I would like to say that I was so impressed with the two front speakers the YHT-370 came with that I called Yamaha's parts department and purchased three more of them, replacing and improving upon the surround and center speakers it originally came with. For those of you who are interested in comparing it with the Onkyo HT-S790, the Yamaha's front speakers' woofers are 6.5" compared to 5.25" on the Onkyo, and the Yamaha's front speakers' tweeters are 1" compared to 0.75" on the Onkyo, giving the Yamaha a wider audible frequency response. To my knowledge, I have never found better bookshelf speakers than the ones included with the YHT-370. Here are my question. Being that the receiver that came with the YHT-370 is based on Yamaha's budget receivers, how good is its 5.1 analog input section? Also, because the HTR-5935 receiver it came with is capable of redirecting the surround, center, and subwoofer channels to the front speakers if those speakers are set to 'None' in the speaker settings menu (downmixing) when using the analog multi-channel inputs, does this mean that analog is converted to digital PCM before it reaches the amplifier section? If so, then that could result in loss of higher frequencies during SACD playback.
