between the two u are showing i would go for the cheaper one, because they are identically the same, the name difference and the front face is different between them only due to different marketing schemes and different store chains
right now, www.futureshop.ca has the 5890 for 699 (300 dollar discount)
but its an older model, 5990 is already out thats why the older one is on sale, 5990 is like 1299 right now , WOW, for basically the same unit,
i had the 5830 returned it, wasnt happy with its power, exagerated ratings and got the pioneer vsx-1015tx instead using JBL E90 2.1 setup with a dual 12 inch quest type q sub
Looking for some fairly quick information on opinions on my deciding between a Yamaha HTR 5890 or a RX-V659.
XM Radio and IPOD are not really needed so I am not considering them in the equation.
I hope some reviewers can help in this decision-making.
