    Is it possible to get an amp with Video inputs and anoutput but without any onboard processing decoding functions?

    Looking for a powerful 2 channel amp that allows me to hook up 1 or 2 Video and Audio sources and only ouput a stereo signal alongside the selected Video source.

    So basically hooking up a Vhs Video, or a DVD unit, outputting to a Data projector and A large pair of stereo speakers

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    Andy

    One solutions is to add a high quality Video Switcher to a decent quality Stereo Amp of your choice.

    You could add a Zektor HDS4 Four Input Video + Stereo or Digital Audio switcher to pretty much any Amplifier you fancy.

    If the Stereo Amp has IR control all the better as you then teach the Zektor to switch video inputs in tandem with your choice of Input on the Stereo amp.

    See http://www.zektor.com

    Best regards

    there are a few Stereo AV receivers, one comes to mind is Marantz SR-4320.
    Not that powerful, 80 watts i guess but it does have video switching inside.

    Hi,
    I have a Rotel RB1070 2 channel amplifier and I also have a Arcam AVR300 receiver. Please fill me in with this, since I am new at this. Which is the best way of setting my unit? Should I bi-amp my front main left and right speakers using the Arcam 6 and 7 channel and hooking the Rotel 2 channel amp to the left and right surround back speakers or hook up the Rotel amp to the front main left and right speakers and hook up 6 and 7 channel for left and right surround back speakers? I notice either way gives me 7.1 surround but for music that is what confusing me. :D

    PS: I'm running all Polk Audio speakers...
    Center CSi5, Front L&R RTi10, RS,LS FXi3 and RSB,LSB RTi6
    12/15 Velodyne sub.
