"Better" in what sense? Obviously on the surface the numbers are "better," but is it audibly better? And how/why is it "not as good" as BluRay?



You sure that's the reason? Might want to...

Yes, they test for much more than frequency response. And they find measurable differences. But are they audible differences? Usually not.

What exactly do you mean by "video delay issues?" Do you mean lipsync issues where the audio is ahead of the video?

What CDs were recorded in the 70s?

And it's "loudness wars," not "sound wars."

And 16 bits is nearly always sufficient to be audibly transparent to the source. If, and that's a big IF, a...

There are lots of variables in play here that could explain what you heard.

IMO, it doesn't make sense to buy a $5000 Krell amp, period. $4000 for the name, $500 for the parts inside, and $500 more for the fact they're paying premiums on parts and manufacturing costs due to...

True. But you are neglecting the benefits of volume-pricing. AVRs outsell two-channel stereos by orders of magnitude these days, and their prices reflect that. If a manufacturer makes 50k AVRs in...

Yes. I have a Denon AVR in my audio/video setup. I also have an audio-only setup with an integrated amp. The AVR sounds just as good to me and has more features, all at a lower price.
