hi, doesn't seem like there are much of these... think the industry will make 2010 the year of the green for their receiver lineups? I'm looking for low idle wattage components to build my home theater... anyone have suggestions?

Yamaha/Denon doesn't have much at all.

Since none of them consume significant amounts of power in standby, I'd suggest not overthinking this.

A bit like AlGore telling the pilot of his private jet "Hey, throttle down from 400mph to 395, it's GREENER!"

You can check the Energy Star ratings published by the federal govt... they have a list (short one) of current equipment & how much power is used.

Depends how do you define significant; in any case, it's about 100 W for a 7-ch receiver.
