Hi, I want to get a new home theater system to replace my Logitech z-5500. I narrow down to Yamaha rx-v3800 and Pioneer Elite vsx-94txh. I lean toward the Yamaha, but I want to hear what other has to say about the 2 before I made the decision. Based on Amazon.com, Yamaha cost $300 more than Pioneer. They both have the same functionality. I know Yamaha has their reputation, but is it worth $300?

Also, other than Amazon.com, is there other places I can purchase the receiver at a good price? Any good recommendation would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your comments in advance.
