I think I have my decision paired down to these two amps and i'm looking for suggestions / comments.

 

In picking these two the features I am looking for the most are the following

 

Spotify Connect

Airplay

Powered Zone 2 with ability to play digital sources

Decent amount of power

 

any help is appreciated

You're comparing a $599 MSRP Yamaha receiver vs a $999 MSRP Pioneer receiver.


Shouldn't you be looking for a higher end Yamaha like the RX-A1020 or RX-A830?

Those two units sound a bit different. Buy both and test them in your room with your speakers to determine which one you like more. Return the one you don't want.

I've owned a Pioneer SC-75 and a 1222-k along with several different Yamaha receivers. I prefer the Yamaha sound in my room with the various speakers that I have used over the Pioneer.


As long as the receiver has the features you are looking for either one of these would work for you.


I have bought three refurb AVRs and all of them had problems. One Yamaha, one Denon, and one UMC-200 (this was a simple fix). I would not recommend doing it. I'd rather risk a used item over a refurb unit.
