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?
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.
