I bought the RX-V2400 in July. After a 3 month burn-in. I am 70% satisfied with it. But b4 u consider the RX-V2500, it'll be worthwhile to listen to the Marantz SR8300
the 2500 has many additional features, such as GUI (graphic user interface), user adjustable parametric equliser. Video switching between formats, now available for record outs as well (except component, which is only available for monitor out). The YPAO autocalibration was improved and is now error free.
