When people see the 'vs' it tends to keep them away. Usually a pissing contest breaks out between the fan camps.
Try using the time-tested "which AVR should I buy" - then list those as your two choices. Works much better IMO.

I didn't think it was your intention.
You might want to list your speakers and environment where you'll be using the new AVR. I like Audyssey room correction (I have an Integra DHC 40.1) and have never used the Yamaha YPAO. I also have a Denon AVR589 that has Audyssey. I've never ran that program on the Denon. YPAO is Yamaha's own room correction software and the Yamaha users seem to like it real well. The computer controls for the Yamaha look interesting. I'll have to find a shop around here that carries it and see what thats all about.

I've owned several Yamaha and Onkyo receivers and Yamaha's are better. Particularly with Klipsh.
Klipsch have these horns that kick ass with treble and Yamaha's also kick ass with treble. A good combo. I've found good treble is harder to get right than bass. With bass, you can always buy a good sub and the receiver doesn't really have to do much except pass the LFE to it. The receiver has to drive the treble by itself.
Yamaha's are well made and durable as hell. Never give me any problems. Unlike Onkyo.
