A little advice please...
For years, I've been hooking various Oppos up to my venerable Yamaha DSP-A1 amplifier, a beast of an amp...that has just given up the ghost. To quote Richard Anderson: 'Goodbye, old friend...'
So, onwards and upwards, I've replaced it with a Yamaha RX-V2067, for good or ill (I'll find out Monday when it arrives). However, it features stuff of which I know very little - previously, I hooked the BDP-80 up to my Samsung LE-52A656A1F via HDMI for picture, but connected the Oppo and the amp via analogues, to get the benefit of the HD codecs.
Should I eschew that and now connect via HDMI for vision and sound? Should I allow the Yamaha to perform any upscaling (and indeed, should I let the Yamaha take over upscaling duties for my Oppo 983H - which I still use; I am mindful not too...)
Any advice, on Oppo connections and setting, as I enter the great big wonderful world of 21st century amplification (!) would be appreciated.
