Not really, could have to do with frequency response. A softer high-end is often thought of as "musical", etc. The concept of "musicality" is also closely tied to brand name perception, so there's a strong bias in sighted tests. Basic room treatments will have a far greater sonic effect than slight differences among receivers.
As Dawg90 advised above, use your ears to judge. Not that easy to do once the eyes get involved, though. A fact.
