Hey guys and gurus!

I am so confused between getting either a rx-a810 or a rx-a1010.

Personally rx-a1010 looks so sleak (i know its stupid to judge by looks)

Difference is 200$, the thing is all say they keep their receivers for 10 years, so is it wise for me to spend 200 more and get the one or spend 800 and get the one below that?

my speakers are rf-52's (KLIPSCH) and RC-52 for center speaker.

No subwoofer yet, planning to buy polk 10 or 12 inch one.

I watch movies and am primarily a pandora listener coz of its convenience. Rarely radio, sometimes npr. Not crazy about HD radio.

Please advise. I will be very grateful!

RJ

The 1010 weighs 9 pounds more than the 810. More importantly the power supply is 125% the size 490w/400w. That is not a lot. Phono input, hd radio, s-video inputs and digital audio out. And yes a better looking front panel. Other than that very similar. I recently had both the yamaha 1000 and 867. They both worked great and the internet radio hooked right up. The ypao did 8 room readings.

I don't think it's worth spending more for the 1010 over the 810. There's not much difference. The 2010 is a big step up from the 1010 and I would be willing to pay the extra for that.
