I'm looking to upgrade my AV receiver. I have an older Sony DA80ES receiver - good enough quality for me, but lacks DTS and component video switching.


I'm looking at another Sony - the STR-DB1070 - has everything the old one has (the DB series is supposed to be 'just under' ES quality), plus the DTS and component switching for two inputs. AND it can be had at an unbeatable price of just over $500.


I like the idea of being about to funnel the video from both my HTPC and my HD dish so everything can be switched from the receiver. But I've noticed that whenever a receiver mentions 'component video switching', they give a rating in mHz. Sony's is '50mHz'. I'm assuming that's a relative number to let you know how much/little the switching affects the quality of the output signal.


How does this rating sound to you? Any other comments?


P.S. PLEASE no recommendations for $1500+ receivers - I want to stay married... :)

50 mHz should provide adequate bandwidth for video switching. Have fun.
