I'll be using the receivers for music and movies. The onkyo 8255 is a stereo receiver, and the sr304 is a 5.1 receiver. My question is how the music will sound with each receiver. I know that the stereo receiver is primarily used for music, so I'm sure the music will sound good, but will the music still sound good on the 5.1 receiver in stereo mode?
By the way, I'll be using polk bookshelf speakers with them, along with a subwoofer, and the stereo receiver doesn't have a sub-out, which means that there's no crossover, but the 5.1 receiver does.
