    I saw this model at Costco in Burnaby, BC the other day. It appears to have the same feature set as the RV31 (MP3, component out, etc.) but without the jog dial. I checked both the US and Canadian websites, but it's not listed.
    Anyone know about this model? Is the picture quality the same as the RV31? If so, I might just pick one up for the bedroom...

    Hi Chuck,
    Thanks for replying. I didn't even know there was an RV20!
    Anyway, I checked the back of the display model, and it did in fact have component outputs. The back looked exactly the same as my RV31. It even has DTS out via optical output...

    Hey Allan,
    I've never heard of that model either. How much was it selling for there?

    Hi Vu,
    It was selling for $279.99 (Canadian dollars, of course!)

    These are model numbers indicating it will be sold in non-electronics stores like Costco, K-Mart, Walmart, etc.
    Denon and Yamaha do this with their products, giving different model numbers for their receivers, depending on where and how they're sold.
    The RV21 sounds like a slightly stripped down version of the RV31. There is also a RV26, which is exactly the same as the RV31 and sells for the same $180 price, but you find it at K-Mart, Walmart, etc. instead of Circuit City and other home electronics shops.
