If you're considering the A9050, it's $399 on Crutchfield. So, I'd get the Yamaha A S500 (it's $399 as well.) It appears to be a step up from the A S300. Different chassis, nearly 3 lbs heavier. More power. Also, it seems that the spk. binding posts on the 500 are better quality. I've heard good things about the new Yamaha Receivers. My vote goes for the A S500.
