Default Onkyo RC360 or Yamaha RX-V373?

So I'm debating between these two recievers to go with my Jamo S 426 system that I can get off Amazon. I will be getting the BIC America F12subwoofer as well. The Onkyo has more bells and whistles (internet connectivity, more HDMI, is a 7.2, etc) than the Yamaha. The Yamaha is a 5.1 I can buy the Onkyo for $250 at accessories4less and I can get the Yamaha for $200 after using my gift cards at Best Buy.

Which route do you think would be best to go? Someone told me that Onkyo certaintly gives you more options underneath the hood, but that Yamaha provides better video and audio when testing them against one another. How do you think the actual specs compare (wattage and such)?

So what do you guys think? If not any of these two, which would you recommend within this price range ($200-275)? Thanks!!!

Onkyo stuffs everything they can into thier AVR's. That creates some issues often with the equipment. Buying at acc4less is a terrific idea as they have been gone over twice at the factory. Yamaha has reverted to real good equipment agin. They did go off a bit a few years ago. I would opt for more power instead of bells and whistles.

They look like very similar units. The Onkyo provides a bit more power but the Yamaha is new not reman.

I have no clue which to pick which is why i generally end up with Denon.

I almost got an onkyo 515 when I was looking for a receiver. Mainly because of all the connections, but when I got to thinking about it I really didn't need all of them. So instead I got a yamaha v473 (one step up from the v373). I really like the v473 and I think the only difference between the two is the v473 has a discrete amp vs the v373's chip amp. (I could be wrong on that) I'm pretty sure the features are the same. I'm sure I would have been happy with the onkyo and I think you'd be happy with either one. Just try and think about all the things you might hook up to it now and in the future and make sure the receiver has the right connections for those so you don't have to upgrade for awhile...
