My first post here - only wish I had found this site before I bought my first receiver. I am on a slow path to upgrading my HT setup. I would like to know if anyone can help with the following questions I have. 1. Any reviews of the Yamaha RX-V630 (as compared to simlarly priced receivers). I haven't seen many on the web. 2. What front speakers would go well with that receiver (and a budget constraint of $500 - I am from New Zealand but am quoting US$ here, which will translate to about $1500 NZ$ regardless of exchange rate). To provide more info I am looking to upgrade from my STRDE475. As far as I can see the 630 gives me an upgrade to nice speaker binding posts, s-video and component video inputs and outputs, DPLII, more optical outputs and 6.1 capability. And its at the edge of my price range too. I currently have a an Energy S8.2 sub, Sony DVP-S535 DVD (both of which I am very happy with), Wharfedale Atlantic centre and some modest Sony midi system front and surrounds (next to be upgraded). I've recently upgraded my speaker cable to Monster MCX-1s and MCX-5s (thats what the cable says but I can't find it on the Monster website) for some future-proofing so would be keen to know what sort of bi-wirable fronts would go with the RXV630. Cheers.
