Yamaha has just announced a new receiver that has the exact featureset I'm looking for, at a price I can afford. Ever since seeing the new receiver offerings from DENON that include HDMI switching, I've been patiently waiting for the competition to begin. This new Yamaha not only switches HDMI sources, but also upconverts every video source to HDMI and to 720p/1080i. That's sweet. It's got all the power I'll need also, at 130W/Ch. Information I've been able to gather says that it will be available sometime in October. I was wondering if anyone has more info...specifically if you're considering getting this one or you know where you'll buy it. If you know of an authorized dealer, feel free to pass the info on. What I've read says the RX-V line is sold in B&M stores exclusively, not over the web. (http://www.yamaha.com/yec/customer/FAQs/faq00.htm) My one question is whether this will drive a pair of 4Ohm speakers. I've got a 7.1 setup with 4Ohm towers for the L and R channels in the front.
