Sorry for the dramma as a headline but i hope you can take a minute to share your knowledge. I spent $3,000+ on a decent home theater speakers, sub, etc. I really like my sound, but..... Everyone tells me that my receiver (yamaha rxv465) is a joke. Not a problem. I can afford a new receiver, however ..... As i read this forum it sounds as if the only receiver to buy is a $1500+ with audyssey multeq xt32 and everything else is just not worthy. Hype??? I then go to site like blu-ray.com community and look at hundreds of serious home theaters people share info about and most of them use receivers like.... Pioneer elite, denon 3312, onkyos with just audyssey multeq ... No 32 points technology and they all seem happy. My question ....... If i don't want to spend $1500 on a receiver, but i do want to change a joke of a receiver (yamaha rxv465).... Can't i just get a 2-3 year old receiver under $800 that was awesome when it came out? Is that audyssey 32 so much better than whatever software Pioneer Elite had 3 years ago? Any info will be greatly appreciated. P.S. sound i get from regular cable tv watching i love. Sound from Movies ..... needs improvement.
