Question Denon AVR-X1300W or Pioneer Elite VSX-90 for Budget Atmos?


Novice Member
I can get either of these two receivers either Factory refurb or NIB from Craigslist for around $300...

- Factory Refurbished Denon AVR-X1300W 7.2-Ch x 80 Watts for $308 inc tax and shipping
- New sealed in box Pioneer Elite VSX-90 7.2-Ch x 100 Watts for $300 (Maybe a bit less) locally on Craigslist

I want to make a budget Atmos system for my living room, are there any major key pointers that would stand out for one of these over the other?
