Need help with budget home theatre receiver

I have an old home theatre receiver, only support Dolby pro logic, no sub woofer support. Anyway, I have front and rear speakers plus centre speaker. Wondering which one to get Yamaha RXV385 or the Sony STRDH590, they are both $350.

Not going to get a sub woofer until later but need good ARC support so I don't have to use too many remotes. Thanks in advance.

A 5.0 setup ... definitely add a subwoofer (Polk Audio HTS line or the Klipsch Reference line) ... you will feel and hear the difference.

Go with the Denon AVR-S540BT ... both at the same price at Bestbuy.ca and Visions.ca
