Do Yamaha receivers mute the first second or two of the incoming digital audio signal until they can lock onto the signal properly? For example, when you listen to CDs over HDMI or coaxial digital input, are tracks played in their entirety or do you get the first second or two chopped off? Another scenario would be a media streamer like Squeezebox connected over coaxial or optical digital input. Do you get the first second of every track chopped off?
Many thanks for your feedback. I have found that far too many brands have this problem (Harman Kardon, NuForce, Anthem, Sherbourn, Cambridge Audio), and it's too much of a distraction once you realize that you can never hear the songs in their entirety. Surprisingly, low cost mainstream models (e.g., Denon, Panasonic) are immune to this problem. How about Yamaha?
I am particularly interested in RX-A830 to use as a pre-pro; however, there is no thread dedicated to this model. I am hoping an owner of 1030, 2030, or 3030 would be able to chime in.
