Hey guys I just joined and so far love what I see. I'm look to upgrade my Denon AVR-791, I am tired of slowly working my way to flagship status and figure now is the best time to do so. I'm looking at a Pioneer Elite SC-79, Onkyo TX-NR5010, Denon AVR-4520CI, or the Yamaha RX-A3030. Which one would yall recommend for the best all out receiver?

Pioneer and Yamaha don't EQ the lowest frequencies or the subwoofer. Denon and Onkyo use Audyssey, which does.

Carefully compare the features of the Onkyo and Denon receivers to see which one has more of what you want.

The one(s) that has(have) Audyssey XT32. Note that not all strengths of Audyssey work the same or equalize the same frequency ranges.

I recently replaced my 4310 with a denon 4520. Awesome receiver - best sound in my theater hands down. Plenty of power. Love love love the Audyssey XT32. Love the 11.1 channels with NEO:X. Give me a call regarding it. There is also the X4000, a close 2nd.

Sounds like Denon is still the best bet. Thanks for the replies, any other suggestions?
