If you decide against external amps and want a reliable receiver, Yamaha has a great reputation in that area. Plus they sound really good.

Based on my experience with the two brands and how it appears that Pioneer is looking to exit the AV business, my vote goes to the Yamaha. If you stated a budget, there may be some good deals around...

Where do you have your receiver sitting? If it's in an entertainment center, there may not be enough room for proper ventilation. You could also look in to getting a cooling fan, which would be the...

Sony does not seem very popular with the enthusiast crowd, though I have never heard one of their AVRs so i can't really comment. Denon is good. I wasn't very happy with my last Pioneer receiver.
