    Sorry for the idiot question but can anyone tell me the main difference between these 2 models (besides that the v1400 is 7.1) and almost £200

    I am interested in the above models due to the upconversion capabilities as I plan to connect a Component DVD and S-Video Sky and S-Video VCR to the receiver.

    thanks

    The big one is that the 1400/2400 have THX Select certification and processing and a bit more grunt. Might be a phono stage as well.

    The differences are as follows:

    - 1400 is a receiver, not just an amplifier;
    - 1400 has THX select certification;
    - 1400 is not just higher power (110w DIN per channel), but also have a MUCH more powerful power supply. The 1400 will therefore be able to drive more channels at a higher volume for longer periods and will not be as "throttled" by an inadequate power supply as would the 750.

    I don't know whether your funds allow, but I found the Yamaha 2400 RDS on the web today at an amazing £650, thats 350 snots off the original price! It also won the a test in What Hifi against the new Denon powerhouse, and the Arcam AVR300! I have the DSP-AX640SE which is fine, but I know I could drastically improve my system with a 2400. Unfortunately i'm skint!

    The 750 has a phono stage too. And does 7.1. The 1400 and the 2400 can do 7.1 and drive the two front presence speakers, too, if I'm not mistaken. The 750 can do 5.1 plus the front two, or 7.1 minus the extra fronts.

    MS-YAM,

    I may be able to stretch to £650 at a push. Can you PM me and let me know where you saw the 2400 at?

    Just realised when I got home that my VCR does not have S-Video (only a SCART socket) but I presume I can get a scart to composite cable that I can connect into any of the Yam receivers?

    cheers

    Hi,

    I'm not too sure about the composite connections, but if you look at www.superfi.co.uk, on their home page you will find the Yam at £650. When you click on the link, it will bring up a good description of the amp, with all connections, spec etc you need to know.

    Sorry, one other thing..

    Assuming you are using it with good components, if you can stretch to this amp, my advice is go for it! I got myself a DSP-AX640SE, which dont get me wrong, is superb for the money. But if I had the extra, I know in my own mind the step up would be a hell of an improvement. I used to have a Mordaunt-Short Premiere satellite system, which it was perfectly matched to. I have now upgraded to a full size Mordaunt-Short Avant set up i.e. MS906 fronts, MS905 centre etc, and I feel that the 2400 would be a hell of a match. What other equpiment are you using??

    Can anyone with the 2400 tell me if it has audio delay assignable to inputs. eg could I have 60ms for VCR, and 100ms for DVD?

    The 750 doesn't do this, and a look at the 1400 manual doesn't give me any clues, either.

    Why bother at all. Just run the vcr to the tv with a scart and the audio to the amp if it has audio out on it.

    Another difference between the 750 and the 1400/2400 is the YPAO. The YPAO on all 3 check the wiring, distance, phase, size and set the level, but the YPAO on 1400/2400 can also equalize each of the speakers across 7 frequency bands.
