The 635 (and 435) can post-process

But the 635 didn't have..a.
DTS Master Audio decodingc.
Dolby Digital + decodingd.
Dolby True Audio decodinge.
Upscaling to 36 Bit Deep Color @1080pg.
Alpha Blend GUIi.
Sirius Satellite Radio Interfacej.
Discrete IR Commands for Zone 1 & 2
But then again the 635 is 4 years old..
Just my $0.015...
I didn't think I needed to state the obvious!
And I do consider those units to be a step down, as far as how L7 can be used. And as far as HDMI, I couldn't care less, at this point in time. As the newer audio can be had using 7.1 analogue inputs.
Yes, all those newer units do all the newest audio, but if one is watching a movie via cable, sat, ota, dvd, its all DD5.1, except for dts dvds. So if you're using one of those newer AVRs you're stuck with DD5.1.
With the older AVRs, like the 635, you can watch all those sources with L7~7.
