Greetings! I'm currently having trouble deciding on which solution to choose for my current and future AV needs. The new FMJ receiver or the older FMJ processor/power amplifier combination. From what I have speculated so far with my very limited AV knowledge is that in order to get the best from HD audio I will need a high spec bluray player with decent DAC's to decode and output 5.1 (in my case biamped) over multi channel analogue outputs. I have read that performance could suffer in order to fix any potential bass management and speak size configuration. I have test driven the AV9/P7 with my kit and overall was very impressed. I felt my BR5's where possessed by the devil himself. I couldnt believe the scale and clarity. I was blown away.. But on that token the AV9/P7 exposed some of the lower quality sources. Blurays via multi channel analogue and the Xbox360 via optical sounded insane. All tested without a sub. Im told if I upgrade to the MA GS range I could increase performance by 40%. Do we know for sure that an AV10 is in the works, surly the P7 would be future proof? As for the AVR600 all I can do is speculate until I actually get to listen with my own ears. (Hopefully on Wednesday in Coventry) From my perspective the idea of owning the latest Arcam supporting next gen audio formats is great. HDMI switching between my projector and Screen would be such a convenience. Upscalling maybe not such a requirement. But HD audio over HDMI could also be great. The question is how will the AVR600 fair with the older audio formats and Stereo. Some months ago it was mentioned to retail around £2300 but its looking more like £2700 which is surprising. Would be great to read some comments\suggestions from fellow Arcam'ers!!
