    Jason,

    Every Yamaha receiver I have seen has an a/b speaker switch. I have the RX-V800 and it does.

    However, I have not personally seen the two you mention, but would be suprised if they don't.

    im just concerned because the previous models 420 and 520 had a/b swtiching mentioned in bold on yamahas website under the description while the 530 and 430 do not. but, they are new so i'm sure some info was left out.

    We got them in last week and they do not have A/B switching. The information in the links Norman provided is correct, not a misprint.

    I have seen the amps there is no a/b switching and no seperate balance for the Fronts. I was leaning towards the rxv530, but I don't know I might just fork over the extra dough and get the denon 1802.

    Jason,

    I have the RX-V3200 and I'm quite sure it's set at 90Hz. I have the bass signals going to both of my L/R mains & my subwoofer by the way. It's a personal preference depending on the individual, the quality of your front speakers, and the size of your ht room. Hope this helps you.

    Has anyone listened to the 430 or 530 yet. I am very interested in getting a secound receiver for my bedroom and I am curious as to what they sound like.

    thanks
