    I saw a post below stating that 6th ave is now upgrading the rxv1300 and rxv2300 to the 1400 just like they are doing with the denon 3803. Does anyone know if this is accurate information? Is 6th ave an authorized Yamaha dealer offering the full manufacturer's warranty, as they are with Denon? Has anyone on the board taken advantage of this deal yet?

    I think in the Refurb Denon 3803 thread someone did order the 1300/1400 and was upgraded to the 1400. I believe they are an authorized Yamaha dealer, but not sure how that works selling the 1300/1400 over the internet. Technically these models are for in-store sales, only.

    They are an authorized Yamaha Dealer, they did get authorization for selling the 1300/2300 over the Internet. But since they have "run out" of those models they are doing the upgrade to the better ones, but you still get the full warranty and everything.

    I should be receiving my 1400 tomorrow. There's a big thread on avsforum.com about it in the receiver section.

    It's all legit from what I could tell and from talking to the guys...but heck, for that price even if I don't get the warranty, I don't really care, I've never had a problem with one receiver yet (knock on wood)...so I'll take my chances.

    They are NIB and do have the DPL-IIx.. acouple people have already gotten them.

    Does anyone know what the true wattage of this receiver is? I'm thinking of replacing my DSP-A1 with it. The DSP-A1 is rated at 110 per channel and puts out 116 according to this site:

    I'm hoping it's really 110 as I don't want to downgrade too much. Thanks.
