Thanks for the explanation on discrete. I was reading some Sony threads on avsforum and a lot of people had the same problem I had and they all contributed it to heat and dry solder connections. In fact many of them tried re-soldering and fixed their machines, at least for a while.

I checked the website of the other local appliance store, 35 miles away and it only sells Sony. I suspect the one 8 miles away will be similar. I have NO intention of getting another Sony (I've had other badly performing Sony products) or an off-brand, don't worry. Right now it's just a battle of wills between me and DH. I think I'll be able to get him to understand the discrete amp just fine (he is an EE after all). It's all the other stuff and "why isn't the 373 just good enough, don't let those guys on the Fool sway you", I probably shouldn't mention to him the older version, the v371 which just dropped to $189 on Amazon.

I also agree with you on the binding posts vs the clips.

The major difference between the RX V373 and the RX V473 is the former doesn’t have component jacks.

I'm looking at both the Yamaha site and the photo on Amazon and both show the V373 having 2 component in (AV1 and AV2) and one component out.

I’d chose it if you can get a good price but would prefer the RX V473 becaus
