Hello,

I'm looking to upgrade my receiver and came across a new in box Yamaha RX-V375 on Craigslist for sale that I could possibly get for $150. Would this receiver be an upgrade from HK AVR 254? I currently have 3.1 setup and am getting new Cambridge S30 front speakers and BIC PL-200 subwoofers (center channel will be upgraded soon - probably with a Cambridge S30).

Can someone advise if my current receiver HK AVR 254 would work well with my new speakers and subwoofer? Will I benefit from getting the new Yamana RX-V375? By the way, I would probably use the current 3.1 setup for a while but my use 5.1 or 7.1 setup later.

Any suggestions will be welcome!

It's not really an upgrade unless you see some specific feature on the 375 that you want. The 375 is the base model. It doesn't have significantly (if any) more power than your HK; it doesn't have HDMI standby passthrough; it doesn't have networking. If you have a 3D TV, you might want to upgrade so that you get the 375's full 3D pass-through. Other than that, save your money for a bigger upgrade down the road.
