O lordy. I took the jump and ordered the 671 from EE with the coupon code [gulp]. It's been almost 24hrs and I'm nervous about the whole deal...that I'm waiting for the magic email stating that they'll have to ship me a 673....I used the coupon from the earlier thread. As an aside I saw the 673 at SLC, UT Best Buy for $599 (eeek!), and an open box for $499 (less eeek, same bad taste). I hope my 389 gamble pays off.
What sold me on this receiver, 7.x (don't have that), 4K upconvert, the ipad app (seriously, or my wife will NEVER use the thing and thus declare the whole cinema room a failrue
-not acceptable!), ethernet port (no way I'm streaming stuff anyway over wifi, run a damn cable people!) and sound custimization thingy, all solid Yamaha products in my mind.
Anyway, I guess I'll just sit n stare at the wall hoping, praying i get the dealio email/phone call to upgrade the 671 to the 673. I really don't want the 671. really.
