It wasn't too long ago that I got my start in home theater with a Yamaha mid line receiver known as the RXV-992. Compared to the new RX-V2400, the RXV-992 offered less power, only five channels of amplification, no DTS, no PLII, no component video switching, and no room correction or auto set-up features, yet both carried the same retail price of $999. At the time, the RXV-992 receiver was an excellent value as few, if any, in its price class packed all of its features and performance. That was then and this is now.
