    Found this on the net

    What is the difference between Yamaha RXV and HTR receivers with nearly identical specifications and parts. This seems to be a common question about Yamaha products.

    The RXV's meets a much stricter standard for amplifers than the HTR line. Yamaha says: "The RXV line has the power amplifiers rated from 20-20000 Hz. The HTR line has the power amplifiers rated at 1000 Hz."

    The point is: because HTR power is only given for one frequency and not the entire range, the HTR spec probably means there is a significant power drop off at the frequency extremes when all channels are in use.

    In other words, Yamaha tests the parts and assemblies and those that meet the much stricter specifications become RXV receivers, the rest become HTRs. Just because two systems have the same parts doesn't mean that some parts don't perform better. For example even if Yamaha specifies it wants resistors to be within accurate within 5%, some of them will be within 1% and could be useful in meeting stricter standards.

    This is the same thing Intel does with processors, all the CPUs come from the same process but some become p4 3.6 ghz and others only 2.8 ghz (which they sell for a lower price). It doesn't mean that some 2.8's can't meet the stricter standard, it just means the 3.6's definitely will.

    The bottom line is when looking at power ratings, try to get a rating that covers the full audio spectrum, not just one frequency where other frequencies may lag in at high power.

    Essentially you are paying for the stricter standards; whether you can hear the difference is another question (probably most couldn't). But, presumably the standard was created to ensure high quality.
