Hi, I was wanting to buy an Amplifier with as large as possible variable audio delay (to fix lip sync) and thought about the Sony 1200ES but I was quickly put off by this deal breaker (for me at least) issue which is reported here ;- http://www.avforums.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3940188&postcount=243 > "...If i had ONE criticism of the 1200ES (and i assume it'll be the same for the 32/5200ESs too) it's that if you keep the volume button pressed like say for a couple of seconds, then the volume shifts very quickly. > Let me give you an example, i'm listening to the radio late at night. I have the volume set at -68.5. It's not loud enough. I therefore keep the 'up' volume button pressed for a second or two, it'll start to rise...-68.0, -67.5, -67.0 and then SUDDENLY jumps to -51.5!!! LOUD! > The only way to get around this is to keep pressing the volume button and then releasing it. Annoyingly, you have to wait about a second between each press otherwise it'll just jump like before if you're too quick with the key presses. > I can see the advantages of this too and for most people this isn't a problem and they would probably prefer it like that. But for me, i wish that Sony had just left a normal volume control as opposed to a time/speed dependent control. Or at least given the option of changing the setting in the menu..." I was wondering if there was an AV Amp. on the market on which the volume goes up nice and linearly (without sudden jumping) no matter what you do with the + and - volume buttons on the remote. That would be more important to me at the moment than adjustable audio delay (lip sync fix) but of course the latter would be a nice addition as well. Is there any Amp on the market that does this properly? Cheers, Alistair G.
