Unless you need the MHL feature of the new VX-x75 line (look it up), you might instead look for a deal on the RX-V473. The 473 is last year's model that's one notch higher than the 375, and the 473 (and 475, for that matter) have better, more powerful amps than the 375 (and likewise the 373). I don't see any awesome deals on the 473 at the moment, but if you do, jump on it.

That being said, the 375 will totally play music and movies through those Polk speakers. It will be fine.

I came from the hifi store and they already discontinued the 375, available is 373, what are the difference of these two? the 373 are newer than the 375?

I think you have it backwards. The 375 and 475 are newer than the 373 and 473, which are discontinued. The differences are minimal. Mainly the use of MHL for connecting phones.

Here's the main thread:

what would you suggest in your taste? should I buy again the Denon AVR? or the Yamaha AVR? I had before the entry level of Denon AVR 1312+ Lord 5.1 Pure acoustic, and I gave to my father, now I'm thinking to buy in my own, my budget is only for entry level AVR with the package as well. Here at the mall sale of Denon AVR 1713+Boston xs 5.1, Should I buy the Denon AVR 1713 even it doesn't have the 3d and passthrough analog to hdmi? Please I need your advice, I cannot wait to buy this month avr which is which..

If you can get the Denon 1713 for the same price as the Yamaha 375, go for the Denon. Even being an older model it has more features (including networking) and better amplifiers. The Denon does pass through 3D video and, although you're correct that it doesn't convert analog video to HDMI, it's not common for entry level receivers to do that.

I picked up a V373 last year and it has done everything I want. I use entry level speakers (BIC) and never go past -16 master volume to fill a large living room, usually I'm at -22 to -34 depending on specific movie, game, music.

I like the DSP's for older movies not mixed well and Yamaha's reliability. If features are most important then they are probably low on lists. Put extra money towards a nice subwoofer.

Does the 475 have better amps than the 375? It is only 10 more watts. Specifics please, I am trying to decide between the two. Thanks,

the 473/475 has Airplay and iPad capability. If either of those are important to you go for the 473. If not, then I would go for the 373 for $190 or whatever its going for these days.
