Yamaha RX-V2400 Introduction

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. The ever growing technological marketplace and continually increasing consumer expectations places more and more demands on manufacturers to push the envelope in development, performance, and value; at least as far as midfi goes. The high end audio industry is sometimes another story however, which we shall not expand upon in this review.
