how to sound as good as V1800...price also double for the V1800....


Speakers Impedance:-

for 6 ohm setting:-
Front A or B - 4 ohm min
Front A + B - 6 ohm min
others - 8 ohm min

for 8 ohm setting:-
Front A or B - 6 ohm min
Others - 8 ohm min

so for 8 ohm speakers should not be any problem at all ...

and this one got 2 sub-woofer out thumbup.gif
so it's a 7.2 channel receiver actually...

There's another latest model from Yammy, RX-V863, around RM3K plus but lacking an Anchor Bay ABT1010 scaler chip (from RX-V1800) but for a few hundred ringgit more, better get RX-V1800 unless you don't need an upscaling thingy.

I found out that Yamaha RX-V1800 / RX-V3800 & Denon AVR-2808 / AVR-3808 are both using Burr-Brown PCM1791 DACs for all channels and not the latest Burr Brown PCM1792 (used in Onkyo SR805) with a signal to noise ration around 123db. drool.gif

Of course, I'm not saying PCM1791 is inferior lah but potong steam mah when you spend so much and not getting the latest DAC pulak. doh.gif Of course, my current budget now is for a RX-V1800 the most, can't afford Onkyo SR805 to be honest. Headache. rclxub.gif

The 3k+ for V863 is list price (same like V861, I get quote from Yamaha direct is RM3,150 but get from outside final price RM2.6k)
FYI, The V661 and 861 also using Burrbrown DAC brows.gif

US start shipping the V663 mid of March...so I think it will only available here around May/Jun....

actually, most reviews don't bother to check 95W at 8 ohms at how many channels loaded.. if run at 7channels full steam, may not be 95W each (depending on brand and how they rate their amps)..
