    Hi,

    I see the RXV1 for a great price on the net, is this worth spending $1000 for, when the new RXZ1 coming out soon???

    Oh I have a yamaha 2095 now!!

    Thanks

    Jack

    If you already have a 2095, don't go with RXV1. Skip at least one generation.

    Jack, I was in the same position last year. Had a 2095 and then all the hype over es/ex gave me the itis..... went to a local B&M and bought the V1. I paid 2600 for mine and DO NOT regret it. Personally I'd say skip the Z1 and go for the V1.

    If you can get one of these beauties for 1000 bucks, I highly suggest it. The 2095 is one fine piece but the V1 is better by quite a bit IMHO. The weight of it alone over the 2095 (62 vrs 42 I think) makes a statement about build too.

    Also nothing sounds quite like those 44 bit Burr Brown DACs. I haven't even checked into the Z1 but some earlier posts had suggested Yamaha had downgraded to 32 bit or something... check for yourself.

    BUTTTTTT..... at the price you stated, it'd be a cheap upgrade especially after you sell your 2095.

    I love my RX-V1 also. Now the newer ones have some nice features, such as assignable inputs and more type of DTS, but at $1000, that is one hell of a deal. I'd definitely go with it. I don't think you'll find many receivers for $1000 that have the quality of components or anywhere near the number of inputs this beast has. Plus if you got a good remote like the Pronto, the extended IR codes are really cool.

    Jack the DSP-A1 was a step up from the 2095, the RX-V1 bested the DSP-A1 by a couple steps.Grab the RX for a bill. I have had all three and the RX is a great unit for that price!I have gone to seperates but remember the RX fondly.
