I just kicked you.
The 2000 and 3000 are using the latest offering by HQV. Onkyo's 3008 and 5008 are using the HQV Reon. Denon's models 3310 and up are using ABT and some of Pioneer's AVRs are using Marvel by QDEO. Under most circumstances these video chips will out perform most
displays and the only way to improve on this would be to purchase a separate video processor.
