    I AM CONSIDERING MY FIRST HOME THEATER RECEIVER: LOOKING AT THE YAMAHA RXV3300 AND THE NEW RXV2400. THE 3300 HAS JUST BEEN DISCONTINUED, AND IS AVAILABLE FOR NEARLY HALF PRICE. WITH A LIST OR $1500 VS $1000 FOR THE 24OO AND WEIGHING 15 POUNDS MORE, IT SEEMS LIKE A VERY GOOD VALUE. CAN ANYONE OFFER COMMENTS OR OPINIONS. I HAVE SEEN NO REVIEWS OF THE 3300. THANKS GEORGE

    I was faced with the same decision about a month ago and I went with the 3300 because the amplifier section is substantially better in build quality. I am very happy with my decision. I think I still have 4 or 5 days left on my 30day reciept so I could go exchange it if I wanted to.. I purchased it from Good Guys so I dont have to worry about my warranty , anyways I paid $999 for it so I have quite a few options at this price point.
    I most certainly wont be returning it though. [​IMG]

    Good points James.

    No doubt in my mind the 3300 is a superior receiver but with the new features of the 2400 it makes it a tuff choice. That YPAO is cool, the 7 channel vs 6 channel, THX certified (matters to some, not really myself), as well as a few other things makes the 1400 & 2400 look like very nice options. Hopefully Yamaha will relize the need for the 3400 and get it out on the market real quick, the jump from the 2400 to the Z9 is just to big to not have something in-between in my opinion.
