    :lease:

    Please excuse the obvious question but as a novice I need some help - what is Audio Delay.

    I have a Marantz 4300 and I thinking about getting a Panasonic 32" LCD TV, will audio delay be an issue?

    I am currently connected to a Panasonic 32" CRT TV and do not experience any problems.

    Thanks

    DVD players often decode the audio on a disc quicker than the video, therefore there is a delay in the video that puts the audio out of sync. This is moist noticewable when people are talking as their lips don't move in ti,me with the sound. This delay is often made worse by the additional digital processing done in a plasma or LCD display. Audio delay in AV receivers can be used to bring the sound & video back into sync.

    Some poeple are more likely to see the delay than others. If you don't notice it then there is no problem, but if you do it can be a major pain.
