Don't know if it's because I'm getting old but like the fact PL-200 have physical knobs vs RW-12d w/digital controls.
All depends on the era one grew up in. Loved the knobs and buttons on 70's era AVR's but today, it's a digital world we're all living in.
Warranty? That's a good call on your part. Pretty much, our stuff lasts forever. Rarely does something just evaporate but in this fast paced, technological age, a four or five year old television is doing one a favor by dying.
Our 46" television died the day before the 2012 Olympics began. Oh darn, looks like we're just going have to go out and buy a 60" TV to watch the Olympics on. And I used the death of our five year old television as an excuse to upgrade the AVR and Center Channel. Strike while the iron is hot.
My personal opinion, based on being a Klipsch fanboy and that the specs of the RW-12d and the PL-200 are so close, if one went with a pair of PL-200's, they'd be "VERY" happy campers.
My feeling, always go with what makes one feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Hope the above prattlings help.
