I missed out on the previous discounted price from NewEgg (they were out of stock by the time I found out from my price alert) but I was able to pull the trigger today!

Do you think this will be an audio quality upgrade over my Yamaha RX-V1800? Specifically, I mean audio quality for 2 channel music as well as Blu-ray movies.
It does not seem to have that much separation of channels, and the center channel in particular seems weak and lacks dialog clarity, no matter how high I set the level.
Also, the best way I can describe the sound quality of the Yamaha is "analytical" or "sterile".
My speakers are Front: Legacy Signature II towers, Center: Paradigm cc570v3, Surrounds: PSB Image T4, Sub: Outlaw.
Any input much appreciated!
1. Same here except I did not email them.
2. I know they would not send me a refurb because they would get it right back or have to knock a bunch of money off of it.
3. I choose to think the R is for retail. Here is to hoping Onkyo sorted out the issues with the other models or I will be living the nightmare too instead of the dream.
