Hi,

I am planning to upgrade my AVR to Yamaha. Which one should I go for ? The RXV 863, RXV 661, RXV 563 OR 565. My ratio is 70:30 movies:music. Which one has better features as the HDMI / blue-ray compatibility etc. Right now I am using DENON AVR-1604. I might not need much of power, still 100 RMS is desired. My listening area is not more than 175 sq.ft.

The choice will be between the 663 (not 661) and the 863. The 663 pumps out 90 watts per channel and supports HD audio decoding. The 863 does all that, adds 10 watts per channel more and has upscaling to FullHD. iT also add some 12 to 15 K to the price.

Cheers
