Hi everyone haven’t been lurking here for a while, everything’s changes and I lost my log in as well !
So new but not really…
Anyhow I’m now going to have to accept that my days of analogue out from a player are over. I have an AV audio set up I’m very happy with Denon 3800 analogue out to AV2 F,R driven by an old 32.5/supercap which in line does sound better for AV than just the AV2. Then the AV2 feeds 7 135’s which feed a 5.1 Sonus Faber set up. Extrema front, elects amator rear and Cremona sub and centre.
I have tried the Oppo 205 and Panasonic 9000 to replace my Denon 3800 for 4K picture and hopefully as good analogue out… Alas the 3800 blows the only current analogue out 4K options into the weeds.
So I’m thinking it’s time for a HD processor and run HDMI in for audio. I don’t need video to touch the audio as it goes straight from the player to a Lumagen and then projector. So I’ll buy a good 4K machine with two HDMI out and send one to the Lumagen and one to the ‘new’ to me HD processor. I’m thinking of something like an old Anthem, Classe, Lexicon etc.
Anyone comment on the Classe 800. Realistically I will only use this for film so 2 channel is less of an issue for me, the processor will only need to decode HD audio and feed 5.1
Thoughts, experience and suggestions much appreciated
