  1. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    I have been happy with the A800, I upgraded to a stand alone amp last year, so I thought of looking at a separate processor as I am no longer using the amp in my receiver. Lots of good reviews on the UMC-200, any thoughts on the pro/con of doing this, or any other suggestions. Thanks!

     I am looking to upgrade my stereo system that I use for both my record player and to watch movies. I'm not looking to, nor can I afford to spend thousands of dollars. If any experts could give a little input I would appreciate it. I currently have: Yamaha HTR-6130 receiver...

    Has anyone owned or compared this receiver to receivers today? I could get one for free. But do not want it if it is not worth having. If I didn't get this I would get a cheap Denon 1612. Thanks

    Guys, I ordered the 2112 over this past weekend for my main theater. I need another receiver for my main living room to drive just 5.1 in ceiling speakers (might go with Monoprice) + Klipsch RW12-D sub.

    Does anyone know if the YAMAHA RX-A800 will work as an HDMI splitter? It has two HDMI outputs, but on the back next to the outputs it says "selectable ARC". But I don't know what that means. I want to be able to output the input source to both HDMI outputs simultaneously. If not that...

    This has probably been asked before but any help would be appreciated. The a800 plays audio fine when using it as a preamp but my HDMI 2 runs straight to my Viewsonic 3752 tv (which accepts both video and audio via HDMI) so i get a picture fine but no sound. I cannot resolve the issue, it is...
