    As a HTiB solution, the Yamaha YHT-494 has a lot going for it. The slim LCR front speaker and cubed back speakers look to be easy to place. While most manufacturers would be trying to entice consumers with promises of "wireless" rear speakers and wall mounting, Yamaha seems to know that most people will be placing their speakers on a surface and running wires. The small size of the speakers and the LCR placement in front of the display is sure to hook some buyers. With the HTR-3063, you've got a receiver you can grow with rather than a box with proprietary hookups that will force you to toss it away when you decide to upgrade.

    I guess thats a fair price for what you get. I'm glad they stayed clear of these stupid proprietary connections
