Please help me decide.
YAMAHA RX-V871BL
ONKYO TX-NR809
The Yamaha is $170 cheaper (Costco) then the Onkyo (Amazon) but I really do want the best I can get for $650.
My only concern is the Yamaha's lack of HQV Vida processor.
I don't have any experience with YPAO or AUDYSSEY so I don't know if I would have a sound preference. I have read that the Yamaha has more Music feel and the Onkyo more bass and is better suited to Surround Sound preference.

My setup includes 6 HDMI inputs and a Energy RC-Micro 5.1 Speaker System connected to a LG 55" 3D LED LCD.
I do not care about Yamaha/Onkyo reliability issues, that is what warranties are for.

I cannot find ANY reviews on the Yamaha so I would really appreciate some feedback. Specifically Yamaha's video processing compared to the Onkyo and whether of not it is a relevant factor, if it isn't I will save the $170 and go to Costco this weekend.
Thanks in Advance

I've made my decision to save the $170 and go for the Yamaha.
I compared the rear panels and realized that I wouldn't use the RS232, PC-In, Zone 3 Pre-outs and some other Onkyo extras.

I also Downloaded both Android Apps and both have their pros and cons but both are very nice. It's too bad the Yamaha doesn't have a simple remote control function (Up, Down, Enter) like the Onkyo.
I guess I will never know if the Onkyo would have looked or sounded better.
Plan on buying in a couple days, any comments to change my mind much appreciated.
