Hi All,

Maybe a strange question, but if I use the analogue surround (x.1) inputs on a surround receiver, will the be passed on to the amps directly, or are they first converted to digital?

Thanks,
Peter

That's how I would do it. I only run an HTPC and a PS3 to my AVR and from that to a 50-inch monitor (no tuners or speakers in it) so I have a similar setup. I'd go with an AMD offering, cause their HDMI audio is better. Perhaps you could wait a few days or weeks until the new 7000 series start trickling down.

Hi Andy,

I was actually thinking of an all-in-one solution like this one: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_CPU...Board/AT5IONTI/

Is there a specific reason the AMD based HDMI is better?


I have also been looking at AVR's and found this one: http://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio-visua...=product_lineup

I might be able to ask a USA based friend to bring it along the next time he comes over. Right now it is rather cheap. Probably cheaper than any used ones I can get here, even old(er) ones.

In that respect it is weird here in Brazil... I saw a Pioneer integrated amp a couple of days ago, at least 20 years old, selling for R$ 2500 (close to U$ 1450). It was pretty banged up too :-)
