Yamaha RXV-630 retails for $500, bought new at ABT, an authorized retailer. NOT an open box, 2nd or refurb. In excellent, as new condition used very little in a second system. Comes with manual, box, etc. Sell for $250 INCLUDING SHIPPING. A couple of RXV630 have sold for more here. This is an excellent deal from a reputable seller. Check out my 100% ebay feedback under neilr11. Will try to sell here for a couple of days before going to ebay. Please no low ballers, $250 including shipping is cheap enough on this excellent receiver. From the Yamaha site:

POWERFUL HOME THEATER RECEIVER*The RX-V630 is a powerful and versatile 6-channel receiver, delivering 75 watts to each channel. Yamaha's Digital ToP-ART Technology assures the purest circuits and transmission.

POWERFUL SOUND PROCESSINGYamaha's powerful decoding circuitry incorporated into the RX-V630 performs Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital EX, Dolby ProLogic II, DTS, and DTS "ES-Compatible" decoding with extreme accuracy. Yamaha's Quad-Field CINEMA DSP adds an additional rear center soundfield, allowing enjoyment of 6.1 channel movie sound formats. The RX-V630 provides 21 surround programs and offers a total of 41 surround environment variations.

HIGH PERFORMANCE LSIS AND OTHER CIRCUITRYYamaha's proprietary ASIC LSI, the 32-bit YSS-938, assures top quality audio performance.

VERSATILE VIDEO INPUTS AND OUTPUTSEager to take on challenging home theater situations, the RX-V630 has 5 video inputs and 2 video outputs. All have S-video connections in addition to standard RCA jacks. Two component video inputs assure the best possible video signal transmission. Front panel A/V inputs make temporary connections easy.

AUDIO INPUTS AND OUTPUTS FOR EVERY NEEDThe RX-V630 has two audio-only inputs and one audio-only output. Including the audio portion of A/V source inputs, the receiver provides 4 optical and 1 coaxial digital input. In addition, the RX-V630 provides a digital audio output.

AUTO-PRIORITY INPUT SELECTION AND AUTO DECODER SELECTIONWhen a source is selected, the receiver automatically chooses the best quality input connected - component video rather than composite video, etc. The receiver also makes the same automatic selection for decoding, down the hierarchy from discrete multi-channel, to matrix, and then stereo.

PRE-OUTS FOR ALL CHANNELSThe unit provides pre-outs for all channels, including a subwoofer pre-out.

VIRTUAL CINEMA DSPProvides a realistic surround multi-channel surround experience using only two speakers.

SILENT CINEMABuilding on technology incorporated into its world famous "silent" musical instruments, Yamaha has added HRTF and "Virtual" technology to create a realistic surround movie effect using standard, two-channel headphones.

6-CHANNEL INPUTS FOR EXTERNAL DECODERThe RX-V630's rear panel has input jacks to accommodate an external 6-channel decoder making the receiver ready for any other 5.1 channel format, should one be developed.

LOW IMPEDANCE DRIVE CAPABILITY AND IMPEDANCE SWITCHINGYamaha's famed low impedance drive circuitry is included in this receiver so that it can handle virtually all loads and a wide variety of speakers. For further speaker matching, the amplifier can set for either 4- or 8-ohm speakers.

LINEAR DAMPING FACTOR CIRCUITThe advantage of full range, 20 to 20,000 Hz, damping is that it improves the definition and resolution of the sound output throughout the audible frequency range.

DIGITALLY REGULATED VOLUME CONTROL FOR ALL CHANNELSPrecise volume adjustment and matching is made possible via Yamaha's digitally regulated volume control. Adjustments can be made by turning the knob on the receiver or through the remote keypad.

VERSATILE REMOTEFor easy operation, the RX-V630 comes with Yamaha's remote control featuring built-in preset codes to control other audio or video components.

A/B SPEAKER SELECTORAllows selection of either a first set of speakers main speaker or a second -- or both.

SLEEP TIMERPermits a delayed receiver turn off. You can set it for up to two hours in 30 minute increments.

40-STATION DIRECT ACCESS PRESET TUNINGUp to 40 preset AM and FM stations can be grouped in five groups eight stations. These groupings make it easy for family members to easily access their favorite stations or to have musical genres, such as all the jazz stations, grouped together.

MULTI-WAY BINDING POST SPEAKER TERMINALSYamaha's heavy-duty binding post speaker terminals for all channels accept banana plugs, spade connectors, and a variety of speaker wire, including heavy gauge cable.
