I had a Yamaha RX-V465, and now have bought Yamaha RX-V471. I've managed to confuse the two cables, the cable is to connect and set the sound YPAO ... What I wonder is whether this cable is exactly identical on both models, so it does not matter which I use of them new RX-V471 to set the sound? They look almost identical, except that one is a little bit wider "opening" on the widget a set where one should sit ... hope someone can answer this?

According to this page the same part number was supplied for both your units. I disagree with the previous commenter, and not every model has its own unique mic, although there are a few different models out there of the mic. Don't know why yours would be slightly different other than changes in manufacturing process.
Now that's settled, wanna sell me one of your cheap?

Where do you see RX-V471 on this list you linked to?

Does anyone have this wn649600 mic, and can tell me how many mm is the mic in the middle? This is the one for rx-v465? I have to know exactly mm, so I can tell it apart from the one I have for RX-V471. Can anyone confirm the ypao mic used for RX-V471 is exactly the same as the one for RX-V465? I can not find info about it anywhere...to me one of the ypao mics looks a little bit bigger than the other...
ousooner2, did you ever get your hands on that YPAO mic? I am in the same boat with my. Yamaha RX-V471 receiver.I bought a used 663 and I'm now in need of the YPAO mic. I've got everything calibrated distance/frequency and all that other stuff but I figure running the YPAO setup will probably yield better results. ??? Maybe? Anyways, I haven't been able to find one for under $50 which seems a little steep for something that tiny and that i'll only use once or twice. Basically what I'm trying to ask is, does it really help to use the YPAO setup and then adjust what may be off? Does it give a better sound quality than just playing it by ear and adjusting the normal settings in the AVR?
I think I might just go to BB and buy a Yammy AVR and use the mic and then take the thing back.
