    Help needed. Setting up av processor and 2 channel amp with no AV Bypass. Input trim/volume levels

    Just set up my old av processor to use in conjunction with my Arcam 2 channel amp as I was missing having rear speakers. I've always used amps with HT bypass in the past but this particular amp doesn't have that option and as I'm using a processor and not an av receiver, a speakers switch isn't...

    AV Processor to replace Cyrus AV 8

    Hi all, I love my AV 8, but am very frustrated that Cyrus has given up on the AV front and have no newer AV solution to provide various HDMI inputs and the video / audio switching, etc. This currently means I have to use another external HDMI switcher, which is just starting to get a little...

    Question What (used?) AV processors should I look at?

    Hi, at the moment I am using my old Yamaha AV receiver as a processor via its pre-outs. I have a strong suspicion that my current Linn Aktiv power amp and speakers completely outclass what, at the end of the day, was a fairly inexpensive AV receiver. It doesn't sound bad exactly, but there's a...
