Unfortunately,B&K products generally don't have A/V sync delay controls. I ended up moving from a B&K AVR202 to separates due to the lip sync introduced by my video processor. It was driving me crazy.
If you search under lip sync you will find some work arounds that were just to impracticle for 5.1 channel sources. Vigatec is supposed to have a box to handle this but rumored pricing made a better pre-pro a better option. I believe that the Proceed DVD player has an lip sync adjustment and Immersive has an SDI card for the Proceed PMDT unit. Even with a used Proceed,it is a costly option.
Interesting post.I can't say that i have noticed this lip sync problem with my Rock Plus since changing to a new Technics DVD-A10 DVD player.I definately had the lip sync problems with my older DVD player.I will take a closer look tonight though.Have Leeza owners also noticed this problem ? I know this can also happen with scalers but the main culpret at least in my case was not the scaler but the DVD player.
It isn't very noticeable, but I have employed the use of center channel delay with every video processor I have ever used (DVDO iScan, Crystal Image, Rock+). The DVDO I had to use the most ever 5ms, and the Crystal Image and Rock+ both came in at 2ms.
Most don't even notice the lip-sync not syncing perfectly...this is for the anal retentive videophile folks (myself included)
Hi Darren,I'm watching a movie right now trying to detect a delay and it is quite difficult to do so.Maybe 1 to 2 ms at the most in my case.Oddly enough it seems the digital output seems very close to right on w/maybe 1ms delay the optical output seems like just a bit more at maybe 1.5ms.This is going to require further testing it seems.The closer to the screen and center channel the less of a delay.
I have a Leeza and a B & K Ref 20. I really dont notice any delay and to be honest, I dont look for one. I sometimes see some really weird delays when watching directv (sat receiver audio goes through the B&K) especially when watching the network channels, though usually when watching the East Coast feeds (I live in LA). ABC seems to be the worst. In anycase, it really annoys me so if I do have any delay with the Leeza, either its really small or I ignore it
As mentioned before, the b & k Center does have a delay, but i think it maxes out at
20ms, which from what I read on this forum, is not a lot
