Can someone help me understand the differences in the new Yamaha lineup of the RX-V663 and the HTR-6160? From Yamaha's web site they look to be the same, price/features most of the info looks like a cut and paste. On the HTR-6160 features page it's listed as 665W (95W x 7) but on the spec page it is listed as 735W (105W x 7). The RX-V is listed the same 665W (95W x 7) on both pages. Not that 10W makes much of a difference, but if the 105W is correct, they are both the same size (dimension and weight) I would think they somehow tweaked that output out of the same amp for a marketing ploy.
1.Would anyone know what the correct claimed output is on the HTR?
2.If through biasing a componet differently or tapping the xformer differently , however they are doing it, to reach a higher output. What drawbacks would there be to this?
These look like something I may want to keep an eye on, maybe pick one up to use later as a pre-pro after some of the new EMO products have been in peoples hands for a while.
