On the market for a decent receiver. Saw Yamaha RX-V675 and Sony STRDN1030 for $389 and $329 at the local Costco. Pretty good price compared to outside.
Looking at various posts on these receivers, both have very good reviews.
While sound quality preferences varies, which of these is supposed to have a better sound quality?
Features wise both have similar capabilities. Anything that makes one stand out from other?
Sony has 145 Watts vs Yamaha's 105 . Does this really makes lots of difference? . Haven't decided on the speakers yet but leaning towards some Klipsch speakers on sale now

what does "HDMI switching" s mean? Is it that when you change TV channels which are connected thru the receiver takes 10 seconds to change from channel to next? I am sure I am asking a stupid question
Costco's rebate for Yamaha is over. Its back to $499. With all the reviews, I have seen for Sony, I guess I can't go wrong. Also its only $324 in Costco. I am planning to pair it with a set of JBL ES80 speakers.
