I have now had the T775 for a bit over 1½ a year, and are quite satisfied. I updated pretty much everything - except my subwoofer as I can't decide what to get - as part of the change to the T775 and this newfangled "Digital Age" (God I feel old now). I have been very satisfied with the sound that comes out of this thing, and has actually begun using it a lot more than my old system.
About 5 months ago, I got a BluRay player, and then began experiencing the pops. I sent the receiver to the store to get fixed, and got it back with 1.16 firmware, and a lot less pops, so now i'm not that worried about destroying my speakers...
This leaves me with the problem of listening to CD. It seems I can only listen to CD via analogue input, as all my players seems to start a new stream every time a new track begins. It takes a small amount of time for the receiver to get out of mute between each track, which means that the first bit of each number is cut. I have a nice track with Scatman John called "Time", which starts immediately with the word "Time". This track is cut to start with "ime", with maybe a hint of the "T" at the beginning.
Is there a fix for this issue, or do i need to go back to analogue again?
I have tried the following digital transports (cut beginning):
NAD C545BEE (coax, optical)
Oppo 983 (hdmi)
Panasonic BD55 (hdmi)
Sony RDR-HX820 (hdmi)
Sony CDP-970 (optical)
I have tried the following analogue transports (no problem):
