I am just looking for advice from anyone who has the new Audyssey Features (Dynamic EQ, Dynamic Volume) ... I am looking at getting a new receiver there seems to be great deals out there on the Denon 1609/1709 models (sub $200 prices) which come with the new Audyssey features, and i am wondering if the new audyssey features mixed in with the great price are a better value than spending more for HDMI (lossless) audio. I have not yet heard the difference between lossless audio through HDMI versus optical audio so if anyone could offer their thoughts i would be very appreciative.
I do understand that the Denon 1609/1709 models do not do audio over HDMI, i am just curious as to the actual listening difference, and the value of the new Audyssey features. Any input is appreciated, thanks!
