I just replaced my older Arcam system with a BDP-105D and NAD T777, running a 5.1 Kef speaker system. My plasma is an older high-end Panasonic 720P that obviously doesn't have the detail of 1080P tv's, but has been professionally calibrated and just has amazing color balance.
My question concerns the best way to connect my inputs, which are an HD cable box, Apple TV, and of course the Oppo Blu-Ray. Right now I've got each input connected via HDMI into the NAD receiver, which does no video upconverting or processing.
The Oppo is supposed to have very good video conversion, so I was wondering if I would be better off running the HD cable box and Apple TV into the Oppo inputs, and then just using a single HDMI input to the NAD T777. With a 720P plasma will this yield any advantage? When I change to a new tv, likely a 4k model, will it?
