I have a pair of Def Tech BP8Bs I intend to use for 2 channel audio. Now, I'm trying to find a recover to power them. Having a USB port up front and an optical input in the back is mandatory. I intend to connect an iPod (via USB cable) and connect an Apple TV or Express via optical for Airplay.

I have narrowed it down to 2 (budget) receivers.

-Yamaha V375 (5.1 recv'r). On sale for $180.

-Onkyo TX-8050 (2.1 amp). About $250.

The Onkyo has slightly more power than the Yamaha.

Is there any reason I shouldn't buy the cheaper V375? I've read all the reviews for these things, and of course everyone loves the sound... which makes it very difficult to decide.

I'm curious to know your thoughts. Which one would you choose?
