I have a 9th Gen Elite Kuro Plasma. I was considering the Denon 3808 receiver to pair up with my Klipsch speakers, but have recently read that the video processing in the Denon lacks. How would it compare to the Kuro's internal video processing? In other words, should I have the receiver upscale/deinterlace the signal and the TV simply receive a 1080p signal (which i would assume the tv would leave alone), or should i do a pass through on the receiver and allow the tv to do the work.


If the latter is the case, I might need to relook at which receiver to choose. i want the best picture possible, and maybe my tv is already giving me that with its internal processing. If that is true, a less expensive receiver might work.


My requirements for a receiver are:


1. Audyssey MultiEQ XT, etc.

2. Ethernet connectivity for upgrades, etc.

3. At least 100W x 7 (7.1 capable)

4. Dolby True and DTS HD (latest codecs) compat.

5. 4 HDMI 1.3 inputs, and 1 out

6. 1080p upscaling/deinterlacing if tv quality can be improved


Thanks.

I personally would let your set do the scaling, deinterlacing. I would suggest a

Pioneer Elite Receiver like the VSX-03TXH or the SC-05.

Ditto. Kuro > Faroudja.


Instead of paying for VP in a receiver, I'd instead pay for ISF calibration. A good one should be able to calibrate all of your sources, and for every source, have different calibrations for night vs day viewing.


If you really are serious about VP, you might start looking at stand alones. There is a subforum here for that.

Would you say KURO > Reon? What standalone would you recommend for similar pricing?

I don't know, but Pioneer has such a good rep for displays that I'm not sure how much improvement could be had. The only way to get Reon at an affordable price is with Onkyo, AFAIK.


But, in all honesty, I really do think your money is better spent on calibration than VP, considering you have a Kuro. I mean if video quality is really important to you.

You're probably asking the wrong guy, and you are definitely asking in the wrong sub-forum. Unfortunately, these devices can be very expensive. The only thing I can think of that is affordable, and possibly a worthy purchase is the DVDO Edge, which uses Anchor Bay (which can be found at least in Yamaha receivers I believe).


I'll tell you what though. . . I don't know how new or old all this stuff is to you, but once you see a good BD transfer on a Kuro, I'm not so sure you are even going to care about SD processing. I mean... some people do.. not me.


I've compared the vp between very good and very bad SD players, namely Tosh HD-A35 and Pana BD-30. Oh, I can tell some difference with my JVC pj coupled with 75 sq ft screen, but this difference is simply marginal when comparing either with native hidef, IMO.
