Any options out there under $600 or so?
You mentioned HDMI issues and 10db bass loss with LPCM. Are you saying the DG1000 has these isssues ?No Im not saying that. I havent a clue if the DG1000 has the same LPCM bass issues as alot of the other reciever lines have.
Its a technical explanation as to why its happening but essentially the issue evolves around the new audio formats from HD-DVD and blu-ray ...apparently the reciever should compensate for a LFE signal thats 10 db to low from the source ..The Denon 2807 ( and other denons) compensates and gets the bass correct. Other recievers however do not do the correct compensation for the 10db signal loss, therefore people complain about a lack of bass from hd and blu-ray...
You cant really compensate by turning up the LFE signal in your reciever by 10db ..becuase if you have any speakers set to small, they would essentially be "hot" by 10 db ..so darned if you do and darned if you dont.
Id check carefully if you have or are getting a blu-ray/ hd-dvd player ...otherwise you'd never see the problem.
Maybe somebody more technical could explain the 10 db loss of bass better then I could.
