Hello, I have had the CX-A5100 for a about a year and I would say the HDMI switching is almost instantaneous. I have an Oppo BDP 205 and Sony SCD-XA5400ES both using HDMI and I can switch between them very quickly. No way does it take 5 seconds. That's my experience.I was thinking of buying the CX-A5100 but the otherwise favorable review at Audioholics said the HDMI switching is unusually slow, I guess to reestablish the new handshake. Could anyone here do me a favor and time it?
I'm used to some delay, say 2-4 seconds, but 5 or more seems sketchy. I guess I could live with it but I'm curious what I should expect.
Thanks for your help.
