Hi. I just order a sherbourn PT-7030. Yep even after reading all the quirks. But i felt the benefits out weighed the quirks. Been running my home theatre thru a HK avr 354 and i have never been happy with the sound. Listen to alot of music thru PS3 for SACD and use for Blu-ray Movies. Hopefully someday I'll move up to Oppo player.

To get to the point I'll be hooking up basically just cable tv, ps3 and the kids wii to the 7030. to avoid some of the 1 to 2 sec delays what is the best option on hooking these devices up? (might hook up my old Pioneer DV 656A to it)

Any suggestion aprreciated. Beside hook up any other suggestion on the use and hookup of the 7030 is greatly apprciated.

thanks.

There is a Sherbourn PT-7020c4 onEBAY currently. Looking at specs, it would do nicely if i can find one for a little less...maybe a PT-7020a as i do not need the control capability and searches have not show as much discussion of problem issues that i have read about the Emotiva UMC-1....

I'd go for it right now but as i'm on disability income, i have to wait for next months payment to have the funds..I could swing $375.00 at the most currently, but that still would stretching my income.....
