I have the 550, a Pioneer 565 and 757.
Tend to find the Pioneer's more user friendly, the Yamaha has a simple GUI and is based on Philips running gear.
It seems most cheaper decks are now made in China, the Yamaha is made in Hungary but it is still a "simple" player, albeit with prog scan.
I would give the 575 a try from RS, take it back if you don't like it.
