Since the topic has been brought up, I'd like some feedback on whether or not the Yamaha can push as much power out as an equivalent Onkyo. I.e. is a 100W/ch Yamaha going to sound as good at stupidly loud levels as an Onkyo? Will it sound better? Will one simply not be able to keep up, especially in an all-channels-driven type scenario?
I've read a couple anecdotal reports here at AVS that stated that Yamahas were not quite able to keep up with equivalently rated Onkyos, but that may not be a very scientific comparison, so more data, even if also anecdotal, would be appreciated.
My opinions are my own, and do not necessarily reflect those of my captors.
