Which is the better receiver between the two overall? I've heard Yamaha has better sound quality, but the Denon has a way better auto-setup compared to Yamaha's YPAO. 

 

Both of these receivers are in the $300 range and their the two best around that price range, unless someone can recommend me something better?

If you catch the right sale you can get the Denon e400 in that price range. Fry's puts the e400 on sale for $299-$330.


If the Denon has way better room correction why would the Yamaha sound better?

I read that difference is that the Denon auto-calibration includes the sub, and the Yamaha doesn't.

 

I have the Yamaha HTR-4065/RX-V473 and it sounds great (my sub could be better), but the HDMI out stopped working about 13 months in, luckily got at Costco and they confirmed that they will take it back. After researching, it appears this is pretty common on these, bummer.

 

Given the bad taste in my mouth from Yamaha, I am waiting for the E300 to go on sale again. It's been 200 on Amazon recently, so hoping it will be again soon!
