Returned the Denon with a lump in my throat. Great receiver and a steal at $449.00. There were just a few things in the Onkyo TX-NR6050 that made it the preferable unit for me even when adding the extra $50 bucks. I’ll sit the Yamaha next to the Onkyo for awhile before assigning it to another room. I like looking at it. It tickles me.
