    I like the great array of features this model has over say, the Denon 3803 and the 45tx even though it is not a 'THX' rated box. I'm buying a 5.1/7.1 set of Paradigm Monitor series speakers and was leaning towards the Denon until I heard about this deal. It was likened to a 4802 at a 3803 price with more features and watts. I have not listened to it yet . . . is the old bias still true? Are the Yamahas all pretty bright or is the higher-end line better balanced? Can't I adjust any perceived brightness out of the soundfield with their set-up parms?? Will this receiver give me more bang-for-the-buck and still have a mellow enough sound with the Paradigms to please my lady?? Thanks for your thoughts!!!

    Yamaha makes a great product. But, I think with some of their new receivers coming out, the RXV-3300 can be had for less that $1000, authorized. I have a 45TX and am very happy with it, but if I had to go out and buy a new receiver tomorrow, the new Elites, Yamaha 3300/2400, and Marantz 7300OSE/8300 would be on my short list.

    nope...if the receiver is defective Yamaha won't want to hear about it. just spend a few extra bucks and get it from a authorized dealer and save the headaches. the local "Sound Advice" had the 3300 for $950 but i went with a HK7200 instead...it has the warmer sound you might be looking for.
