    I have about 250 to spend. Looked at the yamaha yht-199 from richer sounds but they don't deliver and i can't get to their store so now have to find an alternative. I really wanted one before Monday when my new carpet is put down. Doesn't look like that will be possible now though.

    You will not get better for the money. It is not going to be amasing but will be better than TV speakers or an all in one system but do not expect miracles since it is not a lot of money.

    Does the 398 come under a different name because I can't find any reviews of it? Amazon don't sell it. They have the 399 which I assume is the newer version.

    Found the name of the av receiver. Yamaha htr-3065. Since the whole system is 280. Is this system better than the yamaha 199?

    I believe it has slightly better speakers. Check to see if it has auto setup too.

    I've looked at the specs for the yamaha 3065 and the only auto setup could find is this.
    Auto microphone/room calibration, yes Yamaha YPAO auto speaker setup and optimisation system via microphone.

    That is what I meant. Do not think the 199 has it and it is probably worth the little bit of extra money.
