Hey guys

bascially i have checked ebay and my local store, and i am about to buy one. please help me decide which of the two receiver to buy. the prices list below are all inclusive (taxes, etc).

1.) denon 3805 (include mic) for around $1000 canadian dollars
2.) yamaha rx-v2500 around $800 canadian dollars

Thanks alot
i'll be matching it up with the epic 60-500 component speakers (but i might not get the subwoofer).

I wouldn't buy either, I would pick an Onyko receiver or possibly the Pioneer. Just kidding of course You should pick the one that has the features that you most want. Or flip a coin

lol, funny Wid.

but honestly, i don't know too much about the features and i don't want to spend too much time on it. I probably can't hear the difference between the two if i visit my local home theather store. I really don't mind either. I guess i just want to know if it is worth spending the extra $200, if not, than i'll order the yamaha tomorrow on ebay.

Quite honestly I have no experiance with either brand. Here we have fans of both brands, some say the Denon is the cake while others will ehco the same statement about their Yamaha. I don't see how you could go wrong with either, if your looking to save a couple hundred then you know your answer.

Those two receivers are essentially identical as to power and have more than you'll likely ever need. Yes, if you visited a store and all other factors were kept equal(a rare occurrence), you wouldn't be able to hear the difference, because there wouldn't be one. If you can't find some feature that sways you toward one of the units, obviously go with price and get the 2500.

The Yamaha will be easier to figure out in terms of the manual and operation. Many Denon owners have mentioned this problem, however, my vote goes to the Denon.

If you ever get upgradeitis and want the m80's, the Denon's won't shut down and overheat.

oh thanks sirquack. I guess i try to decide whether i'll get the m60 or m80 tonight. since i'll probably use this setup for years to come and will not be upgrading much.

Is there much difference between the m60 to m80. A lot of people on this board say the m60 is more than enough, so i never really considered the m80s. plus, i really don't know what (frequency, watts, or khz, etc) all mean. I am really new to home theather systems. I sort of just follow the crowd.

p.s. anyone recommend a good website that explains all of these specifications and what is important in speakers and etc.

I can easily recommend the Denon 3805. It has enough power for most HT rooms. But I will be getting a separate amplifier soon because I have my HT in a very large room.
