    Hi all,

    I know that Yamaha has just release the 040 receivers
    (i.e. RX-V440, RX-V540, RX-V640, and RX-V740). Does
    anybody know when Yamaha will be releasing replacements
    for the RX-V2300 and RX-V3300 and what new features will
    they contain?

    Thanks....

    Darrin, I have an rx-v2200. (about the year and a half old model). I bought it around february 02. It was released around october of 01. The 2300 was released about the same time last year. So if the pattern holds true I would expect to see the replacements for the 1300 and 2300 released late summer or early fall. This is of course just a guess. I would assume the new models will have up-conversion, maybe a bit more power and upgraded DAC's. Possibly burr brown although this is just a guess/whish [​IMG]. I am sure they will still have 6 channels. Yamaha seems a bit stubborn to enter the 7 channel world. Again all of which I sad is just and educated guess, I am just following the pattern of the last few receivers. Maybe someone who sells Yammie on this board can chip in some more hints.

    Evan is right. I had to wait for my rx-v1200 to come out and it did around October 2001. The new models should come out around that time this year. Who knows what new features they will have.
