Yamaha Receivers

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.

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, 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

MindMelt....A Question For You

You mentioned in your post that you are running your JBL's with a ''dual 12'' quest type q sub.'' I presume that is an unpowered sub enclosure designed for cars. Is that correct? Can you give more specifics? What impedence load is that sub providing to the Pioneer receiver?

How specifically do you have it hooked up to your Pioneer receiver?

BUT I'D BUY the receiver that has the features and specs you want; quickly, I'd say do some more pricing, and buy a model that you have no second thoughts about.

Good shopping,

Correct me if I'm wrong but, I believe the RX-V series has more features than the HTR series.

I know the HTR 5890 has a few more input/outputs but only has two component inputs. The TX-v659 has three component inputs but a little less wattage. Would you go with the additional component inputs?
Also what are some good $400-$500 subs?
