Of course they will. The V1800 is still a better receiver than the V663. It has a better and more powerful amplifier. It has DSP surround modes that the V663 does not.
The V1800 will continue until October, when the V1900 will replace it.
Plus, the V1800 is a MUCH MUCH better, cleaner looking AVR with the drop down door, that people will pay a premium for.
