason and situation you find yourself in now about two years ago almost.
Things I enjoyed about my Sony DH770 was the integration it had with my TV (Sony) and PS4. BUT, pretty sure most of those features are not Sony exclusive's and are all handled through Enhanced HDMI. Overall sound quality was fine for me. I also enjoyed that I could bi-amp my two front mains (I'm only 5.1 setup, so those extra two outputs were just sitting there doing nothing).
Things I miss about my Yamaha was there were more options I found for EQ, but that may not be everyone's jazz. I still use the yammy daily out in the garage gym to drive some 30 year old technics speakers, the thing has to be close to 10 or more years itself. I love that about good AV, stuff can last forever.
I should note, the only reason I chose Sony was cause it was the cheaper option at the time that had all my features checked off.
