Hi all,

I have narrowed down my receiver choices to these 2(not that there are alot of choices):

Pioneer 5.1Ch. 4K Ultra HD and 3D PassThrough AV Home Theater Receiver Black VSX-530-K - Best Buy

or

Yamaha 650W 5.1Ch. 4K Ultra HD and 3D PassThrough AV Home Theater Receiver Black RX-V379BL - Best Buy

both are about the same but the Pioneer is $30 less.

Or is the Yamaha bundle a better value?

Yamaha 650W 5.1Channel 3D Home Theater System Black YHT-4920UBL - Best Buy

I dont think the old speakers with cable wires will be useable on either.

I'd go with the Yamaha. It has HDCP 2.2, which I think is the thing of the future? Forget the bundle.

If your TV has HDMI [arc] purchase the receiver with arc channel. It's a great feature to have. Also, if you're into vinyl and have a turntable, buy the receiver with a 'phono in' connect.

You may want to go to "crutchfield.com" and read the customer reviews, also the questions, and answers relating to each one of the receivers above. It takes a little time, but it's free

While you're at Crutchfield and interested in 4k AV/receiver, take a look at Denon AVR-X2200W
Decodes Dolby Atmos, Bluetooth, Apple airplay

crutchfield.com has too few reviews to bother with. I'd rather spent 1hr reading the hundreds of reviews on BB or B&H instead.

If you want the most customer reviews, look at Amazon. Anyway, what I like about Crutchfield is all the free technical information about the products it sells. The information relates to component features and what these do, speaker and component placement around the house, and so on. The when you buy a car receiver, amp, speakers, etc., the units come with full installation instructions, plus harness to fit your vehicle if you buy a head unit, a DIN tool to remove the old head unit (if required), and a lifetime technical assistance should you need any. On top of that, one of the top customer services in the nation, and free shipment to Alaska and other destinations, regardless of how large or heavy the merchandize is. Amazon does the same, but I doubt it can match Crutchfield's customer support, since you are talking to a real person on the line.

Yes, the merchandize may cost a little more than B&H and Amazon, but that's about it.
