Wow, what are the chances, I have the same issue. My HT has been in storage since moving 2 years ago and im starting to get into setting it up. I have a marantz av550, 5 marantz ma500 monoblocks, velodyne sub. I want to update my preamp to something that will switch HDMI for my HDtv and/or front projector. I dont mind something a year or so old off ebay(since having kids the HT budget took a hit). so..any other decent preamps with hdmi?
checked out the Emotiva, that may work.
