I am looking for a 7.1/7.2ch receiver and these are the two I've narrowed down to. One of my main requests is to be able to section off 2 channels into a 2nd zone. I know the yamaha can do this, but can the Sony? Other than that I wanted know thoughts, opinions, personal comparisons, and factual comparisons. Which one should I get?

Thanks! biggrin.gif

Ask the people who will know: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1421492/new-sony-strdn1030-receiver/0_50

Also download the manual for both and study them--it's a good way to find out the quirks beforehand.

Generally the Yamahas have a reputation for being more trouble-free than the Sonys. If you read through that Sony thread, you see that it poses issues for people--both in terms of malfunctioning and just how it works. The 575 is pretty straightforward. I have a 473, which is the 2012 5.1 version of the 575, and it's pretty reliable.
