I am looking for opinions on which of these receivers would be better. I am not concerned about 5.1 vs 7.1 really.

http://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-RX-V371BL-5-1-Channel-Receiver/dp/B004QQXDVC/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pdT1_nS_nC?ie=UTF8&colid=2IJZS547DUHXC&coliid=I265QN42WN8A0H

I am leaning towards the Yamaha because of the attractive price, however I have no experience with Yamahas.

Kinda hard for people to tell you what's best without knowing what features you want/are important to you in your avr. What's your budget? What speakers do you have? HT or music? Connectivity needs? etc...

I currently have a blu-ray HTIB. I am slowly going to be piecing together a nicer home theater with larger speakers and separate components, starting with a/v receiver. needs are really only HDMI switching, at least 3 inputs. no need for any wattage requirements most likely, dont care about 3D or anything like that.

These are all barebones receivers and it sounds like you have very modest requirements. None of them would knock your socks off, but given the choice of these three, I would probably take the Yamaha because Yamaha's reputation of reliability is superior to the others. However, I will also suggest you take a look at a refurb Denon AVR-1612 from accessories4less. The Audyssey Multieq room correction package in it may be something you find worthwhile to improve the sound.

The Denon 1513 you linked lacks the Audyssey room EQ so I would really step up to the 1612.
