    Hi there,

    I have the RX-V530 and considering whether to upgrade to the RX-V630. One of the major differences between the two is the Digital Top-ART. I have read all about it but was just wondering how much of a difference it will really noticeably make in the sound department, both for music and movies.


    Cheers

    Isn't that just marketing hype for their amp sections? Unless there is some major feature in the 630 you can't live without I wouldn't consider that much of an upgrade.

    According to Yamaha a its a better board layout to minimize interference between the amp & pre-amp sections. In addition, you will pick-up these things with the 630:

    1. DTS ES capability
    2. Pre-outs on all channels
    3. A/B speaker switching
    4. 1 extra optical input(4 instead of 3)
    5. 5 S-Video inputs instead of 4

    For the small price difference, I think it would be a worthy upgrade, all things considered.

    Has anyone else actually compared the sound of the 530 versus the 630 side by side?

    In a nutshell, how will digital top art benefit the actual sound qaulity.
