First off I have two NR818's already. They are working great but my bedroom AVR is going out to service. The 727 is $600 and the 818 is $649. I am leaning to the 818 because XT32 and more power. Any thoughts on the two choices? Thanks

As for Yamaha, unless you step up to the 2000 or 3000 series, you're limited to a single global crossover ...

If one has picked a balanced set of speakers, it will be fine to use one crossover frequency for all speakers. People who waste money on main channel speakers that can go lower than they need to go when one has a subwoofer may feel differently, but an ideal system will require only one crossover frequency for all speakers, because one will select identical speakers for all channels and consequently their bass response will be the same.
