Interested to get peoples opinions ..
Voted the Yamaha.
Bit of a fan see.
you have experience of the Onkyo and this set?
No, but I've heard both MA speakers and Onkyo amps and neither suit one another. The Yamaha will sound better in my opinion
1) Excess Power
2) Good build quality ( Long guarantee??? )
3) Not too expensive
4) Looks good
Bells and Whistles
Enough about me, what about the amplifiers?
Did you mean the Bells and Whistles bit; I had a feeling you were a secret Morris Dancer
If it was my money, I would go for Yamaha but that's because I'm a fan of their gear. I have heard of people partnering Onkyo 875/876/905/906 with MA Silver and they say it's fantastic. In the end, use your own ears as we all have our opinions and favourites.....
I'd go for the Yamaha to but thats only because I am
After a demo of the two units yesterday it's Onkyo for me ...the yamaha and MAs really do produce a very bright and clinical sound ... not to my tastes ...
Interesting, Ive always known Yamaha's to produce more of a warm sound. With the MA being brighter than most I'd have thought they'd be the perfect match?
What type of sound did the onkyo/MA produce if you dont mind me asking?
As already noted, most people find the exact opposite to what you've experienced.
