It is now AV receiver season and we are seeing all sorts of upgrades on all lines of AV receivers. The Yamaha AV receivers have received an update and you should keep an eye out for the Yamaha RX-V375 and Yamaha RX-V475.
For a really affordable $300, the Yamaha RX-V375 is a 100-watt driven receiver that boasts discrete amplification and high quality 192 kHz/24-bit Burr Brown DACs. There are two sets of 5-way binding posts for the main speakers and includes four HDMI inputs and one output, two component video inputs and one output, and three composite video inputs and one output.
The Yamaha RX-475, on the other hand, supports Deep Color (30/36 bit), x.v.Color, 24 Hz refresh rate and auto lip-sync compensation. It also includes HDMI Standby Through which allows you to pass the audio and video from your sources to your display when the receiver is powered off.
