Looking for AV Receiver with #1 priority being Audio Quality playing back both 2 channel and SACD/DVD-A multichannel tracks.


With that said I also dont want to limit myself on any of the video capabilities an AV Receiver can offer. My question is what can one receiver do better than my Oppo BLu-Ray in the video dept anyway? Dont you use the chip in the Oppo for video playback anyway? What am i missing? Can some of these receivers upconvert cable signals on regular TV for instance?

Yes, you can still use the Oppo to upscale DVDs. TVs already scale everything to their native resolution so a 1080P TV will already scale cable to 1080P. Some receivers will do a better job than the TV and some won’t. Now if you have a projector I would put more emphasis on getting a receiver with good upscaling. For me, its not as big a deal on a TV.

When it comes to stereo playback how the bias current is set determines how smooth, clean the HF is or how precise and detailed the stereo imagining is. Its a matter of the manufacturer getting it set to the optimal balance of both. Some amps do a better job at one or the other. A few manage to get both right. It would be a matter of listening to all three, to tell which one is doing it best. Preferred listening though whatever speaker system you have.
