Yamaha DSP-AX863SE and DSP-AX763 Query

I became very interested in auditioning and buying one of the two Yamaha AV amps that won in your recent awards. But the two Yamaha models being sold here in the Philippines are tagged as RXV-863SE and RXV-663, same as those offered in the U.S.

I compared the European and US/Asian versions of the two models from Yamaha's website and both versions look almost exactly the same and have identical specifications. There are some minor differences in features, like the RXV is equipped with a receiver and has 19 preset templates compared to 17 of the DSP.

My question is, does the RXV version have the same sound and picture qualities of the DSP version?

It's been asked before, but I am afraid we really have no idea, since the RX version isn't sold in the UK and thus we haven't been able to test it.

I know the changes involve more than just tuner removal - there's some audio tuning in there, too - so I would suspect that the RX versions sound different.
