    Yeah, me too -- 'round 8 months --
    I strongly believe you wouldn't be left wanting more.

    What speakers will you be using?

    Had mine for a couple of weeks now and am liking it more and more each day. I use it 75/25 music/movies. The sound continues to improve with use. My old A/V receiver had run out of inputs and I shopped and looked hard for 6 weeks before getting the RX-V1300. Ya I could of spent twice the money but would that of gotten me twice what I now have. I do not find it "Bright" as has been said about older models of Yamaha's. I am also still getting used to DPL II and DTS NEO and both of them do have their uses in both movies, tv and even music.

    Geoff H. good to see others from Utah posting here. Where do you shop at in Salt Lake City, I have used both Broadway and Audioworks myself.

    Alton,
    Just curious, what kinds of factors are motivating you to upgrade? I only ask because I'm thinking about making a similar upgrade (from the rx-v496 to the rx-v1300). I'm waiting for the 1300 to come down a bit, though.

    Thanks --

    I like mine, even though though the first one I had died after 9 days, and its replacement arrived with a DOA preamp out. But it has some useful features such as the Zone 2 output and the ability to select any audio input while watching a video source. Sometimes it gets confused and thinks the DVD is a DTS source, even though the player is not DTS capable. It gets stuck in that mode and has to be powered off and back on to get out of it. It takes a while to set it up and get it properly tuned for your environment, but once you're done, it sounds very very good.
