Talked to "Taylor" this evening (Ext:4083). . . He said no B.S. He can and will ship to you as fast as you want them.
For me! . . . I'm too Chicken S**t just yet
, but maybe with/after a few more posts, I will probably not be able to resist.
I have owned several Yamaha Music Products (including, currently, a $35,000 Yamaha Grand piano, a Yamaha RX-Z9 dedicated to my Home Theater System (the RX-Z9continues to blow me away (Audio wise)).
For the past several years I have been running a Yamaha 9.2 system (and I do have all those speakers (Def-Tech) and want to add 2 more (Rear Prescence to make 11.2)). . . . and they answered my request with: RX-A3000.
Let me tell you why...
If You have a Front Projector Setup and are projecting onto a large Screen (mine is 120").
I am advising you try the Dialog Lift with the Front Prescence Speakers.
I am telling you! Your center channel speaker will now sound like it is projecting from any vertical point on the screen.
Anyway . . . I can go on and on . . . Yes! Yamaha has always delivered the goods in A/V Recievers for me!
Hope this helps!
