    ok thanks will use the Yamaha then for the cinema system and the Pioneer for the PC system.. I know both of these units are dated but think the DSP on the Yamaha might perform better than the Pioneer Neo 6. Or would someone recommend just buying a new modern unit which has HDMI inputs and better sound processing ...
