Yamaha RX-V575 vs. Sony STRDN1030? WHICH SHOULD I BUY


Standard Member
I am looking for a 7.1/7.2ch receiver and these are the two I've narrowed down to. One of my main requests is to be able to section off 2 channels into a 2nd zone. I know the yamaha can do this, but can the Sony? Other than that I wanted know thoughts, opinions, personal comparisons, and factual comparisons. Which one should I get?

Thanks! :D

Just in case you did not know the 2nd zone function of all receivers only works with analogue sources to the receiver. So anything connected via hdmi, optical or coaxial will not work. I believe the Sony does have zone 2 and also has wifi which the yamaha does not.
