Am thinking of getting the Yamaha RX-V650 to solve Plasma / Sky+ lipsync issues. Anyone got one and any comments on how good it is, and whether delay function is OK and usable ??
Thanks.

Have a Plasma, grab an RXV750 for the video up-conversion to component. Easier for video switching while being rather helpful for installation.

I'm beginner with these but also considering RX-V650 or alternatively H/K avr 230. Where and why would I need the "video up-conversion to component"?
Where is it needed?

Thanks! :lease:

Can you actually get an RXV-750 as avland says that only YAMAHA DSP-AX750 (hence no receiver). Does this mean no fm reciever for this model in UK?

Correct - Yamaha aren't releasing the receiver version here in the UK, but they have said that they will provide warranty support if you can get hold of one from elsewhere in Europe.

I guess I can live without the receiver - it's just that it would have been nice to have something other than my clock radio. I can never be bothered t retune the clock radio.

Well 750 amp is £450 here and here if that helps - still pricey, but I don't think any of the German retailers have the receiver in stock yet.

Yamaha are being very slow in stocking up the German mail order firms. Many poeple on here are still having problems buying the 1400 and its been out for a few months now!

I looked at HifiBitz and I'm wondering whether it would be worth purchasing the 3 year extended warranty. Thing is (touch wood), my Sony STRDB-940 has been going from 2001 to now without problems.

I am also considering the RXV-650 , to go with some KEF KHT 2005.2 speakers and the new Panasonic 42" viera plasma. I have been recommedned the Yamaha AX750SE but am put off by the lack of tuner and the only diffrence I can see to the RXV650 is 100w vs 95w power. The 650 is also c 100quid cheaper.

Im not familar with the lip sync problem mentioned earlier in this thread, but I would need to play my sky box through whatever I get. Anyone got any views on the merits of the RXV 650 vs the AVX 750 SE?

Lennox,
I believe the 750 also upconverts to component should you wish to pass all your video inputs through the amp, useful if you don't want a load of cales going to your plasma.

Thanks Steve, I appreciate your reply. That sounds a nice feature. Do you think ther would be any noticeable deterioration in quality by connecting through the amp rather then direct to the plasma? Also can you advise what the issue is on the lyp synching point earlier in the thread?

Some say there is a deterioration in PQ if you pass your video signal through the amp. If there is, my view is that it is absolutely minimal.

The Lip-sync feature is very useful if you are watching Sky with a Plasma, as it is common to find vision and sound out of sync. The amp will allow you to input a sound delay such that everything is back in sync. I would not buy an amp without this feature if you are planning to watch Sky on plasma.
