I have been in the market this year researching $1,000 a/v receivers such as the Denon 3803 and Pioneer 45tx (both with great sound). I liked the 3803 with its video up conversion and the 45tx with its MCACC. If only there was a $1000 receiver out there that could combine these two features and have great sound to boot. Much to my happiness the Yamaha RX-V2400 has come along. I would welcome your thoughts and comments.
