Hi guys, i want a budget system for me so i am deciding between these two models, here in Brazil i found the yamaha for 587 usd in direct conversion and the denon model is 621 usd, the denon model is 110v only and yamaha is bivolt, in my house the wall sockets is 220v, so if i buy the denon model i will need to buy a power transformer.
so what would be the best option? the seller also offered me the yamaha ns-p20 kit but i am unsure if the subwoofer is active or not. it would be a good system? here in brazil i dont have a lot of options to choose in this department.
thanks in advance.

The Denon has an ethernet port for internet radio streaming, Pandora, networking, Apple Airplay etc. The Yamaha has none of this.

I would buy the Denon for the extra features plus better room calibration software. Audyssey MultEQ is better than Yamaha's YPAO.

But if the voltage is a concern you need to get whichever one works best in your environment.

The Denon should sound better because of the better room calibration.

I know nothing about the ns-p20 speakers. never heard of them.

just looked at specs on the ns-p20. All speakers use a single 2.75" full range cone speaker. No separate woofer and tweeter. These are very low end speakers.

They really aren't that good, just get whichever receiver appeals to you more.

and about the boston acoustics MCS160? they cost 130usd more, are they worth the price? if not what a good entry level speaker kit?
