Which A/V receiver in the $1500 to $2000 CDN price range does the best job upconverting?


Also, can any do as good of a job as a DVDO?

Denon 4306.


No, it cannot do as well as a standalone VP (it does not have good cadence detection), but it does pretty well. Check ecost and dakmart for refurbs.


Check out the Audioholics review of the 4306 and look at the HQV benchmark. (A DVDO iScan vp20 with precision deinterlacer card will get a perfect score on that test.)

Most likely you will be disappointed with the picture quality of upscaled video, as most AVRs in this range will not have great video scalers (good standalone video scalers will cost more than the price you will pay for these receivers).


Having said that there are few options with video scaling in the price range you are looking for - Pioneer Elite vsx-82txs/vsx-84txsi and Yamaha rx-v2700 (you can even check out last year's model rx-v2600. It should be cheaper than the current model).
