    1-Yamaha RXV-1500
    2-Yamaha RXV-650(for center&rear) with AX-396 for stereo & front speaker powering dutes??

    i have the RXV-650 and am thinking of getting the AX-396 or 496 to use it for stereo with my fronts using the preouts of the 650,

    I would say go for the RX-V1500. While I'm an advocate of using 2-channel amps for music, I'm not a huge fan of the two Yamaha stereo amps you mention. I think the RX-V1500 running Pure Direct gives a fairly clean sound for the money. If you have your heart set on the 2-chanel perhaps couple the RX-V650 with a Cambridge 540A/640A amplifier - much more polished presentation and detail.
