At the moment, I am leaning toward buying the Yamaha rx-v1300, but I am also looking at the rx-v2300. Looking at Yamaha’s comparison charts, it looks like the difference between the two is the same as the difference between the 2200s and the 1200s (and the rx-v1300 in turn looks like an updated 2200). I was wondering if those who tested the 2200 and 1200 noticed a big difference. Seems the biggest difference – aside from remote and multi-room ability – was 20 more watts of power for the 2200. And yet, both units weighed 33 pounds, leading me to believe that the power supply and amps were quite similar. You would have had to step up to the RXZ line or the 3200 before the unit jumped to 46 pounds. Assuming the 2300 and 1300 are as similar as I think, I figure to go with the 1300.
