Audyssey XT32 is a big reason to go with the Integra. Chances are you will not notice the video difference in the real world. Looks (aesthetics) are not all that important to me, they are both sort of basic black. Frankly, I was debating between them but am now seriously considering following Chris to the Denon 4311 instead. About the same price as the Integra but with a few more features and amps included.
