Can I ask some ?'s? Receiver newbie here who decided to get in and order the 605. I've read all the specs and I (for the most part) know exactly what's going on here, but I'm just looking for a little clarification.
Are you saying that this receiver, if I hook up something through composite/s-video, will upscale the resolution through the HDMI port? So if I'm playing my Dreamcast through S-Video, the resolution will be converted through the receiver? I mean that would be flippin' SWEET, but I also understand that it wouldn't be perfection or anything like that. I guess I'm just trying to get a grasp on that particular feature more.
And also, I see that the 605 comes with AM/FM antenna's. Seriously now, do these antennas work ok? I'd like for the radio to be another option for me through the receiver, but I just wonder if those antennas are good enough to get the job done. I know that can also depend on how I setup the antenna, but is it something that's going to work, or does it come packaged with the receiver for a reason.
And finally, the speaker system that I'm going to be using with this is the Polk RM6800's. I got them in the mail yesterday, and now they're just sitting there waiting for this baby to supply them power. Do you guys see these speakers and this receiver as a good match? From everything I've ready, I expect to be very very happy but I guess it's always good to get opinions from others. I have Blu-Ray and HD-DVD and I just absolutely cannot WAIT to get all of this stuff hooked up and running! So I guess all I have to hold me over until that happens, is conversation. Thanks to anyone who can add to it!
