    What's the difference? Is one an older series, or is one better equipped for home theater (DVD's) and the other for music?

    More specifically, what's the differences between the rx-v1400 and the HTR-5590? Thanks![​IMG]

    I thought the RX-v1400 was a 7.1 receiver????

    So then are you saying that the HTR-5590 is only 5.1 or 6.1? And is that the main difference between the two? Is one geared more for music and the other for home theater?

    I know that 5.1, 6.1, and 7.1 mean 5,6, and 7 channels, but where does the ".1" come from? Sorry, just trying to learn the audiophile lingo. [​IMG] Thanks!

    from the yamaha faq:

    i have the 5590 and love it. gets pretty loud, sounds good, nice subtle dsp modes, plenty of inputs, decent remote, etc. but i got it via my employee discount, so it was really a no-brainer for me....

    Wade, the ".1" comes from whatever powered subwoofer you choose to use.

    I do show the HTR-5590 as a 6.1 receiever, and the RX-V1400 as a 7.1 receiever that also offers a Second Zone, if you choose to use 5.1 with it.

    Thanks John, and you too Ted. [​IMG]

    I've got one other question.... besides the 10W/channel, the only significant difference I see between the rx-v1400 and the rx-v2400 is the RS-232C. What is that?

    RS-232 is most used to access and que up MP3 discs from MP3 jukes and players...

    I am not real familure with it myself though....

    The RX-V equivalent of the HTR5590 is the RX-V1300, which of course has been replaced by the 1400. (However, one difference btwn the 5590 and the 1300 is that the 5590 does not have pre-outs for an amp.)

    Anyway, glad to see there's a FAQ about this one, given how often it comes up.

    The 1400 has YPAO which is not there in 5590 or the 1300.
