weird, because only info that comes up when you Google HT-RC470 are from these 2 stores in Canada. All I could find is that it's 165Watts / Ch.

Its the RC version of the NR616, kinda like the RC360 was the RC version of the NR609

the article even mentions the NR616 in it.

As soon as I saw that it only had Audyssey 2EQ and a single component video input I knew it couldnt be any higher than a NR616 receiver.

With a total of eight HDMI® ports for Dolby® TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio™, 3D video, an Audio Return Channel, and an overlaid on-screen display, experiencing high-resolution sound and vision has never been easier. Despite its entry-level price, the HT-RC470 is a cut above when it comes to surround sound quality and ease of use.

A discrete WRAT amplifier, separate output-stage components, and top-quality 192 kHz/24-bit DACs on all channels deliver exceptionally pure sound through your 5.1 speaker system. For music lovers, a frontside USB provides a direct digital connection for your iPod® or iPhone®. You can also play a wide variety of audio formats off a USB memory device and select tracks using the system remote.

A built-in Advanced Music Optimizer with volume equalization enhances the quality of your digital music, while gamers can select from four different DSP modes for even greater realism. Your new home theater receiver is very easy to set up and adjust, even during a program, with helpful menus never further than a button press away. If it’s high value and high performance you’re after, then the HT-RC470 is worthy of serious consideration.

Connecting to your home network wirelessly via a UWF-1 Wireless LAN Adapter (sold separately), or using a LAN cable, the TX-NR616 makes streaming audio and internet radio easy. You can also play MP3, WMA, WMA Lossless, FLAC, WAV, Ogg Vorbis, AAC, and LPCM audio files stored on your PC through your Onkyo home cinema system with stunning power and fidelity. The receiver offers easy access to internet radio channels from Last.fm and vTuner, plus cloud-based music streaming

Thanks. So is it safe to say the 165W / Ch is a misprint? That's the one thing that drew me to this model.

No misprint, rather it's the 6-ohm @ 1CH driven rating which is what mfr's like to do to show a higher power rating. It's got the same 100W into 8-ohm @ 2CH driven rating as does the 616.

Looks like the 818 wins out.
Last year's 370 model was actually pretty decent, at least it was comparable to the 709 and 809 in some aspects.

I know this an old thread but I just purchased the HT-RC470 and can verify that it is virtually identical to the 616. It would seem that the only difference is that the 616 supports RDS (Radio Data System) in Europe. The only other difference I could find was the manuals call the "Music Optimizer" button the "Pure Audio" button on European and Asian models. My impression is that the 616 is a "world" model and the 470 is a North American model even though they sell the 616 here too. The manual for the 616 includes regulatory information for Europe and Asian countries, where the 470 manual does not. As far as specs and Inputs & Outputs they are identical.
