Here's what I'd like to do in my current setup.

What can I put in the middle that will not cost me $1,000?


I do not have external speakers yet, and my headphones are TurtleBeach X41

I'd like to have ability to chose the video output to go to either the TV or the projected, and the audio output to go to speakers or headphones

The Yamaha A1000 will do all that except 5.1 optical out and is on closeout sale right now. Due to copywrite protection almost all receivers only output 2 channel from analog sources thru digital out.

Does the Yamaha A1000 do simultaneous HDMI out? If you dont need simulataneous output I think the Yammy 867 can be had for much cheaper and also has dual HDMI outputs.


I don't think I've seen any receiver with dual optical outputs. and I doubt you get 5.1 coming from HDMI to optical.

The only reason I picked the a1000 over the 867 is the toslink out.

I don't understand the optical out to 5.1 in your diagram. If you get a receiver, it will power the speakers in a 5.1 set-up. No need for optical out to another box for that.


If you don't need to feed both displays simultaneously, then a single HDMI output and a switch should meet your needs.
