Personally, I like the sound of Yamaha receivers. But, I've never spent anywhere near that budget on an AVR (most spent was $350 on a used unit). I've had two Yamahas, Pioneer, Cambridge Audio, HK and a Denon over the last 20 years. Partial to the Yamahas, but would gladly pick up another Cambridge if they weren't so expensive over here. Cambridge stuff did a great job with music and HT. Yamahas are best sounding for 5.1 stuff to my ears in this low end of the spending range.
