Receiver under $700 with 3D and 4ohm speaker support

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am currently using a Denon AVR-1910 and I absolutely love it, however my dilemma is I have a brand new 3D TV connected to it.

My set up is as follows
Direct TV hr24-500
PS3 fat
AVR 1910
Panasonic 65VT50

My 3D sources will be the PS3 and Direct TV. I can split the connection from the direct tv and ps3 such that optical audio is sent to the receiver and hdmi video is sent to the TV but then I will lose some audio fidelity when watching blurays through the PS3. This is assuming that the PS3 and direct TV box support this type of set up.

Any suggestions?

There's no audio fidelity loss with optical from the DTV box and you would be hard pressed to discern any difference using optical from the PS3 when passing the lossy DD/DTS audio on BDs as compared to the HD audio tracks over HDMI. If that is your only reason to change, I'd stick with the 1910. smile.gif

That makes sense, but I am a audiophile more than a videophile smile.gif although, I suppose, I could live with it for a year and upgrade to a "better" receiver in a year

If you want increased audio fidelity, then you might want to take a look at the new 1713 as it not only bumps up to the higher version of Audyssey MultEQ XT but also offers networking and Airplay. Then again, a new HDMI spec is due to be released before the year's end which will likely be incorporated in next year's models.

yea, I think it will be smarter to wait. Does the 1713 handle 4 ohm speakers well?

Denon AVRs in general (16XX and higher) can handle 4-ohm speakers at moderate levels, just as the 1910 can do. However, as you get closer to reference level (0db) the AVR is more likely to shut down in protection mode. The only current model that is designed to work with 4-ohm speakers to reference levels is the 4311CI.

Yea. I have been pushing -10 during movies with no issues. My M&Ks sound great and impress me every time.

Thanks for the info
