First, let me apologize in advance but, I'm new to this forum and you've probably heard this thousands of times.  I have been pouring over hundreds of threads, reviews, and articles looking for an upgrade to replace my Denon AVR-2105.  I've narrowed it down to two receivers.  The Denon 3313ci or the Yamaha RX-A1020. 

  I'm a huge Denon fan and my current system represents my 3rd Denon that's been flawless.  I loved the sound and quality of my last 3 systems.  My only reservation is that the 3313ci "seems" to have issues.  Maybe I'm wrong and/or they've fixed all this with firmware updates.  But, too many times I have read about people returning their 3313ci due to problems or weak/bad sound.  I just don't want to fork out a ton of money for a headache and look to you guys for some help.  As far as the Yamaha, I have no experience with them, but see no reason to dismiss them.  Both these systems represent what I'm looking for in a new receiver (5.1 minimum, 2 hdmi outputs, wired Lan, at least 2 component in/ 1 out, at least 1 composite input and I like the ability to expand my system to 7.1 though I could care less about multi-zones)  and with both of them currently priced the same, I'm having trouble deciding.  Do I go with Denon who I've had a great experience in the past or do I go with Yamaha who "seem" to have less issues?  Thank you.

Really?  Nothing?  Would love to hear from the Denon and Yamaha boys.
