I am considering replacing my old AV receiver. I'm not a major audiophile and I don't need all of the top-end bells and whistles. Really all I need is an optical audio out, 5.1 channel or more, AirPlay compatability, and I want to cap the price at $300. I've found these two that fit this criteria... http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00B981F2O/ http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009HB2USI/ I don't really have any brand preference. These both seem to be essentially the same receiver. The one thing I did notice is that the HK is about 5 lbs. lighter than the Yamaha. I don't know if that really matters, but it's been my experience that the more heft/density with audio equipment, often times the better it performs. Thoughts?
