I'm new to this home theater gig, but I have been reding up on the forum for a couple weeks now. I think I'm informed enough to begin my modest system build. I have narrowed my choices down to two and I need some friendly input to sway me one way or the other


I've narrowed my choices down and here they are:

Yamaha V661 New in the box

Yamaha V1600 Open box display model, no remote, no manual


All things considered, which would you pro audio folk prefer? They would roughly be the same price.


This will be the beginning of me piecing my system together, and I can't wait to get started so any input is appreciated.


BTW I will be using it for 5.1 surround (eventually) and music enjoyment in my small college apartment

So far I have an HP 42" Plasma and an XBOX

I thought we are not supposed to post prices? I'll just say either one is coming from an authorized dealer and will ring in at just under 400 OTD. The only prob I see with the 1600 is that it is the receiver only and I have no idea what kind of shelf life it had. I'm guessing they don't have the YPAO either. My total initial budget is 1,000 so I feel this gives me some room for some decent speakers and a DVD player
