Yamaha HTiB receiver


Standard Member
Anyone know if the receiver in the HTiB-45 (HTR-5540RDS) is actually the RX-V430RDS in disguise? The specs seem to be pretty much identical.

I'm considering the package as a cheap option. I could always upgrade the speakers later, but I'm sure someone will suggest a better alternative.

I've seen the HTiB-45 for £320 and the 430 for around £200, so that's about £120 for the Yamaha speakers and sub. I'd like something like the Mission FS1 or 2, but that's a couple of hundred more. Yes I have seen the FS1s at QED.

According to the Yamaha catalogue, they are one and the same, just different colours. Coudl cross reference teh Yamaha web site to double check.



Steve, yes the HTR-5540RDS is the Titanium version of the 430, I know because I received mine from SuperHiFi at the beginning of the week.
£216 inc. postage, great service and a gorgeous looking receiver ....

Well I've been and gone and ordered one now from Unbeatable (£321)

After that I saw this


They say the 5540 is the same apart from the colour, but it also has a different remote.

I'm looking forward to finally having a proper surround system. I've had Pro-Logic for a while, but I'm expecting a major improvement.

The issue now is which DVD to try first. The Phantom Menace pod race is a likely candidate. Fellowship of the Ring will get a spin as well.

I'll try and report back next week after I've had a play.
