Better in what sense? Sound quality? All amplifiers sound the same, but if you don't accept that, and many don't, the only way to find out which sounds better is to listen yourself. Find a store that will let you audition the particular receivers you're interested in and see how they sound.
If it's build quality then there's only one brand here that has a reputation for more than average number of failures, and it's not Yamaha or Sony. Even that may be undiserved, as the posts on this forum hardly count as an scientific representatoin of what the actual failure rates are.
If it's features and stuff, then all you need to do is compare their respective spec lists. Only you can say what features are better than others.
