I bought a 501 on line and it works fine. Today I found a 595 at a yard sale for $35 and was wondering how they compare. I want to give the not quite as good one to a friend.

So far I have noted Onkyo's rating of 65 watts RMS 6 channel for the 501 and 75 watts RMS 5 channel for the 595.

The 595 only does 5.1 while the 501 does 6.1 - not a big deal for me either way at this point.

Both are listed at 0.08% distortion.

Anyone got any more info or experience? Thanks.

Not yet - been busy today.

My guess is that 10 watts RMS per channel won't make a big difference on my speakers.

The 595 also does not list a crossover to sub level. Because it lets the sub handle it and does not mess with it? The 501 has an adjustable crossover frequency level.

I guess I should explain - I don't trust my ears for one or two listens. Over a few months I would know which was better, but it seems on any given day I can get pretty subjective.

Also, maybe one day I would realize that the subwoofer cross over or some other feature is really needed and would kick myself for giving away the wrong receiver.

Listen to them first, and after that compare the differences of the features.
