The Yamaha receivers mentioned are in fact 4-ohm rated. The 300 is rated at 50W per channel and the 500 is rated at 75W per channel into 8 ohms. The choice comes down to what features you desire. The HK 3490 is a bit more powerful (150W at 4 ohms) and has an onboard DAC as well as other extras such as Dolby Virtual Speaker
