recently I've been upgrading my room for a (budget) Home Cinema 5.1 installation. Up until now I've used a cheap old receiver I got from ma father (Onkyo tx-ds575x), but its old age is taking its toll on the AVR. So i've decided to go look for a replacement (sub €350). The two receivers popping up most often are the Yamaha RX-v383 and RX-v483. These do seem very interesting, but one thing is unclear for me and i was wondering if one of you guys could help me out.
One website it's stated, and i quote:
"Does not have many built-in decoders. It does not support Dolby atmos, Dolby surround, etc. Again, you will have some troubles with it."
The fact that it does not support atmos is no problem for me, but the lack of Dolby Surround seems to be of importance since ill use it mainly for watching movies and music.
I do have to say that i'm pretty much a noob at these subjects so if Dolby True HD etc are enough, please indulge me with this good news!
Furthermore, the goal is to run a hdmi from my laptop to the receiver, and than towards my Optoma TX1080 Projector, Connected are a 5.1 tannoy sfx set with the original Subwoofer (not sure if necessary to know).
With kind regards,
