Thanks JD- I thought there was a chance heights would work the same as rears in regards to single channel, but no big deal. l

Thinking of picking up a 591 for the garage. I currently have 6 speakers. If I use an external amp for ONE height, will it simply get the L and R Heights mono'd?

Yamaha already has a slash through the $2999.00 MSRP with a $2499.00 showing.

Looks like they want to get closer to the Denon/Marantz 7200/7702.

Man, I know it's not the end of the world, but I REALLY wish they'd drop that top third of the unit being plastic and encase the display-- really looks awfully cheap to me for a $3,000 processor.
