With the advent of DVI connections for video output, does anyone know of reasonably prices A/V amplifier systems with DVI outputs and switching? The only amp that I have found that has this capability is the expensive Sony STR-DA900ES which sells for around $4K. I understand that other brands will be coming out with DVI connection in the near future but I haven't heard any specifics.
As far as I know no other receivers exist yet with DVI and/or HDMI connections. Obviously in the next year or two there will be plenty---but not yet.
The Marantz 8500 offers DVI switching and retails for $1599 - and it's sound is to contend with. If you want to spend more money the Denon AVR-5805 ($6000) or the new samsung that will retail for $5000 are there (and personally I think marantz kicks them in the behind)
