Really need some help here. It looks like at this moment you can get an Yamaha RX-V3000 and the new Yamaha RX-V2200 for the same price. After looking at the specs for both of them, and risking oversimplification, the major differences are the 3000 has the Burr-Brown DACs on the LCF channels and the 2200 has the Yamaha DAC's. However the 2200 is compatible with the newest formats, Neo6, DTS Discrete 6.1, Pro Logic II and I think the Discrete Dolby Digital 6.1, but I'm not sure, and the 3000 is not.


So what will it be? What might I have overlooked?


Thanks


Doug

You can find more information on the differences between the two Yammies from a technical perspective here.

Yeah, I think the extra decoding capability is nice, DPLII and DTS Discrete, but I'm guessing the 3000 probably sounds better in DTS and DD considering it has more power, and in general better specs.



I'd be interested in knowing people opinions of the RX-V1 vs RX-V3000.


From what I can tell from a techincal perspective, the main difference are in the number of dacs per channel, and some extra processing ability on the RX-V1. I'd just like to know which of the two, rx-v1/rx-v3000 people find to sound "better".

I would guess that the RX-V1 sounds better because of the burr-brown dacs on all channels as opposed to the 3000's burr-browns on the LFC only.


Is discrete 6.1, dolby or dts that much better that its worth giving up the good DAC's and the better overall specs of the 3000?
