My eight year old Denon 3200 receiver is about to pass away after many thousands of hours of use. I've been looking at a number of replacement receivers including the Yamaha RX-V1500 and RX-V2500. Part of what interests me is the "Night Listening Enhancer" mode on the Yamahas. I'm in an old apartment building with wood floors so sound travels very easily. If I'm watching a movie late in the eveneing I find that I must keep my remote right at hand so I can adjust the volume up and down. I know, you're going to say move into a freestanding house so I can enjoy my music and movies at whatever volume I like whenever I want. However I was wanting to know those Yamaha receiever owners out there: what is your feeling about the Night Listening mode? Does is do the trick? Do you no longer have to keep your remote right by your side when watching late at night?
