Wow just saw and heard the new Yamaha's at Best Buy today and I must admit I was really impressed, before you say it I know about the poor listening conditions there but the sound was really very impressive and these things are gorgeous!!! Makes me wonder what they would sound like with some decent cable hooked up to them (By the way these things are wired internally with Monster Cable!) . I was really thinking about getting the JBL's N38s until I heard these. I thought the midrange was excellent and very natural, the bass response was also much better the I thought from the two 6 1/2 in woofers. So now I'm undecided again just picked up a Denon 3802 last month that I'm extremely happy with for an unbelievable price by the way. So I decided to come here to one of my absolutely favorite places on the internet to the brotherhood of stereo fanatics like myself. So what do you guys think of the new Yamaha's (are they just another pretty face ) really looking forward to your opinions and comments I really value them a lot. You guys have been a tremendous help in assisting me in putting my system together. Anybody out there had a chance to compare these two if you haven't seen or heard them and there's a Best Buy in your area stop by and give them a listen. Looking forward hearing from ya. Thanks Tom j.
