    I just tried to order one from onecall and the sales rep. told me they dont sell them via mail order. He then told me the HTR-5490 is just about the same unit. How true is this guys. Im looking for a new reciever since my 2802 disappeared from my brothers house along with some other gear that got stolen. How good is the Onkyo 600? I could get that from J&R since they ship to the VI.

    I do not believe that there is a significant difference between the RX-V and the HTR Yamaha lines. One is designed for audio retailer sale, and the other for online/mass market retail sale. I think there are some subtle differences, such as the color of the lettering on the faceplate. I would go ahead and buy the one Onecall said was the same as the model you wanted.

    ManojM is correct. The best way to verify that the HTR-5490 is the RX-V1200 equivalent is to check at www.yamaha.com by looking up both models and comparing the specs.
    Some people seem to think that the HTR line is inferior to the RX-V line. These people are wrong. If you look for it you will find a statement on the Yamaha site stating that the two are identicle except for the front panel which has a different "Yamaha" logo and model number. Everything else (including price) is the same, they are even built in the same factory.

    I believe the remote is different between the two as well. But it sucks either way. Invest in a good universal remote.

    I don't think the 5490 has preouts which means it can't be upgraded in the future. Also if I remember right there was a post on this forum where someone had compared the two receivers & that the 5490 seemed to be on the bright side compared to the 1200. Try doing a search on this forum for the report.
