I ws comparing the RX-V675 to an Aventage RX-A730. They are both really close in price but the Adventage is only 50 bucks more,
$650.00 vs $700.00. By looking at the website they both seem to have identical features. Same power rating and the Inputs and Outputs all look the same too.
What would be the real advantage of one over the other? The Adventage RX-A730 is near the entry level of the line and the RX-V675 is near the top of the line in that series. But..... what is the real difference?

the differences are small...the avantage models have anti resonate wedge and have a nicer looking front panel. You dont get the real benifits of the avantage models unti the 10,20,30xx models. However I would go with a rxv775 or rxa830 for the pre amp outputs just in case you might want to add a external amp. Also I believe the 775 and 830 have a better version of ypao with 8point multi measure.

Thanks for your reply. This was starting out to be just a shelf stereo system but now it's escalating into something much more. I might just have to step it up to a 10 series.

The 1xxx is definitely where it steps up with regards to build quality. The 2xxx is where YPAO starts to EQ the sub.

Why only Yamaha? Sherbourn has the 8100 on sale which will EQ the sub. Denon also has great receivers in this price range.
