Tell us what you think about it. It's got a real clean look on its face.

I have only played with it for a few hours but when I get some more time in with it, I will post my ramblings. One thing I must say is that this thing has the best menu system of any receiver that I have had the chance to play with.

GO HOME RIGHT NOW!!!!! PLAY!!!!

Then let me know Asap. Being a t773 owner, I'm really interested in seeing if you like this.

Let me know what speakers you got it on too and how it handles the power

As you know I also have the NAD T-773 so I will be doing a true side by side comparison just for giggles.

As for what speakers the Yamaha will be running, here you go:

Onix Rockets RS 550's MKII's (6 ohms)
Onix Rocket RSC200 Center Channel (4 ohm)
Onix Rockets RS 150's (6 ohms)

So given that, the Yamaha will be driving a relatively hard load. It should be a good test.

that is what I meant, you have a 773, as do I.

So out of anyone on the net right now, your opinion will matter the most until I get one myself.

I'm curious how hard it's going to be to adjust the sub/center/surround levels with thing. The nad is on the fly via remote. Is the yammie going to have to go through a menu onscreen to do it?

In reply to:

Yes but you can assign different settings to each input via a memory bank. I don't like going through the menu either but I don't mind it on the 4600 as the menu is very good and easy to understand.

nice to know. I would imagine the gui is a little more sophisticated then the 773's plain black/white one eh ...

lol

I can't wait for mine to get here, but I got at least another week. I can't believe how long it is taking.

My initial thoughts are that you will take the 4600 over the 773. There are some extensive eq options in the 4600 that are right up your alley.

Without going into great detail the Yamaha has far more power then I would have thought. For once I agree with a Audioholics review.........but, dam does this thing get hot! I went home at lunch and cued up a bunch of music through my computer and came back to work for a few hours. Snuck home later on and it was still pumping out the tunes through all channels but like I said, it is hot. I left it going and will see how it is when I get home tonight.
