I'm considering replacing my existing Creek amp & tuner with something more current & particularly like the idea of being able to listen to internet radio & play flac files resident of my NAS drive, together with more conventional sources - minidisc, cassette & CD decks. The problem is that there's little said about these receivers in the forums. Is that ominous? I'm looking at the Yamaha R-N602 & the Pioneer SX-N30. The former has a slight edge on paper with twice as many coax & optical inputs & a "Direct" option to bypass superfluous circuitry. I'd appreciate some feedback from users on their sound & their usability. Speakers will be Castle Acoustics Severns 2.
