    I recently installed a Bose 5.1 surround sound system and i need help picking a receiver. I have narrowed it down to 2: Yamaha HTR-5760 or the Pioneer VSX-D914-K. None of the 5.1 receivers looked any good. Although one is 7.1 and one is 6.1, i wasnt sure how the Yamaha (7.1) or the Pioneer (6.1) would benefit me more, whether there are more programs on one, or one is better rated than the other. Please help me decide! :lease:

    My personal preference would be for the Yamaha although looking at the Yamaha site, I can't find the 5760. Reasons for picking the/a Yamaha ...

    * Good personal experience with Yamaha processors / HC amplifiers
    * Found Pioneer pre-out a weakness when using external power amps
    * Models like the Yamaha RX V650 offer lip synch delay adjustment
    * Yamahas are better looking - the Pioneer 814 (in black) had a completely different colour / finish on the volume / input selectors which looked a bit tacky

    Don't get me wrong, both makes offer good value. I just think Yamaha have the edge with the quality of the product and the comprehensiveness of their spec.

    When I was looking around a Bose factory outlet last week I noticed they were using Nad receivers in their 5.1 setups...
