    Yamaha RX-V585 vs Denon X1600H

    Are these two AVRs comparable? The V585 is at 45k and the 1600H is 58k, is the Denon worth the difference? I'm going to start by adding some Polk S50s as well with them and OWM3s for now. Is this is a decent setup to start off with? Please suggest as I'm brand new to this. Thanks.
