    hey everyone,iv been researching a few av recievers recently, iv noticed all the ones with HDMI,are expensive.I can understand dvd players and visual sources to have HDMI, because it improves the picture quality.Is that why HDMI is installed into the AV RECIEVERS, to boost there sound performance or does it serve for other purposes.What are the benefits of HDMI on AV receivers, just want to know what im buying before i part with my cash.

    Thanks :clap:

    people usually connect sources to amps to switch them

    and as HDMI is the newest kid on the block they come at a slight premium

    if its got 1 hdmi input then you can plug a hdmi device in and then send the signal to your tv using something else like component
    or it may have multiple component and composite inputs and one hdmi output so you can connect all you deivces to your amp and then send the signal via the hdmi to the TV (sometimes with upscaling too)
