Help which Yamaha Surround Receiver


I am looking to buy a new surround set

I have looked at the Boston Acoustics XS 5.1 SE Speaker set

Receiver I have looked at these three:

Yamaha RX-V675

Yamaha RX-V575

Yamaha RX-V477

If I take a 7.1 system I am planning on getting two extra speakers. I am going to use it to movies mostly.

Any pro and cons?

Thanks in advance

I have just bought a 675, very pleased with it. Sound quality is excellent, I am using it in 5.1 mode. It has hdmi pass through in standby which is useful, but this will not work if hdmi control is set to on. It is heavily discounted at the moment, Richer Sounds have it for £249, so you get a good bang for your buck! The only criticism I have, applies to most receivers on the market now, is there is no switched mains out, so I am having to make up a switching device to be operated by the 12 volt trigger supply to power up the subwoofer.
