The lower bass is so much stronger and so much more detail as well, they just feel alive. I've been listening to music without a sub for the last two weeks and honestly I don't feel like it's needed(movies excluded). .
The Yamaha by itself could play to insanely loud levels without breaking a sweat, but now I can listen at 75-80db and the speakers sing with enough bass to make my hardwood floors vibrate. Before I had to play at much higher db level for the same "sound".

I beleive the newer receivers like the 3808 will prove better than my 5 year old Yamaha though, and the difference between it and a separate amp might be negligable. I have not heard the newer ones though.

That was how I felt with the M80s and the A1400. My Denon 3808, much like your Yamaha, can hit very loud +100db levels but the A1400 just worked soooo much better even at the same low db levels, so no, older/newer receivers are not in the same league as seperate amps, IMO.

M60's are awesome

I want you guys to stop talking about amps now, though.

In all the work we're planning on having done, I'm going to have my HT system put on it's own 20amp circuit just in case Outlaw has a "can't resist" sale someday....

I keep putting the A1400-2 in my shopping cart and then clearing it before I hit enter. My wife has given me the go ahead to buy the A1400-8 as soon as I have saved up for it \:\) Anyone need some work done on their cars, it will only cost you $4500 cdn ;\)
