You are correct, I meant discrete amp circuitry.
The RX-667 Yamaha with discrete amp circuitry was much more beefy than the RX-567.
Basically I am filtering receivers by cost first, then discrete amp circuitry second, then everything else after to make my purchase simple.
So far I am considering the Yamaha RX-667, Denon AVR-591/1611. Does anyone know if the Onkyo RC260/SR608/SR508, Denon AVR-391 and any lower end Harmon Kardon units use discrete amp circuitry?
As I am a novice, I am basically going by discrete amp circuitry and weight to see what the true power is of an amp.
The main floor standing speakers I will be powering (when playing music only) will be Polk Monitor 60's or 70s (I haven't made my mind up on those yet).
