Looking to upgrade my current Yamaha RX-A2040 in the near future. The only reason for upgrading is to be able to run 7.2.4, as the A2040 can only run 5.2.4, or 7.2.2 \n\nThe two above mentioned AVR are the ones I've been looking at. Both are similarly priced 3700$ for the Yamaha vs 4000$ for the Anthem (Canadian). Both capable of 11 (or more) channels of Audio. \n\nI'm currently running a 7.2 set up, with a crappy L\/C\/R I bought 5.5 years ago, but recently upgraded to 2 Paradigm Defiance X12 subwoofers and 4 KEF Q150 for Side\/Rear surrounds. I'm upgrading the front Soundstage to Paradigm Premiere 800F towers ×3 (along with an ATS) in the very near future. \n\nThoughts on those two AVR, or is there something else I should be looking at? \n\nCheers.
