Hi Guys !
I am planning to buy a HT package around 25k.. I am looking for a balance of music and movie performance.. I am confused between Yamaha, Pioneer & Onkyo.. All suggestions are welcome... Please advise for other brands with AV receivers too...:)

Yamaha/Denon HT package (with AV receiver) with HD audio support will cost you more than 25k.
Yamaha YHT-196 is the one within your budget, but it doesn't support HD(Blu-Ray) audio formats. The next model Yamaha YHT-296/Onkyo 3500 costs near to 30k. Also you can look for Onkyo 3400, which should be available for around 25k now.

IMO Yamaha is better for music than Onkyo.

I researched a bit.. I took a demo for Yamaha HT-196 and Pioneer HTP-071.. Both sounded nice.. Yamaha has passive woofer and Pioneer has an active one.
Pioneer woofer and Amp were both bigger that that of Yamaha.. Price for both of them is similar..
Please help, confused !

YHT-196 does not do HD audio. Be sure to take something with as many HDMI inputs as possible and with HD audio.

Pioneer specs look good. Also, check out Onkyo HTIBs 3400/3500. Also, Yamaha YHT-296/YHT-298 can be considered.

Pioneer will be a better choice as it has 4 hdmi inputs, supports HD audio and 3D. What is the offer price?
