I have owned a RX-v2095 for the last 3 years. While it has been a great receiver, there have always been a few things that drove me nuts. The remote's lack of room for non-Yamaha components, no rename-able inputs, no 24bit dacs (if my ears could even hear the diff)and the biggie, no all-channel stereo. I happened upon the RX-V3000 on closeout at the GoodGuys for $750, new in-box with their 3 yr. extended warranty thrown in. I couldn't resist the deal, so I bought it on the spot. To shorten this long story, after listening to it, it almost seems like it sounds a little diffefent than the 2095, a little more rolled off in the treble(though I haven't reconnected the 2095 to confirm this). Is it the 24bit/96khz DACs, the TOPART chassis, or my imagination? Thanks!
