I reckon I opened myself to all this..... Abuse!!!
I’d love to have Rotel, or NAD even, but unfortunately they do not have any HDMI audio processing. I’m really irritated with NAD in that regards too… They delayed release of their latest and greatest processors to incorporate HDMI 1.3 verses 1.1, to only enable Multi Channel PCM processing. They have no plans to decode the bitstream formats from BR or HD. And Rotel is one step further back than NAD. They just switch HDMI….. No, the only three choices I have are Denon, Onkyo/Integra and Yamaha (and I ain’t even considering another stinking Marantz, so that’s not an option).
The S/N 972 continues to get pushed back. Now their talking second quarter of 08 and they can’t even make up their mind what VP to use….
And for the record Rick / Ken….. I didn’t blow any up. We just have had, er…. Uh… disagreements. I think they should work as advertised, and they don’t. So you two just join Tom in ‘time out’. No dinner for any of you smartasses.
