    Hi,

    I'm about to buy a AVR-250, but I have few questions left unanswered:

    1. Is the 250 able to decode DTS-24/96 ?
    2. Is there a way to put the unit in standby mode with front panel button ?
    3. I love the musicality of the 250 and I'm wondering what was the trade off made by designer to be able to deliver that kind of performance. What are the major drawback ?
    4. Is the video upconversion a gimmick or does it really work ?

    thanks all

    1. Yes
    2. Not as far as I'm aware
    3. No pre-outs for amp upgrades, no in put indicator leds and lower power output compared to AVR300, no auto setup feature
    4. No it's not a gimmick, yes it really works.
