I must say at first listen I am surprised at how laid back and warm this receiver sounds with the SVS SBS-01 system. I love the sound... If it were not for the sound I firmly believe I would sell it because of all the other nick picky things I find bothersome.

What AVR were you using before you got the Yamaha Sonnie?

I was previously using the Maestro M2 with an Earthquake Cinenova Grande. The sound was more neutral with those in play with the SBS-01's. The JBL Northridge speakers started out fairly bright, but mellowed down somewhat after several hours of play.

I guess since I've read several places where Yamaha was on the brighter side that I was expecting a bright sound, but I have been pleasantly surprised. This unit actually reminds me of my old McIntosh gear.

I had a Yamaha DSP-A3090 before I got my Denon 3803, and the Yamaha definately had a brighter sound than the Denon. I have heard from a few different sources lately that the new Yamahas have a warm sound. I was thinking you had a Denon for some reason, I was interested in a comparison between the two.

Yeah, I've had the Denon 3805 and 3806... both sounded about the same to me and I would say they were rather neutral as well, but in both cases I used the Cinenova as the amp and each Denon as a pre-pro.

More YPAO memories means you can save and recall the auto settings from different seating positions. It also allows you to taylor the auto settings to different preferences, say for music listening versus movies.

The nonGUI is text based, while the GUI is more graphical.

Are you using the Cinenova with the Yamaha or the internal amps?
