It seems DM, Yamaha, and Anthem are the 3 big AVR heavyweights these days. I think a lot of newbies would love to get some perspective on these three brands. What are their pros and cons?\n\nIf you have owned all three brands of AVR, your opinions would be greatly appreciated.\n\nIf you have at least listened\/tried all three brands (at friends' and relatives' houses or even dealers),your opinions would also be greatly appreciated.\n\nOr if you have general opinions about DM, Yamaha, Anthem, or any other brand (Emotiva, NAD, Sony, etc.),let's hear them too. :D\n\nGrab your popcorn and let the fights begin! :eek::D\n\nI believe many members look forward to seeing what @M Code, @PENG, and @TLS Guy have to say.\n\nActually, TLS Guy abhors all AVR, but his opinion is always welcomed on other topics such as Dirac vs ARC vs Audyssey vs YPAO vs Lyngdorf, vs Trinnov vs Harman EQ that are used on some AVR and AVP. :D\n\nAre any of these Room Correction software worth your money?\n\nIs price, reliability, or features the salient factor?
