It has been years since I last upgraded and looked for a high quality processor - and much to my surprise, when I search for a 7.1 processor with all the appropiate audio schemes as well as HDMI audio input needed for bandwidth, it seems that the high end doesn't exist any longer
Krell and Theta have some older designs that don't seem to play all that well with what is needed for state of the art. Clearly without hdmi audio, they do not have the bandwidth to pass what is available from all codecs these days.
When people start talking about Yamaha, Denon, Integra, Pioneer, Sony and Onkyo Receivers, I have to wonder what has happened to the High End?
Is there a good list of high end processors out there that at least pass everything one needs today, that one could use as a good starting point to start researching?
Just what are the top of the line Home Theaters using these days?
