Im needing help,

both these Amps are great for their bucks worth, but im confused between them both. Im buying Klipsch F-2 Pack cause i have heard them with Blu-Ray and they sound fantastic.

The Onkyo amp is nice and has alot of great features and it has 3 HDMI inputs yet the Yamaha has 4 HDMI inputs.

the Onkyo i have noticed is lighter than the Yamaha, and as well the Onkyo does have 3 years over 2 years With Yamaha?

I just dont know, for me the Yamah is 100 dollars difference between each other for price?

How has the reviews been for each of them?

The Onkyo i like about is its simplicity good for budget sort of stuff, the Yamaha i like is with not only more HDMI but better connectivity with
the iPod which i have tonnes at home.

So what do u think guys? please help a guy whos going to buy his first ever Home Theatre Package and is wanting the best sound he could ever have for Blu-Ray, Action and Thriller Movie Viewing and Music as well??????

Thanks so much!!!!

I would go for the yamaha as i have the rxv 1700' sound wise there cannot be that much in it but for me the yamaha has a nice sleek understated look (titanium) where as the onkyo seems more bells and whistles a bit ugly (IMHO) but i am sure its a fine performer,so its all down to personal preference really and i am very happy with my yamaha .

Definately The Yamaha RX-V1800, I've had for about a month and I think it looks and sounds absolutely fantastic and besides the yamaha you can show off unlike the onkyo you probably will have to hide it - I mean serouisly onkyo designers must have been drunk when they designed it!:thumbsup:

Thanks guys, i have decided and have put aside a Yamaha 1800.

There is one thing, if i have a 5.1 source, what setting on the Yamaha amp do I turn it into 7.1?
