    Saw this in the backlog and had to answer. Yes the 3300 has two subwoofer outs. It is also NOT "bright". Don't know why this stigma is still talked about. The "brightness" ended a long time ago and doesn't apply to the 3300. This is a fabulous receiver and I don't know why it doesn't get the credit it duely deserves. I have not seen a major paperback publication that has even reviewed this great piece of machinery. It is built like a tank and is just as heavy (about 50 lbs). Just ask anyone who owns the 3300 and they will tell you how great it is (I will). It's not just a Yamaha thing. It's just barely a step below the flagship Z1 and better than the previous flagship V1. It's also got a rare attribute of being actually built in Japan. It may not have 7.1, but ya gotta think "do I actully need 7.1"? There is NO discrete 7.1 tracks even available--it will only be matrixed between the two rear centers. And I haven't seen to many threads about how great PLIIx is either (for 7.1). In the end it's up to you, but the 3300 is the rare receiver that deserves more attention than it gets. [​IMG] All IMHO of course. Take care.
