Summary: Replacement in the sense that we had hurricane style rains for weeks straight and my roof leaked directly above my home theater equipment - of course! I digress, this was offered as a replacement by the insurance company from another Yamaha receiver from at least 7 years ago.
Summary: I bought the RX-V3800 to take advantage of the new HD lossless audio formats, particularly Dolby True HD. The RX-V3800 has truly superior audio processing and, when watching HD-DVD on my Toshiba A35, the results are impressive. Of course, that's like saying my Ford Edsel handles like a dream.
GREAT Multi-Purpose Receiver for HDMI, Internet and LAN

Summary: I confess, I am a electronic consumer nut. After "getting by" on SVHS and component hookups for my electronic equipment, I bit the bullet and started looking for a receiver that had enough HDMI inputs, enough SVHS inputs, an input for my iPod and RCA-phono/USB-phono, LAN and computer.
Summary: This is a super receiver. I have owned two SONY receivers prior to this and have never been quite as pleased. This baby is very heavy so please make sure that what ever you put it on can manage the weight for a long time.
Excerpt: Deze versterker heb ik gekocht ter vervanging van me oude marantz sr-7400 welke kuren begon te vertonen. Daardoor is deze review beetje een vergelijking met een oudere eveneens erg goede versterker.
Summary: Seit einigen Tagen bin auch ich stolzer Besitzer des Yamaha RX-V 3800. Da die beiden ersten Rezensionen schon sehr ausführliche und zutreffende Fakten lieferten, möchte ich nur noch ein paar Kleinigkeiten hinzufügen.
