We are dealing with two leaders in the hi-fi equipment industry. Therefore, when comparing mid-priced AV receivers from Pioneer and Yamaha, it goes without saying that both companies can offer a good standard and various features. However, we can only afford one, and we can only listen to one at a time. So, which one should we choose?
