hello - it has been almost 20years since i bought a new reciever - i currently have a sony str-av780 as my base unit - i want to purchase a new reciever that is good for both home theater & audio w/ at least 100wpc - i want the tightest specs w/ the most bang for buck on the home theater side as well - i am leaning towards yamaha any advice would be very appreciated - i am looking in the 5-700.00 range - thank you sorry, i have been out of the audio market far too long!! - i will be using a pair of polk audio sda-2 speakers w/ this system
Some minor things. 2808-THD.05%,2105 .08%,1014 .09% Component Video Bandwidth 2805 and 2105 100Mhz 1014 40Mhz. All had about the same watts and inputs and outputs
don't know about the video bandwidth thing, but the .01-.04% difference in THD is completely irrelevant, it's like choosing a sports car by which one gets 0-60 in 4.5 versus 4.1 versus 4.4 seconds.
Guess what it comes down to is how much you want to spend, and how much you can really HEAR the difference for the extra dough. Conservative estimates are that maybe 90% of the population does not have audiophile hearing.
A lot of people like to imagine that they can hear the difference when in fact very few really can, the rest are just ego-tripping...viva capitalism! : )
hello again & thank you for all your help - i have narrowed down my choices to a yamaha 2400 or a denon listed here - i will be using this reciever for almost all audio rather then home theater but wanted the inputs & specs for future - everyone has there own "best" & i am glad i found this site - best to all
