Just wanted to know which model would be a better buy. Also which of the two models will give me a better performance in Audio . The price tag is the same for both model. The Denon looks better than the Yamaha (appearance ). Im always been a fan of Yamaha Products but Im willing to give it a try with Denon 790. Everybody thanks for your help and sharing your knowledge with me.


Setup:

Klipsch Quintet SL

Subwoofer 12"'

Samsung 46b 650

PS3

Dish network Hi Def

Apple TV

The Denon. Yamaha gutted the 665s power (compared to the 663, which was low to begin with). The Denon does not have pre-outs so if you plan on using a separate power amp, go with the 665. That is the only reason I would chose the 665 over the Denon. I am not a big fan of the lower model Yamahas unless you are hooking up a separate amp. They can make very good pre-pros though.
