    Where can I buy the Yamaha RX-V1GL? I would like to get this reciever for my mini theatre. I called a bunch of places in the area and couldn't find this old model in stock anymore. The last prices that most stores had on these were between $1200 and $1400USD. I would rather get a new one from a B&M in the SF bay area, or maybe a well known online etailer. I would really like the GL version as the colour matches all of the other source devices like my DMR-E10, LD, Sony DVD and SACD players.

    The Tweeter chain stores, Hi-Fi Buys in Atlanta, Sound Advice in Florida was selling them recently for $1299 if you have any Tweeters in San Francisco and you haven,t yet tryed them, give them a call they may still have some although at that price doubt it. BTW it a great receiver.

    Thank for you help Jerry but those stores are not in the SF bay area. I've tried calling a lot of stores in the area, maybe like 20 or so stores of mass market retail chains, speciality and mom & pops. The ones that have it only either have the display models at a higher than $1.4k price, or the RX-V1 (black).
