I think I will still check the Yamaha v861 but also add the Denon 2808CI to my list.
I would definitely check out the Yamaha RX-V861. In fact, Andrew Robinson did a great review on it in AVREV.COM. You should definitely read it. Rotel less than Denon. I know in my experience, their separates, especially the preamps, bested some really highly regarded folks. Can`t really speak for the receiver lineup though.
