Hey everyone, I'm not as tech savvy as most here, so let me ask what I'm sure is, to most of you, a basic question:
Will the XA5400-ES deliver its reportedly fabulous multi-channel audio quality via HDMI with my Onkyo TX SR-606 receiver (which has 4 HDMI inputs)? I'm asking because I thought I read somewhere that the 5400 has to compromise signal quality if it's not plugged into a receiver with a specific kind of HDMI capability.
Separately, what's the consensus regarding the 5400 vs. the Oppo BDP-83 SE for 2-channel playback - using Oppo's analog 2-channel option? All other components being equal, which unit offers better AQ?
