Am I going out of my mind?
I had bought the Yamaha 5540 and was immensely pleased with CD and DVD sound. I decided to exchange it, however, because it had only one coax input and both my HD terminal and DVD players have that output as the only digital source.
I had intended on getting the 5590 until I realized it was going for $999
So the salesman sold me on the HK, which has 3 coax digital inputs and would cost me about $300 with my exchange.
Well, now that I have it set up, and after about a 2 hour learning curve, I must say that I am not near as impressed with the sound detail as the Yamaha, expecially at lower volume.
Please someone tell me I'm not crazy. I am seriously considering going back and getting the Yamaha and just getting another DVD player with optical output (I'm due to upgrade it anyways).
I should mention that I have only a two loudspeaker system right now (Energy X-25's). Perhaps the Yamaha is better for this???
I should also mention that yes, I have specified these speakers as LARGE in my setup, and selected NONE for all the speakers I don't have.
